    Subscribing. Not sure about this one, the wife has me committed to some old lady friend of her's 90-something birthday in Ventura early September.

    Thanks! Hope to be able to make it. I just noticed the dates were from September 1st through the 8th (which is a saturday to a saturday if I checked correctly) is there a reason this did not fall on a normal weekend? Id imagine more people would be able to make it then.

    I should still be able to get away for a couple days being so close to here.

    At the moment, it looks like I will arrive on Sunday evening, and stay through either Wednesday or Thursday - haven't decided yet.

    From Colorado, I am off to California to run the Owens Valley for 5 or 6 days.

    Looks like this won't happen for me at least this year. We have our Granddaughter due in the first part of Sept. So have to be ready to haul the mail to KS. When the time comes.

    Some unexpected life happenings happened and I might now be able to make this trip. Yes I know I started it but as life would have it my daily driver just got taken in to the shop for a possible engine change. If it gets fixed under warrantee then I might still be able to if not not sure I will. I really do not want to miss out on this awesome trip but might have to. Will let you all know as I know more.

    We'll keep hoping. I got a fresh (well.. salvage) engine for my Tbird, courtesy of the insurance company, after I accidentally drove it into water... hehe

    Well I just found out yesterday that they will be replacing the motor under warrantee. It had a recall on the motor anyway what saved me was that there was a test done at 100,000 miles and it passed. Then 64,000 miles later it wont pass so Hyundai is replacing my motor in my car free of charge and I know have a loaner car till mine is done. SOO It is looking like I will still be able to make it. NOW to get my Explorer to a true 4x4 :)

    I know everyone is talking about the KOA site, and it looks great. But its pricey (as far as campsites go). I'm looking for something nearby that is a little less costly. The alternative to a cheaper RV site is a tent. Did that last year and though I had a great time, it was chilly. Of course we were camping at 10,400ft.
    Any suggestions? Anyone else considering primitive camping?

    Ok, well if we figure out what kind of accommodations everyone is wanting, then we can at least have all the motel folks in one motel, all the RV folks in one park and all the primitive camping folks in one place. Ideally those three places would be as close to the others as possible. As I said I'd go primitive in a flash but remember the cold nights last year. If a person isn't too shy, I do have a tent that Gman gave me that is supposed to be HUGE (his words). I haven't had a chance to set it up yet, but according to the previous owner its good for... what was it Greg.. 10 people?
    Just trying to fit within my budget by helping others with their budgets and throwing out possible ideas.

    Just butting in to say while the KOA is kinda expensive, it is also real nice. The cost will pay for itself with convenience to town.

    Just my .02
