15th Annual OEBC SPRING PICNIC & CAMPOUT

 

This post needs to start off with a typical So Cali saying ……… WHAT AN EPIC WEEKEND!!! This camping VW show was more fun then any 3 shows put together! Seriously. Words cannot describe what a weekend everyone encountered. The positive feedback was astronomical. This event gets bigger and bigger each year. On Sunday alone, there were 471 aircooled rides present. By Saturday afternoon the camp ground was jam packed. Mad props to the Wolvereen, Corona Ryan Hously, Tiffany McDonald and the rest of the Orange Empire Bus Company posse. Without their hard work, this event would never take place. A well organized outfit.

 

Lets talk about the camping portion of this weekend. As I have mentioned before, this is my favorite weekend when it comes to VW’s. 3 days of camping, bbq’n and VW’s. So come Friday morning, I wake up with butterflies in my stomach and super anxious to collect Pück and head out to the park. Featherly Park is located in Yorba Linda, Orange County. It’s basically an RV Campground, but once a year it’s a VW campground. Once we arrived, we unpacked all of our gear, pitched our tent and sort out the necessities for a good camping weekend. While relaxing having a few pints …… comrade and Cuñado come rolling in. 5 minutes later, Maurice leads the rest of the Campbodians with Serg in the end.  Later that afternoon Dustin & Luiz Ruiz (both members of the up and coming HEILITE MAFIA organization) show up. Then, yes more, the German Folks roll in. Those guys hooked up those sweet little cabins towards the back.  Gradually folks start rolling in through the late afternoon. By sunset the bulk of the crowd was settled. It didn’t take much for our spot to get going once we arrived. The grills were on most of the day, filled with pollo, carne asada, ribs, trip tip and lula kabobs. Needless to say the pints being handed out left and right. Not much was left out to enjoy this weekend. And this was the first day.

 

I’d have to say to anyone who’s never been …………… make it out one day! You will not be disappointed.

 

Here is what the campsite looked like when we arrived.

This is a very nice original paint camper. I forget the camper company? Wasn't a typical one. The owner, Brandon, is in the works of redoing the camping interior. The inside of this bus is insane!! A true Cali bus.

BTW - it's an early 1967.
