Event Description

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 8,9,10 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, fishing opportunities and has unabashed roaming peacocks. 

Saturday night will feature PANTRY-RAID CHILI!!


Important notes:

(1.) This campground LOCKS ITS GATES at 9:00 pm. If you do not arrive before they lock the gates, you will be camping outside the gate until the following morning.

(2.) Although this event occurs on 4/20 day, it must be pointed out that all Solano County Campgrounds are smoke-free and they're quite serious about that.

Discretion is nine-tenths of the law.



Saturday at 11:00 am in the (TBA) Cornhole area. 

Practicing shall occur on Friday afternoon around beer:30

See Paul for more details.



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

Then, bring that can (along with 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 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 with Eye of Newt                               

Chopped tomatoes
Chili con carne                                                                             

Chili sin carne
Chili with beans
Chili without beans

Roadkill Chili 

Rotel tomatoes

Ranch Style (tm) brand 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 a loaf of pre-made Garlic 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 and an appetite.

Bruce, I'm a little confused.  Are you NOT coming afterall thus releasing site 19? Either way I need a spot. Like Joe mentioned I can pay you if you are going to be there Bruce. Thanks~Diana

He moved uptown. (Site #45) 

Comment by Bruce Kinzey on March 6, 2020 at 9:23am

My reservation was for Friday night through Monday (four nights - I'm coming from Vancouver, WA).  If you don't want all of those I can see if I can release just the ones you don't want, but I'll probably need to talk to someone there.  What nights are you planning to stay?

Bruce Kinsey (aka Uptown), I'll be there Friday-Sun. And by the way I'm so happy you're bringing your Cornhole game. I'm pretty good at this game, especially in an altered state, LOL!

Comment by Bruce Kinzey on March 6, 2020 at 11:39am

That's not me with the game, must be the other Bruce. 

I may be able to do this online, just drop Monday night and leave the rest.  I'll let you know!

Thank you Bruce~

Paul Yocum is bringing the game, possibly t0 be set up in site #42. If Bruce doesn't return from the islands soon, I may have to quarantine him Or tie him up at the edge of the park.
