    Now, taking a quick look at the Reservations for the loop, pretty much the whole road turned red today. Checking site calendars, some of them will open up again before the Rally weekend.

    Wasnt directed at anyone in particular.. Keep in mind that in years past we have held the rally in "C" and "D" parks so making lists of prefered sites was easier, this year we are trying to get into an "A" (or "B" at worst) park and actually have to compete for sites..

    Yes it is nice to know where everyone wants to be so we can try to be close to one another but calling out 3 or 4 sites that you want just makes a busy nearly full loop appear even fuller for others whom want to attend their first rally.. Hence.. FCFS.. You want to call out a prefered site go ahead, if it gets booked prior to our resie window opening don't publish your plan "B","C" or "D" sites..

    Now since we all started out looking at the one loop then some looked at another loop, exactly what loop are we trying to book?

    We are still hoping to get on the original loop. "HOPING" is the key word....they are booking quickly, but I'm hoping to book on Wednesday, a few days early. If it works, great....if not...oh well.

    458-471 looks good. As does, 473-488.

    Is there any reason we haven't looked at East River sites?

    I found those sites to be more compact, but I could be wrong.

    So, to let people in on whats been happening with the beginning stages of booking, I have booked my site, yesterday morning at 7:00 AM., and have taken site #411 on the original road. My first choice disappeared on me in a split second and I had to go to plan 'B'. As of right now, #410, right across from me, is still open. So if someone was looking to get 411 as their first choice, I apologize for taking it, but 410 is still good to go.

    We prefer the East River sites. There is definitely a variety as far as sizes go but have had some pretty good sized sites in this area. Also, very private with lots of bush between sites and they orient the entrances so that they don't face each other.

    Well, I'm not sure whats happening. Everyone needs to book in the next 2 days or so, and I wanted to make sure I was going to get a site. Things were going fast on that original road, so I grabbed one.

    I've never booked in the area, to be honest. And the last time I went around those sites to have a look, was probably 5 or 6 years ago. So, my memory has probably failed immensely! lol. Good to know everyone has options though!

    So, since this morning all the reservable sites filled up and all that is left is non reservable, and if your like me and was busy, and didnt get online to reserve, don't fret.. yet.. If your fall into this category send me a message, there are a few options open to us, not as convienent but there is a private campground just next door to Arrowhead or there is Mikisew PP a little further North..

    Benefit of Mikisew is 1) lots of open sites right now. 2) your PP vehicle pass will get you into Arrowhead without having to pay the day use fee..

    I got caught snoozing so I'm over on a tent site in East River but it's a pretty decent sized site. I'm on site 336

    I can always try to switch to one of the non-reservable sites when I arrive.

    If you can't get a closer site on the day of arrival, thats no problem, you can grab your lawn chair and come over to one of the other rally sites as much as you want and hang out for the day. Pat Strawhouse's site and my site are a little off the beaten track from where everyone else is too, so we might be doing that as well.
