Camping after Easter
« on: April 11, 2006, 09:05:59 PM »
I'm taking the Moose Creek Motorcabin out to Leo Carrillo Tuesday after Easter for 3 days. That's 10 milkes north of Malibu (20 miles north of LA), State Beach campground off Pacific Coast HWY in Southern Mexifornia. My wife, my 4 kids and 6 of there friends, the 3 dogs, (The cats, fish and birds are staying home) will be there, feel free to stop by if your crusing by. The hot dogs, taco's,  or burgers or cold cereal, or whatever I have for food your welcome to. We gave up on the beer and wine, makes me feel crappy the next day, so I guess we'll have coffee, water and soft drinks. They have a large day use parking lot as well as the overnight camping. So, where should I post this?

Looks like a great place to me Mike.   ;D

Little far for us to drive our Moose bus from Illinois, but it sounds like a great idea.  I know that area, should be a good time for busnuts & family.

Sounds like fun, but TAD (Tom and Donna) are taking off to Arizona for a 17 day jaunt on Apr 21.  Since I keep my bus in Covina, Leo Carillo is a nice place (if you can find a place to park next to the hill) that is close.  Maybe you'll do it again later in the year.  Have fun-I know I will getting out of Dodge.  Good Luck, TomC

well, if your going to AZ, stop off at the Grand Canyon Caverns , milepost 115, route 66 between Kingmen and Selgman. (You have to exit I 40 onto route 66 at one of those two cities). Good food, great RV camping, everything you need, if you like quiet. Have fun!

And MAK, speaking of The Caverns, what happened to the rally this year?  I was planning on going and disappointed that you didn't have it.  Now that would have given you some extra vistors.

I really like this new software, especially the pictures.  Its very nice to see the thumbnails of the buses for each poster!  And searchable archives too!

Camping after Easter will involve a sleeping bag in the back of the bus - seeing that there is not a bed in there yet.  Fake it until you make it   ::)  I will listen to you guys and dream for now.

I have heard it said, "life comes at you fast".  I didn't know it would be in the shape of a bus  :-)

Hey Danny nobody says ya can't use as is until ya gets it the way ya wants it! I know If I'm ever close enough to a bus nut gathering you'll see a fully lettered, seated, and video monitor equiped Setra in the crowd!  ;D I got 2 booths in the rear that make excellent beds with an ice chest and an ol' double couch cusion (I keep in a storage compartment just for the cause!), and some sheets an I got a camper! Not too mention sometimes I take naps while the people I take places are doing what ever it is they do! But hey that's the beauty of it. It's yours enjoy it your way! In whatever stage it's in! Now I might not try to use one in the middle of a roof raise, but then again I always have liked convertables! LOL! :D  ;D  8) Knuckle   8)  ;D  :D

Use the Bus at every stage of completion.

We started with sleeping bags and a porta potty :-\ and now we have a lot of half finished stuff and some beds.
