As long as there is not another group in the group site, it shouldn't be a problem. Save a spot for me and a few fish too.

Not a problem. When you get to the ranger station tell them you are with the four corners unit and just pay $12 for the additional day. Jan and I should be on site around noon. BTW, I did not fish last weekend, but the reports were good from members of my fly fishing club. The best fish I heard about was a 14" rainbow. You can float tube in the lower lagoon, but no wadeing.

Cool, no float tube though, which is probably a good idea. Got a fly rod, but have not caught one that way, plenty of strikes. Will bring fly and open reel rods and see what happens. Will be making red chili enchiladas and beans for added interest for the pot luck, but can make some great butterflied trout as well-T

Richard, we will be packing tomorrow afternoon and Wednesday morning. Any last minute needs? I think you asked for tables; I have a 6' plastic folding one that I am bringing. Are we set for firewood (can bring enough for one evening) and generators? What about an E-Zup?

Let us know

Float tubes are ok, but no wadeing. Shore fishing is just as good.

The table would be great, we should be good for wood not sure about generators. I know of several that will be on site, mine included. What is an E-Zup???

Space available?

30 silver bullets!!! Wow!
I sure hope there will be some space when my wife and I finally roll in around 1pm (????) Saturday. Kevbo, you be sure to tighten up ranks or we'll be parking up on the hill somewhere .

After teaching all week I'll be hardpressed to get out of Hemet much before 4pm and I suspect I can just barely make it to the free camping area about 5 miles west of Quartzite Friday night. I'll just have a beer and go to bed. Enjoy your M thingys. We'll have a nice breakfast Saturday morning and get on the road. Don't really have ANY idea how long it'll take to get to Cottonwood from there. We'll get there when we get there......

BTW, my wife plans on making her Mom's fabled spinach souffle for the potluck...hope she can make enough. It is by far the favorite veggie dish of our whole extended (both sides) family.

Looking forward (or is that eastward?) to this "really big shoe" of a rally.

The real count is 26. A few dropped off and did not remove their names from the list. A few on the list I never heard from once. I sent them numerous PM's and had no replies. I had to drop them before I paid for the site. We should have a few folks drop by for the day as well.

Quartzsite to Cottonwood is 225 miles. The speed limit on interstates in Arizona is 75 MPH except in the larger cities where it is less. I tow at around 65, that's my safe speed.

Out in that area of the state you can find a place to park and sleep at almost every exit. There are truck stops, rest areas and miles of desert.

We have a double load for the m-ball and I figure that we should have some left for Saturday before the pot luck. Take your time, stop if you are tired and get to Cottonwood safely!

You are all set for Saturday and Sunday nights at the area. I verified it with the rangers again this last weekend.

Richard,
An ez-up is one of those portable shade covers similar to a tent with no sides. Some models have screened sides.

We have one and plan to bring it, but most likely don't need it. The Ramada is covered and the weather is looking pretty good.

Hi, all,

Rosemary and I are in Goodyear. Just had to come and buy a house before the rally. Looks like we'll be Arizonans within a year or so, once the house is built.

Question about getting to the rally. We plan to leave here Friday morning. Any suggestions on the best route north? Should we take the two-lane 303 bypass or brave the traffic on 17. We're right at the Cotton Lane exit on I-10. When we get up north, what is the best exit to Dead Horse? There seem to be two possibilities, but perhaps one is better than the other.

Thanks in advance for advice.

The 303 would be a good route for Friday morning. You will have a few lights, but will avoid the Phoenix area. Take the 303 north to the carefree highway. Go east to I-17 and go North. Exit at route 260 (Verde Valley) and go West to Cottonwood. You will see signs to Cottonwood and Dead Horse Ranch State Park. C U at the ranch!
