If there aren't enough camping spots for everyone can we park in the overflow area by the trail head?

NO tenting on the TH area.  If you have an RV, get there early to get one of the RV hook ups.  If you only have a tent, don't worry, there is plenty of open space to camp.  If you are riding to the ftf every day, there is plenty of parking but I recommend parking by the Camping area since that is where all the guided FTF epic rides will start from.  That is where all the activity will be at.  The TH will be open for regular non-ftf attendees...

Yes tons of pop-ups every year.  You do have to get there early to get one of the first come first server rv's parking spots with electricity and water.  But don't be surprise to find 2-3 tents on the grass around you.  Is pretty much a set your tent up wherever you see an open spot.   It should be a lot of fun....

sounds like a blast....didn't make it last year unfortunately. Checked out some rates and can get a nice pop-up for just under $300 for the weekend, which sleeps 3-4 people, 5 if ya really know each other! Anyone thats interested ln spliting the cost on one or something let me know. Sure beats the hell out of sleeping on the ground in a tent.
