    Anyone going? Just found out today I will be driving out there from Jersey for work, and I have never been.

    I'm trying to make it the Sunday, but not sure how long I can stay sense it's mothers day.

    Hopefully the mall crawler will be making the trip.

    I work for OK 4 Wheel Drive. Our main draw out there is the James Baroud and Alu-Cab products we import.

    what is it with them? the NW Overland Rally is on Father's day. I guess if you love your parents, you are just not worthy to be called an overlander.

    my own thing is I simply am leaving early on Sunday - but I think you're right. That said, it's the ultimate paradox. People who gear up to camp away from other people get together and camp right next to each other in a field.

    This is how I feel about campgrounds. You're jammed between strangers and everybody can hear each other. If I want some space and enjoy the outdoors I have to go home. Fine for staying near a natural wonder or other destination, but not the single thing I'd choose to do for a week.
