Mend Your Ways
The wives were out of town, so, the guys drive an hour and a half to get a burger and a beer. There wasn't much question as to whether the beer would be good. A friend of mine told me about a bar called Reyes Creek Bar & Grill located in the boonies off Hwy 33 in Ventura County, California. So, my brother-in-law and I took a drive. We had a five hour window to make the trip. That meant three hours on the road and two hours at the location.
The wives had the GPS with them, so, we were left doing visual routing. Amazingly, we found Lockwood Road off of Hwy 33 and then a sign for the Bar and Grill. Two creek crossings later, we found our destination. What a pleasant surprise. Bikers all over the place. That's a good sign! We looked at the first come, first serve dry campground and then headed for the grill. Rustic to say the least, which is another good sign. No cell reception in the area, but, believe it or not, wifi! One of the best hamburgers I've ever had.
The road ends at the campground which is adjacent to the bar and grill, so, there is only one way in/out unless you are hiking and the road is narrow; someone is going to have to back up! There are maybe nine permanent residents in Camp Scheideck. A few rustic-looking buildings like the chapel shown in the photo dot the area. Another surprise was the fact that they have a music festival each year, at least up to 2014.
