You can put just about anything you want in there so long as you don't overlap your neighbors.

Looks like my pop up and two 10X10 easy ups will fit in the 35ft space.

Cool. You can keep your tow vehicle in the general parking area. Unless you have a need for something off site you won't need it for the weekend

I prefer to put my camper in the campground so I have power. Tow vehicle is parked on the flight line for airplane storage at night.

Normally I would agree with you. But my little pop up has a stand alone solar power set up. I have dry camped for 13 days with no problems My water supply should be fine for the 4 days.

Peaceful Valley is (as the name says) in a valley. The sun sets behind the flight line fairly early. I don't know how adversely that'll affect you, but you will lose direct sunlight fairly early in the evening (can't remember the mornings too well..takes a while for the fogs (meteorological and hangover) to burn off).

Ok, Thank you for the info. I will make sure I am ready for the lesser amount of sunlight.

Andrew, I am not trying to dissuade you. I'm from a fairly flat part of NJ, so I realize how much even relatively small ridges can surprise folks -- "Gee, it's only 6. Where'd the Sun go?".

If you have power problems, don't hesitate to talk to the other folks at NEAT. It's a very 'family' oriented group, ready to help out each other.

It all good. Most of my packs are small. 3s 3300 and smaller. I will just make sure I plan ahead on my charging. My biggest concern is being able to power my C-PAP machine at night. Everything else I can work with .

That's the beauty of NEAT - the fun goes all day and night. That's why I always stress to folks making the trip to Downsville that they camp onsite - you'll miss at least half the fun if you leave at dark. Plus the fun after hours is so varied - from night flying (awesome!) to hanging with everyone on the flight line, to checking out the action in the various vendor and club tents all along the flight line.

Speaking of the club tents, the JCSF big top will be up and running early in the week before the show officially kicks off Thursday. We'll be among all the early arrivals who celebrate NEAT Week. We'll have movies and camp fires going so feel free to stop by. Plus we'll again be hosting the Radian Games on Wednesday and the Vapor Games on Thursday night so be sure to come by and either compete or just hang out and join the fun. It's going to be a blast!

Me too, Andrew. I got my C-PAP April 2015 and love how it helps my sleeping -- no more snoring, no more apnea, no more wife waking me to tell me I stopped breathing!

If you have any issues with not being able to get your C-PAP battery backup charged, just stop by our trailer (Swift SLX, with two beagles) and we'll figure out a way to keep at least that charged.
