Annual Soup Or Bowl Campout at Sandy Beach Park, Rio Vista, CA

Our annual escape from Superbowl Madness. It will be our usual set-up .... wine, food, companionship (bring the wine and bring or buy the wood). Also, musical instruments are welcome, and maybe we can jam a little.Friday night is pizza night ... bring your little Coleman camp ovens or use ours, and make and bake an 8" pizza. (You provide ingredients, of course.)On Saturday, the legendary 'Soup or Bowl' competition will take place once again! Here's how it works: Prepare a batch of something hot…See More

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

Hello Gene.  My name is Rich Ellis.  Reside in Livermore.  I would like to share your site on Friday/Saturday.  Wife and daughter will be with me Friday night.   I'm solo on Saturday night.  Let me know if this will work.

Hi Gene, Don't know if you are back from Finnon yet but thought I would give this a try.  Am asking if you would be will to share you site for Friday night only.  If that is possible, Great.  I left a friend request on your page, that is the only way I can connect with you, but hopefully I am sneaking through the back door by using this post from Rich.  Hope he does not mind.

Let me know when you can.

Kenz and I would LOVE to volunteer our time and services to SyncroFest this year! We also have a YouTube series about full time vanlife and we'd love to make an episode about SyncroFest! Let us know of we can help co-create an outstanding event with y'all! Thanks!

Hi Gene,

I think I saw a post that you installed a solar unit on your camper. I am wondering what you bought?

I have a 2001 Eurovan camper. I use to have a 1981 Vanagon Camper. The idea of a solar unit is intriguing to me. 

Thanks for your help.
