Title: Moab 2006
Post by: Phil on March 08, 2005, 04:17:38 PM
Yes friends, 2006.  There are a few diehards that want to visit Moab again next year.  8)

The Moab 2006 RV Forum Rally will be Friday, April 28, through Sunday, May 7, 2006 at the Portal RV Park in Moab, Utah.  As in past years, some people may arrive before Friday and some people may stay beyond Sunday.

The Portal RV Park has become so popular that we have to get the spaces blocked out in advance.  >:( 

If you have a space reserved for the 2005 rally, you have TWO WEEKS to confirm that same space for 2006.  If you want to arrive before April 28 or stay longer, you can tell them when you confirm your reservation.

If you want a different spot next year or if you don't have a spot this year and do want a spot next year, you will have to wait until after March 23, 2005 to get the reservation.  Annie will put you on a waiting list if you tell her you are with the RV Forum Rally group.

The phone number for Portal is 800-574-2028.

Good on ya Mate.  Sure glad you have planned ahead Phil.  Sam & I have phoned in our reservations at Portal for 2006 arriving 26 April through the 7th of May 2006.  Yep we are diehards that really enjoy Moab area.  We will be seeing you Sat at Russ's. :D :D

Ok folks now is the time to get those reservations in for next year. ;D ;D

Hi Phil

Do we confirm with you or with Portal's? Last year you took on the 2005 site allocations.

Tom,

Actually, last year most of the sites were repeat customers.  We did keep a list to make sure no one was lost in the process.  I will be happy to keep a list if you like.

OK thanks for clarification Phil. Now I'm concerned that I might not have a reservation  ???  I'll call Portal's.

I just spoke to Annie and although she doesn't have 2006 in her computer yet, she is recording reservations for later entry.

Post by: Ron on March 08, 2005, 05:37:31 PM
Tom,

Do call Portal Annie is there now.  I did mention that you would be calling and that I thought you would want site 14 again next year.
Title: Re: Moab 2006
Post by: Tom on March 08, 2005, 05:46:39 PM
That's why I'm confused Ron. The list that Phil had last year showed me in a full hookup site. I recall talking to Annie at the time and she said that they'd be mailing out confirmations around Feb or Mar. I'd better call.
Title: Re: Moab 2006
Post by: Tom on March 08, 2005, 05:58:11 PM
OK here's the story, and everything is just fine  :)

Last year we were in 3 different locations, including a couple of nights in the field, some nights with E & W, and the remainder full hookup. We were not repeat customers last year. Annie has us in site 14 for the duration this year (and now also 2006), which is a full hookup site.  ;D

BTW Ron, if you haven't yet noticed it, could you please check your PM for a msg from me. Thanks.
Title: Re: Moab 2006
Post by: Ron on March 08, 2005, 06:07:51 PM
Isn't site 14 a full hookup site.  Site 14 is on the end of the row we are on and I think they are all full hookup.  Glad it worked out right.

lol Phil, I had full faith in you until you posted your earlier message which I took to read that last year's repeat customers (from 2003) were the ones with reservations for this year. Ohj heck, this is all too confusing for me. Suffice to say all is OK. Thanks for taking care of us Phil!

BTW do you have the 2005 list? Would be good to post it here.

Sorry for the confusion, Tom.  The repeat customers were in attendance at 2004 and getting spots for 2005.  There were a few that missed 2004 and wanted to get on the list for this year.

I'll try to get a revised list for 2005.

Ron,

Any chance you can get us back into site #8?  Last year due to your mix up we got busted to site #25. We have had site #8 since the first rally at Moab. We plan to attend the 2006 rally but won't be there this year to reserve a full hookup site.

Maybe we will finally make it in 2006!   We caught the last year for Centermost and went on from there to scout the Moab campgrounds in behalf of Barbara, who was sort of the organizer at the time.  Never made it back to Moab while our gang was there, though. Missed it by only two weeks in 2002.[sigh]

You'd better get your reservation in now, or you'll have to use one of Ron or Bernie's portable hookups in the field. Do you have the number for Portal RV Park?

OTOH the field isn't that bad. We spent several nights there last year. See photo.

Not quite that far back, Phil. IIRC you had dinner with the DeMars and us  when we passed through SLC in early June 2002.  Still seems like an awful long time ago, though.

We called and made reservations for Moab for 2006 for the standard dates.  Annie said I could have had a site for this year but our plans don't allow us being there for 2005.

OK Jim, in about a year we will be working on the waiting list for 2007.   I was on the phone with Annie today trying to sort out the waiting list for 2006.  So far, there are at least 5 requests for 2006 sites by people who are not attending this years RV Forum Rally.  :(   Everyone will get a space so, don't get excited yet.  8)

Ron,

I doubt we will ever book the whole park.  We have twenty rigs on the list for 2005 and about a dozen so far for 2006.  I think the maximum we ever had at Moab was about 24 rigs.  It's a great area to spend some exploring time in.

We may just end up with all the full hookup sites thought and some of the partial hookup sites. :)

Gotta check with my brother and sister-in-law to see if I can get away for the 2006 Moab rally.  We sort of share the year here in Mesa now that we're all three retired.  Somebody has to feed their cat.  Then I'll call Portal after Wednesday.

Yes friends, 2006. There are a few diehards that want to visit Moab again next year. 8)

The Moab 2006 RV Forum Rally will be Friday, April 28, through Sunday, May 7, 2006 at the Portal RV Park in Moab, Utah. As in past years, some people may arrive before Friday and some people may stay beyond Sunday.

Phil,

If you are keeping an updated list for Moab 2006, you can add our name to that list. Please remove us from Site #25 and add us to Site #5. I confirmed this with Annie this morning. Anyone needing one of the two remaining sites with full hookups can now have Site #25.

Sorry we can't make it this year, but due to poor planning by our daughter on her wedding date, we must be in Rochester, NY on April 15th.

See you next year or before. :)

Regards.
