    I would try to go this year since we didn't last but it's a bit far for us coming from Vancouver. If we could get one planned farther south. We would go. Been doing more camping at a place called carter bridge. Outside of Estacada Oregon

    It has been a busy year and I missed most of the planning for this thing. Unfortunately, I can't get that time off from work. I guess my boss thinks her vacation is more important than mine! Have fun at the rally and hopefully we will run into some of you at other campgrounds this summer. I am trying to convince the wife that we should camp for spring break in early April.

    We would love to attend as we'll be traveling through the area in early August. But all the sites are booked.

    If anyone who has a site reserved has to cancel, we'd appreciate knowing about it.

    Also, how likely is it that we would score a walk up site earlier in the week?

    Thanks!

    Walk-up site are normally ,at most CG, can be fairly easy on tue or wed. Their are also other CG's right around it so it;s a good chance of getting a site. We would love to see you there.

    ok, count us in! If someone cancels, we'll jump on it. If not, we'll plan to arrive on Tuesday and look for a walk-in. 2 adults and no kids.

    Looking forward to this rally!

    After getting a text from Larry (as in Vicky and Larry), I've found no sites available. Probably just as well. I had shoulder surgery done during the Christmas break and it's worse now than it was before I let them chop and cut.

    C'est la vie.

    We'll miss you guys. I'm thinking positive that we'll be going. We have reservations but I'm having another total knee replacement the end of this month and I'm assuming I'll be okay to go in August but we'll see.

    There are several FCFS sites in the CG which may be available if you arrive Wed or Thur. There are also two other CGs nearby on the lake and, if all else fails, a number of boondocking opportunities on the logging roads that lead up into the mountains on the west side of Baker Lake Road.

    That's our plan, Tom. But I check the website frequently to see if there have been cancelations. If I get lucky I'll jump on one and reserve it.

    We have been thinking about the FCFS's. Worst case scenario is we'll pop out and swing by (grabbing Larry & Vicki for chow).

    For what it's worth, the reason we decided to do dessert instead of a full blown pot luck was for the same reason as noted earlier. With dessert, nothing's too cheap to count and it's a lot more relaxed. Nobody slaves unless they really want. Store bought is nearly as good as homemade.

    Just getting in to our pup but will keep my eyes open for the planning on next year's.

    I am out on the coast, if you want good weather Aug. and Sept. are pretty solid bets. Let me know if we can help plan at all if next year's end up at the coast. We are in Aberdeen.
