Escapade Begins, May 12, 2014, Monday

Last night there were thunderstorms in the area and some threatening weather to the west of the Goshen area.  Here we had heavy rain for a couple hours but no heavy winds.  We awoke to cloudy skies which remained all day but no rain as of 9pm.  It was in the mid 80’s today.  Showers and thunderstorms are being predicted for tonight.

After breakfast in the motorhome, we walked to the vendor area which opened at 9am this morning.  Seminars will not start until tomorrow.  Appointments were made with Blue Ox to have our tow bar serviced and with RV Weigh to have the motorhome weighed.  Blue Ox serviceman came over to the motorhome later in the day to do the service on the tow bar.  RV Weigh will be done Saturday morning as we are leaving the Fairgrounds.

The Escapade officially opened at 3pm today with opening ceremonies.  At the conclusion of the ceremonies ice cream bars were distributed.  Then at 7pm we again gathered for announcements and door prizes followed by entertainment.  “Johnny Counterfit”, an impersonator of various singing artists, entertained for 90 minutes and was well received.  He had the audience laughing and singing throughout the show.
