Only 90 miles north of Madison... Will pull in around 10 AM tomorrow and get things started.... Gonna have to replace my MH GPS.... My Magellan Roadmate cramped out a couple of days ago.... Hopefully, someone will have a "show price" on one at the rally....

Actually, the best GPS out there is a Garmin RV760LMT - it is specifically targeted for the RV crowd. Enter your rig specifications in the unit and it will route you around low bridges, switchbacks, and weight restricted roadways!

If they don't have one on show special, you could always order from Amazon and have it shipped to the CG

My Magellan had the same features - heavy emphasis on HAD!!!! Yeah - I've already zeroed in on the Garmin unit... Hopefully, a vendor will offer it here...

Packing us in really fast... We are in lot "L" and luckily in a level spot.... Don't even have to worry about using levelers... Of course, Superchief (Craig) managed to get a paved lot.... I told him he'll have to deal with all the heat from the pavement and I won't.... lol....

They think they will have about 6,000 coaches here and from the way they are pouring in I don't doubt it.... Actually starts Wednesday but I'm amazed by the numbers that are arriving in our area hourly.....

So it's time to re-title to the "adventure ends" ??

Earnest, you may be glad you got out of here when you did.... Forecast low for here in Thayne, WY tomorrow morning is 35 degrees!!! Bbbrrrrrrrrr!!

Just kidding.... The low temps are only for a couple of nights; then the lows/highs get back to the normal 50's/high 70's - low 80's. After 100+ at Yosemite for the three weeks I was there, the weather here is HEAVEN!!!

Boowho??

You are in some fancy company with that Dutch Star and Entegra.

Well folks our. "Adventure" has taken a major detour - I have my wife in the emergency room here in Madison with a possible stroke.... Cat scan look ok but will do a MRI shortly to see what it shows.... Definitely have something going on just not sure what at the moment...

Prayers would be greatly appreciated...
