For those who replied byPM re the ukulele workshop I apologize that the inbox was full. I did receive a notification and thus far there are 4 who would like the workshop. It is a go as far as I am concerned. I will try to set a time that would be convenient for everyone. Please let me know what tours you are on. I can always do the workshop in the evenings if necessary.

It would be better to tow the dolly in with your car after your motorhome is parked and you have the lay of the land. All areas have unique challenges and you won't know the situation until you are in your spot. Most (but not all) sites will allow you to keep a small dolly at your campsite.

There will also be an unsecured area where you can leave your dolly (or larger dolly/trailers) if you so choose; just make sure to bring what you need to secure it (chain through wheels and/or hitch lock).

I hope that helps.

Thanks for answering that Herk! I was hoping someone saw the post.

The "no shipping" option is what you want. It keeps the system from trying to calculate shipping charges. You'll receive a final confirmation by e-mail once I review the order and apply the credit card charge.

Best situation would obviously be to drop the toad off at a spot other than the fairgrounds and have someone drive it in. If you have a dolly (now unloaded) there will be an area just off of the main driveway when you come in Gate 2 to park dollies, trailers, etc. I WOULD NOT COUNT ON HAVING ENOUGH ROOM TO PLACE YOUR DOLLY AT YOUR SITE. If you are in one of the "hobo" parking areas - the Meadow, the Grove or Northeast - you will not have enough room for the dolly at your site.

Since the activities are most or all day, after dinner might be nice.

Thanks Mike, I failed to account for the huge increase in Northeast Hobo slots this year. Parking was a bit tight up there.

Thanks folks... I'll move the dolly to behind the C-Max and figure it all out when we get to our site. I knew it would come in handy having the TOAD setup to tow.

I didn't catch the "no shipping" option. Did get an email though saying my order was "shipped" and get ready to rally. This is our going to be our first one, excited to be going! Haven't heard of many hybrid owners signing up though.

Looking ahead to the future, so our next "car" must be 4 down towable, 4WD, and have a towing option of its own.

We are looking at Jeep Cherokees for that reason; the Wranglers have too much ground clearance for the DW to negotiate even with step bars.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 4X4 is now offered as a diesel and is towable 4 down. (My husband looked at the website yesterday, but little does he know, I am NEVER giving up my Honda CR-V!! I don't care what kind of fuel it runs on!!!)

I think Bob said on Friday, there were only 24 sites left. Surprised it lasted that long after Tuesday's big surge.

The last site was picked up a little before 6:00 Saturday afternoon. We've changed the store portion of the registration process to say that the sites are taken and that we're creating a standby list for cancellations of sites and tours. We'll make a similar change tomorrow on the FROG website (I need our web team to do that) to say that completing the first stage of registration will put you on the standby list for a site.

Less than 4 1/2 days. Unbelievable!

Wow that is awesome to be sold out in 4 1/2 days. Good luck with the rally and I know it will go well. Last year was great for us and to us it seemed to flow like clock work Later RJD
