Camping Extravaganza 2015

Camping Extravaganza 2015

Friday afternoon began BRS’s 3rd annual camping trip. Our camping veteran and leader, Chuck, arrived first to start establishing camp at Golden Gate Canyon State Park.

The first night we had 24 people and 5 dogs join us for dinner, festivities and camping. David prepared an excellent stew using only canned ingredients ranging from hominy to lentils. This Hillbilly Stew was followed by campfire roasted bananas topped with cinnamon, sugar and chocolate chips. Needless to say, everyone was satisfied.

Friday evening brought clear skies and a beautiful starry night. Some of us even saw a shooting star! We gathered around the campfire to tell stories, riddles and BRS trivia before heading off to bed. What are the first names of the three founding partners of BRS? Don, Ron and Russ!

Saturday morning we each made an “omelet in a bag” for breakfast. After 15 minutes in boiling water, our Ziploc bag egg mixture was ready to be eaten on its own or in a tortilla! As some campers left and more campers arrived, a group took off for the trail head to visit Panorama Point. The hike was full of beautiful wild flowers, and the view was worth every step. When we returned to camp, the site was full of latest day-visit arrivals and hot dogs and hamburgers were on the grill. A little bit of afternoon rain didn’t scare anyone away, and we soon gathered back around the campfire for Chuck’s chuck roast and grilled vegetables.


After more stories and a color-changing campfire, we packed up the food and headed to bed. Sunday morning we began to break down camp while Bill and his son prepared a delicious breakfast casserole. With our stomachs full and the campsite cleared, we parted ways and considered BRS’s third camping trip a success!
