I'm all booked for The Dalles and looking forward to the event and getting some time Trackside in the Gorge!! I've had the opportunity to see part of Joel Hawthorn's presentation and it has some great shots and video! Looking forward to seeing the rest.

I'm still not 100% sure I'll go, but will make every attempt to at least go for the presentation day. Railroad and family life keep me anchored.

Hoping to be attend. For those of us hard-core railfans on a budget, trackside camping is always a blast in the Gorge. Nothing better than sipping beer, BS'ing, and watching the trains go by at night.

We will probably be at Avery, but if it is full (organized camp area or the few "unimproved" spots near the end of the yard) we may end up near the detector at Towal (fabulous morning lighting there for eastbounds).

(Austin won't be sipping beer, he's only 17)
