As Bob said I doubt you will have any problem finding parks to stay in while in route.

I get up to the Goshen area 3 or 4 times a year. Was there the two days prior and the first day of the rally this year.

I was staying at Shipshewana South RV park and had reservations. That is 20 mile N/E of Goshen. Looked to me like there were several empty sites also. There are two others parked in Shipshewana and they were not near as full.

Reserve well in advance for best RV parks enroute.
It is SUMMER, not just a Rally, people are traveling.
Money is the ez part:
Rally for 2: about $500 PLUS
Travel expenses for fuel, food, overnights
Back up credit card for emergency ( might lose one)
Plan any tours and costs associated. Info found on previous years' costs are found on this forum under FROG Rally.
FLEA MARKET IS HUGE. Vendors, etc.
WE, personally, only go on plant tours. We have been to Amish country many times and return to our favorites. We have and love Amish crafted furniture.
A trip through rolling beautiful countryside has several turn ins to big barns where craftsmen are bz...
Most importantly, plan for emergencies. We had truck/RV troubles the day we left for the Rally and major problems enroute home:$3,000 worth!!
BE PREPARED. Just say'n!!

I agree with everyone that the Sweet Corn was the Best I have ever had anywhere. We will be there with the rest of the folks if I can get registered again. We could go any time . Thanks Bob for all you do to make it happen.

You got that from an official I assume! I do understand the concept of the mixing but, think that if you time your arrival with a crew you would be parked locally. That was my take on the info given.

Perhaps the Tiki hut could run a shuttle. I am preparing for my first attendance next year. There are forum members that I want to meet and heard that you could find them at the sign-in station. If that is not so, I will just bounce around until I see palm trees.

Might this be considered a scavenger hunt?

No groupies

Well; been both ways. Can't say either was any different than the other. Met nice folk both times.
Personally, I would never want to be on the wrong side of track ever again . Still have mud in my shoes.
I am trying to rent an annual spot and even willing to work the Fair to get in!! I can be the security guard. I can be as good as Barney, maybe!!
If that doesn't work, I will pull them horses with my truck around the track...heck; it's only a year away!!
My goal is to win the lottery and buy the fairgrounds. Lease it back to The county. ( for an unreasonable fee of course).
FROG BOB AND CREW tried to do a Great job this year but it seems weather and big eaters took away from the event.
All in all; it was fun and we look forward to attending in 2018. Next year we need to scratch another bucket list item for our 50th anniversary; Banff and Lake Louise. No RV. 😍.
Thank you FROG BOB AND MRS. FROG. 😄

If your source is not F.R.O.G Bob, or Captain Mike, I would take any other source with a LARGE grain of salt.

Frog 2017

It was from Bob Frog.
Now this year the food was horrible. Cant be very good when you try to feed 1600 people. Bob and his wife did a great job in many areas but they cant be everywhere at once. All I am saying is that how can FR Techs find all the different units. Doesn't it make more sense to have each factory model in one place.. Easier to find, to service, and makes their job easier and supervisors can hold them accountable instead of trying to find them in a fair ground.'
I am not faulting anyone or putting blame but we must have some common sense. I have written to Pete Leigl and told him what a great job his crew did at the rally and how much I appreciated his commitment to service and personally told the same to Bob and his wife. So lets don't make it harder on people to do their job successfully and happily. If it is not broke why fix it
