Smile Petit Jean 2019 - Update 15 Days Out .... Come on CAMPERS!

See post #2 below for Update -- Calling those Petit Jean Repeats …. rooms are full but man, the campgrounds are wide open! 80 rooms and about 30 camper'planes are already registered 4 weeks out! Check out these oldies but goodies from years past.

Plan on packing those tents and a bedroll and pack up the RV. It's time to gear up for the trip to the RV Mountain! October 11-13 but come on in Thursday if you can. Already looking at about 25 airplanes and 50 heads that have found a place to stay and coming in early for the pre-party party :--) It's the most fun workday you'll have on an airport. Dinner at Mather Lodge with adult refreshments... It's RV'ator camping in high style!

Campers only need to do the OnLine registration and then let us know if you're not coming. We promise you the easiest airplane camping you will ever have. Campsites are with the airplane or in the campground, your choice. Firewood is cut, all food is provided, drinks are cold, and the showers are hot! Transport to all the trails is just part of the deal.

Check out the website for more information, pictures, and video!
PetitJeanFlyIn website: www.PetitJeanFlyIn.com

See you on the Mountain ! :--)

Smile Two Week Update

This is the two week out update folks! We’re excited, the grass is cut low, the ramp is being trimmed and the planning is just about to turn into actual doing! The 80 odd rooms on the Mountain are still full but the campground is almost WIDE open….almost because we have about 20 confirmed campers who we know will be there.

If you’ve been thinking about Petit Jean and never made it, now is the time. Easiest camping anywhere, everything but the tents and bedrolls are there for you. Skip anything below that doesn’t apply to camping. No need to do anything but Register so that we know you are coming and can plan accordingly. We are wait listing for rooms so email me if you want to do that. Right now we have 80 rooms booked and 4 on the wait list.

Everyone who has already confirmed rooms using the RESERVE MY ROOM process should have been contacted by now. You should have confirmed with the RCC by now as well per a previous email. If you have not, please email me! Otherwise ……

Come on CAMPERS !

Thanks we’ll be looking for you on the RV Mountain!
PS … all of the usual repeat offenders have called: We’re in In IN … for PJ 19!


IF YOU ARE CAMPING …. All you need to do is the OnLine Registration. Click Here https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BJVC9CV No prepays needed, (but we would gladly accept one �� see camping options in the Pay Pal menu ) just a confirmation that you are coming so that we can prepare and commit for transport, meals, etc. We always run out of rooms on the mountain early but we never run out of campsites….. so far!

Default Hello .... Come on Campers !

Campers, come on …. give us some love here We're 15 days out and we're looking for more airplanes. We have just over 100 registered and looking for 125 so 25 more Campers would be PERFECT. We think we have the place ready to park 125 on a golf course surface!

The campground is going to be perfect, with Cabin Class Restrooms and the rumor is there will be a Lime Slush Machine with an Adult Lime Slush option …. whatever that means in PJ Margaritaville

The dance card is also short an RV3 …. surely there is a 3 driver with a very small tent somewhere

See post above for registration link. Just sign in so we know you are coming and can plan on it! Life is good in RV Country

See you on the Mountain !

So, I’m just putting you all on notice that it’ll be me that’ll be winning that grand prize this year! :-) And speaking of which, hey Bill, what does the prize lineup look like this year?

Two years ago, it felt like it took over an hour to pass out all the prizes. There were lots of prizes passed out. Would not be surprised that there are more items added to the booty every day.

With Judie's travel equipment requirements I know there is no space for an extra seat in the 6 so are you coming in 2 planes?

Thumbs up Judie to Fig

We hope to be there Thursday with an eighteen wheeler for Judie’s stuff. We can help on Thursday, of course it’s all weather dependent.
