Welcome to VW Camper Family. For the best use of this site, be sure to look at - and join - the groups. I see you are from California. Perhaps the Gold Country Campers is a group you would be interested in.

 

Glad to have you here.

Regarding the Sugarloaf Ridge Campout:

 

If you can do it (and not get charged for it), try to add me as a second vehicle to your slot. Otherwise, we'll just sort it out when we all get there. What complicates things is that the park doesn't assign you a specific campsite until you get there, but I expect that Ralph will tell the rangers how many people we have coming, and ask to have a group of adjacent campsites set aside. We'll see.

Hilda and I were sitting around having a cup of coffee and was commenting on how great it was to be with you and Gene at Rio Vista for the Thanksgiving warm up.  A bit windy but all in all a great time.  Meeting your Mom and Niece was a treat.  Looking forward to Thanksgiving and enjoy hanging out with you.  Good times.
