It will be good to see you guys! Glad you made it in.

I took some vacation time, and Robert & I will arrive on Thursday and leave on Monday. Bob & Roger will be with us on Saturday and Sunday only. They have modified their Suburban for car camping in a similar way I did my Honda Odyssey.

Hey, Frederick and Robert. We have something else in common besides the orphan cats.

We also once modified our Odyssey for bus camping too! Tao bought a bunch of plastic boxes and filled them with the tools he needed to do an equipment installation in Reno. He folded the hatch, removed the back seat, and put the boxes inside. He put a board over the boxes and an old mattress from a sofabed over that and, viola, instant camper!

In fact, that trip is why we decided to buy a trailer....my back still hurts!

I think factory sofa-bed mattresses are made to discourage quests from staying very long.

I've never been before (since I've only had a trailer for a few months), so I don't know the routine...are there firepits and do people have individual fires or is there just one or two bigger campfires? I have wood I can bring.

So you So. Cal. folks what does Lake Casitas look like. By that I mean, in danger of any of the 12 fires from Santa Barbara south?

CNN just showed their fire symbols on a map and there were at least a 1/2 dozen between SB and Malibu. Guess where Ventura and Lake Casitas are.....right there.

I've been keeping tabs on Lake Casitas. I just phoned again.

As of now - no problem at all at Lake Casitas... It's barely breezy there at this time but might pick up.

There is absolutetly no problem getting out of the campground after they lock the gate. You can always get out ....

I also just received a cancellation for Space 12... They have not cancelled the space yet at Lake Casitas ... If you are interested in this space, email Demil direct in this thread to work out getting the space with him, or you can email me and I will see if I can help.

Lori & I, due to a family emergency, will not be able to attend this year. We will be at the Stanford Medical Center. So sorry, we will miss you all.

Bass-48 is available.

Here's a map. Lake Casitas is the blue body of water where it says Oak View.

Hopefully by Friday travel down 5 will not be a problem- hard to say at this point. Right now the problem is high winds.

Winds are suppose to start calming down by tomorrow. It's already 75% better where we live.

Talking

Roger Has a brand new client (He's a home health aid) and he and Bob won't be joining us. Roger will have to work for 48 hours from Friday thru Sunday. He tried to swap duties for that weekend, but couldn't. As long as we can get through, we are still comming on Thursday.

Yep, be careful of the winds! I just did a tug I would NEVER do unless it was an emergency, in 70+ MPH winds.

My drivers seat will never be the same.

So sorry you won't be there, Mike and Lori. I had looked forward to seeing you.

Gina, glad you got out okay. Where are you staying? Are you going to work and all?

What is our best route from the Fresno area? Down 5 and then...? I've never been that direction AT ALL.

I feel for the people affected by the fire. With people losing their homes and possessions, I feel a bit guilty in hoping that our weekend will stay intact.

Looking forward to seeing/meeting you all!

It is 5 and I think, 126? Right now 5 is a problem, though, so we may have to rethink. I've been there once, tried a back way, and it took hours extra, so don't want to do that if we can help it. Next best is probably go to San Luis Obispo and then down 101 from there, that is a bit over an hour longer for me, probably the same for you. I'm not sure how the road is that way, though, can someone fill us in?
