My BAD... he (Scott) was the jerk who murdered his wife, Laci Peterson, down in Modesto a number of years ago. He did it Christmas or Christmas eve. She was close to term with their first child. Jerk. He was schtupping some chick and decided that murder was better than divorce. Jerk. A true psychopath. Oh, and a Jerk.

have to display my ignorance. don't know who ''THE Scott Peterson" is.

mine was not prominent, but not ordinary either. he and Norma, his wife, owned several pieces of property that the state of california, in it's infinite wisdom, decided that it needed more.

You are right, Alan! The proposed dates are September 17-19. Reservations can then be made on March 1.

I like Burney Falls also. The campground is bigger and might be easier to get reservations. I haven't made reservations in the State Park System. Does anyone know if we can make specific site reservations or is it potluck according to where they have room?

More discussions are welcome - - - Earl

AND for our Northern Calif Scampers, I ran a Mapqest from Arcata to Burney - 4 hours (3:56) / 195 miles.

And from Galt, 4 hours, 238 miles


So, in THAT respect it is actually the same. Go Figger.

Hi all-

My wife and I'd like to weigh in with a vote for Burney Falls. I'm familiar with the area as I have relatives in the Redding area. There's wonderful fishing, hiking, boating, swimming and sightseeing all around. The campground is open and well laid-out. It's no more than 1 1/2 hours from Redding on good highway, and it's gorgeous.

I was planning a trip to the Dakotas but the hostess for that event hasn't spoke up.

I just put Burney Falls on my calendar for Sept 16-19. I haven't been there for years. It's an area that I've been meaning to explore once again, as well as the rest of Northeastern CA. I plan to go up Highway 88 to the junction of Highway 89 at Hope Valley then around Lake Tahoe and continue north on 89 and so forth. I plan to go as far Tule Lake to visit the Lava Tubes.

I LOVE your route. From Galt I would have just done good old boring I-5, BUT - I love the idead of taking a really back roads approach.

Michele and I visited the lava tubes some years ago. Really COOL... fascinating AND actually "cool" inside.

Alan,

I'm not a freeway kind of gal.
I do most anything to avoid them as well as other major highways.

Now that you are "retired" you need to get out of the freeway mindset. There is no longer any reason to hot foot it to anywhere. Stop and smell the roses, often

Don't try to do everything this year. Spread it out and go slow.

On my way to Bandon for the gathering in July I stayed at an RV park - Hiouchi - just 4 miles north and 5 miles east of Crescent City. It was a large beautiful grassy site with hookups. I don't think it was too expensive considering State Parks are probably $30 now. One of the state parks was adjacent to this RV park.
That would be Jedediah Smith State Park on the Smith River on highway 199 east of Crescent City about 1/2 hour. Just far enough from the coast to escape the fog. Beautiful place, camp sites surrounded by trees or shubbery, fairly private, nicde swimming beach, fishing.

Ellen, someone mentioned Boise Creek which is a USFS campground, (I'm sure the USFS campground will be cheaper than the CA state parks), no hookups but there is water and also bathrooms. Close to the Trinity River and fishing, swimming, rafting, Bigfoot, Hoopa casino, beautiful weather. Fall preferably 'cause of the heat during the summer. Nice campground, easy access, one hour east of Eureka and two hours west of Redding, not too crowded also has a host during the season. Campground gate locked during off season. Never seems to be too crowded. Might be able to work with the Ranger at the Lower Trinity Ranger Station in Willow Creek. Probably has 20-30 camping spots (just a guess about that).

Marg -

The ONLY issue I would have is the policy of no reservations. It is only $10 a night, BUT there are only 17 spots.
If the USFS would be willing to do some sort of reservation for a group, then I think it could work. Without a reserved spot, though, my [b]personal opinion is that it would not work for a gathering. But, then, I am always willing to do whatever the "group" wants.

Hi Earl:

Please, count us in. We're excited! All of the three proposed sites seem great. We are familiar with Hendy Woods and think it is great. Very scenic. Centered around the Navarro River. Also, it is close to the Sonoma Coast and Napa and Sonoma wine regions, making it handy for adding other stops on the way to or from the gathering.
