Got my new TUG, it is a 2013 Ford Escape SE 2.0 turbo with tow package. Still going strong on my 13' Boler rebuild. Looks like the only original interior part will be the closet. The modified fiberglass bench weighed too much so replaced both rear benches in the back with pine. Weighs a lot less and goes with the pine I am building for the front kitchen. Lots of work but it will be done the way I want it.

Still lots of Basic camp sites left in St Malo the weekend of our Rally but all the Electrical sites are all booked. I prefer the Basic sites to Boondock myself.

Keep the bookings coming and let me know your site number, type of camper, and number of people coming.

Weather finally starting to warm up and the leaves are coming back so we may get a summer after all.

Of course we'll get a summer in MB just don't know when we'll get there. Trying to sell our house near Toronto, but no luck so far, when we do we move to Emerson, hoping that might even be by the middle of August so...if we do, hope to get up to St. Malo on the Sat. and meet some of the MB & other egg campers. Of course that will be a beautiful weekend with NO mosquitos...well on second thought there are bound to be mosquitos!

I may be in touch re your Escape 2.0 l. turbo, we are debating what to get, our daughter and son-in-law just got the V6 turbo in the F150 and like it, depends on what we decide to get for a trailer.

Hi Rick,
Once again, I won't be able to make it to the rally. Doing the Tour de Pines Bicycle Ride around/outside Itasca State Park near Park Rapids, MN that weekend. My friend and I hope to complete the 50-mile route this year. I got a new bike that weighs A LOT less than my old (early 90's) Schwinn Mirada, so I'll at least have a fighting chance at finishing.
Maybe I'll be able to make it next year. I hate to miss what looks like a fun rally.
Take care,

Hi Adrian. You will be welcome to come to our trailer tour on the Saturday to get ideas and maybe you will even have a trailer by then and will be able to come for the weekend.

Just picked my new Escape up on Saturday so still getting used to it but will not tow anything till I get at least 1600km on it. Looks real good so far tho. I did drive the F150 with the Ecoboost V6, was an awesome truck but the salesman who's demo it was said it is not that great on gas.

Sorry to hear that you cant make it this year Lil. Good luck on your bike tour. It is amazing how light they can make bikes now with the hi-tech metals now-a-days.

Hi again Rick

Yes, our son-in-law in not that impressed with the gas mileage but what a beautiful truck - we visited them in NC early May and we took the truck to the beach for an overnight - lots of room in the back for two of us and their big lab! and they got the nearly top of line with largest cab and leather - very nice.

Well, it looks like we're making our move to Emerson even though our ON house has not yet sold (not even an offer), the week of Aug. 12 so depending on how our settling in goes (and we may need a break anyway) will head up to St. Malo Sat. afternoon - what time would you be having the trailer tour?

Hi Adrian

Wow risky making a move without selling first. Good luck to you.

Trailer tour starts at 1pm from my campsite Section A Site 9. My 2013 Ford Escape will be there is you want to have a look at it at the same time.

Six weeks till I head out to St Malo for the Rally. Got lots left to do to my Boler. Got 22 confirmed trailers so far. But it seems there are always last minute bookers. There are NO electrical sites left for that weekend but lots of Boondocker sites left around the Rally area.

A list of activities will follow as I work them out.

We're looking forward to our first rally too. Taking the SurfSide to the Winnipeg Folk Fest next week (pics to come). Will be testing a few new toys that I've added.

Well, I spoke to a few of the members coming to this years Rally and found out there are at least 3 trailers undergoing major renos. Will be a very interesting Trailer Tour this year.

Shaping up to be a great summer after the weird winter and spring.
