Love your photos, the one with Pete and Linda at the back of the trailer reminds me how hot it gets. We are booked and were promised C122, we'll see if that works out.

um...yeah that would be good .....but will the boat fit on the truck ( or in the 23) otherwise you'll need to split your towing time .... alternately could could turn 5 into a lucky number..

Jordan, you might look at the 11 "interior" C sites across the road west from the clubhouse. That area has the least traffic and a huge grassy area in the center.

Can those that have reserved for 2020 Rally tell me how they got through to RV Park? Any reservations made today,Wednesday? It seems no one answers phone and email and left message makes you wonder if you'll get a call back?

I sent an email describing the sites I was interested in and followed that up a couple hours later with a phone call. I ended up leaving a message, which was returned about an hour later.

I have my site ( C11 ) and confirmation number. We will see what happens when I check in.

Finally got through and Ryan there said he was alone and swamped with calls, etc. He was great with reservation process and now looking forward to meeting others.

I previously heavily modified our Pleasure Way Lexor TS and now with E19 starting all over. Years back, I was the 1st to place a Lagun in a Pleasure Way, and now they install from factory. Most of all it was a great way of extending galley counter space along with dining.

From my notes

Here are some notes I made.

C54 and C55 flooded real bad in a 2018 rain storm...about 10 inches deep.

Yellow 64, 65, 66, 67, 68 also had some water sitting around after that same storm and it can be dusty if dry.

Yellow 59 near the water in the lower area was a great spot in 2018 other than massive amounts of things falling out of the trees all along that row. Left the window open on the truck for 1/2 an hour and the seat was covered. If you have an electric awning make sure you have a way to brush it off as the stuff may be to much for the built in brush to handle. May involve you having a ladder to check and operate the broom.

Yellow 112 is a very short site...best for a 17 or smaller.

This year the lower area by the water...yellow and blue was bug city as mentioned. They did not bite...but were everywhere. Had to use your teeth as a filter so you didnít swallow any. Fortunately we were able to move further away from the lake so we could open the door for the open house. 2018 had no bugs in that area.

That big open space of green grass across the road from the clubhouse is of course the septic field for the club house. Never has been a problem...but if does go bad...

Here is a picture that someone else took of the Rally.

I have added a few ruff site numbers that could be off by 2 or 3 sites...just to give you a general idea of this area.

I would have to say that this photo does not do the camp site justice as I think it looks better in person. They are always doing something to improve it.

I was told that ETI has sites C60 through C70.

I think the original posting from Karl said that Escape would start taking rally registration calls on the 20th. I called once today and was asked to leave a number. I did not as I was not going to be able to talk as we were hanging a tv on the wall. Then I called again and left my number. About an hour later around 3 pm central, I called and immediately got a registration person. She was super nice and looked up our previous registrations. I booked the same site as we had in 2017 : C-1. She sent us a confirmation even before I got off the phone with her. What a nice professional person. $60 deposit. Four Nights; Thursday through Saturday leave on Sunday AM. Let the good times roll.
Iowa Dave, Rita the Ace Navigatorette and Jake the Wonder Dog.

Aaahh Dave, you need a math refresher- Thur-Sat is 3 nights, not 4. I'd be glad to tutor you in exchange for some beer.......
