Just under three weeks to the rally and I'm getting excited to see the Pinnacles and our Streamer friends again!

Here's the latest map of known Airstreamer locations. I'll have a printout of it as a reference at our trailer in site 91.

We still don't know who has booked space 86 for the rally.

The other apparently empty spaces in A loop are for walkups, first come, first served. They are very nice spots so if you haven't booked or if you've booked but want to move in closer when you get there, come down a bit early and see if these are available.

Hello! Are there any plans for a Friday night meet and greet and potluck on Saturday?
We're excited to visit the Pinnacles again. I really want to hike those trails again. John won't likely be able to hike since he'll probably be mending from his knee surgery that is happening this week. I'll just prop him up under the awning and if everyone who walks by can check to make sure his beer is full, that'd be great!

I just read the campground description on Reserve America. It says there are showers at the campground. Is this true? I don't remember there being showers last year. Can anyone confirm?
Also, in regards to the water system upgrades that John mentioned, does this mean there are water hook ups at the RV sites now? We filled up at home because there was worry that the spigots might be frozen.

The showers are pretty basic Cara. They take quarters. The water upgrades are to the main infrastructure only. There is a standard hose connection labeled drinking water at the entrance to D Loop where you can fill your tank. There are also "slick" hose bibs scattered around where you can use a water thief and hoses to reach your tank. We all have enough hoses to cobble together to work. Temps got into the mid 40s last week. It does get a little cooler at the campground than the weather forecast for Paicines indicate.

Thanks for the info, John! Showering at the campground makes all the difference since we have a small gray. We'll bring the blue boy along.
Our AS has been seeing a number of improvements since last August. Besides the new upholstery and paint work inside, we just replaced the original water pump. It didn't leak but, man, that thing was noisy! And it was getting weak. We also replace the sewer valves...those were leaking! Yuck! We finally got our fridge working on propane. Can't wait to see how our improvements work out although it's making Airstreaming slightly less exciting since we never know what could stop working next. She's becoming a pretty solid rig.
See you all soon!

There will be a potluck at 6 pm on Saturday. It will be under the oak at the back of A loop, same as last year. I'll be staying in camp on Saturday so that I can be there at the beginning of the potluck.

Those who plan to hike to the top and wait for the condors on the High Peaks Trail on Saturday may want to plan a dish with little prep. The condors don't show up until later in the afternoon and it's a long hike back to the parking lot. Ask me how I know.

There will be a Friday social hour(+) but I'm not coordinating it. I'll be hiking up to the High Peaks on Friday and waiting for the condors, so I might be coming down in the dark. Then I'll spend Saturday in camp nursing sore feet and refilling John's beer.

Yes, Doug, Lori, Don and I are handling Friday's meet and greet. We are arriving Thursday so we'll have time to get set up...

More details to come.

I'm hoping to make it, we have a reservation for #17 Loop A but plans are un-certain due to faithful companion's recent surgery. This would be my first rally and I may just go solo so I can meet you all. Hoping to be there.

As wagonmaster, I'm going to chime in and say that Don and Mark (Cyberous) and Doug and Lori were the first to offer to hold the Friday meet and greet.

Don and Mark are in space #97, which is located near our gathering tree. So lets make it official:

Friday meet and greet at site #97, hosted by Mark, Don, Doug and Lori, and anyone else who wants to participate. I'll propose a 5:50 pm start, but if any of the hosts want to chime in and change that, that's fine with me.

I've kept myself out of a hosting role for this gathering since I plan on being late. I'll be hobbling down the mountain after spending the afternoon communing with the condors. If I'm there on time, it will mean that the condors stood me up. In either case, I'll be well ready for a beer. I'm looking forward to seeing you all, eventually.
