Bus City 2009 - May 15th through the 17th in Russian River...


I still have a few spots open for Bus City 2009. Join us along the Russian River at the Casini Ranch 22855 Moscow Road, Duncans Mills, CA 95430 (about 2 hours north of San Francisco).
It will be a bunch of VW bus owners hanging out and enjoying the buses and the people who drive them

Any VW bus or van in Northern California should probably be there. But you should enjoy camping. Very little racing to be done at the ranch...

$40 for the 2 nights. There is not really a 1 night option, though we could probably work something out. Cost covers the site. You are on your own for booze, water, food and Doritos. There is a store at the ranch, but there's no guarantee that they'll have the snacks you like so ome prepared.

1. Stumptown Brewery is nearby. Great back deck to enjoy lunch and a beer on.
2. The Pink Elephant. Looks like a crazy bar, but a great place for a cold drink and a game of pool (I haven't had the pizza, but everyone says it's great).
3. The town of Guerneville is close by.
4. The small town of Duncans Mills has some antique shops.
5. Canoe places are all over to rent canoes for a Russian River adventure.
6. Just up the road are some great Sonoma wineries
7. To the west a short drive, the Russian River dumps into the Pacific in the town of Jenner.
8. Can't get enough tie dye? Stop at the vendor in Rio Nido who sells homemade tie died stuff out of his old split window VW bus.
9. Sit back, have a Miller High Life, and enjoy the weekend with your bus friends.

Hey guys, thanks for coming forward and, a few of you are coming to Bus City! Still more space open!


Hope you make this an anual thing, my wife went to college at Sonoma State and talks of the Russian River with fond memories. I know she would really enjoy a camp like this once we get our '71 Westy done.


I sure had a good time. I was really impressed how well EP could belt out those Abba songs.
