You might want to start getting your reservations in. As it stands the event is May 2nd through 4th. We'll be stationed @ Serrano again and I've already made reservations for sites 67 through 70. Y'all might wanna start working on filling up the rest of that loop.

Reservation page (http://www.recreation.gov/campgroundSearchResult.do?topTabIndex=CampingSpot) . Search for Serrano.

The reservation company is using old information. With all the snow they got over the weekend the fire level is back down to low and fires are allowed in campgrounds.

I booked #44

If you don't want to camp or prefer a cabin or room, give JJ a call at Big Bear Mtn Resort Rentals.

The web address is www.bigbear1.com.

The can get you a room, a small cabin, or a big cabin. JJ is a great gal to work with and has helped many of us with accomodations. I will call her tomorrow and see if there is some kind of code for the group to possibly get a discount.

I've got a cabin in Green Valley Lake, just down the road from the rock garden @ Holcomb Creek. Once I'm able to say I'm attending with 100% certainty (meaning I was able to get an 8.25 and gears), I will leave a post to see if anyone wants to stay at the cabin instead of camping. I would only have room for a couple people though; it's a tiny A-frame and my GF + her 2 kids may be coming, not sure yet. If they don't come, I can probably take ~5 ppl.

You must keep forgetting about what campground we will be at. Hell, we can't turn car stereos up there.....

Yes, it's a campground. They have about a 50 foot driveway with a campsite.

Marshal, its no big deal to pull in then unhook your Jeep/trailer then back into your spot. If there is an issue with your trailer I have plenty of room at my cabin to park it.
