    How do I reserve a spot for this outing?

    I am a GPAA member. 

    Does the $100 include my wife? What is included for the $100 fee?

    Any hookups available?

    thank you

    YAAAA!!!  We're going!!

    First time to a LDMA/GPAA outing. Made reservations for 8/18 thru 8/22.  Thank you Adriana!!

    I'm hearing from rangers in the area that it might be fairly crowded around there.

    Forest folks are expecting 30,000 to 50,000 people across Oregon under eclipse path.

    Interstate folks thinking I84 North and South of Lime, Ore. gonna be very busy.

    OH MY OH MY...might get a lil crazy.

    For this event, do I need any permits if I bring equipment?

    I'll have a 2" highbanker/dredge combo.

    thank you

    You can operate under the LDMA camp General permit when you are on the property. Bring your equipment and be ready to have fun.

    It will be real crazy 10, 000 scientist and 40, 000 crazy people with tin foil on their heads, good time. If you stay on LDMA property then you do not need a permit, they have them for their property. If you go to a GPAA claim then you will need I believe it is the 600 permit from the state of OR. Good luck usually takes me about two months to get mine. If your wife would like to dig in the outing and receive part of the split then she would need to pay the $100 also, you may be able to call the main office and talk them into a deal, always worth a try. Will see you their, Keith.

    Just a reminder for anyone going...You can concentrate on finding the gold and leave the meals to the kitchen crew! No cooking and the only cleanup you have to do is to your sluicebox! The kitchen crew is already making plans for this to be a great outing. Great food and YES meal cards will be offered at Blue Bucket like they were last year at Burnt River. Until August 10th, the cards are $ 60 (a $70 value). After that date they will go up. Call the camp (541)869-2455 to reserve yours. Did someone say we even have Snickerdoodles and Root Beer floats planned? Dinners will begin the day of arrival with a welcome to camp chili feed and it just gets better! One (at least) of the meal card participants will win a picker. Other perks may be announced.

    5 days digging in the dirt at 95-100 degrees.

    Where are the nearest showers and dump stations?

    I think they have showers on site, I think. They do not have a dump, you would need to go to baker city to dump or over to the Burnt River they have a dump there.

    No Black tank waste dump yet. We will have a service come in during outing to pump peoples rigs. Have not heard final cost yet, but reasonable. Huntington 9 miles south has a dump station as well.
    Burnt River that flows thru property is a nice cold shower (LOL). No official showers yet.

    There are no hook ups available, they will have an area set up for folks who need to run a generator as night. Let the check in crew know your needs when you arrive at the camp
