Not much can be said. OCTO is one of these shows where it's a gathering for me. Good times.

Last day at Buses by the Bridge

Come the morning, it was prepping time for the departure. Lucky for me, having my 71 Westfalia, it was an easy task loading up. I basically relaxed most of the time waiting for the rest to finish their packing. Once the raffle was done, we started to head out but were stopped by the Heilite Mafia for a group photo. Now that was a fun side attraction. Luis Ruiz and Daniel Wright, Boss & Under Boss of the Heilite Mafia, gathered up about 20 VW’s for a group shot. Nice pictures.  Once this was done, off we set towards Parker. We gas’d up our rides in Parker and made way to highway 62 and hit Rice Road – highway 177. A very scenic route. Prior to departing Chiriaco Summit, we said our good buys and ventured towards home. San Diego them, the tiny village of Pasadena for me.

In the end, this turned out to be not only a great event, but a very cool journey heading out to the event. If you ever have the opportunity to visit this show, do it! It’s worth it. There are tons of hotels walking distance from the campground.

Heilite Mafia at Buses by the Bridge

As most of you know, several clubs were on hand at this year’s BBB event. But one organization stuck out like a sore thumb. A group which was only rumored to have exist? But they were there in large numbers and flying their colors. THE HEILITE MAFIA. This club or organization whose activities, events, and inner functioning are concealed from non-members. A club who may or may not attempt to conceal its existence.  They previously hid their activities and memberships but maintain a public presence. Now they are out in the open and are rumored to be heavily connected with another well known organization, THE BARNDOOR MAFIA!

 

When it comes to the Heilite Trailer world, these are the guys to talk to. Ring leaders, Luis & Daniel, run this group of elite vintage camping enthusiast.  A majority of the group hail from the High Desert of Southern California, but have members spread out through Southern California. A small organization but an elite and knowledgeable group they are.  Expect and don’t be surprised when their numbers grow and are seen more often at shows, especially the camping events.

 

 

Be your own judge and inspect their camp area ...............
