No refund yet :) Let's wait till May 21, scheduled opening date, before we throw the baby out with bathwater. Or maybe we should wait till July? 8)

I just read a report that camp grounds in Illinois are opening with full facilities the first of June. This is a very repressive state, so if we are opening I'm sure Wyoming will be open, certainly by July. So make your plans to join us at New Forks Group site in Pinedale.

Hey Will, can you direct me to more detailed info about Walk the Winds? A web site perhaps or past years event info? I'm assuming it's usually very warm, but, I'm just a stinkin midwesterner with no out west experience.

It's a big trip for me and I was originally thinking of an early fall trip out that way, but, if the heat won't kill me maybe I'll look at this trip.

Thanks, TimC

I see some jackets on in the evening for the lantern light. I'm all about cozy cool nights! I can stand heat during the day as long as I get to sleep cool!

As long as you pack for three seasons you will be fine. I've been to this gathering twice before and sleeping has always been comfortable.
