Well, I actually saw Three bottles of wine..two Thunderbird and one Boonesfarm, I believe. However, after a few snorts of Iggy's Frog Juice, The wine could have been a 1957 Chateau LaFitte and I wouldn't have known. Beer seemed to be the Taste of Choice for the evening.

For a first timer not knowing what to expect, I was disappointed , the Sunday nite meal ruined the whole week for us, and from what I heard it never got any better, we didn't go on the Tuesday brown bag tour because of all the heavy rain. lost that $150 bucks. Service was great by all of the Lippert guys. Yes we will go back and give it another try. I never ran out of beer but going to WalMart for ice was a pain

Our Frog Juice was a great hit all over the Rally. Next time may have to bring 5 gal or more. We went through a little over 3 gals this year.

This being our first ralley we did not know what to expect.We were parked out in the green hay field so were somewhat isolated from some of the activities.The food thing on sun night should have been considered nothing more than a learning experience,more people than ever before +moveing the serving lines to a different location + The first night trying to make everything work like it should = a result that some people would consider not acceptible.Nancy and I roll rather easy with things like this and even though I got the LAST slice of ham and some salad,it was no big deal,if it is/was, just pick up your cell and order in a pizza hut.See? Problem solved!I couldnt find any wine to taste though,so that WAS a bummer.The trips (at least ours) went fine and were professionately done.The service people bent over backwards to do way beond what was originally ask of them,they get 2 gold stars as my wife would say.The parking,taxi,and all the other volentiers did a truly fine job as well.The entertainment was great as well,something for everybody!There again because it was our first ralley I would give it an overall rateing of 9,and thats pretty damn good for an event of this size.Next year we plan to return and do some volenteering of our own now that we know what goes on!

Oh yeah,the weather I give a 2 !!, but we couldnt control that!

Wish FR would do something like Goshen, for those of us on the West Coast.
Like at their Oregon or California factories.
2000 miles one way is a bit much.

This was our first FROG Rally also. We were extremely pleased with the event overall. We met many good people who we hope to stay in touch with or at least see them at next years rally. The food was so-so but still eatable, I have had worse. I can not say enough about the service people. They were all fantastic! Since we have been back home I have been telling my regular camping group what they are missing by not owning a Forest River product. Overall I would rate it a 9.

That was our problem too, no ice, our kids bought us an ice maker for the camper and that thing starts dropping ice in about 15 minutes we hav'nt had to buy ice for awhile now
