    I think aslong as whoever gets there on Friday can try to get 2-3 spaces next to each other for getting together as a group for dinner, we should be OK.

    The campground is small so if we have to spread out to accomodate everyone I don't see it being a big deal to walk around to see poeople like in a hammock trailer park!

    Anybody have flag making skills?

    I'm thinking a california flag with the bear in a hammock instead of walking

    I will re-post this whole thing as updates come in

    READ THIS BEFORE LEAVING YOUR HOUSE TO COME UP


    Looks like this is actually happening!


    Dates: Friday, March 15th through Sunday March 17th with most attendees arriving Saturday

    ************************************************** ************************************************** *************************

    Items to bring:

    1) Hammock Rig

    2) Cash for camping fees (I would suggest $30 or so)

    3) Drinking Water!!! The campground is listed as having potable water but my buddy and I got sick from it last time.

    4) At least one bundle of firewood, per person for each night staying. I'm bringing two to be safe. I love a fire.

    5) Potluck Dish of some sort for Saturday dinner

    6) Toilet paper. There are supplied vault toilets but it is better to be safe than rely on the forestry service.

    7) Other Camping Gear you think others would benefit by seeing.

    Obvious stuff like food/water/clothes, etc...

    ************************************************** ************************************************** *************************

    People arriving Friday:

    From what I saw, It looks like we should try to make our main "base of operations" at sites 37, 38, and 39. They are close together, have (relatively) a good amount of trees, and are back in their own corner. If they are available when you get there, snag them!

    Adjacent to that area are sites 21-25 (we stayed at 24 this weekend) which may be a good backup plan (25 might be a good "base of operations" as well).

    Worst case scenario is that we might have to spread out. But the campground is small enough that we could surely just walk to eachother's sites to check them out.

    Reservations are not allowed so a lot of this will depend on who gets there on Friday. Whoever gets there should park at the different sites we want and set up at least one person per site on Friday night to lay claim to them. There is an area near site 39 (behind the cattle gate) where cell phone service works. I would think whoever sets up on Friday should use that access to post the sites we will meet at here.

    The site only allows two vehicles per site, so anybody that wants to carpool would be helping us all out. If people want to meet at my place on Saturday morning and leave vehicles there to carpool, that would be fine with me. I live in Lake Elsinore in a safe neighborhood (at the bottom of the hill where the campsite is).

    Sites are $20 per night, attendees will reimburse those that were there to lay claim to the sites on Friday. If there are issues with this I will cover the difference.

    ************************************************** ************************************************** *************************

    Weather and Warmth:

    The campground is at 3,400 feet elevation.

    I was there a month ago and it was warm during the day and got down to about 35 at night. We stayed up until 1, burned through 4 bundles of wood (2 hard and two soft) and had enough for breakfast the next day. I would think people that stay up late will need around 5-6 bundles of soft wood per fire ring (like most of what you buy at the store).

    ************************************************** ************************************************** *************************

    Directions:

    GPS: 33.652778, -117.449722


    From the 15:

    Take Exit 77 to get on to Highway 74
    Head West (Towards the lake)
    Right on Collier (light)
    Left on Riverside Dr (light)
    Pass the lake
    Riverside Drive curves to the left and becomes Grand
    Turn Rght on Ortega Highway 74 up the mountain
    Go up the hill to just a mile or two past the crest
    Get off the highway by making a right at No. Main Divide road
    No. Main Divide road is just before a campground on the right
    Take the paved road in the middle (DO NOT GO TO THE SITE RIGHT BY THE HIGHWAY)
    You will go about 15 minutes back and likely feel like you have gone too far.
    Look for potholes and narrow roads.
    Follow Signs to Blue Jay


    From the 5:

    Take Exit 82 to get on to Highway 74
    Head East (Into the Mountains) for about 23 miles
    Make a left on to No. Main Divide road just after the fire station (on the right)
    No. Main Divide road is just after a campground on the left
    Take the paved road in the middle (DO NOT GO TO THE SITE RIGHT BY THE HIGHWAY)
    You will go about 15 minutes back and likely feel like you have gone too far.
    Look for potholes and narrow roads.
    Follow Signs to Blue Jay



    Please let me know if I should change anything:

    Does anyone have safety cutters they could bring? I don't have one to open the tops of beer cans I will be bringing open top cans for the demo but if you plan on bringing your own, you may want to bring the cutters to open

    Looking forward to this weekend!
