Hello all! I'm a brand new newbie here...and as it happens, we live about a third of the time in Kernville, so seeing this rally is a pleasant surprise.

What's the ritual/protocol for people who actually live where a rally is taking place? "Provide vast quantities of alcohol" seems to be on the list somewhere...

I note that the announcement mentions a "cool dive cowboy bar / restaurant". If that's referring to Ewing's, it's had a change of hands and style; it still does live music, but it's not really a cowboy bar anymore, nor really much of a dive. The food has improved dramatically; however, the prices are quite high for Kernville; they're about average for Las Vegas. Food's worth it, though, and the bar (which is now kinda Polynesian themed) makes damn good drinks. But don't go expecting all the cowboy memorabilia; they disposed of all of that. (We bought the murals.)

Hi jp and welcome in.

If your bringing your trailer all the info is in post #1.

If your joining in without your trailer. You can do that too.

It's very common for folks who can't camp to come by and join the party.

Either way you are more than welcome. More folks = more fun.

Bring your lawn chairs. There never seems to be extra ones.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Rudy

So sorry about the slight Mickey.

Please don't be upset. Ed doesn't like to talk about cats much although he is warming up to TT so you may be next. He did bond with you at Casini if ever so briefly. He will be bringing some cat treats to try to make it up to you.

Food bribes always work for Ed anyway.

Come to think of it...food works very well for this entire group...

the river in August

To whet your appetites, here's a picture (taken today by my webcam) about a mile upstream from the campground; it's looking downstream from my back yard in Kernville. (It was a dry winter, so the river's been quite low all year.)

Hello jpg and welcome.

It doesn't matter if you live close by...just hitch up and come on over.

Sometimes a short travel time is a real plus...more time to relax & play.

Come on down/over! Family, friends, and pets of all types are welcome.

Oh! Well, then, never mind! Is there some reason you don't mention the name of the place?

The namesake of the restaurant passed on a couple months ago; he was 94 or so. Quite the character; we were going to interview him for a historical project about two years ago, but he cancelled the session because it was the opening of deer season and he was going hunting.

thelma
Thelma,

according to the RV Park, they hold out site 443 for overnighters w/o a reservation. i'm going to call and use my considerable influence to have that space turned over to us...

considering i hold no sway whatsoever, other than to bride them, it will be ours in a matter of mins.

Guido
