Good thing Eric that you and Mary had that double site being so close to Dan and Martha! Hope you're looking forward to seeing our nearly new 5.0TA although you may have seen it last year at Osoyoos, it was down by the lake not far from us.

This may be the only recorded case where being next to me at a campground is a "good thing". Actually I was sold on getting an Escape before last years rally, I just needed Eric and Mary to nudge Martha closer to the decision.

Adrian, congratulations on the brand new to you 5.0TA. It will be great to see it and you both.

We sure lucked out getting fine neighbors in that "buddy" site last year!

Not anymore! I've been upgraded to the adult loop. Or did I get a downgrade?!

Hi Nindy
It’s not the adult loop. It’s the “would you people start acting like adults loop.” How did your bearing service go? Hope your ready to roll on the butterfly patrol. My milkweed is up, wish I had more. I’ll have to
do a better job of Seed collecting this year.
Having a pretty good pollination session in my orchard lots of bumblebees and a fair number of honeybees. As the old song goes “See you in September”. What do you want for the torque wrench prize this year?

The bearing job went pretty well (I think I described it on another thread) except for the part where I couldn't get the old seals out and had to go to the Firestone store which I had already checked would be open on Sunday. They popped them out for free for me. Have already been on a trip since then. Roaring River State Park last week, hiking around with state biologists looking for butterflies and beautiful plants. So fun. Glad your orchard pollinators are doing well!

I leave again next week for my Ozarks property. I would really like to replace my two handle faucet with a one handle model. Took the old one off and found out the plate underneath is glued pretty heavily. I think that's not a job for me. I'm also pretty bad at drilling big holes exactly where I need them. Will be home a few weeks in June to get that done by a professional.

Ha, not sure I could ever be so lucky to win the torque contest again! I will probably overthink it and come in last place!

Trailer: Escape 19 on order
Posts: 4
Hi,

I'm Mary and was one of the newbies last year who met many of you on Saturday afternoon. I truly appreciated your kindness and expertise, as well as those peeks at your trailers. I was very impressed! This experience helped solidify my decision to order an Escape 19, which I did in Chilliwack this past May. My egg hatches in late November.

I planned to get back to the rally this year, but my employer scheduled a mandatory meeting the Saturday and Sunday of the rally. Really, the one weekend I had REALLY IMPORTANT PLANS!! I'm so disappointed, but am thinking of visiting the rally when I can, earlier on Friday, with a Friday evening departure.

I'm hoping that I'll have the opportunity to meet many of you again. You're a great group!

Mary
