We will be there if, and only if conditions improve. No way are we going into a situation like the present one!

Conditions should be good.. Santa Clarita is now totally fire free.

Stevenson Ranch is on 5 and the fire is still going there. 126 is the road we need to go to lake Casitas. It's been closed to incoming traffic, but outgoing has been OK. Winds are gone in our area today...

Everything is looking up and we are planning to leave Thursday and hit the road for a good time at Lake Casitas...... hopefully we see everyone there.

We'll be there Friday! I'm so looking forward to seeing everyone!

Not a thing I can do about the fires and the Lake Casitas area is not involved.

I'm glad everything is OK. I didn't realize that Sand Canyon got involved till this morning.

Do we know anything about Gina's house. That area up by Lake Arrowhead looks like it is totally out of control. At least she is in a safe place.

Gina, if you see this --- check in often, if you can. We are thinking and praying for you and anyone else in danger and/ or whose property is at risk.

Well folks, I hate to do this but I'm going to cancel.

I've been dealing with a bronchical problem that's not going away in the next few days. I just called Ventura City Offices regarding smoke. The lady told me that she doesn't have a bronchical problem and the smoke is bothering her. She also said that looking out to the ocean it is usually very clear but with the smoke around it's terribly hazy. Oh, she also said she'd heard there's a fire up near Santa Barbara not sure where but maybe some of the smoke is coming from it.

I said I think I'll not come and she said "that might be a smart move", considering my current situation.

Bobbie, Yes going 101 is definitely and hour or so longer, which also doesn't thrill me, with my current health situation. It's taken me close to 10 hours to go from Santa Maria to Sonora and Lake Casitas has to be another hour and half down from Santa Maria.

Sorry Joy we'll miss you.

I just phoned Lake Casitas - Just a little bit of smoke - no fires in area.. Nice temperature...

By Thursday I'm thinking, everything will make Lake Casitas a great place to be.

By the way .... The campgrounds are pretty full...

No spaces available in BASS campground.

One space available in EGRET.

2 spaces available in F campground.

I emailed the Rally information to all of you. Please print it out to take with you.

If you didn't receive it, I will have a few copies at the rally.


We're looking forward to seeing all of you.
Carol

I couldn't open your attachment. What did it say? We are heading for Pismo Beach tomorrow, since we made arrangements to be away from home. If conditions improve substantially, we will go on down to Lake Casitas. Otherwise, we will spend the weekend further north. We hope everyone is OK!

Thats an issue for me, too, because I have asthma, but I'm going to wait a bit and see. If the wind changes and starts to come from the west it will clear up quickly.

I've been feeling so crummy that I'm really not ready for this trip. One day it feels like a cold coming on then the next sort like a flu. Very tired and energy level is low.


My reservation is for B52 Thursday through Sunday, out on Monday.

I plan to call at 8:30am tomorrow to cancel.

Would some or all who are going to arrive Thursday let us have their phone numbers so we can call and check out the smoke situation? It looks much more promising now with the wind changing but things could change fast again.

Bobbie, I am doing much better today than I was yesterday, and I am right smack dab in the middle of where all the smoke is laying in.

The weather is cooling down, and when I was walking the pups this morning, I swear I felt a tad bit of moisture.. you should be OK.

I live near Lake Casitas (Ventura, about 15 miles way) and we have not been affected by the fires other than smoke and ashes (which are pretty light today; barely noticible). I have a friend who lives about 4 miles from Lake Casitas and this morning she said it is not as smoky in Ojai (very near to Lake Casitas) as it is here, so it should be fine by this weekend. Also, the fires around this area have been 100% contained so won't be moving anywhere now (there was a big fire visible from Lake Casitas Sept. 2006 so I think that brush has all been burned away, and that would be some ground the Piru fire would have had to traverse to get anywhere near the lake).

I have been looking for a Fiberglass RV since May or so, but haven't found the perfect one yet (16' Scamp or Bigfoot 17 with a side bathroom/shower combination and the bunk option). Still, would it be OK if I came out with my 4 year old to admire your campers and say hello on Saturday?
