Well I don't have an address yet, so I'm not sure how close it is. I did look and found a Super 8 that's got rooms for $51+ tax. Super 8s tend to be scummy but its only for a night.

where we meet and where the parade is are two different things entirely...

we basically hop onto the float and get driven to the judging area and then the staging area....leaving your vehicles at the Marina...which is the point of origin...

as I recall..
the parade basically winds through downtown Racine..
at one point...you can see the Lake...

Hoping to make this, waiting to see my wife's schedule for that day so hopefully she will get it within the next few days. If I can make it I would love to take you up on that RFT offer Phyllis (if you get it that is), I already have the boots, blaster, and belt

I was set to bid on it...
had my alarm clock set to make sure I remembered...

and...

guess who had a power outage that lasted from 6:00 PM to almost midnight...

that's right...

me!!

I have no "mobile device" so I was unable to use my computer to bid...

I was soooooooooo mad!!!

that in addition to the fact that the basement started to flood so I had to go out and man the generator..

Mad

I really wish I could've come along for this, but my wife decided to sign us both up for a 5K on the 4th. It is her first one, and she needs me there for moral support.

Hopefully I can head up to do some WI troops in the not-too-distant future. A little change of scenery can be a good thing! Smile

I know that Steve S posted that he is going...
and wearing RFT...

so...

don't know if Ashley is coming too...but maybe the 4 of us can ride together....
the good thing about RFT is no big totes and we will fit...

I don't want to take the Jeep as it has no air conditioning...
and gets horsesh*t gas mileage...

Wink

Yeah, its my understanding that both Steve and Ash are going. I talked to them the other day. I believe the plan as it stands right now is to go up the night before and crash at a hotel so we can be up early and be at the warehouse at the appropriate time.

So feel free to talk to Steve and see what he says.
