We ate at Kozy Kitchen, which is a vintage sytle diner. The waitresses and the decor was very vintage. We headed out abt 9am towards the California border.

We drove a few hours south and stopped for a picnic lunch by a river. The riverbed rocks were very unstable and many of the VWs got stuck. It became an excercise in teamwork to rescue them. The lowered buses and ghia's were the worst victims.

It was a good time even though many got stuck. The breeze was cool and several people and dogs went swimming in the river.

By this time the lead bus, the one sponsored by Airhead Parts had broken 3 straps on the generator and needed a new alternator, fan and stand. Brad offered to fix it for them. That night we had a bbq dinner sponsored by a local shop. After that Brad went to work. Here are some images from the show.

We finished fixing the bus then made it to Del Norte State Park, Mill Creek Campground around 8pm. The campsite was beautiful with large redwoods and mysterious fog.
