Well its actually Tuesday and I realized that I did not update the blog yesterday. It was a busy busy day once we got going. We did have a lazy morning, but I am getting over being sick and all the hours we put in at Boot Camp. Bonnie went over and toured the market place and talked to some of the vendors. After lunch I went over with her and we looked at some of the things she is interested in doing or getting. Then at 3pm we had the first drawings and the opening session of the 54th Escapade. We met some of the staff that put this all together and also two 500 cash prizes were given away. We caught up with John and Kathy and Bill and Kris so we all sat together.

Johnny Counterfeit and band were the evening entertainment. He is a singer, song writer, impressionist etc. He was very funny and entertaining. Back to the coach exhausted we pretty much went straight to bed.
We had some rain overnight but its not too wet where we are.
Tired again tonight but I need to write a little before I retire. We were up at 7 this morning way to early for me. We each had a seminar we wanted to attend. I wend to one on extending campground WiFi and Bonnie attended interior refurbishing. Then Bonnie went to one on cleaning your RV without chemicals and I went to Technology for RVers. Then we both attended Nick Russell's talk on Highway History and Backroad Mystery, very informative. It was so good we attended his talk on the Frugal RVer along with John and Kathy Huggins.

Bonnie has been reading a while so now I am going to head in to bed also. Another great day at the Escapade.
Well the sun has set, although we really did not see the sun all day. It has rained all day long steady mostly and down right hard at times. Its after 10 now and when the heat pump is not running the rain is loud on the roof.
Bonnie started a class at 8:30 this morning and pretty much did that all day. We did meet for lunch and talked to the Red Cross Doves briefly. I slept in until 8:30 and then took my time waking up. I got some batteries out to trade with John Huggins for a TPMS repeater that he was not using. I also checked the Hydro Hot and added some coolant to that, I am hoping its just air coming out from the replacement last year. I will keep an eye on it.
After lunch I attended a seminars and also checked with the post office to see if my package from MCD shades had come in. Not yet.

I looked at the MCD box and decided to see if I could put up a shade.

We are having a good time this week and have already learned so much. There is still a lot to do and we have realized we can not do it all in one week. So we are trying to rest a little more and attend a few less seminars. We have really had a lot of rain and certain areas are much wetter than others. We are hoping everyone can get out safely on Saturday or when they need to. Time to post this and get some of that rest.
Thanks For Checking In!
