2016 Summer RTR in Flagstaff - Cancelled? Relocated?
#1
Just saw this posted on facebook and wanted to get the word out in case you were making plans.

"Notice to everyone. Ranger drove thru and kicked us out. Over 75 people without a permit. We have to be out by noon tomorrow. No joke"

I'm sure Bob will update when he can
I'd like to give myself a few negative ratings, because I am such a big meanie. The forum won't allow it. Feel free!

I am so sorry to hear that. What a rotten thing to have happen. I would have come all the way from the northeast US if I had a van already. Hope they can move to someplace else so it doesn't totally end early

Sounds like they had a great turn out, but 75 people not getting permits seems a bit high, especially when all that was covered on their videos. Or maybe someone got wind of the event and frowns upon vehicle dwellers in general?

I'm very sorry for the people that made this their vacation, especially the first timers. I hope they were here long enough to network and wander off with new friends if this can not be relocated. This is what many campers did after Quartzsite. I stayed with a group and we camped from place to place together until May.

This is such a caring group. One of the young ladies here, just 12 years old was upset and crying.she of course expected to stay longer and was in the process of building a fantastic pine shelter and didn't want to leave it either. I was hugging her and a very young woman came over to help. Next thing I see, the 2 of them went to the shelter and it was being documented Kaley will always have the memory the other woman set to film.

I can't watch th videos but I have been out here long enough I should have known better and got a permit. Live and learn.

If anyone knows the GPS coordinates for (or has clear directions to) either of the two new meetup spots, please post here? I'm here at RTR now. Thanks in advance!

Does everyone have to leave or just folks without a permit?  Can people leave get a permit and come back??  Does the Ranger have "discretionary"  power like some other LEO's where he/she can possibly work something out?  I feel bad for everyone,  who would ever have thought about this happening?  I hope they can regroup and "Laissez les bon temps roulez"...Cajun speak for let the good times roll.                                   Texas Jbird
