I've marked my calendar. Maybe Murphy won't try to chase down the Sheriff this year.

hey robert,

i wasn't planing on reserving the group site but we could if we get 7 rigs signed up. but i really don't see any problem with getting sites in the middle of the week at this remote campground without reservations. anyway i need no fees upfront, everyone can pay upon arrival at both parks.

Thinking about August is a little hard with 15" of snow since Saturday and more forecast tonight and for the rest of the year, but we are interested. We went to Lassen several years ago in the late spring, but there had been so much snow earlier that spring, everything was buried. We've seen the lava tubes at Craters of the Moon NM, but would like to visit the Lava Beds. Every time we travel through N. Cal., I look at them on the map and think I'm going there some day, so maybe that day is closer.

So put us down for a maybe and when the sun starts to return and Spring is near enough that we dewinterize the Safari for our annual trip to New Mexico, we'll be able to decide just what we're doing. We never travel much in summer—too many tourists, traffic, etc., so this would be different.

Looks like everyone is from Cal. and I hope that "outsiders" are welcome. Seems like 10% of Coloradoans are from California after all.

hi gene,

funny that i have also looked at the lava beds on the map for years before i finally made it there. it's just so remote but that's it's charm i have discovered. this is really the boonies. and i am with you about the summer crowds so you will not see any at the lava beds that's for sure. would love to see you at the rally. enjoy the snow!

Soooooooo....now that Casini 2009 is in the rear view mirror, I am starting to look forward to this rally! Are we going to reserve the group site at Gurnsey Creek? I think we have 7 units going. And, is it necessary to reserve a spot at Eagles Nest RV Park? If so, what nights are we planning to stay?

who wants to join us???

oh my god dee, that puppy is toooo cute. can't wait to meet him at gurnsey.

So i went ahead and reserved the 7 spot group camp at gurnsey because that way we are guaranteed to be next to each other. I dropped an email to eagle's nest telling them we have 7 rigs coming. waiting for a reply.

i am really starting to get excited about trying out the cararally format. it will be fun to drive together for the beautiful road trip to the lava beds. also looking forward to trying out boondocking at gurnsey. this will be fun.

Hi Dan,

We named the puppy Bailey, cuz he is cream-colored....and, Bailey's Irish Cream came to mind! Bailey will be with us....hopefully, by then, he will be sleeping later than 6:00-6:30am (yes, it's like having a baby in the house). He already has a crate set up in the Airstream where the dinette is....er, used to be. He loves going in the trailer with Paul and make himself at home!

We boondock most of the time, mainly using solar panels....do you have a generator? We will have ours along, so we can charge you up, if need be. The biggest challenge for us is trying not to fill up the gray water tank....we can usually go for ~10 days. These trailers were made for boondocking And, you have seen how we boondock

Thanks for reserving the group spot at Gurnsey....if you want us all to shoot some $$ your way, please let us know! And, let us know if Eagle's Nest wants individual reservations....

Cheers

We're still thinking about joining you, though not traveling together (is that what a cararally is?). We're in the midst of a trip and are in northern Minnesota now, so someday we'll make up our minds.

hi gene,

it would be fabulous to meet you at lassen or lava beds, whatever one you can make. cararally means we have 2 rally spots and we travel between the two as a caravan. both places are so cool and close that it's natural to combine them together. hope to see you in august. enjoy your trip in minnesota.

I just completed installing new axles on the Trade Wind. I thought the old ones would be ok for another year but the ride on I-80 at the Fairfield area kinda tossed our things around in the coach. NOW we're ready for Lava Bed travel. After the rally maybe Dee, Coastal View and us can cararally back down to the south. We are going to Carmel for the weekend after Lava Beds.

We are thinking of driving north to Lassen via 395 like we did back in the eighties. I don't remember if the route, particularly through Lassen, is tow friendly. Anyone know. Anyone want to travel with us?
