Our RV (Retirement Villa)

We picked up our Starcraft in September of 1999 and have had a blast pioneering it here in Southern California. No worries about "Winterizing", or "Cold Weather Camping" which makes year round camping in these parts a reality. A few of our favorite spots are Lake Cachuma near Santa Barbara, Chilao which is high country camping around 6000 feet up in the Angeles National Forest, and Lake Casitas where I can get my boat wet. Through the popup newsgroup I've found some interesting links not strictly limited to popups, but interesting just the same. Please enjoy this site, I hope it helps!

Smokey says "Only *you* can prevent talking bears!"

Speaking of bears...
A bear sleeps in his bear-skin.
He sleeps very warm I'm told.
Last night I slept in my bear skin,
and all I got was cold.
