RE: Escapade 2010????


Thanks, Bob.

I've updated the list above with more people interested in caravaning in.

Right now it looks like all of the A1's are in Elkhart campground and can make their own way.

We have a lot of A2's but a couple of them can't get to Goshen until 11am.

Darrell and Judy will be in before Friday but not sure where they are staying yet.

I'm wondering if anyone who is already up there knows whether it is reasonable for 9 rigs and toads to be able to stay together from the abandoned Kmart to the fairgrounds or will we be plagued by turns and stoplights to split us apart?

Also, can anyone up their confirm the GPS coordinates for the abandoned Kmart since RangerPaul was making educated guess from GoogleEarth?

Hugs, C

We've changed our arrival date to the 10th so we can join the caravan. We are still A2. Can you add us to Friday's list?

Also, we'll be at the Elkhart CG Thursday nite, but I dont know when we'll be pulling in. We're leaving from NW Chigo suburbs around 5 PM.

Now that Penny and Paul have moved to Friday anyone out there going in on Saturday? Been a little out of it this week. We are officially retired as of Friday. Had a big party and today had to get the Rv to the dealer for a few small warranty issues. We are an A1. This is our first ever Rally and we are going to try and attend as many full timer bootcamp seminars as possible. :) It will be our first real trip and we are excited to get going.

We'll look for you. We hope to get in around 4, but I (Paul) have some "Blue" chores to do before we can park.

We went over and saw some of the advance crew and staff at the Escapade yesterday afternoon and evening. I think you will all have a good time since that group is having a good time already, including that Bob Guy.

We are in a motel in Mishawaka while our motorhome gets some fiberglass work done and the motorhome won't be ready until late next week. We might pop over to see people but it is a 50 minute one way trip and only one day will have walk ins, next Wednesday, and that is the day we might be moving back into the motorhome.

We are here at Escapade with the gang of RV-Dreamers along the northeast fence. We came in from Elkhart Campground in one of the caravans on Friday.  We are in the HitchHiker by the gate.

SURPRISE!!!!!

We just couldn't miss seeing everyone!

Howard and I arrived Sunday afternoon!  We are staying in the Best Western. 

We would love to meet up with everyone.  How about we meet Monday (tomorrow) at 11:30 - 1:00 for lunch at the Nelson Pavillion.

We are going to be on the Fulltimer's panel Monday night and then sadly we leave early on Tuesday morning to get back up to our workamping job in Michigan.

Hope to see everyone!

The Escapade was great. Learned so much now we need time to decompress and digest all that stuff. Enjoyed meeting some of the Dreamers. We missed the lunch because we were on the computer ridding ourselves from some of our debt (I didn't get a chance to check the forum). Postalpair, got your message, thanks. I am sure we will meet along the way. Now on to new adventures!

We had a great time at the rally.  We learned so much, and like JanieD said, it will take some time to decompress and process everything we learned.  We did the Boot Camp track, and have a notebook full of information to work through!

We enjoyed seeing some of the RV Dreamers we met a few years ago at Branson.  We also enjoyed making some new friends and hope to see you all again down the road....whenever it is that we actually get on the road!
