It is forest, so no concrete parking slab or grass ( except in meadow) It is a great place, has a playground for kids and a bar for big kids, a rustic store and sometimes restaurant. The river is close by and at this time of year is very good for fishing, spots of river are good for letting the kids get a bit wet. There is a nice hike up to kennedy meadows for some good flyfishing. If your liking is for the hot of the delta in September, I think Sue is gonna be the one to set up for that.
I like this idea. Did you start a new thread?

Hi Robert,

I am going to start a thread as soon as the resort is staffed for the year, so that when people call for a res, there is actually someone there to answer the phone. Should be posted by then end of May though. It is a really nice place.

The weather has been so lovely here, 70's for multiple days = summer. Had a half an inch of rain last Thursday, but old Sol is smiling today. The fog hasn't arrived yet, so the weather is perfect.

p.s. on our way to Tucson, going to parking lot camp at the LazyDays there (formerly Beaudry) for a few days before daughter number one gets hitched. Not sure where we'll camp on the way back. Suggestions halfway between Tucson and coastal NorCal? Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura was really a cool place to boondock as we went south and east last trip. It's a definite possible.
Hi Julie and Bob,

Doran Beach always seems too busy for us....and, often, too windy. There are definitely advantage....you have access to both the bay and a beautiful ocean beach. We usually stay at Westside Campground (also a Sonoma County Park), on the other side of the bay, near Spud Point Marina. We keep talking about trying out Doran....but, we always seem to end up at Westside....where the front row of campsites is right along the edge of the bay (when the tide is in), less wind, no fog horn, and walking distance from the Spud Point Crab Company (best crab sandwiches and crab cakes EVER!).

Try both....they both have their pros and cons....and, both beat the Sacramento heat!

Cheers

William Porter

Dear NorCal friends. I have some sad news. Those privy to the Sacramento region news broadcasts may have learned of a tragic boating accident to one of our Airstream friends, Bill Porter. He did not return from a day of fishing at a nearby lake last Wed. His kayak and belongings have been found. As of this writing he is still missing and the search is still in progress. Family, friends and co-workers are surprised that a day in a kayak would present any problems to Bill as he was in top physical condition, an experienced kayaker and a 'excellent' Sac City fireman. My neighbor, Assistant Fire Chief, Lloyd Ogan, Bill's boss, confirmed to me that Bill is the Airstream friend that I know. There obviously will be an investigation once his body is found. Bill and his wife (AirForum name 'wppii') attended several Casini and JRRV rallies. I am including the link to one of the news service story. Our thoughts go out to his wife, Susan and son.

Bill

Still no word, I will update when I know something. My neighbor is invloved in the investigation and is rightfully silent. However, his wife, because I know Bill, did tell me a little but I know that I should be silent also.

There is no more news on this story. Strange.

I'm thinking the potential outcome could be disturbing.

Still holding out prayer that there will be closure for the family. Soon.

Bill

Here is the latest 'no news'. I just asked my neighbor, the fire chiefs wife. I asked if anything has progressed with the search. 'Not much. The searchers are fairly certain of where Bill's body may be but the sonar wasn't successfull as there are some large boulders at the bottom of that deep part of the lake. Divers found the visability very poor'. She said that 'they may bring in some professional deep water divers next week. They would have more sophisticated equipment'. I asked why wouldn't his body have risen on it's own? She said it could be 'entangled in the rocks and Bill had very little if any body fat also'. I asked if she has heard of any possibility of foul play. 'Nothing strong suggests anything but Bills body may hold an answer.....and the water is very cold at that location so that may be an investigative advantage'. I told her that I had several friends of Bill online asking if I knew anything that I could pass along. She says that she will have Lloyd (the Chief) call me with whatever he can add. I commented that I find it a little odd that the media hasn't pressed for more information. 'they are asking and as far as she knows from her husband there won't be much to ad until his body is located.
