If he was going out to Spangler, I would think Burbank would be a better shot. :thinking:
Burbank would work too. But Ontario would be closer. If I am a betting man though, those 2 places may be a bit more expensive than LAX.
 
I will say this, if the trip ends up in Ocotillo, I will go there. But you know how I feel about all the different kinds of riding at Spangler. I still vote for New Year's for Ocotillo.

James, on another note, I live about 75 miles northwest of downtown LA and about an hour and forty five min from Spangler. If Rack insists on putting you outside in the dog cage, I can put you up here until we leave. Then we would have to figure out where and with who you could stay wherever we camp. I usually go out by myself or with the kids early, say Sunday before TDAY, and the wife joins us later.

As for the dust, I've seen it horrible that time of year and I have seen it spectacular with perfect wet desert conditions. Even have seen a bit of snow out there too.

And that is what makes Spangler so spectacular! :thumb:

When Primal comes out he flies to SD cuz Ontario is normally about a 100 more..Burbank would probably be expensive to.

Depart SBN on 11/24/10 at 3:22pm - Arrive in FAT (Fresno) at 9:22pm - $617.19 (plus extra bag fee)

:thumb: Don't see the point in a 2 hour drive if I could just fly right to Fresno.:P What day & time would you guys head to spangler/where ever we're going?

It just rained a little here, so we're probably going riding again tonight. :banana: Third night in a row. :banana::banana: So if I don't pick up I'm probably still "working" or out :ride:

From Fresno it's about a 4.5 hour drive dragging our trailer to Spangler. I will not be going to Ocotillo for Thanksgiving. We can work out the details for departure and return days depending upon what the flights cost you.

Dang that's about as long as me flying out there. :bonk: Sounds like a plan. :thumb:

Maybe I just need to ask the pilot if I can do a HALO jump over Spangler and save my self some time.:smirk:

What about leaving like the Thursday or Friday before?
I can't take off of work for that long, I do have a 9-5 job :bonk: However I did check out the prices and they only dropped about $50-100.

:lol: Just for shits & giggles, I checked out the first class rates. :devil: if you guys would all chip in and pay the $1200 upgrade fee I could fly first class. I would give all you guys a :hug: if you did that. :sadpuppyeyes:

:smirk:

Damn that's ridiculous, $1,800 for first class. :foul:
