Pinnacles National Park, California - YouTube

A great video link about Pinnacle National Park. We REALLY are looking forward to our first visit there.

We've camped at Pinnacles campground and unless we get a real cold snap, I doubt bibs will freeze. When we camped here we arrived with full fresh water tank and about 100' of hose with a water thief. It was easy to reach a bib and refill my fresh tank.

We'll be bringing a corn-in-the-hole beanbag toss just in case things get too slow. We'll also have a pot of mulled wine under our awning for anyone who gets thirsty.

There's also a really nice interpretive center that's worth a visit.

I'm all for a potluck without signups; seems to have worked well in the past. Never left hungry; besides if we run short on something, substitute wine...

Weather at Pinnacles National Park looks like it's going to be ideal for hiking. Highs in the low 50s and clear, with a chance of rain earlier in the week to clear the air.

I was just noticing at lunch how quickly the hills are starting to "Green Up" down here from the rain we just got. Conditions are looking ideal for the rally.

We're probably the most "local" people going to the Pinnacles Rally, so I'll let you know if you are coming from the North Hollister will be your last stop for Gas, Food and so on. It's probably 30 miles each way to the camp ground so plan for at least 60 miles of fuel once you leave Hollister or you'll be walking!

That sounds like fun! I'm running a meeting Thursday night, or I'd be there with you.

Good comment re getting gas in Hollister ... I seem to recall that there's a camp store that has typical camping food provisions, so if you left the peanut butter or milk home, you'll probably be able to get some here.

We are headed there on Wednesday, as well!

Btw.... If you have the need for Internet/cell phone coverage, you will likely need to drive about 10-15 miles outside the park. Sometimes it's nice to be disconnected, but Hollister is a good place to make that one last contact! :P

On another subject....the electrical was not reliable when we were there last spring....with just a few of us in the RV loop, our breakers were getting tripped constantly on the 100-degree days! We shouldn't need AC, so maybe the system will be okay on this trip.

I just spoke with the Park Office and fire restrictions are still in effect. They said they haven't received any rain. If you have a propane fire pit, you may want to bring it as those are OK to use.

I just checked with the National Weather Service and the forecast is dry with sunny afternoons in the middle 60s and overnights upper 30s. Great weather for my first rally. See you all soon.

Hey Doug,
Being from Fresno myself and looking at your profile, I figured you out and know you have the inside scoop on the weather conditions. What's your 7-day forecast looking like?

The campground has very limited contact hours during the week. Anyone know if a tent is allowed in RV sites? My dad is a tent camper and interested in coming along. He and his wife are newly retired and are considering building/purchasing a teardrop trailer. I think this is the right group to introduce them to the RV lifestyle.
We're super excited for this trip! The TT come home tomorrow night and Wednesday is 'get ready' day.

I've had good luck calling the Visitor Center a couple of times at 831-389-4485.
