The best part of a FROG rally is the people you meet!

Yes!!!!! Were stoked and were booked. Awesome YouTube presentation. 👍

Were looking forward to touring the countryside and the Coverd Bridges. Weve traveled through Vermont, and thought they had a lot at 95, but Ohio beats them easily with 133.

Best of all....were counting the days until we take in the sights along our 6 hour international journey to party with our 🐸 friends....some of the best people weve ever met. Heres hoping the colours are alive for autumn.

FROG ON!

Not counting the FROG INTERNATIONAL RALLY, most of the other FROG rallies are usually just 4 days long. No matter what type of rig you have, most people should be able to survive on water and electric only. Tank capacity is quite doable with just a little discipline.

So can we count you in?

We attended the last one, and it was one of the best rally's ever. Lots of good food provided, entertainment was great, the covered bridges are some of the best in the country! And this year, Gary has added a wine tour for those who enjoy fine wines. Hope to see a full house.... Forest River folks are the finest people we know!

Seen all the covered bridges in Ashtabula I have 3 within 3 miles and wine tours some of the best wines not only in Ohio but all of USA are in Ashtabula county. Ferrante's winery is very good I have known them for years as well as Grand River

Could use the shade

According to Google (so you know it has to be true) there are over 125 covered bridges in Ohio, and 17 in Ashtabula county alone.

It has been so hot and dry back home here in Southern Ontario I walked across my front lawn to pick up the mail, and got a grass sliver. 😬

Weve had no appreciable rain in over a month, so much so that a tree says thank-you every time a dog walks past. (Bada boom) (rimshot)

Ive love to be able to camp inside one of these covered bridges just to get some shade.

Really looking forward to the 🐸 Rally here in a couple of months.

I would like to see that list because their is 18 in the county and if you count the covered bridge pizza shop who bought one covered bridge to keep it from being tore down and he used it to make his pizza shop in Kingsville and Ashtabula county tourist built one covered bridge at the Geneva and I 90 as advertisement of the county so that makes 20

A copy of the 2018 Ashtabula County Visitors Guide is now on the way to all FROGs registered for the campout. The Guide contains a map showing all of the bridges. Will allow everyone to better plan their time for places to visit during the event. Lots to see and do in Ashtabula County!
