Now we're off topic we should only be talking about the Mississippi, where we love to camp right beside the river.

Our fearless rally leader (and suspect polluter) will come yell at us for topic drift soon... just do what I do - blame it on Dave.

I poured grey iron castings in a foundry, killed 2 million hogs at 600 an hour, lived 55 feet above the earth in a lookout tower for three months and took dozens of young boys who had never been camping into 22 states they did not call home. Managed a 4,000 acre municipal park system and collected bald faced hornet nests as a hobby, and raised three Valedictorians. Couldn’t have done any of it without my wife Rita. I’m not hard to find and not easily intimidated. Blame me, the gnats haven’t been bad lately. Hey Eric, how you doin?

That last one, those valedictorians, that's the biggy.

You learn a lot about parents when you meet the kids.
Proud to claim you and Rita and Jake as friends.

Yeah, I looked it up. It's a word.

We made our reservations for the Mississippi River Rendezvous in September. We had so much fun at the Niagara Grape Escape last year that we decided to do this one this year as well as the Niagara rally. Looking forward to making some new Escape friends. Happy 2018 camping everyone.

Aha! You guys are using Dave'e trick of reserving starting on Wednesday or earlier to get the best sites!

Starting in Mid September the weather starts to cool and I’m reminded of Chuck Berry performing Maybelline. “The heat went down, the motor cooled down and that’s when I heard that highway sound”. The rally the week after Mississippi at Land between the Lakes is a very good rally too. We’re looking forward to Davey Crockett in Mid October this year also. Kentucky and Tennessee are great fall color states. Good friends, blazing campfires, crunchy leaves, and a cold libation to soothe the savage beast. How can you beat it? Jake is waiting for a call from some of his camping dog buddies to compare notes on this Fall’s rally plans.

Obviously I'm not as good at this as Dave because 114 and 118 were already gone this morning. But at an Escape rally it's all good because you are surrounded by great people.

I would assume that the sites in close proximity to Iowa Dave are considered very desirable. Hopefully that information will be posted on this forum for those that are considering attending.


** I was not aware this was an Escape only Rally until I read post #29 , so thank you for the information **
