Roll Call.........Who is going to Eggtoberfest this weekend????

Who all is going??

List if you're going to be at the main event on Saturday and/or the meet & greet Friday night.

Also, maybe we can get a group text going and meet somewhere on Saturday??  I caught up with about a dozen of you last year, but it wasn't easy.  Let's try to figure out a time and place this year.  Anybody cooking?  Could we come hang out at your tent at some point in the afternoon when the rush is over?  Like 1:00 or 2:00 pm?

    The wife and I will be there Saturday, we missed last year due to me having major surgery.  I am 100% better this year and ready to go.

    A buddy of mine bailed, so I have two extra tickets......let me know ASAP.

    Also, anybody that wants a RW hat or apron, l'll squeeze whatever I can in my backpack.  We're nearly out of t-shirts......have a few toddler shirts (4T & 5T), one small, one medium, one 2 XL, and two 4XLs.

    I don't want to hi-jack and derail your post, but you (and anyone reading) should make it out to DizzyFest in VA this upcoming spring.  It'll be a couple weeks after Butt Blast

    Not sure.....if we get a RV by then, yes.  If not, it'll probably just be a day trip again.

    Jonathan, that’s awesome if y’all can go straight for a class A. Pulling an expedition behind it would almost require a diesel pusher,
    theres only one I’d recommend in that range,
    the Tiffin. Can’t help but mention though, if you can trade the expedition for a 3/4 truck, a fifth wheeler would really suit y’all better as there’s more options for the kiddos, as most class As are geared towards empty nesters. Also there’s plenty of travel trailers that the expedition will tow that have bunkhouses for the kids too. (This is where we fall). Again, let me know if your serious, we can chat offline.

    Has to be a class A.  No way to put 4 kids and 2 adults comfortably in a 3/4 pickup.  Would have to get one of those custom 3 row ones and they're $100k easy.  I looked at bumper tows and to get one big enough for us, it's going to be 6000# before loading it up.  I don't care what my truck is rated for, that's too much.  Even the DeLorean on my dad's aluminum 16ft car hauling trailer feel like overloading it.  Bring back the Excursion!!!!!!!

    Theres a Tiffin dealer across the highway from our warehouse.  Been over there a few times.  More than enough space to park at the warehouse.  Definitely a diesel.  We have the GM 6.0 V8 gas engine in our box truck and that thing gets about 7.5 mpg out on the highway.  It only gets driven about 7k a year and is rarely at max gross, but I still wish I would have spent the extra $$ on the diesel for the torque.  You have to get a running start at steep hills.

    I saw a class A online that had a split rear level.  Queen bed in the basement and a loft above.  Kind of cool.  I can't remember the brand but there aren't any dealers in missouri.

    Go get it! Rving is about being out there. We’re on our 4th rv/camper in 15 years. You likely won’t get it right the first time but you’ll get a better idea what is. Either way get your a$$ to butt blast....
