You would need to try it. The rye bread recipe is another one that has developed over 40 years...

I so miss rye bread, and yours looks so yummy that I went online and found three gluten-free recipes to try. Based on my experience with making other breads, I know that none will taste like "real" rye bread, (and gluten-free breads have problems with rising). Still, something's generally better than nothing! Thanks for the inspiration!

Let's focus on Iowa and Illinois and Ohio for something in October hopefully.
Sorry I am so late responding to this comment, but I have been out camping in my new 5.0TA.

I would strongly suggest you to consider Michigan! Michigan is in my top 5 states and for great reasons. The West coast of Michigan is without equal. The sand dunes are a thousand feet high and access to water is everywhere. The camping is great, the water sports are extremely varied and everywhere. The inland lakes are even better than the big lakes and the rivers can mostly be floated. The fishing is always outstanding!

There are cliffs, bluffs and views into the very clear lakes. Michigan has more faces than almost any other state. The only downside is the state bird, the Mosquito.

Here are a few pics. The last one includes my two daughters.

Sorry but the mosquito is the state bird of Minnesota not Michigan And since we're adjacent to MN our provincial bird in Manitoba is also the mosquito. So far this year we've only seen one but that will likely change.

I was impressed with Michigan's Algonac SP being right on the canal connecting the lakes, but the daily out of state fees and other non native fees turned me off. Iowa, like Dave pointed out offers discounts as do the feds. Indiana charges similarly to Michigan and they also have dunes on the eastern side of Lake Michigan!

Like many on here I’ve camped every state in the upper Midwest and of course many other states and provinces. In states where the legislature has mandated revenue generation to the degree that operations for specialty activities (camping) must be self supporting through fees, from a philosophical standpoint, I can agree with this. However in no way can I agree with out of state fees and do not agree with profit driven recreation in the public sector. I’ve camped Michigan many times, Upper and Lower peninsula. It’s nice but I do not like their fee structure. I camped Algonac a couple years ago and it was a zoo with virtually no site to site inspection on a regular basis. So I will be visiting thousands of alternative parks before I return (as in never). I support operations I know to be professionally operated in my opinion.
I see governments everywhere spending dollars with very little positive return, including my own county and state. Yet fees continue to increase.

I can't comment on the fees. I just can't remember. But I would caution you if you are planning on visiting the Indiana Dunes (Michigan City). I was born and raised in South Bend Indiana, that exact coastline was our target all thru high school and beyond. I am not going to besmirch the area, but I will say this. It is never even considered as a choice.

Michigan is unique. Nothing is even close if you like Great Lakes lifestyle. They claim to be the beer state. They mean it! I'm looking at you Jim!

It sounds like they overcharge on the fees, but OMG! I would also give very high marks to Wisconsin's lake district as well as Minnesota's lake areas. I love all of that and consider it special. Michigan has four great lakes and is mostly sand and gravel. It is wild! Even the ditches have big fish in them. For those of us that have come to know it, there is nothing in comparison.

I like to think I get around too, like many of you. I have seen lots of this craton, and I know this to be true. One boat ride or hike to Pictured Rocks National Shoreline and you should be hooked. Or go cherry picking in Traverse bay. Make sure you have at least 10 perch sandwiches along the way. They will all be fresh.

One word of caution right now. Lake Michigan is as high as it has ever been right now. South Haven (our favorite) has closed down the entire marina due to this. You cannot walk out on any peers right now, they are too slippery. The very long walks on the beach have been shortened or eliminated due to extreme high water. There are areas you can still walk.

Okay you guys take the mosquitos, we have giant horse flies!

Mosquito? Wait a minute, I have been in Minnesota and I was told this flyer is the state bird.

BBQ

Has anyone used or considered this charcoal unit?
Looks intriguing. I am working up a pros and cons list.

I have an . Propose to the company you will be a field tester for them in extensive camping test conditions and will document your use in this forum for the summer. They provide the grill for free. Then for every escape owner that buys one with the company “coupon” you post you they get $10 off their purchase price and/or free Shipping. You get a free grill, Escape owners get a discount and the company gets their product Introduced to a discrimInating market. It’s a win win win.
