Beau the sites are $27.50 I think and its about $6.00 for an extra vehicle I think? Sounds like Jesse, Jeff, Ramsey, Jimmeh, Me, Shane, and Rob are camping? Sounds like we will need 3 spots 'cause that's a min. of 2 trucks/2-3 people per spot. Can everyone who wants to camp PM me so I can have a solid count?

Other than that Beau the plan is to meet a Blue Lake and then whoever wants to camp will head to the campground later. If anyone wants to camp Fri night I need to know that too.

OK boys... I've reserved 3 spots for Sat night. It's a max of 2 vehicles per campsite but they do have overflow parking if we have more trucks than that. It's $23.34 or something like that per site per night, I'm taking care of the reservation fees so someone should bring me beer.. haha. The guy said he thought the vehicle fee was $10.00 per extra vehicle but I'd have to call the park to verify. Shane I had to give 'em a different name and address for every site so one is under your name. Spots are #28, #30, #31 for those interested. Anyone who wants to come on friday night let me know and I'll extend the reservations for atleast that many spots. Rob the spots are camping so they have no electricity and no water. I think that covers it? Let me know if you have questions...

The GTG is still at blue lake, those campsites aren't big enough for all of our rangers to be in 1 place...

No electrical/water/plumbing hookups at our sites, the sites that do have those are already booked by other folks, so it isn't even an option.

Meet stays at Blue Lake for the awesome venue for the ever so essencial group shots!

Things needed: tent, sleeping bag, snacks, fooders(I don't intend to bring the bbq with me to the campsite), drinks, change of clothes, bathroom stuff(there's on-site showers and bathroom facilities), basic camping stuff ya knows. Each site has a firepit with grille and picnic table. Right across the baby street from our sites is the bathroom and shower....a whopping 50' walk or so.


Did I cover everything? I REALLLLLY need to update the first post. Gonna start working on that right now.

Campsites are kinda small(in regards to usable 'floor' space), but I figure 30 and 31 can handle two of the huge tents that Marie has. 28 can handle multiple tents on-site, so size of tent really isn't an issue. I didn't take a measurement, but I guess the 'lots' are approx 60ft deep and approx 40 ft wide? With trees and the above mentioned firepit and table and driveways measuring approx 40-50ft. 30 and 31 have a slight downgrade coming down from 28, but the plots where I see tents are alot more flat compared to the gradual hill.

I have a tent as well. Can't remember how big it is though. I am tempted to just throw my canopy on and sleep in the back of my truck.

Anyone talk to Jesse latley?

I texted him the other day about something unrelated... I'll text again I suppose?

Like I mentioned before, I have some spare tents that will comfortably fit 1 person... anyone who needs me to toss 'em in just let me know...



EDIT: just heard back... he said he's camping as long as the passport comes in time... haha
