Well, it's official. So far, we have these slots. As usual, let me know if you have the second half of your slot available for late-comers ... we may not have the park to ourselves this year.

John-You must have gone back and counted to figure out that it is the 8th Annual Fest. It goes like this:

2009-2010: Bothe-Napa State Park. They have dish washing stations with hot water. It rained a lot. It started out as a Fall Color campout organized by Big Blue's Driver. We ended up deep-frying a turkey both years courtesy of Joel's fryer.

2011-2013: Del Valle Regional Park. They also have hot water dish washing stations. It also rained a lot some years. At one of these campouts, we transitioned to John's Weber grill for the turkey. We also did a Friday pizza night at least once.

2014-2016: Sandy Beach Park in Rio Vista. No dish washing stations but we do have shore power, which is popular. It has not rained a lot. With the shore power, more crock pots appear on the table. One year we had cocktails with the fishing group and sampled some of their freshly caught fish. We haven't seen them since.
