If you are going to be in the neighborhood of Southern California at the end of the month, make a plan to attend Nightfall.

I am going to be there with my LX850 14 and my AVX Edge8. Feel free to stop by and say hi!

I'll be in the usual corner, far from the Barbecue pit and the pools and spas, and way far from the bar.......

Yes, guys, there really are all those things at this hotel/RV resort where we have Nightfall!!!

My wife must have her boyfriend coming over for the weekend because she offered to work out her schedule to allow me to head out on Wednesday instead of Thursday. Having that extra night to work out the bugs and get things all set up would be great. I just need to decide where to set up. Usually I am in the upper parking lot because I know someone who I enjoy chatting with that usually sets up there as well. This year he will be over in the RV park and set up there so I may move down to the center parking lot which is usually dedicated to "imagers". The only problem with that is there isn't very much socializing there. Everyone is so serious.

Anyone who will be there come find me! I'll have candy!

Great weather.

Nightfall 2014!

 

When & Where
Thursday, October 23 through Sunday, October 26, 2014

 

Palm Canyon Hotel & RV Resort
221 Palm Canyon Dr.
Borrego Springs, CA 92004

 

Personally I've always enjoyed the later October Nightfall vs early October - it's usually a little cooler.

 

Should be an awesome event as usual.

I kept forgetting to book a room and now they are sold out.  I did snag a camping spot and it seems there are plenty of those left.  As I don't own an RV, I am going to end up tenting it.  If anyone else wants to throw up a tent I'd be glad to split a site with you.
