Schoolhouse Canyon Campground

4-7-13 update: I just confirmed with Ranger Chris that we are all set and a go for this year. He's excited to host us once again.

We are announcing the "Big Blue's Adventurer Award".

It's easy. This year, we'll note the miles on your bus in a spreadsheet. Next year, in 2015, when you come back to Bus City, we'll note the miles again. The one with the most miles wins each year.

Also Schoolhouse owns 30 acres across the street and a private beach just for the campground. It's just a five minute walk down the river trail. So bring your swim suits!

Hi everyone, last week at Bus City some of you asked about the signs on my Bay Window bus for MG Awareness. MG is a neuro-muscular disease called Myasthenia Gravis which leads to muscle weakness of a severe nature. It is poorly diagnosed with some patients taking ten years to get treatment. Contrary to published facts, it can develop at any age. Sadly doctors are taught it is rare and they are unlikely to ever see it ... which means that even when symptoms stare them in the face, the disease is not on their radar. You can read the personal story about why I drove almost 8000 miles from MA to CA at my website, Vehicles Working for Causes (vw4causes). I hope one day to organise an annual fundraiser and have other VWs drive and participate with me to raise money for AARDA to help people who at this point get very little help at all. It would mean a lot to me if you would like my VW's page on facebook. I set up the page 4.5 years now and I'm still trying to get to 2000 likes. Maybe you can help by telling your friends, too? Go to The YesWeCan CamperVan's page by clicking here. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. Carole :)

Thanks again for a great camping experience. Here's a couple of blog posts with lots of photos:

Many of you are in the photos.

Thanks especially to BIG BLUE for creating this event. I know he doesn't want to be labelled organiser, so creator it is!

So bummed I couldn't attend this year. I just couldn't get Jerry Bus running well enough to make the trip and ran out of money to throw at the problems I was having. Ha! Next year for sure. Thanks to everyone that shared pictures and stories.

Hi All,

So Sorry I didn't get to meet everyone this year - it was a late night stay one Friday, and a mid-day leave on Saturday.

Kim - we keep missing each other. Next time?

My pictures weren't as prolific this time, but here they are:


As usual, it was a perfect campout. Miss you all. Even those of you I didn't meet.
