So it may be a better idea to hit the parks on the way up there, rather than on the way down. I usually pitch a tent or sleep in the car to save money.
    2F, just curious are you camping during the workshop or hitting up the hotels? I've never been there and wanted to know how booked are the hotels Jim recommended during this time of the year.

    May can be nice for camping. It's 6,000 feet elevation, so it can do most anything from snow to 80 degrees. I have snow pictures from one year in May. But it doesn't stay long then.

    Hugo,there is I think camping somewhere there but its much easier to stay in the motels they have in Tonopah.As far as a ride you are on the way form LA to Tonopah so I think between the three or four of us we can work out something.Asher wants to carpool and I was going to go with Per but four of us and equipment I don't think will fit in the Per-mobile,so something larger would work out fine.But once were there we need a car to get around in to the different place's.

    Mike,

    I've got a Ram 1500, so if anyone wants to throw their gear on the back bed then you're more than welcome to. I can meet up with you guys on the way, I live in Anaheim.

    ghostcount,That may be a good idea, although we would have to shuttle the gear around.

    I haven't really thought about it yet. If there is a campground within a reasonable distance, and the weather is not insane, I will probably get a motel every third day or so, and camp the rest of the time.

    I wish I still had my hearse. I could just park anywhere and sleep in Cadillac luxury for free. It fit a full-sized mattress in the back. The problem was gas, though, at 12-13 MPG highway and 8-10 city. Then again, gas cost 1/4 of today's prices when I had it.

    2F2F,bet that Hearse would look really cool pulling into Tonopah with a couple of 10ft Dewey Weber surf boards on top.

    We could go surfing the Nevada dunes...but the boards would be by Eddie Talbot, and they would fit inside perfectly. No need to strap them to the roof in a 22 foot long station wagon.

    Don't forget to take out the skegs - side bites too if you got them.
