You got me all exited until I actually looked at what thread I was reading.

June 24th!

And I take it this is for the complete opening, not a partial opening?

I had previously guessed July 1 on another forum. I'm sticking with that.

7/2 ... at around 9 in the morning ... (that does NOT include fries being ready at the grill though ... hahaha)

anyhow, if I'm right, ...

please submit:

a week's complimentary stay at the Ahwahnee;
passes for 4 to Half Dome;
2 complimentary lunches at the TM grill;
One free fill-up at the Crane Flat gas station; (inc one large coffee to go)
a raft-for-two pass on the Merced with the outfitter of my choice;

and, ... aw what the heck .. just toss in a horse ride for the halibut ...

June 23rd


As of yesterday (May 25th) they are at Olmsted point and 3 1/2 miles west of Tioga Pass. I guess places like Tuolumne Meadows are fairly easy to plow?

I guess maybe 1 mile a day to plow and in 2 weeks, there will be less snow to plow.

The exact time that the NPS declares, not before, not afterward.

Kinda like the rapture. Don't declare something you know little about or else you might look like a fool.

Except that the probability of the Tioga Road opening is greater than zero.

18 June...using a variety of factors for my unedumacated reasoning...

(My first prediction a few months ago was 11 June...)

If they are 3.5 miles west of Tioga Pass and close to Olmsted Point, that is about 15 miles (just a guess) ? How many feet can they plow a day? Of course, they have other things to do besides just plowing. Is half a mile reasonable?

The second week in July. The 8th would tie for the latest date. That was in 1933.

Congratulation, you were the closest! (I didn't count those who edited their response after the official announcement.) wink

I wasn't too far off myself, only off by 44 hours. smiling smiley

... sigh ...

well, once again, I was way off ...

should'a known .. having already been way wrong with predicting the Celtics this season ...

I didn't even pic Miss USA right ...

not to mention the rapture ...

which was a big letdown ... we're all still here ... inc. Miss USA (from California) ... Celtics (though w/o Shaq now) ... and even the freshly unrobed Tioga road ...

last time I bet with you guys ....
