Okay - email worked for me, but it seems we have to mail checks in to reserve the space anyway. She is holding 10 spots for us, but doesn't think too many others will be there that time of year. Here's what she said:

It would best if they all make reservations so we can keep tract of the sites. I am going to hold 10 sites for your group and as we get closer we can open them up if you don't need them. In looking at the map I will hold all the point and and maybe a few in the middle where it is a little flatter.

I also want to be sure you know the dam is half full from the reconstruction, we can not fish for another year and the water is brown at this time. Please be sure you guest know so they won't be disappointed.

So - I guess we send in checks...

Once I get a head count, I'll talk to Frank at the cafe to make sure he knows we are coming...

Static - you son of a...

Static is being a curmudgeon. I predict he will make an appearance.

Definitely looking forward to this.  Not sure what I'll be driving -- the syncro tranny isn't working right - had it re=built - took it in to get it re-re-built - might need to be re-re-built.  Is so will be in a van of some sort or another.

See you all in Oct.

I have my reservation  in, will see you there.

Comment by Brett Budlong on September 18, 2012 at 6:56pm

how cold does it get there at the end of October?

Comment by Big Blue's Driver on September 20, 2012 at 5:28am
My guess is that the evenings will be quite chilly and the campfire will be a popular spot. We'll have a heater in the bus running for sleeping.

Werner, Who did your rebuild? Reason I ask is because I have had my 87 Westy AT rebuilt 3 times and it STILL isn't right. I am now going elsewhere (to the guy who does rebuild for Bus Lab) and my previous mechanic is NOT touching my van again.
