    Time to start planning, there are cabins and bunkhouses available at the park,
    also showers, primitive camping and electricity available. In town, there are 2 hotels,
    the Executive Inn and the Gilmer inn.
    This is probably my favorite ride of the year.... one of the only times I'll burn
    vacation to make it.

    In. We'll be in Cabin 3 at the front of the park. I just checked the website and it looks like Cabin 1 and all of the bunkhouses are still available.

    We're planning on rolling out Friday morning from Livonia. If anybody else is heading out Friday morning we'd be glad to convoy either from Livonia on HWY 190 or I49 around Opelousas. If you're passing through let me know and we'll jump in line.

    Is anybody going on this ride? I've been out of the loop for a while but this used to be one of the most popular rides of the year. Guaging by this forum LA4X4 is dead. What is the expected turnout?

    We'll usually have between 15 and 30 vehicles show up....
    People will start showing up at the camping area at the top of the hill around 8 AM,
    but nothing organized. We are going up on Thursday, and will be staying
    at the Executive Inn

    We made it back around 12 last night. Cut a tire and cut Saturday short.
    Had a Great time with the group that I ran with.
    This was the first big run for the Buggy and it did really good. Had some minor battery issues and minor hydraulic issues. Over all had went extremely smooth. Looking forward to Clayton.

    Just got done unloading. I saw a few people taking pictures but we don't have any. Had a good time. Nice riding with you Larry, at least for a little while. If we go back we'll definitely have to drive up Thursday. Looking forward to the next ride, wherever that may be.
