Ron

I just got off the phone with Dan, manager at Portal RV. He had the other Jones in my slot, partly due to the fact that Annie had left paper copies of everything with only last names and they went to a new reservation system. When the info was entered into the computer it automatically assigned all 3 "Jones" reservations to the other guy.

Dan said he received your email, but requested that everyone call in to confirm their reservations and to give him (or Bonnie) their full information (address, phone number, email). For folks calling to confirm, the number is 1-800-574-2028. Their winter office hours are 8.00-9.00am and 2.00-4.00pm Mountain time.

I locked my reservation in with a credit card and have received a confirmation email.

FYI Dan told me that, because of the new reservation system, he doesn't have the leeway that Annie had with respect to giving a group discount, so there is no group discount. The only discount will be either AAA or Good Sam.

I wouldn't know Ned. I was merely passing along a message. I got the distinct impression that reservations aren't locked in unless guaranteed by credit card, which is why I locked mine in.

It seems that, in addition to new managers and a new reservation system, Portal RV has new owners. So, folks shouldn't assume that any verbal agreement they had with Annie has any standing. The new managers are doing their best to pick up the pieces, but all they had to work with were some pieces of paper with incomplete information.

From the Portal RV site:
Quote
Rates from $24 to $27 per night for one or two persons; additional persons (over 11 years old) $3 each.

If Dan wants to give everyone a $3 discount, just have him put in -1 additional persons; -2 for $6, etc. ;D

In your case, you should only have to pay 1/3 the regular rate as there will be 3 Joneses parked one on top of the other!

LOL Karl, not quite. There are a total of 3 sites assigned to Tom Jones and only one of them is for me.

Tom,

I hope you're right, otherwise it could give new meaning to 'group camping'.

Our reservation confirmation form is for $168 weekly rate (which is, I think, pay for 6, get 1 free), for partial hookups plus tax for a total of $183.12

The field is $15 per night less 10% for Good Sam, AAA, etc. plus tax which is 9% so it sort of balances out.

Tom,

Received an email confirmation this morning.  Same price as you for 9 nights, but I expect that is before any discounts (Good Sam, FMCA, AAA, etc.).  They didn't ask for a credit card number, just stated the card wouldn't be charged until we arrive.

Our card won't be charged until we arrive either. The price I quoted was from our confirmation email which doesn't mention any discount. Rethinking the conversation with Dan, I assume the discount will be applied when we check in.

I have just modified the attendance list by placing an * in front of names of those having Satellite internet.  Looks like even though there will only be nine satellite systems in the RV Forum group at moab we should have sufficient wifi coverage to cover the RV Forum Framily. ;D ;)

I have just talked to Portal RV Park and confirmed that sites 31 and 34 are still available for the 2006 Moab rally and being held for the RV Forum Group.  If anybody would like to attend and do not yet have a reservations please call Portal RV Park at 1-800-574-2028 this week.  Both sites have water and electric.   Please let us know when you make your reservation so I can add you to the list.

Ron,

Just for clarification, sites 32 and 33 are listed as "friends of Jones" but, as I previously confirmed with Portal and reported here, that's a different Jones (although his name is Tom also) and they're nothing to do with our group.

We have a reservation but I still don't know exactly what we will get until we get there.  We have site #9 for two nights (4/26 & 4/27) but after that Portal was only willling to commit to "the field", even though we will leave before some of you even arrive (on 5/1). Something may work out.

I suspect they do not want to commit the site to someone staying just part of the time in case there is someone who will arrive before we leave and stay thru the main days of the rally.  We will get whatever is left over when we arrive.  We don't mind conceding the better site  to someone who will get better use of it for the rally.  I have been assured we are on the waiting list for a site for the time we are there.

Want to let the Framily know first that Peg and I will not be able to make the Moab Rally.

So FHU site 12 is available. Our reservation is for 4/28 through 5/7, departing on 5/8.

I haven't contacted Portal yet.

Hi Everyone,

Our apologies for being absent for quite some time.  Our grandaughter has had some problems, so we have been running up there to help out.  Nothing serious, just helping the working parents.  I don't know how new parents do it when both work.  My son and his wife are teachers, so it's hard for them to stay home.  Also apologies for not showing up at Quartsite, we took off for the kids and got caught up in what was going on there.  Lots has been going on.  Tim got tired of full retirement so now he is working part time doing engineering consulting.  We also got a dog (puppy) that has taken nearly all my time with training.  And,....<whew> we had a Datastorm motosat put on the motorhome, so Tim can connect to the internet more reliablyand it is allowing him to work on the road.

Are plans are to make it to Moab; and I have checked with our friends, the Knights, to see if they are planning on coming.  They are not, so a full hook site reserved from April 28th to May 7 is available.  I have not told Portal RV that they are not coming.  So anyone who needs a site, let me know.  I'm not sure how to handle it; but we'll figure out something.

Other than that, not much going on here.  At the present we west of Tucson, AZ at the Western Ways RV park.

My aplogoies for not keeping everyone posted and for missing Moab.

Gary, I'm gathering from reading message that you will be at Moab?

Marsha~

Ron,

I don't know if you are keeping the master list updated for the Moab 2006 attendees/sites; but I just confirmed my reservation with Dan at Portal RV.  Mike and Wendy Lawrence (Coke) are moved to our friend's site since the Knight's can't make it.  So Lawrences will be in site #29 and Tim and I will be in Site #9.

It looks like we will be getting in late Friday night as we can't leave San Diego until early Thursday morning.

Would there be any interest in taking the Canyonlands by night boat tour and dinner during the 2006 Moab Rally?  Have heard this is a spectacular adventure. The tour includes dinner(on shore) and a light show on the canyon walls.  Details can be found at: 
http://www.moab-utah.com/canyonlandsbynight/.  If there is any interest I will check on possible group rates etc.
