Default California Hi-Lo Club First Campout!

Howdy California Campers!

Garry and I have been e-mailing each other the last several weeks and have come up with a proposal for our first campout, keeping in mind the locations of those who had previously expressed interest. We think we found a place that is a fair driving distance for all.

Where: 49er RV Ranch in Columbia, CA. For those not familiar with it, the park is in the heart of Gold Country in Tuolumne County, just north of Sonora. I have never stayed there but it sounds pretty good! There are many attractions, state parks, etc. to visit that are very close to the RV park, and it is an easy day trip to Yosemite for those interested. Check out the park website to learn more. Be sure to play the little video Huell Howser did about the park!

49er Ranch RV Park: RV Campground and Resort Columbia CA

When: October 19-23. This is a Monday-Thursday nights, ending on Friday morning. I have already contacted the park and they can accommodate a small group for these dates.

I don't think we will be large enough to be considered an official group (minimum 8 rigs) so reservations will need to be made on an individual basis but I can contact them and see if they can get us all fairly close together once I know who is interested. This is a pretty highly-rated Good Sam park with full hook-ups so there are several types of discounts available off the regular rate. There is also a discount coupon for $20 off the first night for first-time visitors that you can print out:

If you think you can make it, either post a message or send me or Garry a private message. You can also e-mail me. Let me know if you need my e-mail address. I'd like to get at least two other commitments before proceeding. We are still open to suggestions but time is running short. Hope ya'll can make it!

Thanks,

Hi Mossy,

Sorry to hear that you won't be able to make it! Since it is a smaller campground, we thought it would be less impacted if we met during the week, realizing that some folks may need to work but hoping they might be able to attend anyway. I was very interested in meeting you and seeing your rig but understand if you can't make it.

The good news is, this is only the first campout so I'm hoping you can make it in the future! I'd like to talk to everyone who attends about future get-togethers so perhaps we can incorporate a weekend in the next one.

Great, John! I just went ahead and made my reservation as well. I also got the group rate of $40. The gal said she would try and put us as close together as possible. FYI, the cancellation fee is $10 if made outside of 48 hours and one nights camping ($40) if made within 48 hours of arrival time. Be sure to tell them to apply the $20 coupon off the first night's stay if you have never camped there before.

Are you leaving on the 22nd or 23rd? Would you mind sending me your contact info (cell # and e-mail address) via a PM? I've started a contact list for interested members which I plan on sharing with everyone once I have their permission.

Looking forward to meeting you as well!

Thanks,

I was unable to edit the original post for some reason but please note that I meant to say the dates for the campout will be October 19-23, leaving on the morning of the 23rd. My apologies for the confusion!
