down the camp road, and a pick-up truck with N.F. workers is heading out. I wave them over, and ask if it might be possible to camp even though it isn't open. They tell us that the official opening day is tomorrow, and suggest that we ride in, and ask the hosts if it's OK with them. Well, the hosts couldn't have been nicer. They welcomed us, pointed out the best site, were genuinely interested in our travels... really good people! Neither of us was looking forward to scrambling to find a place to sleep, so letting us stay was really awesome. Thanks, guys!
