.....

On the Arizona side, route 93 from Wickieup to Wickenburg is called the Joshua Tree Parkway and it's a scenic route.

Ardra,

I don't think Jan wants to go that far south. Once he takes 93 to Kingman he'll get on I-40 east to Williams then north to the GC.

Ron,

I agree that you should do the slide show. Wait, we won't be able to attend! :(

Jan,

If you come up through Monument Valley, I recommend you decide your stops and get reservations. We were down at Goulding's in Monument Valley yesterday, and it looked full, the park we are in at Bluff has had a lot of traffic, and we will spend next week in Blanding, who also advised us reservations are important. If you like to boondock, well, you're good...it's not like there is not a lot of open space... 8)

We are seeing a lot of RV traffic because the weather has been pretty decent, notwithstanding the winds.

Looking forward to meeting you in Moab.

Kim


Thanks for the info. I am planning to stay in campground 10 X.  They don't have any hook-ups, but it is quiet and nice nature walks. One night with out facilities is no trouble for us.

I don't think that I will have any more time than to see Grand Canyon. Navajo tour have to wait for next trip.
Thanks for the idea.

Does this mean that our record will be shattered? At the 2005 RV Forum Moab rally 22 people sat in our coach to watch Terry and Betty present a DVD of their Copper Canyon trip. The event was recorded in a Kodak moment here.

I'm eagerly awaiting the photo of 25+ people in Ron's Bluebird. (Did Ron add slideouts to accomodate all those people?)

Tom:   We will not show the show in the coach.   It will be up at the pavillion or next to my coach.  I have a portable screen and projector.  Why not come see us?

Would love to be there Ron, but we're tied up at home with puppies (third litter) for another couple of weeks, then other local commitments. RVing and boating have been on hold.

I think we should use the slot next to the condo we had the first year at Moab (not sure if anyone is in there this year) - we always threatened to put up sheets and show movies on that wall, anyway...like a drive-in movie!!

Ron - Count us in for your slide show.  Your photography is always a pleasure to view and we've enjoyed past ones.

Don - You're right about the Joshua Tree Parkway.  I was thinking it was north of I-40 and it's south.  That's what I get for not looking at a map!  :-[

Kim - You're probably seeing a lot of the FMCA Four-Wheelers on their way to Moab.  The planners are there two weeks before us and the rally is the week prior to us.  That's why we can't go earlier.

I think the wall would be fantastic to use.  And if there's anyone at home they won't even know it!  ;)

Since this is my first rally and my first trip to Portal, I have a question.  I have my email confirmation from them from back in August of last year showing dates and site #, etc.  Is it necessary for me to call or email Portal to confirm anything with them, or just bring my confirmation with me?  ???

I always like to confirm with them to ensure no surprises on my arrival day.  At times  they are unable to  get you into a specific site. I usually do so by email.

Ron,

Count us in! We really enjoyed the show at the Wildflower Rally.

All,

Incidentally, we also "carry the equipment with us", but in this case it amp/speakers, mixers, and the associated equipment for Tara's singing. If there's interest we might set up a song fest one evening (presuming Doug doesn't have a problem with it).

Ernie

PS  We did find the kinda nice weather (still a little chilly) in ABQ.

I am sure that you would be top performance of the day. But again, you are not coming. I don't think that we ever met you Tom.

Ok, who is going to set up the webcam and live stream Ron's show for those of us stuck elsewhere like the YSP indentured servants, those of us stuck at home and those in their RV's across this great land of ours? Have mercy on us and record it or go live. Why, there might be a spot in the library for it too!

After I have shown it to the group, I'll post a link where it can be viewed on-line.  You must have a PC however.  It won't show on a MAC.

Ron (and Shirley)--Yes to the slide show and to golf, as well, if you guys want to play one day in Moab as we did in Zion several years ago.

Mike--Debby and I are looking forward to seeing you, as we'll as your wife and son should they both be with you, again, too. Moab will be great fun, as always.

Henry--for what night will the catfish fry be planned?

Sheila--light butter on the popcorn, please!

And Jim Dick, please explain, in detail, why you won't be with us for Ron's slide show. It's only about 600 miles from Yellowstone.

I just got a response to an email I sent confirming our reservation.  I do this and take a printed copy.
In reference to an earlier post about confirming their reservation.  Since I made this last year, I thought
it prudent to confirm.

See you all in about a week ! ! ! !

Randy,

It's something called work. ;D It has been amazingly busy since we opened and there are only four of us here until next week. on Saturday, we had at least seven tour busses in the morning, mostly Asian. Talk about a madhouse!!

Bob,

I have been known to do over 700 miles in a day. Mostly because it got us home instead of having to stay in a campground three hours away.  ;D
