    Hello, I am looking at planning the 2018 So Cal Halloween Rally!!

    I am thinking about Blue Jay Campground near Lake Elsinore

    I chose the weekend after Halloween as I can't make it the weekend prior.

    What say you?

    Even if the vegetation gets burned camping should be open by November.

    I like the central location of Blue Jay and I agree, even if it burn some, unless if there is structure damage or something major, camping should be open by then.

    About the only structures are the pit toilets,

    We will keep an eye out as that is option #1

    Should we go with Anza Borrego Desert SP for option #2?

    Hmmm... somewhat tempted, as that weekend is also the big Academy of Model Aviation Expo at the Fairplex in Pomona, California.

    However, the drawback is the Union is in contract negotiations at work, with the contract expiring towards the end of October, so no PTO is being approved for any time at and soon after the contract expiration, just in case the Union votes to go on strike. Makes it tough to plan anything.

    Says it's mostly moving North and East, some west... as of this morning, Blue Jay is still spared as long as it doesn't keep creeping south. 30% containment so far.

    ... and Blue Jay is only like 50 miles from the Fairplex for Hoomi ;)

    Yeah, I used to live out in Southern California. I grew up there, and we camped at Elsinore at least a couple of times.

    My last 12.5 years in California, I worked in Pomona.

    Haybale I should be bringing a costume, candy and something for the potluck. I'm thinking of making venison sliders! I likely won't be getting into camp until later evening Friday as I'm not leaving work early. Should be in camp by about 8ish, hopefully earlier.
