Default 59th Escapade National Rally?

I was just wondering if there was anyone else going to the Escapees RV Club national rally in March 17-22, 2019 at the Pima County Fairgrounds, Tuscon, AZ?

If so, would you like to try to get sites together and make a Wanderlodge area?

Just wanted to report on this one incase anyone decides to go to the Escapade next year.
This event is held by the Escapees and Xscapers RV clubs.

Really, really nice bunch. Over 900 coaches/fivers/trailers/vans here in Tucson but it is quiet and plenty of space for everyone. I'm in full hookups, but there also partial hookups and boondock sites. Live music the first two nights, maybe 35 vendors. It is kinda funny when you can spend the afternoon with the CEO of WiFi Ranger, then the CEO of Battle Born Batteries, and walk over and get the owner of Henderson's Line Up/Supersteer to crawl around under your coach.

Currently, there are three Wanderlodges (a FC, a SP, and my WB) here and two Schoolies. Seems that I get to give the Wanderlodge pitch at least once a day.

It was kinda windy (35-45 MPH winds) on the way into AZ from TX on I-10, but now it is nice and clear in the upper 70's for the day and mid-50's at night so no heat or air required. I'm sitting here now at 8:30PM with the windows open and it is a comfy 72' still in the coach.

The Pima County Fairgrounds is a huge area. It includes the fairground with perm buildings, it's own RV Park, a skeet range, a shooting range, a go kart track, an RC Airfield, a dirt bike track, a drag strip and has two restaurants on site (in addition to the food vendors). The AF Base is about 18 miles away and pretty much any store or restaurant you want is within 20 miles. One kinda cool one is Hotrods Old Vail which is collocated with their speed shop.

We're heading up to Mesa to visit the kids/grandkids after this and will likely make a day stop at Straight Line Suspension for an alignment while I'm here.

Talent show was last night. Discovered that the CEO of Battle Born batteries can really play a guitar.

If folks are interested here is the blurb for the next Escapade.
