No problem! I'll just stay out of the shade.

I had a question this morning from Kymooses about the Goshen Rally agenda. We'll be posting more specific information on the FROG website as a few more items become final, but I thought some others might be interested. Here's what I sent to Travis (Kymooses)

We've completed the schedule for a lot of the rally, but there's still some up in the air. We'll post more specifics on the website, but here are some of the major items:

Camping is included MTuWTh. Additional nights are available before and after the Rally at $22 per night. We have the campground available on Sunday night for early arrivals and on Friday night for late departures. You can come even earlier and stay later, but you might have to stay in a different area just outside the gate, but with full hookups until Sunday.

Breakfast will be served on TuWThF mornings -- three full hot breakfasts, and something a little lighter on Friday for folks who want to get on the road early, if I recall right.

Buffet dinners are included on MTuTh, with dinner on your own on Wed. Entertainment will be a magician after dinner on Mon.; a "clean" and (I think) hilarious comedian after dinner on Tu; and a band on Th.

On Wednesday we're leaving the schedule open to explore the area on your own. There will be some optional tours available at extra cost. I'm pretty sure that they're: (1) South Bend, Notre Dame, Studebaker Museum, Oliver Mansion (you won't believe this place) and lunch at the Tippecanoe Mansion; (2) Grist Mill and Garden tour, riverboat cruise, lunch, Amish barn tour; (3) Amish backroads tour, Amish shops, lunch at Amish home. (Don't quote me on the details, Cindy is working these out with the Convention & Visitors Bureau.)

Factory tours are probably on Tuesday, technical seminars on Tuesday or Thursday, Amish bake sale in there somewhere, swap meet, games, and more.

Hope this helps, and we'll look forward to seeing you there!

Bob, the RV/MH Hall of Fame and Museum is in Elkhart. Depending on which plants we visit, it might be possible to work that in. Otherwise, it's about a 30-minute drive from the fairgrounds in Goshen.

This sounds like so much fun, but have to wait and see how many mom's will be due to have babies in August! The life of a student midwife.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

Heads up for those of you in the Southwestern U.S. (or thinking about going there):

Go to the thread "2012 Tucson Regional Rally" for the latest information on something coming up in the Southwestern U.S. next year. (Gee, from that title, you'll never guess what it might be.)

Sent in our registration today for Goshen. Sure looking forward to seeing all the FROGs show up. Gonna be a decent haul 2200km one way but that is the fun of it all, then off to Barrie Ontario after. I am trying to justify a detour to Indy to see the Moto GP bikes but who knows.

Thanks again Bob..
