We go to the Escapade
Today we traveled a scenic and easy 140 miles to Gillette, WY for the 51st edition of the Escapees RV Club annual rally called Escapade. Our own Carey Keith, manager of Hart Ranch, was there promoting the park in the vendor area, along with about 50 other vendors of everything RV. From sewer hoses to RV Insurance, it was all there. I recently acquired a Blue OX Aventa II Tow Bar from a friend, but I needed the connector pins and an adapter for our Roadmaster base plate. Wouldn't you know but both companies were there and had exactly what I needed. This saved me from mail order and shipping chargers. After a good look around, we moved on to "The Row". This is an area where Escapees Chapters, Parks, and special interest groups or BOF (Birds of a feather) groups have tables with information about their organization. Lots of good information to be had here. Then it was on to a Geeks on Tour seminar on blogging. As a result, I learned about putting in a feature where you, our readers can follow us by e-mail. I always learn from those guys! After that it was time to return to Rapid City and walk Charley who had been patiently waiting for several hours. Such a good boy! We'll talk more about Escapade on our next Podcast edition of Living the RV Dream.
