Bodega Bay Camping

This happened back in September, but here are some shots from our annual camping trip to Bodega Bay.


I had that camping itch I just had to scratch. So I fired up the hibachi and grilled some dogs. I love this little thing. It’s a Lodge Sportsman. The first time I took it camping was down at the Sea Otter in Monterey. I came back missing a couple parts. I tried to replace them, but Lodge was still getting their back up foundry online. When it was ready, they called me and sent a couple of the parts over.

It’s back in business and I couldn’t be happier.



Our box of stuff from GoWesty showed up last night and we got to work. We ordered the following…

  • Curtains
  • Back door struts
  • Tabletops
  • Dashboard cover
  • Rearview and side mirrors
  • Replacement decals

We pretty much replaced everything but the decals, but ran out of daylight. It’s looking really tight now. I hope to get the new bumpers and trailer hitch installed this week. After that, about the only thing left will be some bigger tires down the road and some great camping supplies.

Our first real camping trip with the Westy is coming up. We’re going up to Bodega Bay in Sonoma county.
