Just a hint for everyone attending. If you choose to participate in the dutch oven sessions, you will have something to bring to the potluck just after the classes. More people learning dutch oven cooking, more to add to the potluck table. Yumm!

Is anyone interested in weighing your trailer?
I just got home from The Long, Long Trailer Trip.

I will bring my scales, and can weigh at your site. The procedure will be:
  1. You hitch up to your tow vehicle, releasing stabilizers and chocks
  2. I place the scales just in front of your trailer's wheels
  3. you drive onto the scales (about 1 foot forward)
  4. I record the wheel (axle) weights

  5. You back off to your original position, Chock your tires, and Un-Hitch
  6. you level up, but DO NOT set up stabilizers
  7. I place a scale under the tongue coupler
  8. You raise the tongue jack so the coupler is on my scale
  9. I record the tongue weight
    Click image for larger version

  10. you lower the tongue jack, and reset stabilizers
  11. I remove my scales
For those of you with 5th Wheel trailers, I will do step #7 [b]in the bed of your pick-up truck, just behind your hitch.

Carol & Jim,

Shirley and I have decided to take a trip to the North West this October and are going to attend the NOG on Oct 9-11. We plan to then head South and if dates work out, perhaps we can stop by the Lake Casitas Rally for a visit. We'll see what happens. It would be nice to see everyone there, too.

BTW, I'm going to be doing some serious Mod's on the Liberty before the trip and hope to get even more ideas on my thread I started last night.

Later,

K & S

That's great Keith. We'd love to have you come by - better still, to spend a night or more. It's been too long since we were last together. We are now expecting 38 trailers to be at the rally and tons of nice, fun people.

Keep the Lake Casitas phone number handy in case you have time to join us.
(805) 649 1122
Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 3:00pm. Ask for BASS campground.


Say hi to Shirley for us.

Hi Pat and Arleen

A couple of weeks ago I phoned and they had about 8 spaces left. Since then, we have had 3 that joined. I'm guessing that there are a few left.

The best thing to do is call them .. ask exactly what spaces are left and snag one.. We want you to join us and the spaces are almost gone.

To make this easy for you:

Monday - Friday 8:00 am - 3:00pm. Ask for BASS campground.
phone (805) 649 1122...... (You can also use Skype with this number)

They have one phone line – sometimes it's a problem... the best way to reach them is to start dialing and when you get the busy signal, just hit redial, and keep redialing until they answer or you get the answer machine - hang on and someone will answer......

Hi, We are newbies and would really like to attend the Lake Casitas event. I tried to make reservations on line yesterday, and today got a message that the reservation was refused. A phone call today revealed that the entire B campground is booked, so I reserved a spot in E. Is there a way that I can find out if there are any cancellations within this group so that I could move over to B?? The man on the phone said that I would just have to call each day! Thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Martha

I'm really happy that you went ahead and reserved a space in E. We will start a waiting list and put your name on it... If a space comes up, we'll let you know.

However, if it were me - I would try calling again ... once a day would be great but at least once a week - there will be cancellations and hopefully none of our fiberglass gang. We have 39 trailers (spaces) reserved at Lake Casitas and I was told there was one more still available .. but it looks like it is filled, I hope it wasn't taken by someone outside our group.

Watch for my email.
Carol
