The airport is approximately a mile from the resort, and transportation is available both to and from the airport for those who do not wish to walk. Please bring your own tie downs.
Welcome to the new T18.net (Again!)
Welcome to Version 3.0 of the Thorp online community! Over the past year or so I've become increasingly frustrated with the platform the "main site" was running on. As the new Thorp Supply business gets up and running the two sites will be closely integrated thus I wanted a new and consistant look and feel across both sites. I plan to add more rich content to this site in the near future so stay tuned.
