If Mike hasn't upgraded the park no way I would  pay 30.00 per day for a 15amp service and try to dodge the trees . someone may know how many sites he has now but 2 years ago there was just a few on the top by the restaurant.We need more information besides a parking fee if this is a rally or gathering how about it Mike. you moderators are quite on this topic guess your in the dark also

LarryH.  Almost every rally that I know of, had a fee.  That fee includes the camping and certain other activities (generally at least one meal).  The fee is usually priced such that it is less expensive that a "drive off the street" rate.

Luvrbus, on one of the related websites, it says that they have redone the camping area and it now includes most of the amenities of your typical campground, including WiFi.  I am not sure about 50 amp, but whatever I read suggested they had put some money in the facilities.

As of late today (1/29) neither MAK or Dennis have returned my calls.

Phil Lyons wrote me a note saying that he would try to contact MAK and see if he could get an answer.  Phil is pretty well connected, so I would expect that he can find a way to contact them.

Just to be clear (communication on these boards does not always come out the way we intend), I really want this rally to take place.  I believe that any event involving crazy bus folks can be very fun ;D ;D  I like the Caverns, since it lends itself to a laid back environment and exudes history (located on old route 66).

Jim,

I am waiting for an answer to email I sent MAK, also.  From the number of people that have commented on "no communications" I suspect that something might be wrong.  Mike has, in the past, been timely in every respect with our dealings.  Illness....employees...other stuff.  He has helped more than his share and maybe he now needs an assist.  Anybody know?

I had contacted Phil to see if he could contact MAK or Dennis (because of his relationship with the folks at BC).  He had not had a chance to get to it, but said he would try today. 

I still have not been contacted.

This is a real shame. I was thinking we might ride up there and check this out after the great time we had at Quartzsite. And even though it is bad that the rally will most likely not happen (or at least no one will be there for lack of knowledge), the worse thing is the lack of communication of any kind. We all support this board and the magazine but this is not good.

I can't imagine no one contacting you guys that are interested. Hope it all works out somehow. Sounds like there is enough interest in attending one at the Caverns.

With all the previous talk from Mike about having one it, something doesn't sound right.

Maybe TomC could drive over and talk to him.

Good Luck!

Hi Guy's,

Mike is not always the easiest person to get a hold of but, it's listed on the site.

http://busconversions.com/event_calendar.html

I think that the details are just not worked out yet and he will post when they are.

Just to make sure we are all on the same page, there will be a rally.

Phil Lyons posted a "sticky" with the title "Caverns is ON".

The "Caverns" and MAK rally are one in the same.

I thought I would bring this to the top again and mention that there is some dialog going on about this rally in this thread:  http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index.php?topic=7253.0.

At least we got a response from Dennis.  If you read that topic, you will see that I am not very pleased with the response, but at least we got one.
