Camping at the National?

There's gotta be camping, right? the article in the Jan/Feb issue of OTL talks about lodging and RV lodging, but doesn't say where the camping will be. Help!

This was posted back in November, by Tina, the rally Chair. There's plenty of 'Flat' camping room for everyone.

We have 3 designated camping areas. The main one is at the base of the resort. It is a soccer field and totally flat. At the soccer field is also a big parking lot for RV's or trailers that do not require electric. Bathrooms are located here. Camping will be allowed here no earlier than Wednesday before the rally. On Thursday, available camping is also available inside the ski resort.

The March issue of OTL will address many of the questions you may have. Really happy to see the interest in the 40th.
20 vendors so far and growing.

Over half of our blocked rooms are reserved already. Looks like we're going to have a great crowd.

Website says there's camping in or near Center Village, and camping with electricity by "The Edge." Are these areas pretty much flat also?

Best,

The alpine area is totally flat. The edge, for special needs camping is a variety of flat and a mixture. The third location is mostly flat. Registration will identify the camping areas when you check in.

Tina, I have seen a little about the RV camping, I am assuming (you know what that does!) hoping that the shuttle goes through the RV area as well?

The RV camping is at the Alpine Lot at the Resort. The shuttle goes to the resort.

I will need to camp in the section where there is electric for a cpap machine... how long of an extension cord does one think I will need?
