Carla is a member of the Sassy Survivors Relay for Life Team and the Baker family has a food trailer that they use strictly for charity/fund raising purposes. They made arrangements to attend the Timberon Blues Festival so it seemed like a good idea to go along and help out. Their food specialty is the "Walking Taco" and they are delicious. These are made in half pound and one pound cardboard food trays and the ingredients are corn chips, taco meat, tomatoes, onions, cheese, lettuce, and sour cream with salsa and jalapenos on the side. They also sell ice cream, water, ice tea and sodas.
The festival was quite entertaining with ten or twelve bands taking part over the two days. There were also a number of vendor booths with interesting items for sale. Everyone was very friendly and there was plenty of conversation to be had. The music was very professional and had just about everyone tapping their feet, keeping the beat.
The Baker family is an amazing crew going from parents, Sue and Delton, daughters, Nicole and Jennifer, son-in-laws, Mike and Mike and grandchildren, Alexi, Andrew, Maddie and Mason. Everyone pitches in to help make their part of the event successful. They are a fun group to work and play with.
Doug and Carla stayed in the Sacramento River Lodge, a place that is trying to come back to life. It was alright, but let's hope they continue remodeling the place. There's a lot of room for improvement to say the least. Timberon is for all intents and purposes, a ghost town. However, they do have a small airport, a golf course with a restaurant and a Deli that isn't open on Sundays. It was good that we had packed fruit and cheese in the ice chest so a make do breakfast out under the tall pines on Sunday morning sufficed.

Thanks Doug, for taking all the great pictures.
This is all I have to say for now.
