VW Camper Family

A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.

VW Camper Family

 

WELCOME
Hey everyone! If you found this, you found the online home of some very offline people - The VW Camper Family. People into VW bus and van camping. Get involved in the forum or check out the upcoming events. If you are into VW buses, vanagons, eurovans and camping, you should hang out with us. Really, you should.

HOW TO USE THIS SITE:
Post an event: Post an event that you are organizing or know about. People can RSVP right in the event. Please make any comments about the event on the event's page.

General Forum:
This area is for threads of interest to any VW camper.

Groups:
PLEASE JOIN THE GROUPS YOU ARE INTERESTED IN! THAT'S WHERE THE EVENT PLANNING HAPPENS! Groups can be created as specific needs come up. Things that are a help to all people, like "campground reviews", are perfect for this category. Or groups in a specific location.

RULES:
Just two so far:
1. Be nice.
2. Keep the content specific to VWs and camping. All other threads, photos, videos, etc will be removed.

JLT's Half Century of Cheating Death at TBA

April 3, 2015 at 1pm to April 5, 2015 at 2pm
On March 31, 1965, I almost died. Every day since then has been a day I didn't deserve. It's been a gift, and I've had almost fifty years of them. I'd like to celebrate these gifts with some other gifts I've been given over the years ... the friendships I've collected from some of the most wonderful people I've had the pleasure to know.  I don't know where this will be, exactly. That will depend on weather and how many people RSVP. But it will probably be within an hour's drive from Sacramento, more or less.I'll bring the Tent of Doom and wine. You bring wine, wood, and you sweet selves.See More

"Roughing it Easy"-Placerville, CA at Finnon Lake, Mosquito, CA

April 24, 2015 to April 26, 2015
SAVE THE DATE! "Roughing it Easy" theme based on the book of the same name by Dian Thomas. The name of the event is a double entendre, as folks would have the choice of cooking in a cast iron pan or dutch oven over an open fire (Roughing It) or walking to the Mosquito cafe and market for a meal with no cooking involved (Easy).Cooking over an open fire is a skill some of us have lost as we have migrated to specialized outdoor cooking gear. Let's get back to basics. Bring your cast iron skillets and dutch ovens and let's cook!There is a first-class disk golf course as well as a pretty reservoir at Finnon Lake. Yes, you can fish there, too!This date is tentative and will be firmed up later this year. Finnon Lake is at its best in the spring when rains have turned the hillsides green and filled the lake.See More
