Thank you to all who camped at Lake Skinner. I especially want to thank Derick Greenly for starting this thread. Just trying to get a place to stay opened it up for all of us to get together. The conference was amazing, but was so much richer because of all the people who attended, but even more so for the people who stood around that campfire and shared thoughts, ideas, and dreams. I hope I can stay in touch will all of you awesome people. Now it is time for us to do epic stuff!

Any read on whether there's open space for another tent in the permies zone? Also, any info on what the spots in the 500 number ranger are all about? It seems like they're probably the "primitive" spots, but the reservation list uses different terminology, and I was on hold with the reservation office for about half an hour before giving up. If there's room for a tent, and I end up not bringing a car, it might be nice to join forces with someone rather than go rogue in the 500s.

I do not know about the 500's.

So far I'm the only one in Site 122, so you can join me. I made my reservation online and there were a few other spots available. I'm arriving sometime on 3/12 and checking out on 3/16. If you want to stay until Monday in Site 122 you may want to reserve it for Sunday night or maybe another site will have room Monday night. I'm staying for the whole conference, just heading to a nearby town afterwards.

What is going on with the Lake Skinner camping? I just reserved site 122. Not wanting to intrude, but would like to be near other Permies if possible. Looking forward to meeting lots of awesome people!
