What section are you booking sites in? A, B, C, D, E, F, or O?

I should know by tomorrow if I can go, and I'll probably book a site of my own for my RV.

Were all trying to get on the same page so we can book camping sites next to each other.

I believe hotshot suggested we try for the F section. However, when you look at the sites online for the dates we want them, it shows the F section as fully booked. Hotshot did mention that their website has problems sometimes so I'll be contacting them later on today to verify. If the F section is indeed completely booked, then I believe the C section was our next choice.

We should have it all figured out by thhe weekend :-)

Skylar, are staying in Hotshots site or are you gonna camp with the cool people (me, Horacio, and 4xcorps)?
Ill stay wherever there's space! Though neighboring sites would be ideal I think.

Yeah I say we make reservations no later then tomorrow. Maybe qewbawl can check on the F section to see if those Friday reservations are a glitch in the site? F section C section, either way it don't matter. F section is cool though because they're large camp sites and theres a short cut to the Gatekeeper, and the rest of Calico right behind the campsite. Don't mention the short cut to the Camp Rangers though because they'll say it's not allowed.

I can lead on some of the trails if you want. If I'm in a group with alot of open diff vehicles, I tend to stay towards the rear of the pack and help the open diff guys out. If I'm in a group with alot of beefy jeeps, I go where ever and let them help me out We can switch off if you like. I've never been to any of these trails though, but I'm ok with whatever.

I just like to make sure that the person in front and in rear has a CB, and if the trail has tricky spots or obstacles with no bypasses, I like to make sure the front and rear guys have lockers so that there's always a locked jeep on either side of the pack. That way if there's an obstacle that an open diff is going to have trouble on, I can quickly pass them up before the obstacle and give them a tug if needed.

We could probably figure this out once we get there, but who has lockers and CB and who doesn't?
