Arizona: Xscapers Annual Bash, Day 3

After the block party last night, Bob became ill. We suspect food poisoning, but no one else became sick, so it could have been a short bug. Today, he stayed inside and rested a lot – he still felt weak. I drove to the grocery store and picked up some Gatorade G2 for electrolytes.

Since we spent a lot of time indoors in the morning, I checked out some afternoon and evening activites.

The RVers live taping

The RVers is a new broadcast television series produced by the award-winning producers of “The Aviators“, the world’s most popular aviation TV series. As part of today’s events, the show creator, producer, and host, Anthony Nalli, did a live taping for a future episode of the show. He interviewed Travis and Melanie Carr, Xscapers founders, on stage, while attendees served as a live studio audience.

Instead of model releases from everyone, there was a public filming notice.

It was fun being a part of the audience – I’ll let you know if I appear in an episode!

Nighttime at the Bash

After the taping was over, I headed back to the RV and relaxed for a bit before checking out the evening festivities.

There were food trucks on site and a margarita “throwdown” contest.

I taste tested a few margarita samples, but I was careful to drink lots of water between samples. Then I checked out the ice cream food truck, and had an amazing mint chip/chocolate double scoop. It was delicious!

Tomorrow, we hope to do a bit more, assuming Bob is 100% well. There are some fun activities planned.
