This is #13! It's time to be back together again to consume food and make merry!
We are going back to Sandy Beach in Rio Vista, CA. This is our annual practice run and food fest before Thanksgiving. Reserve sites soon as they may go fast if the sport fishermen/women come back this year.
It's a pot-luck, and I'll be roasting a turkey on-site. Electrical outlets will be available for people with hot pots and such,
Party Central will be at site #4. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site).
Musical instruments are always welcome, particularly if accompanied by musicians.
As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.
A few more things: the reservation section of the park's web site is a bit dodgy right now, and senior discounts aren't on the menu there. If you qualify, go ahead and reserve your spot at the going rate, and make contact with the park by phone to arrange a refund of part of the fee. The point is to grab your spot first, and settle the bill later.
The second thing: Note that all reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the date, and no "first-come-first-served" sites are provided anymore. But if you're late, look for the people willing to share a spot and hitch up with them.
Third, all sites have electricity FOR FREE. Bring your electric heaters if you think you need them. (If you don't have one and need one, let me know and I'll bring one for you.)
Brett made a little video about what kind of adapter you need if you want to use the AC outlets that are at every site (FOR FREE!). Here it is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOF7aCUfwZ0
Lastly, be aware that there are wild critters (raccoons, feral cats, etc.) that will go into any open camper that you're not around. So be sure to keep your doors closed.

Looking for a space to share. Please let us know if there's one out there.
It looks like it's time to figured out who's going where (and who has space). I'm putting a question mark after those who might have a space to share.
4: JLT/ Cathi
9: David and Yolanda/?
11: Kris Hansen/?
And I see that Jane Lindsey and Gene Burris are on the attendees list but I don't have a space allocation for them.
Looking for a space to share.
I'm sharing #11 with Jane Lindsey. With all the sites sold out, I think the fisherfolk are going to be there this year

Is there a volunteer to share with Laura May?
My plans have changed since I booked my site back in June and I will not be attending after all. Scott and Karla and their dog are now the proud owners of Site 18 for this event. Have fun!
Sorry to miss you, WestyWoman.
It's time to be discussing who'll bring the bird this time. I'll still bring the Weber, but I hope that others more competent than me will be taking care of the acquisition and preparation. Any takers?
We are putting Laura into space #5 with Regis. But let's hope that we get another volunteer to host Randy and Melissa in their Frogmobile. Maybe Scott and Karla?
...Maybe. Karla is coming up later in the evening in a second vehicle. So if we can find a spot to park our Fusion, sharing could work. And they have to be OK with the dog.
