2018 Willys America Open House and BBQ

• CATEGORIES: Event, Features

Willys America’s open house is this coming weekend (Saturday July 14th 10am to 4pm). Dan Bowermaster will be leading the caravan from San Francisco to the event in Cazadero. I *thought* I’d be attending it this year with Ann and my daughter Kasia (who is completing an internship in Walnut Creek this summer), but complications forced me to put it off again this year.

    We drove out there in my 3A and yeah, it was pretty cool. BBQ burgers for lunch, got a Willy’s America T-shirt and got to check out all kinds of cool rigs. I was in a caravan with 3 MB’s on the way out there. (Been there, done that, AND got the T-shirt. literally) 🙂

    It was a great time. Thanks to everyone who joined the csravan as well as too Willys America for hosting. I’ll likely lead it next time too. Hopefully the Traveller will be running then.

    If anyone from out of the area would like some local travel tips for next year, Dave had my email. There is a lot to do and see in the Bay Area.

    Thanks Dave. There is one less stop this year since the overlook on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge is closed to everyone but buses. So here is the plan:

    Stop 1: 8:15 am – 8:30 am, 593 Martin Luther King Blvd, San Francisco (https://goo.gl/maps/MBvKRneUUuE2). This start is a safe and low traffic spot to meet in Golden Gate Park, basically a few hundred feet north of 19th Avenue and Lincoln Way in San Francisco. We can safely meet there and then leave by heading north on Park Presidio through the rest of San Francisco. There is also a gas station on the SE corner of 19th Avenue and Lincoln way if you need to fuel up.

    Stop 2: 10:00 am-10:15 am, McDonald’s parking lot in Petaluma. (Exit west on 116/Lakeville St. and look for McDonald’s).

    Stop 3: noon, Willys America, Cazadero. Enjoy all of the Willys and great food.
