Join us for the 18th Annual Buses by the Big Duck VW Campout from June 1st through June 3rd at Indian Island County Park and Campground in Riverhead, NY!
We'll be camping in a reserved group areas 2 and 4, on sites equipped with electric and water.
We never run out of room, and last minute arrivals are always welcome! Brings your bikes, bathing suits, canoes, and kayaks to enjoy the bay!

Friday's welcome-party theme is "Superheroes!" in memory of our friend Dave who passed since our last campout. Dave's VW's were all named after Marvel Superheroes like Ben Grimm, "The Thing"

While not required, if you know how many people will be in your group please consider RSVPing!

Remember, pot-luck is on Saturday evening followed by a group campfire!


Suffolk County Parks changed their pricing for groups in 2017.
The County now requires at least 50% of campers to have a Green Key - or, pay significantly higher pricing.
Since many of our guests are from Nassau County and New England (and non-resident pricing is now at $39/night!), in order to accommodate everyone while keeping site rates reasonable the following prices will be in effect again for 2018:
$30/night - Resident or Non Resident
While the current prices from Suffolk County are about $5 less per night (for a Suffolk Resident with a Green Key), each of us covering a little more helps to ensure that we don't disinterest campers from beyond our quaint little island.
Your CASH-ONLY payment will be collected by Mike at the group site. But, please check in at the front gate upon your arrival to the campground.

Pets are allowed in the campground, but must be licensed, and vaccinated.
You must have the actual rabies certificate, and a license with you. The tag alone is not proof enough.
Dog's must be leashed and under the control of their owner at all times.

Be sure to invite your friends, share, and like the event on Facebook!

OK, I did my homework on smart phone buying. To make a long story short, I decided to go with Consumer cellular for the service and a Huawei P8 smartphone. So, I looked on EBay and found a place called “sobeonline1” and I ordered the phone. I put my consumer cellular sim card in it and all was well for about 8 months. 

Then, overnight, my cell phone said “no service” I couldn’t send or receive calls. I called consumer cellular and after a time I realized all was well with the signal. So, I decided to call Huawei corporate help line. Here’s the rub.

I talked to a well-informed Huawei man. We knew the phone was still under warranty since it was less than a year since I bought it.  He asked for some numbers from my phone. He looked the numbers up on his computer. He said that the phone was from Iran. He said Huawei dedicates their phones to the countries they are going to so they can add the appropriate updates for that region.  He said some U.S.  Sellers go to different countries and buy bulk phones cheaper than they could here and then sell them to U.S. customers for a higher profit margin.

He told me my warranty was invalid since this phone was meant for Iran, not the U.S. So, I get no money back, no replacement phone, and I am s___t out of luck.

* Countdown to Spring

There are -3 days until 3/20/2018 which is Spring

Celestial thought - If you were standing on the Equator at noon time on the first day of Spring you would have NO SHADOW since the sun is directly overhead.
