Event Description

In celebration of 4/20!

This time we will be camping at Sandy Beach County Park campground in Rio Vista.

(Lake Solano suffered significant fire damage and is currently undergoing regrooving)

You'll need to reserve a site for yourself (and maybe your pal)

AT LEAST TWO WEEKS IN ADVANCE because they changed the dang rules.

PLEASE SHARE YOUR SITE. Or don't. No worries.

Saturday night (4:00pm) will feature PANTRY-RAID CHILI!!


Important notes:

Although this event occurs around 4/20 day, it must be pointed out that all Solano County Parks are smoke-free and they're actually quite serious.  They also have a new Ranger who is all gung-ho. Discretion is nine-tenths of the law.



Look in your pantry. Grab only *ONE* 14 oz. (or so) can that matches the description on the list below.

Then, bring along that can (and a bowl and spoon for yourself) to the camp out. We will add the contents of your contribution to a base of beef and onions.


Bring along one 14 -15 oz. can of any of the things listed below:

Pinto beans
Red Kidney beans
White beans
Navy beans
Piquinto beans
Diced tomatoes
Diced tomatoes with Italian spices
Diced tomatoes with Jalapeños
Crushed tomatoes
Chopped tomatoes
Rotel tomatoes
Chili con Carne
Chili sin Carne
Chili con Zarigüeya
Ranch Style beans of any variety

Please do NOT bring Black beans. 

Please do NOT bring Garbanzo beans. 

Please do NOT bring Lentil beans.

If bringing a can of beans won’t work for you, then bring corn bread or a scrumptious dessert. Or a bottle of wine. We like wine. Or firewood. We like that too. If that won’t work either, then just bring yourself, a bowl, a spoon, an appetite and a new joke.

I will be in #14 starting the day before.

I'm in my usual #4, which is Tent-of-Doom ready if necessary. 

You know, if Ann Donahue shares my spot, we'll have two Dormobile Westies on the same slot! That way, if people over-drink and start thinking they're seeing double, you can say "Look over there! Right you are!"

Jack just got his call schedule for the next 3 months today and wouldn't you know it he is on call that weekend.  These cancellations are killing me!  Hopefully we will have a May or June campout : (

Comment by John LaTorre on March 1, 2021 at 4:25pm

May is traditionally Bus City. Negotiations are now underway to see if the site is still available.

As for Jume, that's usually Trainspotting, but the site evidently won't be open until late in the month. Stay tuned.

Also, Father's Day Weekend has a few of us traipsing up to Oregon for a VW campout north of Bend. But that's hanging fire as well. But if that doesn't happen, maybe we can make something work here.

Thanks John!  I think we signed up for both bus city and transporting last year but of course they didn't happen.  I will keep my eye out and fingers crossed
