Thom in case your unaware, very near the park there is a remote control air field (just up the road from the old ice cream store) that on week-ends normally has lots of action. Some pretty cool planes and Helicopters. Your trucks would fit right in there.

i did read about the airfield somewhere in here
Sounds fun! I used to build and fly RC Slope/Pylon-racing gliders off the cliffs just south of San Francisco. What a blast.





It's all good till you have a mid-air with a competitor and you both go down in the waves ~100 feet below

And well...Our van is 18ft
And the Parkliner is 15ft...

So i'm gonna have to do some fancy finagling to get'em both in the space!

park the trailer and disconnect and park the van across the front of the site.

That might just be the ticket!
But didn't want to seem like we were creating a little No Trespassing Zone...You all are welcome to take a look around the rigs

Its a pretty common problem in the A loop area due to many of the sites being fairly short - if your trailer is narrow enough you can put the trailer off enough to one side to allow the backing in of the tug in partly beside it. Be warned though whatever you do dont park on any of the grass area around your site - the rangers & camp hosts there are vigilant on watching for that!

Thom, if you have enough rear clearance, just back up until the tires on the trailer bump the "curb" that may be enough to give you a couple of extra feet. I think they measure the sites from street to that curb. May be worth checking out.

Yeah for you Roger. Sorry Brian and Maria can't join us tho... maybe next time.

accrete, here's the lowdown on flying around the park,
RC plane guy

Have you tried the slopes in south eastern Washington, around the Tri-Cities? Places like Eagle Butte and Kiona?

thx for sharing the RC Plane Guy link, it's a fun read.
Nope...i haven't been flying since about mid 1980's ,(
Got into Manta Landsailers and now on the coast Sport Kites.
Maybe sometime i'll check the hobby out again.

Sad to say we're not going to make it. I just have too much pre-op stuff to take care of, and a nasty flu bug has laid us up for the past 10 days, so our energy levels are pretty low. I will cancel our booking (A 26) on Friday, April 19, at about noon, Hope that works a hopeful out there.
cheers for now
Ian

Oh MAN. We're going to miss you guys. Heal soon and we'll catch up with you later. BTW: I have a kinda list of folks that are interested in the site, I'll pass that info along to them.
