Smile Count me in!

I'll be in the area and I'd loved to join in on July 26 and 27th! Me and my little Casita "The Dumpling"!

Cottomwood Pass

I stayed at the camping site last week and took the opportunity to drive up to Cottonwood Pass. Whoa! The drive from BV to the summit is open, but the west side down is closed through 2017 and probably into 2018. They are widening the road and will asphalt the surface all the way down, instead of the gravel road as now.

In 2018, they will then resurface the eastern half, from BV to the summit. It will be nice when finished, but those millions who drive up for the Fall colors of the aspen among the pine trees will be really upset! When finished, the traffic will probably be backed up clear into BV each Fall!

They also just finished putting new asphalt on Hwy 24 through BV. They have been milking that project since last summer. They have some of the slowest moving equipment I have seen. You could watch them work from the same restaurant spot as you could last summer.

And there were actually 6 guys at the back of a cement truck waiting for the cement to come down the shoot to fix a section of sidewalk. Probably two actual workers, but a "supervisor" from the city, county and state dept, and of course the union guy.

See you in July,
Jim

Carmen,

The three best dispersed camping sites on the west side of Guenella Pass have been eliminated. They resurfaced the entire road from Grant 10 miles up to the last sites just before the hairpin turns start. There are now road barriers in those spots so no one can get to them.

There are still the Forest Service campgrounds on the closer to Grant, and also at the top of Hoosier Pass. I prefer the one on the left side, across from the trail head for viewing the Fall colors up and down the valley. It's difficult to imagine how congested the parking gets up there then in that wide open area.

Jim

It looks like we will be on the eastbound portion of our journey and should be passing through this part of the US during the rally time (closer to the 27/28/29 July time.) We would love to stop in for a night, if the timing works out. We have a 17.5' 89 Bigfoot Gaucho and would love to meet up with other FG folks.

Hi Jim and Kathy,

Yes, that sure is the place. It's amazing what can be found and then see the actual spot on Google Maps. Look forward to seeing you there.

Jim

I currently own an R-Pod, which is fiberglass skinned. HaHa. But I have an Escape on order, due in November. I'd like to join in your outing. Perhaps on Tuesday 7/25.

You're almost one of the family! Dunno, Jim, should we make Jeff park on the other side of the road? Just kidding.

Hi Jeff,

Well, as a FG wana-be, we can let it slide this time providing you meet some provisionary terms: Have to arrive after dark and leave before sun up, must post a simulated Scamp or Casita decal on the side of your camper, and are responsible for bringing some of those Mexican beers Mike is hoping someone will bring!! Did I miss anything???

Btw, I will be in the 13’ Scamp that has the awnings on it. See pics.

There may or may not be others around when you arrive as they may be out hiking, biking or fishing or many other things. Just pick out a site, set up and others are bound to show up eventually, usually closer to evening and we can meet and greet then.

Jim

It's looks like the swiss army knife of awnings! I feel so inadequate...

Kay,

You saw humor in it and responded with wit. I will see my Scamp in a new way every time all the awnings are set up.

Only those who have seldom or never had an original idea, interesting question, new insight, or better understanding of something, and try to deal with it through negative comments about others need to feel inadequate.

Now how am I going to get that image out of my head!
