I somehow missed this post. Welcome to FiberglassRV Jeff BTW: there's a gathering of eggs that meet in September in Nothern California. That's a great time to meet with like-minded people and put faces to some of the names you'll see here.

Good luck on the egg hunt!

Unfortunately that Northern Cal meet has been pretty northern. Like halfway between LA and Vancouver. I think we need to get something going in the SF Bay. Maybe Big Sur or something?

Regards,

Matt

Yes, that's the one I meant. Burney's 600 miles from LA, 700 miles on from Burney on to Vancouver, BC. But I don't think we saw any Canadiens last year.

Regards,

Matt

So start one. It's not hard. Pick a place and a date and let folks know the charges for camping. You don't have to organize anything. Truly. I'm the queen of Not Organized Gathering(s).

Hey Matt,

Dillon Beach isn't any closer for the Canadians. Takes me 3 1/2 hours to Dillon, so what if it's in Mid. Nor Cal. Depends on your subjectivity.

It's a matter of attending the gatherings you choose. I happen to attend more of the Oregon ones than any other. The closest being 9/10 hour drive. Have Scamp will travel.

As far as Jeffery, he's on my side of the Bay. Don't take offense I'm just babbling.

So Jeffery, I was going to suggest you wander over to the Quartzsite gathering in 3 weeks to see all the various fiberglass trailers in attendence. I re-read your post and realized that you are not in El Centro but rather El Cerrito.

There's lots of us little trailers within a 100 miles of you and we have had gatherings in the last number of years, at most we only had a half dozen in attendence. The Burney Falls gathering was the largest I've seen to date. That would be Northern California gatherings.

Jeffrey, good luck with your trailer search. It took my wife and I almost 2 years to find our used 1993 Scamp. What helped was using crazedlist.org : search craigslist like a madman, where you can search multiple craigslist locations at once. I was searching within 300 miles of the bay area, almost daily. We finally found one for sale in Visalia, were quick to respond to the ad, and picked it up the next week Another site is SearchTempest - The EASY way to search Craigslist which does mostly the same, but is more commercial and searches eBay as well.

Good luck and if you want to check out our Scamp this weekend, stop by Dillon Beach.

Jeff, what kind of dogs do you have? We have 2 pugs, and they are one of the reasons we got the camper---so we could take them with us!

We have a Toy Fox Terrier and a rescue Mutt that is almost the same size, 10lb & 14lb.
BTW can anyone post a link of the actual campsite/resort ? Dillion Beach and Lawson
Landing are two different spots. I haven't been to either in a few years so my memory of the area is hazy.
