Might this be it :D

Thanks for the photo Tom and Jefe;)

How about some directions to that spot from 86 and S22. Once I have that, I'll send out an email.

From the 86S make a right on to s22, as soon as the road starts to go uphill and the first road closed sign will be on the right as the picture shows. For those who have trailers or big RVs may want to pass it, go to the next available dirt road, and make a u-turn to get to an easier access road. Here is another pictures with descriptions of this. Hopefully they makes sense.

I stole them from Jefe's page. :D

Rick I remember you were a little concerned about doing the pot luck incase some granolas drove by or something. Are we still planning for this?

for the bigger rigs coming from the east you'll have go a little farther and make a 180*. With my parents RV and flatbed there is no way to doulble back in that close of space. There is a turn out a little farther down the road on the oppisite side.

On another note ...why are we on the bluf for this run? It's harder to get to for the RV's, it's alot smaller space, and there is no protection from the big "W". Just curious.:confused:

The bluff has WAY more space than the "usual" spot. It also has no real soft spots - so no large RV can get stuck. Yes, it's a little bit more difficult to get into for the larger vehicles.

Most importantly, there is few families with kids roaring around the campers on motorcycles/ATV's up there.

The view is also better..

Most importantly, the granolas will be looking for people in the usual area(s) - which is normally just off North Marina Dr.
