Dave,
Free beer at the Coors plant in Golden, Colorado. Three each of their assorted offerings, so bring Rita to get extra tickets.
Bill

Jim,
We will be going north on I 25 then on two lane to Ogalllala Neb today. As a hoarder I have a few old badges. Does anybody collect these or assorted shoulder patches? I have a few of those too. Bill, thanks for the beer tip, maybe next time through we wil stop off.

Did Coors start making beer? I thought it was beer flavored sparkling water....

We did get to use the trailer in late July. Went to North Dakota to visit our daughter. She came down to Lake Sakakawea and stayed with us.

Altogether we spent eight nights in ND and SD state parks, had a great time and learned a lot about the trailer. Spent two nights with no hookups and three of us in the trailer, glad we got two 6V.

Got to meet Art M. and see the Cardinals Nest at Lake Sakakawea State Park. It was nice to meet another Escape owner then get home, change the calendar to August and there was the Cardinals Nest.

Reservation open

Admittedly, this posting is somewhat self serving. Site 118 at Thompson Causeway has opened up during the rally weekend. If you are planning on coming this is a real nice site. Why is it self serving and what are the negatives?, first, it's next to our site and if you don't like to be next to a quiet, helpful guy and his gracious bride, it's not for you. Second, I don't care who you are, I'd rather camp next to your tent or fiberglass trailer than a bus or a 5 th wheel, with 6 slide outs pulled by an idling diesel truck. There you go, I think it's a pull through that's 100 feet long, even a towing rookie could get into. If it isn't, I'll back you in and level you up. There will be no trouble with your bubble.

Dave's new business "Full Service Campsite Setup" offered for free. I hope somebody scores this deal.

He will probably check the torque on your wheels for you also.

I'll check your tire pressures too, and as value added I'll test drink a couple of your beers to make sure it's not skunky or poisoned by an enemy.

Give him the whole 12 pack of some good brew and he might do your wheel bearings if you follow him home.... on the other hand if you give him enough free beer he might follow you home...
