Bob, can you connect me with Rick or let me know which cabin number? I will call Monday and get that. You can also text me. I am going to PM you my cell. BTW will have my J10 with the side steps on it there :)

Bob, if you can reach out to Rick please don't have him cancel the cabin. I just called Ouray and they said they can change the name and I can just pay him. Please connect Rick and I. I PM'd you my cell number last night. Please forward to Rick if possible. Thanks!!

Site 48

Postby fulsizjeep » Sat Jul 07, 2018 3:54 am

Site 48 is available for Thursday and Friday, July 19 and 20. Something else came up and we took it. If you want to get site 48, contact me by PM or email (401s <at> jubileejeeps.org) to arrange handing it off. If nobody gets it by mid-day July 12, I will cancel the reservation.

Down to the wire but I finally scored the time off work. I'll be in site 44 that I optimistically reserved on my way out last year. Most likely I will be rolling solo this year.

You're gonna leave your wife and another newborn in a Grand Junction hospital and show up for the raffle again? :lol:

My family wasn't able to come last year, but I'll have my ladies with me this year. :)

Not this trip. Little guy still doesn’t travel well so Megan suggested I go by myself. Driving across the desert is also less stressful without wife and especially kids in tow.

Getting stoked for this year now. Still trying to figure out the little details of bringing down two fsj's, dualsport bike, f350 and the camper. Probably going to make a couple trips back and forth from my house.

Both fires are likely to smolder until winter moisture. Moisture the last couple days has helped hold down activity. Fires are 50% contained and they are expecting full containment July 31. Last I heard was the far end of CR 124 in La Plata Canyon is closed or restricted because the fire zone now reaches Kennebec Pass. This is in the La Plata mountains between us and Durango. NOAA is expecting true monsoon activity in the area Wed or Thu. The moisture the last few days is from a front passing the area and it appears to be priming the monsoons for us. We just got hammered with wind, lightning, rain and pea size hail from a cell that passed over from the mountains. Flash flood kind of shyte.

Anyone have an extra bit of space in their campsite for a little red XJ?
I ""might"" be able to drive out there, and sleep in my XJ.

So we were set to travel Monday morning arriving Monday evening. Our obligation on Sunday has changed and we can travel now on Sunday. I called the KOA to see if I could bump my reservation up one day, however there is someone arriving Sunday morning the 15th and leaving Monday the 16th for Site 47E, which my reservation starts on Monday. Question is, is this 1-day reservation anyone here? Or is it someone un-related to the FSJ group? Was hoping to get there for the Monday morning breakfast fiasco!
