Laura, I'm not seeing the campground we'll be using? Also not sure if I'll arrive Friday night or early Saturday morning. Kinda worried about Vegas bound traffic Friday night.

Had a great time! It's been too long since we did an ODC group trip.

Thanks to Laura and "Gar Bear" for organizing the trip! I enjoyed myself and enjoyed seeing everyone. FYI, it was a good thing I left when I did. Margaret's plane was diverted to Ontario so I was able to pick her up on my way home!
