Hi Laura

We are snow-birding in that area during your rally weekend. This sounds
like a ton of fun and we would love to join in. If you can get two more
non-govt types in, Ill cancel my other reservations. We can arrive early
if you need any help.

2air, ya got an extra pair goggles?

Thanks
Dale

I say, the more, the merrier. My only (tiny) concern is without reservations, don't know how many sites will be open. They have over 100 sites and I don't recall ever seeing more than 30 at a time (and that's pushing it) even during launch time. So I can't imagine it being a true worry... but my nature is... worry.

I'll try to get over to the park this week and assess how "busy" their "busy" season actually is.

Laura

goggles, tin foil 4 hats, binoculars, nasa leggings, champagne...

yep we're covered.

hey 'kill we trust ya to figure out something that will work.
______________

are the 'group areas' perhaps different looking than normal sites?

for example in some state parks "group" camping is a large flat area, loosely marked...

with only a few spigots and outlets to be shared by the group...

even that could work, daisy chain the water and juice as needed.

many of us carry gensets and most trailers can be 'self contained' for a weekend like this.
____________

how about a nasa themed meal...

i'll bring tang and fruit in a tube...

do they drink martinis in outta space...

or cosmos?

cheers

Nope - all in a field with individual power/water hookups. The sights aren't too close together so, if we're in a pinch, we could probably double up to squeeze a few more in!

Cosmo's for sure. Sounds like a cool idea: Feast of the Space Odyseey!

Larry,

What do you think about leaving on FRIDAY instead of Saturday, sounds like space may be a a premium the later we go? Reading between the lines of Laura. Maybe we could help with the setting up our area??!!

I'm not sure how to know, in advance, how much room will be available. They do NOT take reservations. I can plan to visit the park a few days before launch (say, Tuesday), see what is available and report back here or privately. I can give you my cell number to verify as well.

Anyone with another idea, just shout!

As suggested to me, I will figure out how to put this rally on the link for signing up and may just try to limit it to a particular amount of trailers.... then go via waiting list.

Laura

Laura,
I have never done this either so hope you can get it on a sign up link. I looked at the park link and does talk about only 10 guests per pass, not 10 rigs. I see you said it should not be a problem but have you discussed with them what looks to be a growing group of airstream space cadets out here wanting to be part of this and most non-gov. Not sure if you have a count but this could get big. I know they don't take reservations but even if you set up a sign up link will they take all of us? since it is growing, can you discuss the whole thing with them to get their thoughts and let us know.

I made another call to the person who approved the Group reservation (with guests @ #30). She assured me that they will accommodate everyone that can fit! I pressedd her about the 10guest rule and she was emphatic that it would not be a problem. She restated that it is "first come, first serve". She also said that she has not received any other Group Camping requests for that date. She agreed that it would not be wise for them to turn away ANY business!
Hope that helps - I feel a tiny bit better
Laura
