I currently see 7 rigs going because I haven’t seen a response from @Dumbo jk .

Got a call back from GSNP Ranger this morning. They’re now hoping Piñon Flats campground will be open tomorrow or Friday. If it’s not the dispersed camping hasn’t been too full up Medano and there is also dispersed areas on BLM land along 150. Sounds like when we get there they will be very helpful for suggestions if needed.

I was able to get a reservation at the campground and will come up Friday afternoon. It looked pretty booked up on the website recreation.gov but got Loop 1 site #2.

There must have been a cancellation. Good deal, see you Friday Tim!
Looking forward to it. I'll be in a Cement Taco and on the radio. Since I have a campsite will probably bring my micro trailer for my base camp. I'll save your number and if I can't get you on the GMRS I'll send a text and set up in Spot#002. Drive safely everyone.

Hey all. Some of us came into the park on Medano Pass and it’s fun, narrow, and not hard. We are going to Zapata Falls after breakfast for most of us then coming back and in afternoon, some may want to go up Medano, some hiking, dunes.
We’ll drive by the coordinates I posted on the RP on the way out to Zapata so @KoRnRunneR and @tim.lemons can join us.
