I got my call back from Damion today. There are now six sites left for that weekend. All are in the 200s near the office. We reserved 207. Not the best but we're in. Yay! Can't wait to see everyone! We'll be in our aluminum tent, happy as can be. Fingers and eyeballs are reported to be on the menu again this year!

I asked Damion what the big draw for that weekend was, and he said it was the Airstream rally. Say What??

There must be alot more Airstreamers going to this rally than I thought, that park is huge!

I'm glad that we are finally getting calls back. I missed my call from them this morning So now I'm back to the waiting game. But at least I'm booked already.

All the spots are good. I just happened to know those numbers.
It is a nice campground despite the difficulty in getting a call back.
Keep trying!

We have a potluck on Saturday night so you can bring

Hope you can get a spot.
This is the first year we've had an issue with that. (?)

I've called a couple times with no answer but I'll try again.

Anyone have any updated info about Rivernook?

I call almost every week, no spots open except for 1 or 2 on the main entrance road across from office. Keep hoping for an opening or a drop out in our group... please let me know if you hear of one. WE WANT TO BE THERE.... COME ON, THE KERN WITHOUT THE CANNON'S. Who would give Ron and BAM any competition!!!

I spoke with Damian again yesterday, they are still full. We have a space up by the office, and are happy to have a spot reserved. But we would happily more into a spot closer to party central if it opens up. I just can't imagine that the park is full, but we'll see. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

It really is strange that the park seems to be sold out.
That has never happened before.
I wonder if part of it is under construction or something.
Kim, grab a spot and come to the rally!
At least you'll have something and maybe you can
move closer when you get there.

Everything is only a short stroll from party central!

We (Glenn & Nancy) and Tim Can will be there, but we're out in S.O.B. world. Looking forward to seeing you. I think we have spot 204 and Tim is our neighbor. Very scattered this year.

New Guy Needs a Space

Just got my 66 Safari roadworthy. Would love to live in aluminum with you if a space opens up. Otherwise I might just make it a day visit.

Thanks!

Welcome Ron.
Hope you can get a spot.
But come on over for the potluck in any case.

Rally notes

Also...
Lianne mentioned on the yak thread that the campground next door is called Camp James and it is also very nice. Apparently there is a path between the two campgrounds, Rivernook and Camp James, so if someone can't get into Rivernook it might work to camp next door. "Party Central" is usually at Rivernook, site number 455, because it is larger and on the end of the row.

The Saturday night potluck is a costume party and you can bring whatever you like. We always have tons of food.

Usually there is some kind of happy hour on Friday. Check the white board at #453 for updates. Sometimes we all meet at the local pizza joint on Friday night. All suggestions for fun are most welcome!

There are certain folks who are great at lounge chair napping
but there is also hiking, fishing, shopping, salooning, and even golf nearby.

And Sunday morning there is often a "leftovers" potluck brunch before people head out.

There are campfire rings so if you have a little firewood to bring that always helps keep the marshmallows toasting.

Hey it's October already!

Hi Bam Camper and everyone: We are going to be serious Airstream campers again. Sherry is in her first year of retirement so the planning is on. We will not be able to make it to Rivernook this year (Cabo San Lucas) but just got off the phone with Rivernook and we are reserved for Oct 14 to Oct 28 yes that is two weeks in site 426. So, let have a huge turnout in 2012. Look forward to see everyone again, and looking for rallies down in So. Cal.

Robert and Sherry

ps Hi Kim Cannon

Looks like we will get in a day early. We will be leaving L.A. Thursday evening after Becky gets home from work and we should get to the campground around 10-11 pm. We have river front site #427 that night then move to site #422 Friday with a Monday departure. It will be nice to meet all of you soon.

PS
Just got off the phone with Damion. If someone wanted to attend the rally but couldn't get a site, it looks like site #50 just opened up and is currently available for the entire weekend.
