This has been our first year so we have mixed feelings. Yes the meals could be better but this was a new cater service for FR and they are aware of the problems. I can bring my own flat ware so that is no issue. The service and repairs we received from Lippert & FR more than covered any costs we spent coming here so no way I can complain about the weather. Didn't like not being able to take a daily shower in my own rig; I'm retired military so I know how to deal with spit baths. Final tally, we will be back and we will forever be Forest River customers.

If you can't find something there you like?? Should just stay out of bakeries!! We get to that area 3 or 4 times a year!! If I'm going east my left side tires start to lock up. Auto steers toward the bakery. My car even know the best !!!

As to the mud; well it is a fairground and no one can predict the weather including the weathermen.

Sounds like most had a good time considering. Just think about if the rally was in Batton Rouge, LA. Those poor people. Jeez.

We had a great time, very fun week😀🐸

Only time will tell how the rally will change next year or the year after since they are at their max capacity of RV's and people. Plus who knows how long Frog Bob wants to continue on as the head FROG over the rally. A lot can change over the next year including the leadership of Forest River since most of the leadership could all retire in the near future.


I'm sure it is extremely expensive to offer Free Service for a week straight to that many RV's so I'm sure that will change sooner than later as well. Especially with RV's companies consolidating and buying each other out.


For now I guess take advantage of it if you can until it changes.

The payback more than off sets the rally. Good PR goes a long way. Bob love his work to much. Later RJD
