Hi Goin and Crkwolf,

Talk about tarantulas!..I got to see my very own one while walking around the trail to the Lake..Steve told me they can jump, but only after I had gotten within 4 ft. trying to get close enough to shoot it (w/my dig. camera)

I've been working on the name tags, Milo..I'm making one for each member who has his or her own username..do you and Karen want your own?

Yes, we'd like our own. I think name tags will help.

I talked to the ranger at the park today and increased the number of spots we will need. We now have a lock on the entire group site!.

I had a question from a few people who will be getting to the park a day or two early and staying a few extra days as well. You can setup in the group site and stay as long as you pay the park for the additional days. Remember this is dry camping. A rest room is located at the loop and showersa are located their also. Generators are permitted in the group site except during quiet hours (10pm to 8am). Water is available as well as a dump station inside the park.

Post any questions you have and I will get you an answer!

I also found out that my flyfishing club has rented the site the weekend before this one. Maybe I should just stay up at the park all week

more fun than a barrel of tarantulas

man! you folks are crackin me up. this will be our first rally. being "ugly stepchildren" in our Argosy we were having some trepidations... the dialog in this thread has reduced that. We used to go to some snotty car rallies and didn't fit in.
the tarantula thing.... whilst in graduate school, a biologist friend of mine was doing research on tarantulas. We hunted them at night out in the Superstition mountains. They were docile and nearly impossible to perturb into an attack. They are prone to attacking each other but humans are not eddible.
we're not typically organization joiners so all of the membership stuff is somewhat daunting
can someone point me to the info as to where to send the rally fees?

thanks

Mike

Please do not have any worries about this rally. It's a kick back event. I have been working on the schedual of events and it is mostly, do your thing! We will have 2 atitude adjustments (social hour), 1 pot luck dinner and an open house (check out the trailer) period.

I have been working on a few gifts from some venors which will be given away at the pot luck. I think we will also have a very brief info of the club officers as well during the pot luck. I have been working on my speech. What do you think?

Quote:
Hello everyone. My name is Richard and I am the unit secretary. This is my wife Jan (pointing to Jan). I would like to thank everyone who came out and made this event a real success.
As far as the fees go, Fill out this form and send it to me . My information is on the form.

Don't worry, This is not a snotty group. Everyone I have met and/or camped with has been funny and friendly. Actually your Argosy will get lots of attention because many have not been in one.

Really Looking Forward

way forward. I don't usually plan this far in advance.

Plan? oh what a word.

Just wanted to say thanks to azflycaster. I've been gone since the 22nd and come back to find a full blown rally.


Looking forward to meeting everyone. Remember all. I have Courtesy Parking so if you need a place to stop next to Mesa Verde on the way you are welcome.

I took a look at the pictures on your site of you building your house, what a great project. Reminds me of the Dennis Weaver house in New Mexico. We have driven by that area numerous times on the way to Durango and other places. Your house story will make great fireside conversation. Looking forward to meeting you.

Uwe,
I also have Verizon and it seems to have pretty good coverage up and down I-17, although I haven't tried it at that park. If not I'm sure you could make a short trek to Sedona and get through. Would be great to meet you after following all your hard work and listening to you on the VAP.

February = still winter = tarantulas are cold-blooded, i.e., cannot regulate body temperature = cold weather = no tarantulas jumping out of trees

Being a biology teacher I have collected and kept numerous tarantulas in the past, several lasted 7 to 10 years in an aquarium (no water) in my classroom. I have even had one poop on my hand during a parent's night!! The parents were very impressed .
I will try to locate a few if you want....bring them to Arizona.

We Californians will have to try to figure out where we will be and at what time in order to "meet up" and form the CA aluminum brigade to AZ.
I'm thinking heading out the 10 from Banning, being there around 4pm or a bit earlier depending on getaway time.
Of course, we (wife and I) could go to Barstow (my place of growing up) but that would be adding mileage to the trip.
Still time to think on this.....

How nice of you Gnorgan, but don't feel obligated to bring the little darlings. Let them stay right where there are (no where near me). Did I say that outloud?

Flitzwhopper - Mike: You may not be the only Argosy. If my wife decides not to come along, (slim chance of that happening on this rally), I will bring SnorkyII, the Argosy. If she comes along then I have to bring the Airstream.

It is great to see all of the people signing up for this rally. Please don't forget to fill out the registration form and get it back to me.

BTW, I took this picture of and interesting site at the park last year. It's a 1963 Bambi that is owned by the ranger in charge of the park.
