I'm booked, as well as 6 other Escapes, the most popular brand registered so far!

And... you should be there by now! We can't come in until Thursday, but looking forward to it!

Can you tell me: does "full hookup" include cable for the t.v. (who knew there'd be an interesting football game on Saturday morning). Also, is there cell phone service? (Inquiring for a friend.)

Looks like the weather is decent and should stay that way! See y'all soon!

I'm stuck in Norfolk. The Navy writes big checks.

I figured the timing was bad for y'all this year, Robert, with the house and a move-in perhaps?

No cable TV, cell service is spotty.

Sounds perfect. No joke. I'm wired/plugged in/online almost 24/7. A few days with none of that sounds great.

I have both AT&T & Verizon cell service, Verizon data a bit stronger & faster. For specifics, check this post.

For those interested, I've started a web page of photos from the rally. I'll add to the page as the rally continues. 2018 Matagorda Madness Rally, Matagorda Bay Nature Center, TX

Gosh, all the pictures have sunshine, something I have not seen in weeks here in Pennsylvania, the land of grey skies.

Well, we did have a bit of rain & cloudy days, but overall, I can't complain about the 70F - 80F weather.

I added the group photo, and some from the pot luck to finish off the 2018 Matagorda Madness page.

Thanks Jon for the link and for all the photos. Crowd seemed a bit smaller this year than last year? Anyway, too bad we missed it. Maybe next year if work permits.

One of the locals. I don't think he liked seeing the whites of my eyes.
