Yeah camping. I am changing contracts at work so hopefully I will be able to make it. I will cancel as soon and possible if works fouls my life once again.

There's some good Tent areas towards the back of the site.

You can walk between sites #10 and #12 through the trees.

Site #12

I'll be parked and set-up at this site.

There's also some nice tent areas toward the back of this site as well.
Cottonwood Creek runs behind sites 10 and 12 down in the gully.

Elevation and Coordinates for this Site.

Since there doesn't seem to be as much interest in joining, I'm most likely going to cancel the reservation for site #11, and get a refund for the third site.

We also checked out the Community Center in Town.

The public Restrooms. Shower is toward the back. Door is lockable.
There is a small changing-area behind the door.

There does not appear to be any way of adjusting the water temperature.
According to the sign, it gets Hot!

We had lunch in Downtown Buena Vista at "Crave"
I can recommend!
Pizza was excellent!

I plan on being there along with my friend Jeff from California, I believe Tenere Guy is probably also coming but we will be staying in motels that we haven’t booked yet.

I'll add you guys to the "Head-Count" list.

If anyone else is planning on coming, or even if you think you might want to but are not decided yet, please add your name to the list!

First off, thank you SkunkWorks for all the work you’ve put into this trip.

Can you add us to the possible attending? Fairly certain we will make the trip just depends on work.

Won't make this gathering as I have a prior commitment. I will be making a return trip to the South Fork area in Sept so I appreciate the GPS tracks. Looks like a great time!

I put the GPS coordinates in my GPS and it seems to have worked, this was the first time I ever tried that, thanks for posting them should make it pretty easy to locate exactly where your at.
