Gary,

Maybe Ron could/would call and use his charm with the folks at Portal, explaining that you're with the group (Ron?) The owners, managers and reservation system are all new for this year and they don't appear to have the same degree of flexibility as the prior ones.

I already have a call into Dan.  Got the message when I called so I left Dan a message.  Hope I can help.

I have talked to Dan and looks like Brinks will have a partial or possibly a full hookup site.  Will have details and site numbers tomorrow afternoon when we return from road trip.

Gary could have our site if he wouldn't mind moving on the 30th when we come in.

I got another email from Portal this morning, from Dan the manager. Apparently the "link" between my reservation and RV Forum got lost somehow and they did not fit me in when there were previous cancellations. Dan now says he is working on it and will let me know later.  Since we will arrive tomorrow, I hope it isn't too much later.  :)

Many thanks to Ron for intervening - looks like it is working much better than my own efforts with them.

Terry: thanks for the offer.  I gather you have a reservation for 4/26 but won't arrive until 4/30?  Does Portal know you will be arriving later than they expect you?  I don't think they will let me occupy your site those days unless you tell them its ok.

Yes Gary, we called and told Portal of our delayed arrival.  We had been scheduled to arrive 4/26 but slipped it back to 4/30.   They "know" so maybe a reminder on that change would help them figure you in.  but we do want the same site 3 when we arrive.  Go for it and we look forward to seeing you.  Please don't leave before we get there!

Received a call from Portal indicating the Brinks will be in site 21 in on the 26th and out on the 1st.  A confirmation will be sent to Brinks via E-mail.  Glad we could help.  See you tomorrow at Portal.

Al & Vel Woods were at Portal to greet Russ when he arrived at 08:00 this morning.  The Brinks arrived this after noon followed later by Fitzgeralds and Ruwards. The Woods have already been on the off road trails.  Looking forward to everyones arrivals.

There is one partial hookup sight available (Water & Electric) being held for the RV Forum until Friday then it will be released for whoever comes first.  So if you can see your way to join us at the RV Forum Moab Rally call Portal now and identify yourself as a RV Forum member to get this available sight.

Ron,

From the information I got the site you show as available is already taken.  They told me they would send me an e-mail this coming week.

Ron,
Please add Mike and Ann Shedivy to list of attendees.  They made reservations a week or so ago and did mention the forum.  You met them once Thanksgiving at Jerry's .

Anyone who hasn't been to Moab and is undecided whether to come, check out The Moab experience in our forum library. Just click the Library button above and select Places to see and things to do. One caveat - all I could hope do in an article is whet your appetite; There are so many places to explore that it would take many visits to see it all. But, come once and you'll want to come back.

Ron,

Since you are at Portal, would you check tomorrow morning, Friday and see what has happened to our reservation.  I see that Russ is in site #9 and we were reserved for that site.  I'll try calling them first thing in the morning; but I may not have cell service.  If they don't have our reservation and don't have space for us, I'd like to know before we drive up there.
Hate to bother you, but you seem to be the man in charge at the moment.

Gee Ron, I thought you were going to share photos of you singing and dancing. Remember, it's your turn to perform this year.

  Bad untrue rumor.

By the way will be taking a trip to Musselman Arch, Shaffer trail and Pucker pass tomorrow.  Will be a fun ride and I suspect off road trip photos will be posted tomorrow evening.

Sounds like you'll be gone when Griefers and we arrive. ETA around noon, unless the ladies decide to do some shopping before we hit hwy 191. Have a good trip.

Looking forward to seeing everyone.

Can't wait to cut that 4" diameter hole in the roof of Mike & Wendy's motorhome. Hope he brings plenty of caulk  ;D

When we get back from the 4-wheel road trip today we will all be gathering at our site (#21, next to the restrooms) for happy hour(s).   Nancy is making her killer cheesy nacho dip and later we will throw a variety of sausages on the grill later and bring out a macaroni salad.   Might even be a bottle of wine lying about, looking for an empty glass to fill.   So bring your chair, your appetite and your favorite potion!

The sausage and wine were great, but once the sun goes behind the cliffs, it cools off quickly.  So I'm here writing about it while a few of the more hardy souls are still sitting out chatting.

I see they have started a small fire, so I may have to got back out :)
