Our annual escape from Superbowl Madness. It will be our usual set-up .... wine, food, companionship (bring the wine and bring or buy the wood). Also, musical instruments are welcome, and maybe we can jam a little.Friday night is pizza night ... bring your little Coleman camp ovens or use ours, and make and bake an 8" pizza. (You provide ingredients, of course.)Saturday will probably bring the return of our culinary potluck/contest with anything eligible that is usually served in a bowl…See More

Hello Gene.  My name is Rich Ellis.  Reside in Livermore.  I would like to share your site on Friday/Saturday.  Wife and daughter will be with me Friday night.   I'm solo on Saturday night.  Let me know if this will work.

Hi Gene, Don't know if you are back from Finnon yet but thought I would give this a try.  Am asking if you would be will to share you site for Friday night only.  If that is possible, Great.  I left a friend request on your page, that is the only way I can connect with you, but hopefully I am sneaking through the back door by using this post from Rich.  Hope he does not mind.

Let me know when you can.

Kenz and I would LOVE to volunteer our time and services to SyncroFest this year! We also have a YouTube series about full time vanlife and we'd love to make an episode about SyncroFest! Let us know of we can help co-create an outstanding event with y'all! Thanks!

Hi Gene,

I think I saw a post that you installed a solar unit on your camper. I am wondering what you bought?

I have a 2001 Eurovan camper. I use to have a 1981 Vanagon Camper. The idea of a solar unit is intriguing to me. 

Thanks for your help.
