Thumbs up Craig N Deb - Great Job @ Cape Girardeau.

Hats off to Craig N Deb for setting up our newbie rally with a few veterans there to keep us under control. I think the final count was 7 buses and 1 5ver. IL, TX, MO, AR & IN were represented if I have that correct.

We never got a chance to rumble with the St. Louis area Winnebago group. However, I did wear my colors on a great bicycle ride along a pretty nice bike path through town on Saturday.

Weather was great. The CG was well organized with very friendly staff. One of the campers had a handicap issue and the CG immediately recognized that and put them on a handicap spot with concrete instead of gravel to make things easier. We were all together except that the handicap site was a few doors down but well within eye sight of the group.

The CG was a bit soggy in a few places due to lots of rain over the previous couple weeks but it wasn't wide spread at all. In fact, I think Sandee was the official "Muddy Shoe" collector of the group.

Park maintenance was clearly important to the CG management. BTW, this is a GS park. The worst part was when leaving the park there is a rather busy 4 lane road with a 50 MPH limit. Left turn outs of the CG during busy hours can be hard because traffic from the right is coming over a hill and you can't see it easily from a toad and is only a little better from the higher seat in a Class A.

Excellent CG pick, weather cooperated, really nice group of folks. There was only one problem...Monday was next and those of us that still were on a working schedule had to leave.

Thanks to all that were part of our mini rally and we need to do it again next year. BE SAFE!

It's hard to convey the fun, the excitement and I must add the relief of planning for this, our maiden trip in our MH. The excitement started weeks before, when we finally settled on a site and date, the fun started shortly after and lasted through out the trip there, while there and the trip home. Now the relief was when we brought 7 camping units from such a wide area plus 1 camper drove in for the day without her trailer just to visit, and the laughs and smiles were endless.

If all the people I meet while RVing in the future are as nice as this group, then I will be RVing for a long time.
Hope everyone had a safe trip home and I look forward to seeing you again. Craig, you had a great idea that worked out well. I'll be keeping up with your repairs so keep good records.

Thanks again to the national inspection committee for the wonderful ribbons recognizing some of our campers!

Cape Trip

Hi to all from that was on the Cape Girardeau trip. Jim, Abbie and I really enjoyed meeting everyone. Hope we can all meet again in the future.

Craig, just thought I would tell you I just watched "Gran Torino" and remembered that I actually had seen it before. I have to say it was a good movie.

We have a problem with getting our front leveler's down as in they won't come down at all so Jim has been working with that today; therefore, he hasn't had a chance to work on the group picture yet. As soon as he gets it edited I will try to determine how to get a copy to anyone that wants a copy.

Thanks to you and Tim for getting the trip together.

Ok Cape Crew, Mary and I have found two maybe three weeks starting after July 8th that we have open. Need your suggestions on some neat places to see in your areas. Ginny,Jim no offense, but well most likely travel North to escape some heat and humidity. If you have some suggestions on things to see as well as places to stay please let us know. Our sons wedding moved to June so we are hitting the road after our July 4 th trip.
Oh yes, any of you are invited to join our "see the world tour".
Cape Girardeau, MO-done that!

Hi Tim,
I would have several places that you should check out!
1: Door County, Wisconsin! Beautiful and plenty of things to check out!
2: Galena, Illinois! Very pretty and a very cool town!
3: Starved Rock, Illinois! Lots of history and so much to see.

As a matter of fact I would take the river north from your place up the Illinois side into Wisconsin about 1/4 of the way into WI, then cruise across Wisconsin and shoot up to Door County spend some time there and then cruise south along Lake Michigan and you will find some very cool things to see and do! I would say that would be a great trip!
Just my opinion! LOL
I hope you are well Tim! We hope to see you soon!

Hey no offense to us. We are leaving in June and dont plan on coming home until September when the heat becomes semi-bearable. We are also going to Colorado. Maybe we could get a group to meet there.
