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.)On Saturday, the legendary 'Soup or Bowl' competition will take place once again! Here's how it works: Prepare a batch of something hot…See More

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,…See More

Hi Kris, nice to meet you also and the some members of the camper family.... I came by to say good bye this morning, but by the time I woke up, half the campground was emptied! Lulu and I like to sleep in! We had a great drive home and I think I was smiling all the way home--(love my vanagon--the Omagon)--except when this knarly motorcycle guy drove by and cursed me for driving under the speed limit--oh well, guess I need to get used to that.....see you at the next campout!....  happy journey...Z
