First Time at a Coffin Race

I know, weird title right? But it was more fun than it sounds.  Susanville sponsors a “safe and sane” Halloween where they close off a large portion of their Main Street and little kids walk around to all of the downtown stores and get candy.  In the middle of the street they have push cart races (no steering wheel allowed), which were quite entertaining to watch.  It reminded me a bit of Keene’s pumpkin festival costume parade, although on a much smaller scale of course, and we really enjoyed it.  Actually I have no complaints about the town at all.  The people are pretty nice and I love the small town feel.  This was the perfect first time work kamping assignment and on that note  I did want to mention that Stan (our BLM coordinator) is looking for volunteers for next year.  He is willing to break up the season if you want a shorter time commitment and you seriously cannot beat the full hookup site we have.  So if you have an interest send me an email at camperchronicles@gmail.com and I will send you Stan’s contact information.  That being said, here’s some pictures of the Susanville festival to give you a feel for the town.
