I'm hip! I saw this setup going up I-55 today and thought, ok... maybe he has a big family. It was only after I saw about 5 more, it dawned upon me that they were headed up to the dome for the RV show.

We attended the RV show in Nashville last weekend, liked the Blue Ridge, really liked the Cardinal. Factory rep from Cardinal gave a lot of information without trying to sell us a unit. Wow, these units are heavy...but a factory installed propane generator sure sounds good. Saw a class C on the new Ford van frame, not really sure about that one, since we are 5th wheel folks. Most of the single axle trailers were priced at the point where you really want to consider a used unit at twice the size and still less $$$.

Headed to the RV show in St. Louis! I am sad they won't have any XLR's but hope to get some great ideas for campgrounds this year.

Bob & Michelle, I spoke with Ron Benhart (Turbs) over the weekend, and he's waiting to hear pricing information from the campground and a couple of other details. As soon as we have those, we'll post the rest of the details on the website and announce the opening of registration.

Thank you Bob.

I do have a question about the way things are posted on the FROG Event pages. My perception last year was that "Member Hosted" were events that you or a representative of yours was not going to be attending. The "Member Hosted" page is not being used this year.

Does this mean anything? TURBS and his crew did run a bang-up show last year.

Turbs (Ron Benhart) and his crew did indeed do a great job, and will be hosting the FROG-toberfest again this year. I just spoke with him on Saturday as I mentioned above.

The distinction between "Member Hosted" and "FROG Hosted" events was confusing to some people, so I've posted everything under "FROG Hosted" for now since, even if we don't host the events, we subsidize most of them with meals, prizes, or in some other manner. "Member Hosted" was intended not so much to indicate that Cindy and I weren't going to be there, but that the event was being organized and hosted by someone else, usually with some input or assistance from us. We attended some of those, but weren't able to get to all of them because of timing and / or location.

I'm going to have our web gurus delete the "Member Hosted" category and change "FROG Hosted" to something like, "Rallies, Trips and Events."

Hmm. Next year, carry around a big balloon on about 20 feet of string. That way we can find you guys easily.
