This one will bump into the beginning of the Golden State Star Party (6/20-24 2020) in Northern California. It's only a half day's drive away so you could make it into a full week's adventure and attend both.

It's kind of a bummer that Logan Valley is the same new moon as GSSP this year.

 

I was at both last year, and really enjoyed them,  Logan Valley is a great location, with better skies than GSSP.  But between the two, I will go to GSSP because I do like having a larger event with more people. Also, there will be vendors at GSSP (and my wife attends GSSP with me, and that's a big factor).

 

Going to both is a non-starter, because I really do not want to move my stuff that many times.  I do one session per new moon...

 

On edit:  I do want to add that if you have an interest in Logan Valley, you should really consider going.  The skies are excellent and it's a nice setup.  It is much more remote and primitive than GSSP.  You don't have easy access to facilities beyond the minimal stuff that the campground provides.  But that's part of the reason why the conditions are so great.  Also, GSSP has lots of daytime activities readily available,which is not the case for Logan Valley.

I was looking forward to both this year. However this one might work out better for people on a strict budget and who live closer to Logan Valley.

That statement is only correct if you live in John Day.  It is in the middle of somewhere.

That's what I'm thinking.  Since it's on my way maybe 3 or 4 days at LV and then on to the GSSP.   Shame it's not the other way around because LV would be a great place to relax and unwind after the hustle and bustle of GSSP.
