    Larry & Lou,
    My apologies for never responding back to you last March. I just lost track of things and it fell off my plate - I'll blame advancing maturity. Anyway, we did head out west and had a marvelous time in South Dakota/Wyoming/Nebraska and points along the way. We did overnight at Portage and, as you guessed, it was empty. $20 (payment kiosk right at the site) that included 30a electric and a dump station right there. Worked out great - easy on/easy off the turnpike (got some good sleep to ease my nerves for the long drive through Chicago the next day).
    We do appreciate your offer though and if we ever get your way again, we'll keep you in mind.

    Hello Larry & Lou,
    I happened to see a post by you and noted you live near Cleveland. We are new AS owners from central Pennsylvania (23FB Intern picked up last November) and planning our first major excursion to western parks in August. I've been planning the itinerary and had planned on over-nighting our first night out (and possibly on the way back) at the Portage Service Plaza off Rt 80. This type of traveling is pretty new to me - never pulled a trailer on a long trip before. I know we could just boondock at a truck stop if no actual RV sites are available, but I like to plan ahead. Do you have experience with the Portage Plaza as far as how heavily the RV sites are used? are we likely to find a spot arriving 6-7pm? any other suggests for an easy-off-on overnight spot in the general area? I actually lived in Strongsville and near Medina years ago, but it's been a long time.

    Hi Lou and Larry, just working my way learning how to use the Forums, etc. Mostly resting up from the long day of cleaning yesterday! The frig came out great and is ready for storage (brief I hope!). Please send us the info about your group again. I can't seem to find my notes. Thanks!

    We're looking forward to it - I put the mattress heater on the bed! It's going to be chilly at night - no pun intended - I'll be getting ready for the rest of the week! I'll be bringing the antifreeze to winterize. Hoping for some instruction/help.

    When we bring our chili to the judging - do we bring just one bowl? I'm bringing my crockpot to heat it for dinner.

    Lou, My first time, too. I'm assuming this is your personal (Rivet Master) member check-in area. I'm running off an iPhone and find this forum way too packed with stuff for this little screen. What do I do next?
