The Big Larry is going to interact with the Park Personnel to get us in the same area based on the on going list of attendees. I registered on line as did several others.

The Mesquite camping area only has 20 sites while Sagebrush has 30.  Both have 30/50A service.

For those of you who might now want to cancel, I'm giving notice well in advance that Debby and I have now reserved a campsite in the Mesquite loop for next May. Fair warning has now been given.

Big Larry:   Will both of the campgrounds hold large coaches?   If we end up in two campgrounds, better make sure assignments will accommodate the larger rigs.

I plan to be in Palo Duro in a month or so and will spend some time reviewing the park layout with
staff there.  I also will make a personal contact point so we can sort everyone into a proper spot with
30/50 considerations as well as those with over 40' in length.  I will post info on this stuff once I have
been on site and looked at the area.   

I have been to Palo Duro many MANY times, but never as an RV'er.  I always drove to the end and took off for
an overnight hike.  I will let everyone know what I find out.

Wow, I must have done something wrong.  First phone call and first person to assist me took care of everything.  I don't think I was on the telephone for more than 5-minutes total.  The girl even put a note in there to request the Mesquite area and with the RVForum.net rally.

Just a note to all, as info, we put our house on the market yesterday about 2pm.  Today at 4pm it is sold.
As of July 31, 2014 we should be homeless.  That means we should be seeing you in all the old familiar places
in a few months.  We will begin our search in earnest to find a good quality 40-42 ft. Diesel pusher. 

Looking forward to seeing you all on the road somewhere.

Larry and Loretta,

Wow!  That's wonderful news.  You are really lucky to have sold so fast.  Of course, getting all your "stuff" packed and out of there on time will be the hard part, but I'm sure it will feel really good on August 1st.  Hope you find your dream coach just as fast.

It is actually Susan who is on the forefront of wanting to travel more...that's what I keep suggesting to her anyway... ::). Susan still works a 40-50 hour work week so she really is wanting to have more freedom and that translates to more, and more travel. I hope.

  For those of you that has big rigs, Margaret and I have stayed there for the last 3 years and have no trouble getting our rig in. We have stayed in Mesguite and Sagebrush. This year on our way to Red Bay in April they were building bridges across the low water crossings. A little tight there but they should be through by rally time. I believe there was 7 crossings.
  The Sagebrush area has phone service for AT&T but not sure about Verizon. However the Sagebrush area is as far back into the canyon as you can camp. I believe it was 7 miles from the entrance.
