Camping with the Elks

About a year and half ago I joined the Simi Valley Elks and became a member of their camping club know as the "Happy Wanderer". Every second Tuesday of the month we have a monthly meeting to discuss current Elks and club business affairs and to go over the current camping scheduled for the next few months. Jean and I have managed to participate in a few of the scheduled camp-outs;  like Newport Dunes and Santa Barbara.

Well it was finally my time to step up to the plate and become a Wagon Master. So I organized a camp-out at Leo Carrillo State Park. I contacted the Sector office and pulled a special event permit for us to dry camp at the North Beach day use area for a few nights in February.

When the time came to go camping, I had 13 rigs make the outing. Everyone who attended had a great time and the weather was outstanding.
