Hi there, Neal and I planned on camping with you that weekend but with our big camping trip the following week it may be too much. So, WE will probably drive down to check out all the eggs and leave ours at home. Hope that will be ok, see everyone there.

Thanks to you who are responding. Alan will be updating the attendance list as soon as he has WiFi capability.

About Burney Falls Campground: 128 campsites are listed. However, 24 of those sites are rental cabins; and another 15 listed as “tent only”. Handicapped sites 1,2,3 have electricity. 89 are available for RV’s with driveways listed as “back in” 32 foot length (that shouldn’t be a problem for any of us!). All sites are listed as partial shade. Camping fees are $30/night. There is a $2/night discount for Senior Citizens 62+.

Don’t have an RV and still want to join us? The park has 24 rental cabins in 2 sizes: 1 room (18 ft) - $71.50/night; or 2 room (24 ft) - $93.50/night. For more info go to the park’s brochure website: www.parks.ca.gov/pages/455/files/McArthurPDF.pdf

About the falls: Burney Creek originates from the park's underground springs and flows to Lake Britton, getting larger along the way to the majestic falls. Created over a million years ago, the layered, porous basalt retains rainwater and snow melt, which forms a large underground reservoir. The water emerges at and above Burney Falls, where it flows at 100 million gallons every day.

WiFi service is available. Access for this service is available within a 150 foot range base of the*Snack Bar/Visitor Center.

I plan to arrive a couple days early. Several other people also plan to arrive early. So - - - come early, stay late!

- - Earl
Carol and I are unable to make it (as planned) to Burney. Too bad...we will be at the Oregon/Waterloo. We over-scheduled our fall plans, so had to give up something. Hope to see some of you in October.
Lawrence & Carol Walters

How are the roads?

We'll be coming in via Redding. Any idea how the roads are in terms of quality and grade along 299 East to 89?

Might it possibly be better to continue along I-5 toward Mt. Shasta and come Southeast on 89?

Highway 299 from Redding is a good road with good pavement - and possibly less curvy that 89 from Mount Shasta. I don't remember any severe grades. I would recommend that route unless you want some sight seeing. After you pass the town of Burney 299 junctions with 89. The park is about 4 or 5 miles from there. - - Earl

299 is a good road and your shortest route. If you go up I-5 to 89 you will have to go over a 5,000 pass between Mt. Shasta and McCloud. Also, some pretty serious road work is happening between McCloud and Burney. They may be finished by the gathering but I doubt it.

If you do go that way stop in and say "Hi" - I and my Fiber Stream will be Camp Hosting at Cattle Camp. That is a Forest Service Camp Ground just off 89 about ten miles East of McCloud.

Sadly, I have to change my "maybe" to a "no".

We are planning on attending if work does not get in the way. I hope to be able to arrive early. My parents may also be attending with their camper van.

looking forward to meeting new people and a fun time. We have had a cooler summer that has been pleasant. Hope it continues for this weekend.

Hi Steve and Karen. We will be looking forward to seeing you in September. Your parents are welcome also! The updated attendee roster will appear on page 1, post 1, of this thread.

We have three more weeks to wait. - - Earl

I am thinking about bringing a kayak to paddle on the lake. Is there anyone else attending that enjoys kayaking? I will also have golf clubs if we have time to use them.

I may have my golf clubs with me. Don't know if I'll bring the kayak though.

When will you be arriving??

Add 'The Casbah' and me to the list please

Greetings Everyone,

I'm looking forward to taking my newly decorated 17 ft. Burro now called 'The Casbah' to the gathering. I'm hoping there will be other women who might be flying solo who will decide to attend as well. I look forward to connecting with other tiny travel trailer kindred spirits.

Until then..."Make the journey worthy of the destination",

Laurie

It looks like we will be free the week of the gathering. We may arrive on Thursday. Will others be arriving early?

We do have to return Sunday.
