Default Airplane Count 5 weeks out!

Come on folks. The rooms are full ….so what! The campground has enough room for a 100 so make your plans, pack your tent because that is all you need. Food, water, firewood, hot showers, transport,...hey it's all done for you. We guarantee you the most RV'Easy, spouse friendly weekend you have ever spent with 200 of your best new RV friends.

Pack a bag, wear a smile, and bring a friend to the RV Mountain on October 11-13 or come early for the pre-party party work day

(This is that Tom Sawyer thing... we're having sooo much fun getting ready we really couldn't possibly be thinking about wanting to share the good time and let you come help ........ OK well maybe we can Seriously, we can take a few more on Thursday if anyone wants to come early. I think we have about 4 Thursday only rooms left. Looks like we will have about 50 at Mather Lodge for dinner Thursday


So hey! How about these folks. Sid, Kelli, Sandra, Roy all sitting around doing nothing but planning for a fun time on the Mountain! They're ready!



This is what everyone is flying.... and YEP... that's a SUPER 6 in the middle



This is actually what the preregistered have already committed and we usually get 50 more registrations in the week before if the 10 day forecast is anywhere close.
84 on the way but still short an RV3 to fill out the dance card!
Come on! Plan it …. be there! :-)



See you on the Mountain ! :--)

Default Room Update 3 open at the RCC

Have had three (3) room openings at the Rockefeller Conference Center and the wait list is now empty. Call or email to lock one down!

No time for long posts, we've been cutting grass, grooming the campground, and killing a few beers, bears, bees, and whatever else lives on the Mountain







Come on Campers and 3 Lodgers. Life is good with a couple hundred of your closest RV Buddies and Budettes

Email me or call if you want to lock one down. On Monday, our booking services are over and it's whoever, whatever, whenever

Get'em while you can!

See you on the Mountain!

Default Room Update

We just had two cancels and two more book so we are still net 3 rooms available at the Rockefeller Center. All rooms for Thursday are full at the RCC and at Mather as far as we know. Call or email if we can hook you up for a Friday/Saturday soriee.

Turning this booking thing all back to the RCC tomorrow so after that, it's whoever, whenever, and whatever

Campers have an open door, it's looking great! Jerry and the cook crew are ordering/stockpiling grub and fixing to put on a real show for breakfast and lunches.

Still looking like 20-30 airplanes on the ramp Thursday night and thinking about 55-60 for dinner at Mather. Total registrations for Friday / Saturday are sitting at 109 airplanes! Life is looking good at Petit Jean!

See you on the Mountain!

Default WEATHER UPDate

IT"S ON 😉 It?s looking like good for getting in Thursday, rain during the night, clearing by midday Friday and severe clear on Saturday and good return weather Sunday 😊 At least that is what the genie says looking at the picture below. Read previous post below, check the weather, make your own call, and be safe. Preferred alternate is Morrilton KBDQ because it?s only 20 minutes away by car but we can get to Russellville KRUE as well (it?s 45 minutes by car and they do have a car rental in Russellville)



See you on the Mountain!

Bill

Default Testing Mouse in the House

As happens before many an RV gathering, the appropriate rations are being baked for the trip. [Hey - I EARNED my callsign] Tail Number BINGO anyone?

The mouse in the house is testing the product to determine if it is good enough to ship 'Air Mail'.

We can't wait to see HUNDREDS of our best friends tomorrow! Many thanks to the folks that put in a lot of effort to make this event happen.
