    Refund policy

  • It's time for our annual Wawona Car Camping Winter Trip.

    What better way to embrace winter with all it's gusto. If the snow doesn't come, we'll hike some of the parks legendary trails. Since we'll be car camping, you can bring extra blankets and your down pajamas to stay warm in your sleeping bag. For you photographers, this will be a great opportunity to capture some Ansel Adams-like shots. If you plan to attend and can drive (chains are required, although you may not need them) post a note that you can drive and the number of people you can bring. If you want to snag one of those spots, then post for which vehicle you wish to reserve a spot. This should make carpooling a little easier. The cost of the trip will be $10 per person (non-refundable unless circumstances require us to cancel the trip) plus gas money and park entry fees for the drivers. We'll do a group dinner on Saturday night and a pot luck breakfast on Sunday morning. More details will follow as the trip gets closer. If you need to ask a question, feel free to email me. Space is limited to 25. Don't let this golden opportunity slip away. If there is snow, there will even be a snowman competition! 

    Check out the Badger Pass site for more info on Skiing and Snow Boarding, Cross Country Skiing, Snow Shoeing and Tubing.

    I can drive my Subaru Outback and it has chains, but the manufacturer says you shouldn't use them with my all weather tires. I carry them to satisfy requirements. I can take three others. Lisa? interested?

      Jen, Lisa, Theresa and her plus 1 have said they are going. I think four with equipment is all I can take. It is the equipment that I worry about room for the most. Think I will need a little space in the back seat as I have no roof carrier. If any of those three change their mind you are welcome, but I would look for another ride at this point. Sorry.

      If you don't have 4 wd you should have chains in my experience.

    Hi Gregg, et al. I have nobody coming with me yet. I can take three or four people in a pinch in addition to myself. If you, Kris, and Emily want to come with me that would be great. I also have a park pass being old and all.

    I tried to change my RSVP to yes but it said I had to agree to the refund policy. Where can I find it?

    October 14

    • Kris M.

      When you click yes on "Are you going" it will bring up a pay now box. In that box is "agree to refund policy"
