Eddie: I don't know if I oughta go sailin' down no hill with nothin' between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.
Clark: Do you really think it matters

BTW - Isn't this where we came in last year?

That's was exactly the type reply I was hoping for. A thought out answer. I've been mulling over the situation and visiting Yellowstone on our way to Idaho was one of our scenarios and depending on the info you replied with on CA that was another scenario. I, like you, am concerned about the weather if we wait to late so heading south immediately following GC sounds logical.
CA is definitely on our bucket list, Pacific Highway in toad a must!
2015 is our West Coast trip. We will try as hard as we can to plan on attending any GC out that-a-way. We have done the West Coast before. First time was with a 40' 5th wheel and went from point of start, San Diego, up to Whidbey Island, WA. We traveled Hwy 101 to Crescent City, CA then The 5 to Eugene, OR, and on up to Whidbey. We mainly stayed at Military CG's. There are many civilian CG's along the way. Anyone interested PM (emial) me with questions and I'll try answering them. 2016 wil be our East Coast trip again. We try to alternate destinations, but it really is the journey that is important.


We'll attend the GC in April, then who knows from there. Maybe come back home and wait until May to head on out. Maybe just head on out. Who knows. (Earlene most likely)

When you speak of Rainbow's End, are you speaking of Livingston, TX? That's only 112 miles from us. Today Earlene is making gumbo. So yummmy. Door is open.

Comin' back East in May.
Might pass in the night!

That was interesting. And to think, he got $10,800 for 900 hours of work and the owners sold it for $995,000+. 0 for 90

Don,

I know we all have different priorities in rainbow riding, but being close to city life with all it's noise and bustle is not on my list. I don't see the proximity of stores as a need for a week or two. I always stop and stock up at Wamart and Costco before heading out into the boonies.

I'm not sure what season(s) it might happen, but I've been warned that being too close to the salt lake is a problem due to smells and mosquitos.

Southern Utah has many amazing sights. Zion National Park is not terribly far from Bryce Canyon, but is at a lower elevation. That's just one of many options.

When I think of a GC venue I like the idea of someplace with trees and lots of peace and quiet for rowdy Mutants to disrupt. To be honest, I was disappointed by the pictures of the Salt Lake campground. It looks a bit like a parking lot. But, that's just my opinion and this is a group decision.

I just stumbled across this book, in the process of reading. This guy was definitely a mutant! The prose is intricate, but stick with it you will be rewarded!
