Annual Soup Or Bowl Campout at Sandy Beach Park, on the Sacramento River

February 1, 2019 at 1pm to February 3, 2019 at 2pm
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

Join us on 4/20 day!We will be camping this time at Lake Solano County Park campground, which is technically in Winters, but somewhat closer to Vacaville. In an attempt to fend off giant motorhomes, we have locked up a whole row of desirable camp spots (with utilities!) in advance for our group.Most of these sites will be shared (two buses per site) and are in the range of sites #39 to 45. (In the unlikely event that we run out, then consider snagging sites 8,9,10 & 11)This campground is…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
