TO: DCC Church

I have a 27-foot motorhome.

I’ll be driving to the church camping event in two weeks. (September 28 & 29)

Botna Bend Park

42926 Mahogany Rd, Hancock, IA

(40 miles east of Omaha)


I can carry 12 people comfortably. (Total with the driver.)

If anyone ‘may’ wishes to ride with me just email me your tentativeness.

If you wish to go but things do not work out that is fine.

Just tell me what your chances of going are.

100% = It will take a rapture to stop me from going.

75% = Most likely.

50% = I hope to go.

25% = I want to go but will not likely be able to go, just want to be on the list just in-case it works out.

(I completely understand how some people will go if their friends are going and so forth.)

The link below will compile a list of people that have an interest in going, with their percentages.

Email me, give me your name, phone number, and your best estimate of being able to go.


The RV will be available for sleeping, which is especially handy in the event of inclimate weather.

The RV sleeps 6 then the rollout canopy on the side can get 6 more under it easily.

I recommend bringing a sleeping pad if you sleep outside, plus a sleeping bag, pillow, and a light sheet in the event it is a warm night (sleeping bags are often too hot.

The bathroom will be operational during travel and at the campsite. Gas stove, refrigerator, all A/C works for travel and at a campsite with 120-volt electricity.

p.s. – I’ll cover all gas and entry fees, electrical hookup, etc., as a ministry offering.


I’ll likely try and stay close to Tyler’s schedule as far as the time to go home.

As when leaving we will try to work with the possible riders scheduled.

We will most likely meet at the church parking lot unless people have a better idea of a good place to leave the cars. (I see the church lot has several (many) security cameras now.)
