Re: Meet and Greet at Valley of Fire, October 7-9,2011

So are the people who are going to wearing the red SMB shirts, going to end up like the red-shirted Star Trek security detail? You know, the one who always get killed off within 30 seconds of setting foot on some strange, new planet?

Re: Meet and Greet at Valley of Fire, October 7-9,2011

Put us on the maybe list. My wife is coming back from a business trip Saturday morning, we'll see if she's still up for it when I pick her up from the airport.

Hope to see you all, Ron & Claudia.

Fortunately I ordered all black shirts. That means we all survive the experience, but we have to play rugby in the sand.

Here is a video showing the very first Sportsmobile in the Valley of Fire. There's also a KTM mototcycle, complete with side car. This was the first Valley of Fire Meet and Greet.

Fortunately, Cable Hogue found water in the Valley of Fire, so those of you who are coming to the Meet and Greet in less than two weeks don't have to worry about that. There is a fresh water spigot either in or near every campsite in Arch CG. And there's even flushing toilets and showers in the Atlatal CG. The valley of Fire has come a long way since Hogue's days.

Meet and Greet at Alabama Hills Spring 2012???

Since we have taken on a Movie Buff Location theme:

Suggest Alabama Hills for Spring 2012
- No camp sites
- No water

However they did film some movies here....... :b5:

(Mac, your gonna have to retire to find THESE youtube clips. LOL)


McCoy’s Cave. This opening in the rocks (not a real cave) was used in a Star Trek Episode where McCoy delivers the baby of an warrior alien queen and nearly pays with his life for it. The cave interior was on a sound stage but it was here that they emerged to face the gathered warriors. The side road turns west off at Movie Rd at 36° 36.356 / 118° 07.375. Drive west about ¼ mile (+/- )to the circle drive in front of the “cave” at 36° 36.260 / 118° 07.486

Re: Meet and Greet at Valley of Fire, October 7-9,2011

Rob:

Wow! And I'm the one who needs to get a life? I hope you got this list off the Internet somewhere and didn't have to put it together yourself.

Alabama wins again. They've got the Valley of Fire beat hands down! In fact, at least one of the movies the Internet says was filmed in the Valley of Fire (the original Planet of the Apes) was actually filmed at Lake Powell. So much for V of F.

Now I need to go camping in the Alabama Hills. You set up the Meet and Greet (or just the two of us) and I will be there.

Mac

P.S.: A CSI episode where a lady is found floating in a pool at a house party was filmed at my neighbor's house. Do I get any points for that?

Re: Meet and Greet at Valley of Fire, October 7-9,2011

So Mac, what's up with the weather down there. I'll have to pull out if you have weather in the 90's. The forcast is showing unusually hot weather like we're having here. Do you see a break coming? I'll show if it's in the low 80's crossing the desert but am leery doing anything hotter than that.

Re: Meet and Greet at Valley of Fire, October 7-9,2011

Dave:

The highs during the Meet and Greet are expected to be in the upper 80's and the lows in the mid 60's. But I have to tell you that even 90 in Vegas feels perfect this time of year. I know it's a cliche, but it really is a dry heat. Right now, at 8:26am, it is 72 degrees and heavenly. This past weekend was perfect football weather. Since you are going to be the first to arrive, I would suggest you take one of the shadier campsites in Arch Rock CG -- sites 25-28. I seriously doubt you will have any heat problems. The weather at night is perfect for sleeping. You can leave your windows and doors open since there are no mosquitoes in the desert. So don't let the weather hold you back. I was driving across the desert last week with no air conditioning and my windows down. It was fine for me.

Hope we don't miss you.

Mac
