Thanks for the great video! Just shared it with about a dozen of my favorite friends and family. Can't wait until I can get to Yosemite in my Airstream!

Thanks! It's that 230 horsepower 454 that makes it possible! We should plan an Airstream weekend at Yosemite.

Yosemite is a very beautiful place and very popular too. For those that don't know, the campgrounds sell out months and months in advance for the summer months. I would bet that next summer is already sold out...you need to book reservation way in advance.

You get to plan our trip to Yosemite.....

Where and when? Sounds good to me....did you tow a toad or stay parked on your trip? Or did you drive the 34.5 around the park? p

I have the 28footer which is a great size for the national parks. A 34.5 might be over the max length. Each space tells you what the max is. We didn't tow anything. Took bicycles with and used the excellent bus system running throughout the valley. There is a smog problem in the valley so they are trying to really limit auto use. I want to go back in April.

28'--duh, what was I thinking

Okay you are only 4 feet longer than we are....April sounds like a great time....did you stay right in the valley? When do we have to make reservations? Bikes work for us.....and certainly the buses work as well.....before Memorial Day and after Labor Day are good times....p

It's a must to stay in the valley or I think it is just not worth it. There are 3 campgrounds, Upper Pines, Lower Pines and North Pines. Lower and North are closed until beginning of April and middle of April. Upper is open all year. One can only book from tomorrow thru April 14 as of today. I believe on December 15, reservations open up for the next 30 day block. Most reservations are taken on first day reservations are available. Looks mostly booked already for first two weeks of April, I'm betting due to Easter and spring break.

Upper pines is mostly still open for last two weeks of March. It will be cold and wet there whether it is march or April. And probably not much of a difference in chances of snow on roads for end of March or beginning of April. We have been there in february in the past and had a great time. We stayed in Upper Pines earlier this month.

Ummm, no requests to go along with me, as they ALL know that costs of fuel will be 'shared', lol. My Airstream has already been 'volunteered' for duty at the race here in St Pete, FL next April. Volunteered, but not agreed to! It's mine, all mine! lol.
Thanks, Derek
