Paul Evert's RV Country. Their company also brought a large number of MHs, 5th wheels, and trailers to the Escapade for folks to examine (and hopefully purchase).
Thursday evening concluded with a fireworks display put on by the city of Gillette at the Camplex facility for the citizens of Gillette (and the Escapees since we had "ring side seats" in our rally campground at the Camplex). Unlike the FMCA Rally held a few weeks ago, we had not had a drop of rain all week. That is, until it was time for the fireworks display. They were due to begin between 9:30-10:00 PM, but the rain and winds started just before that time. Apparently, the Gillette fireworks had to be cancelled in 2012 due to the dry conditions, so this year's show was to be even bigger than normal. This year the fireworks went off as scheduled. After watching for a few minutes, we "wimped out" and went back inside the MH due to the rain. The show was very good and lasted almost 30 minutes.
A bit of review for the week: We attended several seminars each day throughout the Escapade. Subjects ran the gamut from "RVing to Alaska" to "Buying LED Lighting" to "Realities of the Fulltime Lifestyle". We enjoyed all of them and learned many new things.

If it sounds like we had a good time, you'd be correct! We learned new things, met new friends, caught up with some friends we'd met in the past, bought a few items which we just had to have from the vendors and had a really "fun" time.
If you ever get a chance to attend an Escapees Escapade I'd highly recommend it. You'll be warmly received and welcomed even if you've never attended one before. We are already planning on attending the 54th Escapade which will be held in Goshen, IN May 12-17, 2014.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
