Event Description

In celebration of 4/20!

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 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 9,10 or 11. And if those run out, there are lotsa other spaces.

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:

(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 near 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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

PANTRY RAID CHILI INSTRUCTIONS:

Look in your pantry. Grab a 14 oz. (or bigger) can that matches the description on the list below.

Then, bring along that can (and 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. There will be plenty. It will be supervised by Adults.

PANTRY RAID CHILI CONTRIBUTION OPTIONS:

Bring along one 14 -15 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
Chopped tomatoes
Rotel tomatoes
Chili con Carne
Chili sin Carne
Chili con Zarigüeya
Ranch Style beans of any variety

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

Please do NOT bring Lentil beans.

If bringing a can of beans won’t work for you, then bring corn bread, tortillas 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, an appetite and a new joke.

I snagged 44 because Cathi & Jack had already snagged 45! LOL.

It looks like I'm in 42. And will share, of course.

Comment by KampnKing on October 31, 2021 at 2:20pm

I just signed up for 42. Maybe that's why it's saying awaiting payment confirmation.

Hmmm...

Gotta hit that button quick!

Comment by John LaTorre on October 31, 2021 at 2:22pm

Well, we can share 42 if your payment doesn't go through.

We snagged site 9!

The website was a bit messed up this morning. I spoke to someone at the office when I landed on an error page and did not receive a confirmation email, but my card was charged. She said the website is like something designed in the 1980's and often has problems. She sent me my confirmation email. (I didn't mention that there was no internet in the 1980's).

I've had that problem, too. I didn't get a confirm, so I called Jamie at the number above and found that site 42 had not been reserved. So I reserved it and gave my credit card stuff, so I think I'm good to go. If my card's been charged twice, I can get the second charge reversed. And I just got the confirmation for at least one of them.

Looking for a share or we’ll reserve along the river.
