Event Description

Join us on 4/20 day!

We will be camping again at Lake Solano County Park campground, which is technically in Winters, but somewhat closer to Vacaville. 

You'll need to try and reserve a site for yourself (and maybe your pal) in the range of sites from #39 to 45. That's the main VW area.

If those run out, then consider snagging sites 8,9,10 or 11. 

PLEASE SHARE YOUR SITE. Or don't. No worries.

This campground is easy to get to, has a swell nature center, fishing opportunities and has unabashed roaming peacocks. 

Saturday night will feature PANTRY-RAID CHILI!!


Important notes: PLEASE READ!

(1.) This campground LOCKS ITS GATES at 9:00 pm. If you do not arrive before they lock the gates, you will be camping outside the gate until the following morning.

(2.) Although this event occurs on 4/20 day, it must be pointed out that all Solano County Campgrounds are smoke-free and they're quite serious about that.

Discretion is nine-tenths of the law.



Look in your pantry. Grab only *ONE* 14 oz. (or so) can that matches the description on the list below.

Then, bring that can (along with a bowl and spoon for yourself) to the camp out. We will add the contents of your contribution to a base of beef and onions.


Bring along one 14 oz. can of any of the things listed below:

Pinto beans
Red Kidney beans
White beans
Navy beans
Piquinto beans
Diced tomatoes
Diced tomatoes with Italian spices
Diced tomatoes with Jalapeños. 
Crushed tomatoes with Eye of Newt
Chopped tomatoes
Chili con carne
Chili with beans
Chili without beans
Ranch Style (tm) brand beans of any variety.

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

If bringing a can won’t work for you, then bring a loaf of pre-made Garlic bread or a scrumptious dessert. Or a bottle of wine. We like wine. Or firewood. We like that too. If that won’t work either, then just bring yourself, a bowl, a spoon and an appetite.

Hang in there, Bryce & Kathy, someone will pop up and share.

I hear there might be a bit of room in site #39 per my hubby.  We’d love to join in and we can bring an extra large stock pot.  Comes with a can opener.  Look forward to seeing everyone, Kathy & Mike

We need to use the stock pot, but please don't give away my half of our campsite!

The first 20 attendees will receive a spiffy refrigerator magnet!

I'll share if needed.

The site's a little ways from the soup kitchen though.

It's right in peacock town though.

Speaking of food, if there's anything in cans that's left over, I'll do what i ded last year: take them to the Sacramento Food Bank.
