Depends on the provider. My Verizon works well on the hill but not so well down by the pool. I think there is WiFi near the pool also.

They will guide you through the last few turns no matter which direction you come from.

Be careful how you mount them so that they don't suffer galvanic corrosion!

Or, as Juliet asked, "What will the local kids do when they see a sign that says BASH?"

If it rains again and I loose yet another day of work, I will do just that. Rivets would look very cool. The material is left overs from belly pans, but new ones that were fabricated. The old ones are generally not worth reusing for anything but beer money, they go right into the recycling bin. I have a shell about ready to put back on it's frame and there are just a few minor details to do before it happens. The timing of the rain has not been good for me. I am trying to be very productive these days, so I did get the direction signs made and created this...

A scavenger hunt for the kids. A challenging one I might add. They might have to interact with a few adults to find all the items.

She did ask if "bash" means the same thing in the US as it does in her native England.

She then explained that they don't bash mailboxes in England like they do in the US because in England they're attached to the house. An educational evening here.

Anyway, we probably won't see the signs because we're trying the "Airstreams parked at the liquor store or gas station" navigational approach.

Let me know if you're interested.

Well I made it to Havre, MT last night. Today I made it to Minot, ND. Right now we are in the path of a thunder storm...... with a tornado warning/watch whichever is lesser. I can never remember. The truck is still hitched to the trailer. When I heard of the tornado possibility. I put down the stabilization jacks and raised the front jack.

Now I just wait until 3 AM.... Ugh.

two reminders:

Please do not forget the food drive. Bring some stuff from your pantry at home. There also is a great grocery store about 10 minutes drive away where you can buy some canned food if you do forget.

second reminder.... 6 more days!!!

Happy Hour Treats!!!!!!

Can we try one more time to get people interested in a Happy Hour Treat sign-up? With 80 something rigs, and four nights of partying, if we each take two nights to bring treats, that gives us two nights to do nothing but kick back and enjoy our beverages!!!!! PLEASE??!! We did this at the two rallies that I have been to this spring, and it worked really well; people brought much more interesting appetizers.

Since I am new to this particular party group, I don't know if those who are making the "bring something every night" suggestion are the "food preparers", or just the "food enjoyers"...........................(Ha, Ha....hope I don't offend anyone.)

I will volunteer to coordinate this.....

I agree!

Making Happy Hour assignments seems to have become the norm for rallies (or bashes) these days, and I think it's a great idea. It's worked really well at the three rallies I've been to this year, and everyone seems to like it - I haven't heard a single complaint. It makes things easier for everyone.
