See, it pays to go to the evening entertainment and door prizes ! I don’t drink whiskey so we might save it for Quartzsite - you all coming? << this is Wendy speaking. Me I think JD & Coke make a graet drink I guess we'll see.

Ah, but we stayed every other night for the entertainment. So we earned this one :) Besides, my back was hurting from sewing all day so maybe there won't be any JD left for Quartzsite - should be better than asprin :)

Oh, yeah, I also won a $25 gift certificate from Big O Tires (valve stems for the VW) and 3 nights at the SKP park in Coarsegold. Life is good.

After getting you a free month of camping at Harvest Hosts, my dear Wendy, I thought that you might be willing to at least share a little of your good fortune with a friend who likes Jack-------especially since I like it with "The Real Thing"!!!!!

I would be one of those ! Too bad Bernie already used his WalMart gift certificate or I would have offered to trade :)

Congratulations on joining.  May you save many dollars in camping fees and donate them all to the various clubs where you stay.  I find they are next to Walmart in total cost.  Fees, meals, a few drinks and a donation to their favorite charity really adds up!   :)

Wendy,

Should we bring ice and cups or would you like to bring your bottle over to our site?

We can bring the bottle over if we can walk that far :)

Good times! The picture taking part of Happy Hour should be an event in its own right!

We'll be there!

Great! Throw a couple of chairs in the car. It should be nice enough to sit outside. If not, we'll squeeze inside. And where are Kim, Christi, and Lou Schneider?

After Wendy graciously shared her Escapade spoils (Jack Daniels) at the Happy Hour at Randy's coach, a group went on to Chinese buffet dinner, including Lou, Bernie and Marlene, Randy and Debby, Christi and I, and confessed Forum lurkers and fellow Escapees, Jody and Bill.

Obviously a good time was had by all, again, with Christi, Debby, and Randy having as much fun as anyone.

If you ever end up in Gillette, this Chinese buffet near McDonalds is possibly the widest ranging buffet we have enjoyed anywhere.

A frally with frood...good times...

Nice picture, Kim. A good time was, indeed, had by all. Now we can begin to look forward to Catalina State Park in December. And Sheila, with all the talking (and that's a nice way to put it) that we did about you, you should feel as though you really were here.

And Jody, if you're lurking and read this: Make a post and get with the program. And by all means come to Catalina and Quartzsite.

Today, me and Mike drove a Wildlife & History Tour Loop. Saw lots of birds plus Pronghorn Antelope and 487 cows. Fortunately, the weather is no longer brutally hot, although it is a bit cool.
 
Any plans for a Grand Finale to the Frally ? Happy Hour? Dinner out?

Christi and I overslept (for us), but still bolted out this afternoon for Mt Rushmore and Deadwood. Christi hung out the window for the Mt Rushmore pictures because she REALLY wanted to visit Deadwood.

Beautiful weather for a drive in the Black Hills.

Happy Hour at the minimum, don't know who is left, and we don't leave until Tues. Might have to draw the line at Chinese, again, but it sure was good!

Maybe a couple more happy hours???
