Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

Hi Bill,

That'd be fun for sure, but we're already full up. As in two bedrooms and three to be there.

But don't let that slow you down. There's sure to be several openings. I'd see you doing well if Doug sets up like last year with a couple spots to fill. That'd be right next door, if set up like last year.

I'm looking forward to a music year. A very laid back time. More fires, more smores, more stories. Look forward to the great new music that seems to come up, and time with great people and great equipment.

Make it happen!!

Seems like we started trying to get pricing in about March maybe? Too early and they have trouble figuring out what to do.

Another month or so and we should start looking at occupancy probably.

It's going to be a great fest year!!

I worry that people (first timers) look at the big cabin prices on the web site and think it's too expensive. When you divide up with somebody, it can be much more reasonable. Plus, planning way ahead and budgeting for the event helps a lot too.

It kind of amazes me that the big cabins, like the one with the bunks downstairs, doesn't get really split up and filled up. Those would likely work out even cheaper yet than a two or three way split. The sleeping hours is the last concern for the time to me. I look forward to the mornings on the deck, with a great cup of coffee and looking forward to a whole 'nother day of doing nothing with great people and great music!

You're absolutely right, Mark! At least in my case. I've thought several times about going, but the price in addition to travel expenses and time off from work have been prohibitive.

I agree with this, too! I wouldn't mind splitting the cost and sharing one of those big rooms with five or ten other people. I can function without sleep, but I'd be bringing my girl and a grouchy sleep-deprived redhead is dangerous! So the accommodations can't be *too* raucous...

Is there a particular cabin/signup for those of us who want to "slum" it?

Someone else could perhaps add in some detail, but I think those bunks were used once. Isn't that in Cabin 5?

Each cabin has been on a case by case basis. Someone takes the lead and usually looks to have another bedroom filled or two depending on the cabin size. In my case, from what I've seen, a week on average (if there is such a thing), runs about $900-1000 and the two weeks about $1500. That's for a full bedroom and a full split of cabin costs. Then add on your food which could vary your price quite a bit depending on your habits and how much you split that up but another $100 or so a week. You have to work that out with whoever your making arrangements with.

Now if a big place could be divided up even more, I'd suspect you could pull those numbers down a far amount. A single guy bunking might cut that in half. But that'd require somebody making the cabin booking and then finding folks for the bedrooms that are there (probably at a greater share of the cost) and then those that want to just bunk. Seems like it was 6 bunks in Cabin 5 and maybe three bedrooms. Heck, that could wind up being downright affordable if pretty filled up.

The Cabin folks don't make individual arrangements like that. Somebody has to do the place in their name, even if an even split is arranged prior for like a 2 bedroom. Like last year, Doug booked and had a couple open bedrooms he was looking for folks to split cost on. A little prior agreement and help with sharing food costs if cooking together, and this doesn't have to be crazy expensive. When going with a spouse, it's either get in line early for a small place or look to nab a bedroom situation in a split with somebody. A lot of folks have done a treehouse the first year and then find somebody they don't mind sharing with. Though, I think the treehouse may be a bit more expensive than a split situation.

In my case, I lay money aside a little each month for the year to cover it. Then a run a week to the store for food. All I have to have is nothing big or bad happen with work and I'm in for a great and unforgettable time.

In the beginning, food costs were split and folks got together for meals. But after growing real quick to more than just a few people, that got too hard. No common hall to do food prep is kind of a problem. Though, I think people enjoy the getting together aspect of that time, it's just easier to do your own thing since each cabin has a nice kitchen and all the hardware. Just bring your own software (food).

It'd be really great to see you get it worked out. Everybody will do what they can to help get something figured out. Kind of just a matter of putting it out there and working out something for a split....or committing to one of the available smaller places. Last year I tried to keep putting up the list of bookings. It starts with whoever had the places the previous year and who has spoken for what, added on to that as people can commit with the actual bookings. The cabin folks let us take the lead on figuring it all out, as that helps them maximize the dollars which in turn helps keep the costs as reasonable as it can be.

This far in advance is a great time to be looking at this and figuring out what fits for you. It's such a great vacation. You can decide for yourself how much you want to stay in your place, how much you want to go visit the surrounding area and how much you want to go visit with or listen to somebody system. So it's a vacation, with the bonus of great people....and Bob!

Lots of good info there, Mark! =D> Thanks for taking the time to write such a long and detailed reply.

I'll keep an eye on the bookings, because I'd love to make this happen!
