West River Westies... only days away!
« on: July 08, 2010, 09:19:48 PM »
OSJL is right near my work - maybe I'll venture there at lunch time. :)
I'm still partial to truck tube - if only they hadn't gone tubeless 20 years ago.  Inconsiderate truckers...or tire manufacturers.   :wink:

Only 8 miles from the campground (thanks google maps), but a 30ish minute drive.  I'm a big fan of waterfalls and this one looks amazing!

I think either Sat morning or Sunday after checkout would be the best time to go.  
If on Sat, go for the short drive/hike and let the air heat up a bit before going tubing.
If on Sunday it would be a cherry on the sunday (I made a pun!!!!).

When you get in, stop by for a Flying Dog and we'll make plans.

We (yes there are 5 of us in 1 bus!) will be arriving Friday later in the afternoon, 4ish and will be in "Honey" (name and color) 86 Vanagon.  I will put up our 'Earth' flag on top of the bus so you know who we are.

Gonna go home a pack the hard topper and rafts now!!!!

HOLY COW there are a ton of pics from this year!!!
How many bus's were there?  How many bus drivers and passengers do you think attended this year?  Baron do you have the tally in from the signin book?
My guess:

bus's: 53 (all years)
dogs: 7 (all sizes)
bus affiliated riders/attendees: .... hmmm .... let's see ...
2 riders per bus average is 106 .... then there's 30% with kids at an average of 2 kids per is 31.8 ... round up .... for a grand total of
138 furry freaky happy campers** (all years and sizes)
 
**Disclaimer: not all campers are furry, not all results typical, your actual mileage may vary, no VW's were harmed in the making of this event.

The one and only Red Baron said  "2011, July 15-17" on another forum located in Limbo.

Also, will the owners of "Daisy" the bus (R&L) please contact me.  You remember us, we all (R&L&J&M) weathered the thunderstorm last year, late at night under the EZup.
