Pretty sure it is the Olivers, not Escapes. They dominate the hill.

What is referred to as Snob Hill is a long ridge actually. The Oliver's did all set up in one area up there, otherwise is was all other brands dispersed along it. A bit nicer view to the south, but a bit further from the activities. For the most part, if you move further away you would just go back downhill again.

Almost certain to head there tomorrow. Only 90 minutes from our gorgeous site at Imperial Dam.

As of today, there are three Olivers on the flats, and one on the hill. There are already at least 30 trailers spread across the area, including 6 that are parked near Dome Rock itself, well away from the main camping area. 3 sun blockers still in the main set up area...

Great to see intermingling, as last year I don't think there was a single Oliver on the flats last year. Get those big rigs moved, okay. Will help tomorrow if needed.

We will be tomorrow morning now. All four of us had a flu bug, the last just getting over it now. I'm good now though, just went on another big bike ride for the second day in a row. It feels good to feel good!
