It seems that we’re starting early this year. We’ve started discussing, dates, camping, and hotels...

Is it already time for the comms discussion? 😂

I'm a first timer. What's the percentage of campers vs. hotel people? Was planning on camping in our very-good-in-the-rain REI ground tent, but I don't want to be the only a**hole sleeping in the mud.

Also, I'm a card-carrying member of the HAM club. IH8CBs and GMRS radios are for families at Disneyland.

To me it looked like the majority of people were in ground tents or the tents on their roofs.

I think it's well mixed. Maybe just over half camping, the rest hotels. Silverton has very few hotel options so some folks end up in Ouray.

Camping is pretty well mixed with campers, RTT, in car sleepers (biased shoutout to the SS1!) and ground tents. You won't stick out for being on the ground, but it does get wet and muddy so there are advantages to being up one way or another.

Is there any place near that has RV hookups? I’d settle just for an elec hookup to keep the wife sane.

are there tickets or are people just booking accommodations right now?
Accomodations right now. There's lots of options but all have some give and take as well as small inventory. It's pretty traditional for everyone to get their situation figured out beforehand.

thanks for the heads up! I guess i'll start figuring things out. Will there be enough tickets for everyone that wants to go? I remember trying to get tickets before and was unable to
