The Mac Meda Destruction Co. sounds like a joke, started as a joke, thrived as a joke and ended up like a joke.
Or is it?
Some of the teen-age, members of this loosely organized group boast the motto, “Drinking Destruction and Sex”
Here’s the joke punch line, written Jan 10 (1965):
On that day, beer flowed freely among the young Mac Meda crowd – nearly 200 of them minors – at a secluded grazing pasture of Carmel Valley, just north of the San Diego City limits.
Fifty police cars raided the teen-aged car caravan “beer blast” Four youth were arrested on charges of possession of alcoholic beverages and will be tried March 2 in a North Country Municipal Court, Oceanside.

As Red Mountain Inn owner, David Osborn said in a comment, “Mac Meda’s conventions had to move around a bit. The cops were always looking to bust the next one.” Besides, Browns Ranch, WindanSea and Sea Lane, there was the coolest of all coolest places to have a Convention. This editor knew it as the Adobe House or Farm in Carmel Valley.

Conventions were a must for Mac Meda. In reality it was just a place to go, and either raise some hell, like the Mexico Convention or just kick back, drink a ton of beers and socialize … as the boys from Animal House said, “Road Trip.”
Nested in the north East of El Cajon or about 40 miles east of San Diego and by Julian is Cuyamaca State Park, the perfect Road Trip. In the 60s this public campground was usually known for its Boy Scout Jamborees, and that five day camping experience in Grade School where you got your parents permission slip, $40 tab, and for a week got to spend time with classmates, away from your parents.
