Hello,

I was wondering why there are not any Nor. California rallies or get togethers. I just got a little Fiberglass trailer called a Space Master, looks like a spaceship with a popup tent on it. Pretty cool. Anyway looking for other like minded fiberglass campers out there to maybe get together on a camp anywhere in Nor Cal. Anytime is good for me.

Thanks

Hubby and I would be interested joining a 'Northen California' rally. I could think of several campgrounds that would make a good meeting place. We're in the heart of Santa Clara Valley with our 2009 Casita.

Have never understood why we're refered to as 'Northen California'. To me Northern California starts 'north' of San Fransisco.

As soon as I get the Stream back together Connie and I are interested - Seven.

Wow what great replies. I got the whole NorCal SoCal CentralCal CentralCoastCal JeffersonStateCal and a couple other CALS all answered. Now we just need to know is it FRISCO or San Francisco? I know that will stir the pot with some of us out there.

Fun to hear from all of you. I think I will try and put something together in the next couple of months. I am out this weekend on the maiden voyage of my little SPACEMASTER. Funny story already. We my wife and I were asleep around 1:00am the bed fell in under us. I guess the table top that fits in there is a bit small and can move so in we drop to the middle. So I set it back up and wham one more time. About them is when I told my wife. Can you spell EBAY! She had a chuckle and I figured out that I needed to put the table at the bottom end of the bed and the other boards at the top. Wah lah, perfect bed. So EBAY has to wait.

I also forgot to put the jack stands down in the back of the trailer and unhooked it from the truck. So when we got it the back went down and so did we. I had to jump to the front real quick and bring it down, go set up the stands and once again we were good. LIVE AND LEARN yikes.

My wife seems to like the camper and she does not really like camping, so so far so good. The camp site I am at has internet (which is funny I think) but hey I am entertained at least. It is a place in Arnold by Calaveras State park (full this weekend) called Golden Pines. I would recommend it as a good spot to come to. Not great, but pretty good. Nice people, decent ammenities. Our site has power and water. We are hooked up to the power.

This camper is like a combination of a teardrop trailer and a westfalia volkswager camper and an egg camper. What a goofy kinda combo, but it is working for us so far. I will post pics when I get back.

You all were right about weekend camping in CA. Crazy to get a reservation. Especially weekends and holidays. The weekdays are hard for my wife as she is working. I am the lazy one out of us both.

Any suggestions for sites. I will also check out the scamp site on yahoo and maybe join up at Dillon Beach.

Thanks. We get the funny stares at our camper and many comments for sure. Lots of fun.

Rick,

As a native of the SF Bay Area (even went to Giants' games in Seal Stadium) I can uncatagorically state that only foreigners, out-of -staters and some ignorant Angelinos would ever say "Frisco" when referring to The City.

Don't get me wrong, some of my best friends are Angelinos...

, Very Much....

To us who live in Oregon, Northern California is like Redding north. Gina mentioned several great campgrounds near Dunnigan area that we have wanted to try but haven't. Ellen and Berry probably know of some great campgrounds further north. We just can't think of the San Francisco area as northern Cal. But if you plan a campout remember that snow comes early to areas near the border. We would be interested too if work doesn't get in the way.

Thanks for the response. Where do you think would be a good place for us Nor Cal group to camp? I don't know the camping scene very well, so I am open to suggestions. It would be fun to try something in Sept. Even if just a few of us show up that would be a good start. I suspect we should get a half dozen together based on some of the responses here.

Thanks

Hi all, I'm new to the site too. My wife and I just bought a 13' Scamp last week. I grew up in the little town of Valley Ford, just 7 miles from Dillon Beach. We're still in the SF bay area and we'd love to join you for a campout at Dillon Beach or somewhere else. Just spent our first weekend in the Scamp up on the Yuba River and it was awesome!!

**LA is southern CA and anything north of there is Northern CA. And I'll stick to it until my dying day.**

Joy - we are in Galt, and I agree. Southern Calif is THEIR side of the Grapevine.

Not sure where Northern Begins... Bakersfield SEEMS too far south. But B'field is not SO-Cal either.

Oh well.....

Roger,
Well, to answer the No./So. California question, it's because we don't tend to segement the state into multi sections just No. and So.

The only people that call the central portion central is the TV folks. I'm from Monterey county and was always in Northern CA until the TV folks started calling it Central CA.


But the basic premise is:

LA is southern CA and anything north of there is Northern CA. And I'll stick to it until my dying day.


Rick,

On topic, why don't you start a rally? All you need to do is pick a place, not on holidays, hopefully not on weekends as it's hard to get into most places on weekends. If you do pick a weekend make sure we can make reservations, not a first come first served place. There is no need to make it a big deal just a simple get together.

I've held a rally at Dillon Beach north of Point Reyes for a number of years. I haven't advertised it on this site because I really didn't want it to get too big. I post it on the Yahoo Scampers site. Any way, I have PM'd numerous people from this site and to date none have come. So I continue to post on the Yahoo site and even on that site people in CA are looking for rallies but don't ever come to Dillon. We can't figure it out and I've stopped trying to.

So just pick a place. I'll come if I can and I'll let my regulars at Dillon know.

Congrat's Wilder! I am sure you guys are gonna enjoy your new Scamp. But you need to also post your purchase in the general chat forum, so everyone can say welcome and congrats! Plus add some pic's. ( we never get tired of pic's of fiberglass)

I'm in suburban Sacramento with a 13' "USS Egg-terprise" and a Camry tow vehicle. I'm up for a weekend rally, just give me a couple weeks' notice. I'm also on the Yahoo Scampers list and really liked the Rio Vista suggestion--there are hookups there, as opposed to Dillons Beach. But Dillons is fine, too, although I haven't been there in probably 10 years.

if you were closer to Fresno you might get more So cals there. Not trying to add to the politics of what is south/north and central. I have lived in them all.

In looking at campgrounds I find many that have no hookups. What are the preferences for each of you. Does it have to have hookups or are you all up for dry camping. Most has showers and toilets, etc. but not hookups. Would that be ok or would everyone prefer hookups?

I am hoping to have something set up for the 3rd weekend in Sept. Still looking around for a spot. Any help would be great. I know the Dillon beach site is already been mentioned (nice scenary)and Rio Vista (more like a nice parking lot but has hookups etc) I am looking posibbly at Fallen Leaf at Tahoe. Never been there, but lots of space no hookups.

Generally, I prefer hookups. If we're dry camping, though, then any number of places are nice. Here's one I tried several years ago, not far from Auburn....

Fishing, pedal boats, swimming, etc.
