Daniel Patrick Wilson - 1965-2010
- forever a pinelian -

"I remember Danny when he was at pinel. He was an adorable little boy: loud, fun and always in motion--his cheeks rosy and his brow sweaty. He was the kind of little kid you wanted to hug but couldn't because he just moved too fast. Since we've had the yahoo group, Grown-up Danny's postings have made me laugh and marvel at his depth, honesty and creativity. I am so sorry that we have lost Danny. l will miss hearing from the ranch." -- Brenda Dawson Dove

Daniel Patrick Wilson Teddy Bears Picnic

Wilson Family
Daniel Patrick Wilson Teddy Bears Picnic
Saturday, June 5, 2010
High Noon until 6 O'clock.

Crow Picnic Ground
Alhambra Creek Staging Area
Briones Regional Park
2537 Reliez Valley Rd.
(Or is that 5363 Alhambra Valley Rd.?)
Martinez, California
United States of America

DIRECTIONS to Alhambra Creek Staging Area from Hwy 24: take Pleasant Hill Rd exit, heading north. At 1.9 mi, Pleasant Hill Rd splits; take the left split (Taylor Blvd.) and follow it 2.2 mi. to Grayson Rd. Turn left on Grayson and drive 1/2 mile to Reliez Valley Rd. Turn right on Reliez Valley - the entrance is on the left (2537 Reliez Valley Rd.) From Hwy 4, take Alhambra Ave exit, heading south. Turn right onto Alhambra Valley Rd (0.6 mi.). At the T-intersection with Reliez Valley Rd, turn left and look for the park entrance on the right. Drive 1 mi. to staging area parking lot.

[Pinelians may recognize this as the fabled "farmer's land" beyond pinel's back fence. Venturing there was forbidden, and could reportedly result in an ass full of rock salt. Some pinel kids ventured out there anyway, for a thrill, including Danny Wilson.]

Potluck. Old school pinel style. We will be providing a grill, and picnic sundries.

(Note: The park charges $5 for parking. We can arrange carpools from The Top of the Hill - Wilson Family home - for anybody who needs that option.)

Hope to see you there, for a while, or for a long afternoon.
