There are no newbies. Just old friends we have not met yet.

The threads been dead since some of us just got back or are still in Quartzesite. A rally takes a lot out of you...If done right.

I returned the trailer to storage this A.M. and went to work. Where I was informed I was being sent to San Diego for two weeks. Hmmm. How to make this bad thing a good thing... So I offered to take the trailer to an R.V. park and save my boss a boatload of money since it would be cheaper than a Hotel.

So in the A.M. I'm off to an R.V. park that is on the bay. My happy boss called and paid the $660.00 and what I'm doin will be over by 2:00pm every day.

Toldfield can you get a group spot at Jalama in July or Aug? Maybe by then Chapparel can join in too?

I love that kind of talk. It looks like the reservation fee is $25. I will call them tomorrow and see what the restrictions are. Our favorite area is up at the top, Area B. Maybe I will have to go up Tuesday or Wednesday to make sure there is room for everyone by the weekend.

I don't think we have anything scheduled in July or August. Although in there somewhere is the balloon festival in New Mexico. So see what you can get and lets throw us a Rally!

We have FFT (Forced Family Togetherness) the last week of July/First week of August. I will have answers tomorrow night. I guess it can't be too intimidating to reserve a campground and throw it out to the wolves...

If you can get a beach campground in the summer you have built it and they will come.

I seem to recall some restrictions in the summer, but I can't find them tonight. It might be the St Patrick's effect. There is another great campground just east of Lake Cachuma that we are using for a group in April. It is a bit pricey for a small group, but a great place. It can accomodate 1500 folks camping on 40 acres, but $1500 is for a weekend.

Foiled Again

Well, I guess those more knowledgable than I were pretty confident that getting a group spot at Jalama was a pipe dream in the summer. The group areas are all booked through August. But, not to be a quitter I will find out when reservations can be made for next year. The other thought would be that the reservations taper off after Labor Day. If we look into a date that is open and drive around a lot to encourage global warming we might chance into a good weekend later this year.

You know last year at this time when we were again too late to book we resolved that this year we would book in time.

We really need someone half organized to remember to do this.

Since Time failed this year... How about Toldfield volunteering to remember next year? In case yiu forget. Don't worry we will have forgotten too.

I would take half organized as a complement. I will try to talk with someone at the camp and see what the lead time is on group reservations. Then with very little consultation, no committee meetings, and no legal consultations, I will send in the $25 deposit.

Unless I forget.

Sure, go ahead and call San Clemente a bust.......NOT..oh that's right, you missed one of the best beach rallys of the year. So what it was in February.

Shall we all remember snow in 29 Palms and gale force winds in Gorman...now who set up those retreats????

Of course Goin, you came through in Quartszite, or at least you had the only dog with manners.

So Goin, with your organizational skills, maybe you can find us a great summer rally location for 2008, just try to make there is water.

time

(He said, shaking his head sadly.)

Last summer when we failed to find a beach spot I said.

"Next Summer you should book us a spot at the beach."

Amazing how you remember everything else but that.

P.S. What winds in Gorman?

Apparently I don't have the good sense to leave this alone. The Jalama group areas do not have an open weekend until December. However I did find out that they will start taking reservations for 2009 on September 2, at 9am. Now being organized is not real high up on my list of accomplishments but I will set up a reminder and try to give them a call on that date. The pleasant lady in the reservation office said all of the summer weekends will be gone by noon. Since I can't figure out what I am going to do tomorrow, let alone next year, I will ask for any weekend in July or August. If there is a loud outcry about interferring with some major event around the 4th of July I will not ask for those dates.
