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.

John LaTorre, did you pay for the extra vehicle (mine)?

Comment by Wendie Wu on March 4, 2021 at 9:22am

FYI (for the list), Beulah is my van's name.  If another person comes with me it will be hubby Hank.  ;-)

And for the chili, that's one can per VW, yes?

Comment by Joe on March 4, 2021 at 9:54am

Yes. One can per van. (No fuss per bus?)

Correct name noted.

Comment by Wendie Wu on March 4, 2021 at 9:56am

Thanks.  I like it.  I really wish this platform let us thumbs up a reply.  

Comment by John LaTorre on March 4, 2021 at 12:11pm

Hi, Diane! No, I didn't pay the extra vehicle fee. You can pay that to the Rangers when you get there.

Comment by Kathleen on March 8, 2021 at 9:02pm

I think I reserved #18 but I never got an email confirmation so I might need to call them.
