Fall Gathering Oct 23-29 2022 Final Decision
« on: May 09, 2022, 08:02:15 AM »
Looking at dates for a fall trip, we are already way behind.  October dates are as follows:  4-8 has 3 spots.  11 - 15 has zero.  18-22 has zero.  25 thru 29 has 10.

Nothing wrong with dueces. Full hookups . Trail to north gate is better than in the past. Raised speed limit has helped.

I have no dog in this but if I did there would be no way I'd consider that overcrowded place. Much nicer than in past but still too busy/noisy/late at night.

I know you guys bitch about the trail being rough yet you hit the choppy ass dunes without a care. 😂 Dueces is quiet at night and the few minutes it takes to get to the gate is just right to have the engine and trans warmed up just right. I hate going out with a cold or near cold car and hammering it.

we used to camp on the south side. did so for several years but it got crazy over there. i understand people want to party. i understand kids will get loud, drunk and stupid, i even expect to see some passed out face down in the sand burs on the sout side. the dangerous drivers in camp, poop over towering the toilet seat in the public bathroom plus the quads that tried to out run the rangers and the drunk that T boned a truck and tried to drive off........that was the last time i stayed on the south side.  where it is possible......i'm really not sure what could ever convince me to give it another try when dueces is much closer to the north gate.

the only thing that bothered me at dueces was the 5 am to 5:3p am train horn! the trail is no big deal unless you have to tow someone back.  full hook up and enough room for all is a major plus imo. now i understand it can get dusty over there. i have never experienced that as the only time we stayed there it misted off and on half the trip. i can see the problem though.

We've gotten used to the train horn. Really don't even notice it now. House is just about as close as Dueces is to it. I will say though they don't blow it looooonnnnnggggg and as obnoxious as in the past. The RR has gotten a bit more considerate.
