Thanks Linda! Hmm, this weekend will be great weather, 80's (26/27c), and dry. That is exactly the kind of weather I am in hopes of for the egg rally!

I will probably pull in first thing Friday morning, if not the night before. It still takes me just under an hour to get there. We'll see how it goes.

Looking forward to seeing all of you!

Frank

There's a big PriceChopper in Mechanicville, just a few miles up the road Linda. I googled that, just so you know, as I am not familiar with the area.

Some local events that weekend:

Craft beer & cider Friday: Taste NY: Craft Beer & Cider - Fri, Aug 15, 2014 - Saratoga Springs, NY Events

Hootenany Saturday night: HOOTenanny! presented by Caffe Lena & Friends of the IBA - Sat, Aug 16, 2014 - Saratoga Springs, NY Events

Taste NY sunday: HOOTenanny! presented by Caffe Lena & Friends of the IBA - Sat, Aug 16, 2014 - Saratoga Springs, NY Events

Those are just a few things I picked out of the events calendar for Saratoga County. Also, the horse races are on, so Saratoga is hopping in August!

There's way too much to list here, so here's the events link for the entire month of August: Saratoga Events Calendar For August 2014 - Events In Saratoga Springs, New York & Surrounding Communities

There is also all sorts of stuff going on in Albany County. Here's a link for the 15th of August: Events

Albany does it day-by-day, so here's the 16th: Events

And the 17th: Events

About all we have planned to do as a group is a pot luck Saturday night. Again, John & Nancy have a great canoe/kayak launch on their property, so feel free to bring stuff that floats!

It's great that my brother John keeps up with this thread! He tells me he has a printout map that will get you to Walmart, Price Chopper and Bubbles for ice cream.

There's also a nice Hannaford in Lansingburgh, a couple of miles in the other direction. There's also a Stewarts just down the road. They have all the basics like milk, bread, soda, etc.

And let me also put in a plug for the Troy Farmer's Market. It's the largest Farmer's Market in the area with live music and great vendors. Saturday from 9-2. Only about 15 minutes from your brother's place.

Starting to look

Hi All,
I am thinking about purchasing a small fiberglass camper such as the Egg, Scamp, Parkliner, but they don't come to big shows from what I can tell. I saw a suggestion to go to a rally and hopefully some friendly folks would not mind showing me their setups. So I would like to come to your event, and wonder if I would be welcome. I see GPS coordinates for the event, if that's precise I should be able to find my way. I'm about 3 hours south of you, and I would make this a day trip.
Thank you,
Mary

Love your comment. Potluck is just that. What you see is what you can pick from. I have never went hungry at a potluck and I am a fussy eater. Love the peanut butter sandwich idea. That would be a hoot to bring to a potluck dinner, a tray full of peanut butter sandwich's LOL.

Rick; I was just harassing Frank a little on the potluck. We do weekly potlucks at the campground we winter at in GA. Usually 50 plus people attending, and quite a variety of food from simple to fancy, same with deserts. We have to keep it fairly simple because of our limited cooking options with our small camper. We have done crock pot stuff, meatballs or hotdogs and beans, other times bought bags of cole slaw at the grocery store, and another time went to the local cafe that has fantastic pastry that is half price after 4 PM, bought several, and cut them up in pieces and took that. No complaints that we heard. There's a rule, don't complain about any food at a potluck, the person sitting next to you might have made it LOL. Unfortunately we can't make it to Frank's event because of my 50th high school reunion, but he's a great guy so I know it'll be good.

You would be more than welcome Mary! There will be a number of different kinds of eggs to look at. We did the same exact thing when we were thinking about buying an egg, & look what happened!

Any questions, just ask, or PM me.

Welcome to FGRV Mary, I'm sure you are welcome to the rally, we always love to show off our units to newbies so to speak and it is the best way for you to see what kind you want. Am I right Frank?
