Accomodations?

Hello,

I received the email mentioning the on site "dry" RV camping and the other campground that is a short walk from the rally grounds (how far is a "short" walk)?

Also, are there any nearby hotels?

The rally homepage has a list of motels; if you've already seen that and it didn't answer your questions theen let us know exacly what info you want.

Hopefully I'll be posting a map of the rally site within a day or two and it'll show the RV areas.

Old_Mil,
Not sure if Anton was able to provide you the information you needed so thought I might be able to help. I live in Boise and am very familiar with the rally grounds. The RV camping will be a the On The River RV Park, located immediately north of the grounds. It is actually part of the Expo Idaho facility and is along the Boise River. A fence and gate seperate the RV park from the grassy camping area those of us in tents will be using. From the gate to the center of it all (which I think is the vendor sites, but I'm biased) it is a 150 yd. walk. Most of the motels/hotels near the rally grounds are up the road ~1-4 miles. If you choose to stay at the RV park, there is a link on the 2006 RAlly page for reservations. The park has sites with full hook-ups and some without.

Don't forget to bring your fishing poles. The section of the river along the RV park is on of the best sections for trout fishing. Can't say for sure right now, but in the past the Idaho Dept. of Fish and Game has released adult steelhead in the river in this area. I'll talk with some of my buddies at IDFG to see if this is going to happen around the time of the rally. Smile ---rick
