4/20 campout at Lake Solano County Park

April 22, 2022 at 2pm to April 24, 2022 at 12pm
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

TrainSpotting 12, June 3-5, 2022 at Hallsted Campground, Twain, Plumas County, CA

The Historic Feather River Railroad route runs on the opposite side of the river from the campground. Trains climb and descend the grade at all hours-you will be falling asleep to the rumble of the diesel engines and the squeal of steel wheels on the tracks. If you have never driven through the Feather River Canyon, it is a real treat! The weather can be variable in June.For information on the Hallsted campground, the recreation.gov link is below:…See More

Brian!!!, Couldn't tell who it was in the picture. I have already read a few of your posts and didn't even know it was you. I plan to hit you up for camping suggestions on our next trip to the Sierras.

Met you at Maupin a couple of years back. Next time you're up here in Oregon, look me up and I'll show you some cool camping places. Love your videos, make some more.

We won't talk about motel 6. I was looking for you at Maupin this year, figured something came up. There's tons of camping up here and 99.9% of it is just out of this world, the other .1% is only just great. Plus there is always my place. Next time you head this way, let me know. There are so many place right around where I live. I really do like your videos, was in fact watching them again last night and am hoping you make a few more. Keep on camping !!!
