XJ Picnic 8/21 at Fiesta Island, Mission Bay, San Diego

Come one come all!!!

It's the Umpteenth Annual SoCalXJ Summer Picnic, and all are invited! Bring your XJ if you can, but just show up and have a great time!!

Figure 10 a.m. til 0-Dark:30, with some of us down there early to reserve a stretch of beach along Fiesta Island right about here:
http://tinyurl.com/SoCalXJPicnic
Just south of the cut-across "short" loop access rd. You can MapQuest/Google/GPS "1510 Fiesta Island Rd, San Diego, CA 92109".

Bring chairs, bikes, Frisbees, kids, friends, friendly dogs (it's an offleash area), food, umbrellas, EZ-Up canopies, RVs, suntan lotion, beach toys, water toys including boats & jet skis, and a willingness to come out & enjoy the day. You do NOT have to show up in an XJ, but it looks really cool when they're all lined up!

Firewood is welcome, but no painted/treated/nailed wood, and no pallets

Alcohol is not allowed (on any beach in San Diego, these days)
Glass containers of any sort are not allowed
Mysterious fluids in plastic containers are known to appear at times
Discretion and moderation are encouraged--law enforcement does patrol

You don't have to bring any food to share, but it's fun to do so. You can grill if you bring a BBQ, and there are fire rings.

If you want to bring something to share,

Hope to see you there!! And yes, folks DO drive down from the greater LA area and the desert to come play with us!

RV's are definitely allowed, get there kinda early to get room. They are allowed pretty much anywhere on the island.

I am looking forward to being down there this year and hopefully staying a little bit longer.

No overnight camping there. There are places not too far to camp though.

Re: XJ Picnic 8/21 at Fiesta Island, Mission Bay, San Diego

Plenty of parking on the sand, but yes, try to get there early if you want flat packed sand to park on. Kevin & Mark usually bring their RVs, and there's usually a camper or two.
No overnight camping, everyone has to be off the island by 10pm, but if the local campgrounds are full, my ex's street is fairly flat (7-8 mi away), or there should be street parking around my area (12 mi away), or in my unroofed parking spot (short RV <22 ft ).
I hope everyone can make it! It's always a good time =). I planned my summer vacation around being back in time for it... that's a good time, right there!

Re: XJ Picnic 8/21 at Fiesta Island, Mission Bay, San Diego

well, was thinking of bringing the 5th wheel that way i can put the jeep inside along with bicycles, toys, fishing gear, ect. but it's 38' and with the truck it is close to 50'. probably too big to bring on the island. we are only about 30-40 minutes away, so i can get there first thing in the morning, and drive back home that night, but i dont want to hog too much room for all the other folks. only been on the island once many years ago. i think i may go check it out next week to get an idea.

Don't shoot me Carol, I've repaired myself enough in the last few weeks without adding gunshots to it.

Oh, those poor nuts...

And yeah, it wasn't me that clipped you, Cory! That was some crazy crap. No gunshots from me, I promise!

And yes, odds are good that one or both of my daughters will be there. Hey, we could turn it into a fundraiser for Lexa's Cheerleading squad!! Oh, wait, no, not with THIS crowd... I don't think they want to raise money all in dollar bills...
