De la Guerra y Pacheco

E Clampus Vitus® was founded in antiquity. Its most glorious chapter is de la guerra y Pacheco, Chapter 1.5, emerging in unclaimed territory in 5996 and now reigning magnanimously over San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura Counties, and benevolently offering protection and administration to subject lands in the Sandwich Islands.

The Bastardos Barbareños and Los hueros de gumshaniana explore the clampverities of life in locales as diverse as the tar sand mines of Carpinteria, the clam mines of Pismo Beach, the treasured heights of Santa Lucia Mountains, the plate tectonic movement of Parkfield, and the arms of Captain Cook’s coveted wahini surfwidders.

If you are not a member, you can not merely join, you must be “taken in.”

This can be best be accomplished by finding one of the brethren (he will be wearing a red shirt). Respectfully explain that you would like to be introduced to the Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus.

If you thoroughly impress him with your knowledge of California history, you might confirm his sponsorship.
