    Hi GeocamperAS. I have purchased your old 28' Argosy from Camping World in Wisconsin and am due to pick it up on Monday. It was fun to follow the history of some of the work that you did to the RV...great work! I love the inside and outside. The cabinetry looks like it is in great condition, not to mention the outside!

    Just checking to see if you have some words of wisdom....

    Will you be with for all or part of the rally?

    I can send this entire information to you in a word document, via email. Just let me know?

    Anyone not plan- ning to caravan, but just join the group in Prairie du Chien on October 10-12 MUST call the campground to reserve a space. Phone 608-326-2141 to make reservations. By September 8th, we will be releasing the hold on the 20 spaces and after that date, you may, or may not, be able camp with the group. Remember, this is the time of colored leaves (normally) and camping spaces will be in high demand. Driving directions to Hickory Haven RV Park will be sent to all who are on
    the caravan and a drivers manual will be distributed at the Saturday dinner at Ogo’s. Directions to Sports Unlimited will be in the October newsletter.

    Except for Saturday evenings in Keokuk and Prairie du Chien and the Saturday and Sunday breakfasts in Prairie du Chien, no meals have been planned. However, if the group desires, we can see about dining at either Breitbach’s or the casino on one of evenings in Dubuque. The schedule shown above is pretty well set, but may have to change if circumstances demand.

    How may I help?

    At the writing of this newsletter, we have several rigs signed up for the October “Caravan Along the Mississippi”. The deadline for joining the group is rapidly approaching. Those who have indicated they will join the caravan in Keokuk are Richard & Martha Jirus, Donella Watkinson, Lavonne Sandersfeld, Norm & Linda Beu, Ian & Carolyn Muir, John & Carol Heckman and Chuck & Doris Jean Cabalka. Paul & June Ryan and Tom & Shirley Herron plan to join the group at the Clinton stop. In all probability, Region 8 1st VP Gary Rush & wife, Linda, will join the group at the Dubuque stop. Gary will be installing the 2015 Iowa Unit officers on Saturday evening following dinner at a local restaurant. The following is the proposed schedule for the caravan;
    Saturday, Oct. 4
    Sunday, Oct. 5 Monday, Oct. 6
    Tuesday, Oct. 7
    Wednesday, Oct. 8
    Thursday, Oct. 9
    Friday, Oct. 10

    just curious about what you used as a replacement for a shower and sink in your argosy. I have similar issues to deal with in my '78 Minuet 22

    Tiger, you are my hero. I just purchased a 28 foot 1974 Argosy to renovate and I am somewhat at a loss as to where to even start. I just looked through the gallery of the renovation on your 28 and was profoundly impressed by your efforts. I was wondering how long it took you to complete the project. Very nice!
