    New here. I am Caveman85's +1. As far as I know, I will definitely be there. I have been trying to make it the past two years but time off from work and family has been an issue.

    From what I see in the extended forecast, temperatures don't look to be too bad. Here's hoping nice hang and I can meet some folks!

    The toilets are vault toilets not flush toilets, but they seem well maintained.

    For a shower you can make a run to nearby Alexander springs 9 (6 miles away) or Juniper Springs (12 or so Miles away).

    Mrs. FLRider will also be making a visit! Gasp! Maybe the Mayans were right!

    Guys, I can't make it... :(

    am juggling client meetings with stained glass clients, and booked solid with kayak tours thru the rest of January, so am having to keep my nose to the grindstone here in Venice. Have a great time!

    Spent some time trying to make contact with the private campground about showers. The phone # is no longer a working #. May have closed down or changed hands. Will still stop in and check on the way up but may be left with the forest campgrounds.

    I'm bringing plenty of Baby-Wipes... Helps until I can get to a shower.

    Perhaps we could ask the rangers about being allowed to shower in Alexander Springs or either Juniper Springs? I remember when I went to Juniper Springs to shower with 4 in the car they allowed me access to the springs free of charge since we were only going to be there for half an hour at most and only really wanted to use the showers. This year, I have camped at Alexander Springs 4 times this year and am hoping they will remember me from previous trips. I am willing to bring a carload with me when I go.
