Toby glad to have you at the rally. Looking forward to meeting you. We are going to have two contests. The best dressed Furry Baby and the best decorated FROG unit. People really go all out with their decorations.

I don't call moving in that sub-culture RVing, but more like getting kids to their competition, hooking up beside some horse barn, etc. We needed a people mover, so here we are! Want to explore the scenic possibilities. Nervous about what I don't know!!! This forum has filled the gap where the owner's manual stops! Time will tell whether we made a smart or foolish purchase!

We would really like to try to make this rally! I'm having surgery on my bunions, one at a time, starting August 20th (second foot 6 weeks or so later). If I'm between surgeries how late can we try to register for this rally????? I won't know until sometime in Sept....
