I know FB has a "Spring and Fall" thread going, but I think perhaps Fall Torrey merits its own thread. Is anybody going? It's looking like I'll be able to go this year, for the first time in a while, but the guy I talked to at the Chuckwagon says they're booked up, they're not keeping a waiting list, and based on who's booked, he doesn't expect any cancellations. In fact, rooms are scarce all over town. I found a couple of places with rooms for Friday night, but not Thursday or Saturday. The one exception is the Capitol Reef Resort, way the hell out of town toward the park and $239/night. So, maybe I'm not going to Torrey!

At the time that I called a while ago I was told that I was first on the waiting list. But so far no call with an opening. I guess that this won't be the year that I go to my first Torrey.

I'm IN for fall Torrey.

I've never heard of a guy answering the phones or taking reservations there. I'd try calling back and asking for Michelle. She pretty much runs the show when it comes to the reservations there and the one who usually has the waiting list going for us. There's usually some kind of last minute cancellation by someone so it can't hurt to call and ask her to be added to her list if she still keeps one.

There will be cancellations. So don't give up yet.
It may be that who you talked to didn't know about the waiting list.

Sometimes when there is a cancellation, they don't get a chance to call anyone, as someone else takes the room. So you can't really just wait for a call.

I was over there yesterday and the weather was great, as it probably will be next month.

And Doug, if you haven't been over there, you need to go. It was looking more scenic and beautiful than ever yesterday.

Yeah, I was surprised not to get Michelle. I don't recall what the guy said his name was, but it wasn't anybody I recognized. I'll try again tomorrow. But all the places I've made back-up reservations in years past are full, too, and that doesn't bode well.

I hope to be in the area too, but lodging seems tight all over. Ugh.

Just called. Got the machine again. I don't know what times they're actually in the office, but it's not any of the times I've called.

That guy identified his name as Bill.

Michelle is still working there. She was there a couple hours ago.
You just need to call at the right moment when she is at the desk and answering.

So, with a little help from a phone call by someone who shall remain anonymous but whose initials are FB, I'm #5 on the waiting list. But they don't think it's all that likely I'll get a room. I'm going to call some other places in town and see if they're willing to take a waiting list.

Susan and I are in. Looking forward to it. Many years since we have been to Torrey.
