This is #13! It's time to be back together again to consume food and make merry!
We are going back to Sandy Beach in Rio Vista, CA. This is our annual practice run and food fest before Thanksgiving. Reserve sites soon as they may go fast if the sport fishermen/women come back this year.
It's a pot-luck, and I'll be roasting a turkey on-site. Electrical outlets will be available for people with hot pots and such,
Party Central will be at site #4. Bring food, wine, and wood (although wood may also be available on-site).
Musical instruments are always welcome, particularly if accompanied by musicians.
As usual, I'll share my spot with another camper, and encourage you to to the same.
A few more things: the reservation section of the park's web site is a bit dodgy right now, and senior discounts aren't on the menu there. If you qualify, go ahead and reserve your spot at the going rate, and make contact with the park by phone to arrange a refund of part of the fee. The point is to grab your spot first, and settle the bill later.
The second thing: Note that all reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the date, and no "first-come-first-served" sites are provided anymore. But if you're late, look for the people willing to share a spot and hitch up with them.
Third, all sites have electricity FOR FREE. Bring your electric heaters if you think you need them. (If you don't have one and need one, let me know and I'll bring one for you.)
Brett made a little video about what kind of adapter you need if you want to use the AC outlets that are at every site (FOR FREE!). Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOF7aCUfwZ0
Lastly, be aware that there are wild critters (raccoons, feral cats, etc.) that will go into any open camper that you're not around. So be sure to keep your doors closed.

My thanks to all the wonderful people who contributed food and music and good vibes to the event. You folks rock!
And a special thanks to Scott for driving me to Sacramento after the event. As many of you knew, I had a problem with the bus and had it towed to Kombi Haus while I followed towing the single-wheel trailer with my Sienna the next day.
