OC is right this will be number 4. Unless you count the very FIRST international rally at Branson, Mo. HA-HA This will be #4 in Goshen. F.R.O.G. can you answer the question 4 or 5?

It's the 4th "official" FROG International Rally. I had a V-Lite at the 1st Rally in 2012 and again in 2013 and 2014. For 2015 I have a new Cedar Creek 34RL. Forest River, FROG Bob and Cindy are truly amazing hosts and the friendships become long term. It's a "must attend" event.

Yes 2012 was the first Forest River Official FROG rally
BUT
Actually the 1st International FROG rally was May 2011 in Branson MO. started by a group here on this forum in 2010.
We actually came up with the idea and name FROG.

After that Forest River figured it was a great idea and started theirs in 2012 in Goshen.

No big deal but its fun to see how a great idea expanded to thousands of FROGs and so many rally's all over the USA.

Yes Youroo, that would be us. Wolcott is next door to us; we're in Cheshire. Will you still be here this weekend? Any time for a visit?

Sorry folks, I did not mean to offend. Please accept my apology.


That graphic has been circulating my office - it was given to me this morning because I had been extoling the virtues of the Forest River techs and I took it at face value (i.e. Jedi Master techs). I did not consider it would offend.


Again Apologies.

Agree.

And to get back on what the tread is about, I can't imagine how Bob and Cindy are going to handle the dinner crowd. The past two years folks started lining up 30 minutes before dinner was going to be served. By the time the caterer was ready for dinner service the line was wrapped around the building. I sure hope everyone brings plenty of patience with them this year since it's going to be a full house.

Someone advised bringing an RV extension cord (30 or 50A) but I ask what about the associated voltage drop with those 850+ RV extension cords. Has anyone given thought to rental power (generators) that will provide peak-power (3:00 - 8:00 pm daily) ????? Inquisitive minds . . . .

May give me a chance to check out my Hughes Autoformer.....
