Good News & The Other Kind
The good news is the recent rains have eased our
concerns about the drought.
The other kind of news is the Woods Valley campground
manager called Pete Haak, our Wagon Master, and
advised we NOT go forward with the weekend's campout.
He sighted mud, ruts, puddles of water and more mud.
Not much chance drying out due to the many shade trees
and cold, cloudy weather. First time this has happened in
The Garden Grove Elk Lodge RV camping club, the Elk-Enders, is
largest single organization (about 100 members). We have about 12
to 14 outings a year, most on the 4th weekend. Any RV from a tent
trailer, to a fifth wheel, to a Class A, B, or C 45 foot long motorhome
is welcome. Our annual dues are outrageous at $15.00 per year.
We camp at facilities all over So Cal within 200 miles, usually
within 120 miles. We have a lot of fun playing some games and doing
fun things (Ramona Play, Reagan Museum, Wine tasting tours, Casino
night at Vista Lodge, Annual Elk CHEA Rally, Fillmore train).
Some of our outings are at AAA campgrounds and some are free when
we go to the DESERT. Twice a year, usually in early March and November,
we have our do-it-in-the-dirt. November is during Veterans Day weekend.
We meet in the Lodge room on the first Wednesday of every month
at 7:30 PM. Join us at a meeting.
All of the Elk-Enders welcome new members for just
$15 dues a year. All you need is a recreational vehicle and a desire
to have fun. If you do not own one, consider renting one and join
us for our next outing. Check the calendar on www.elk-enders.org
for events throughout 2014 and 2015.
