*****I have been to San Antonio but it looks prettier in the fall? It was party hardy when I was there many years ago.
:o That is why we go in the fall.

Camping student questions

* * * * * * on the west coast? * Well this is a tricky question - the easy answer for me is anywhere that is quiet.

In the US of A?: * OREGON. * stunning. (Cape Blanco! Harris and Beverly Beach, Florence Area for the dunes, and others, etc.)


(well, it is tough - we need more specific questions.)
Me too, I like the quiet but I am not used to it, I might actually get spooked. I am very new to camping (just purchased 98 Casita this July). I know I don't like the big RV sardine like CG's. Otherwise, I dunno I think I need to experience all the different settings...that is why I need help from you pros. Harris, hopefully, will be next years vacation spot. Thanks Rick. BTW, we tow with a 2002 SLT Durango.

I'll keep looking for more suggestions.:E :E

River, Lake, Beach

:wave OK, for the beach this time of year.

February is a Great month to go to Pismo Beach State Park. Here you are camped in the coastal pines and back up to a little lake. It has a short hike to the ocean. Kite flying is very popular, the acrobatic type.

The camp ground is along the Oceano Lagoon. Lots of wild life there. Bird watching and the Monarch Butterfly winter nesting grounds. Surf fishing at the beach. Commercial surf fishermen catch up to 75 lbs of Perch a day in these waters. Blue Gill & Bass fishing in the lagoon. I like canoeing in the lagoon.

:wiggly Christine,

Am I getting close? All of these are 4 to 5 hours from you. Nice weekend trips. I think Mike & Michael will love the activities. What do you think?

JAY

you haven't been here for a few years? Are you aware your dollar is worth about 1.60 here? Come up and enjoy the results of that - in April to October! *weather's fine* :o

Alpine

I avoid the snow in the mountains. My shoes just don't work in the snow.

I love to go to Lake Edison. Not many people go that far and it is beautiful. I also like Grants Grove in the Redwoods.

Further north, is one of the best kept secrets of California - Big Lake just past Burney Falls. Lori caught a limit of Rainbow trout in an hour in that area.

*****(Besides, big Mike wants your cool generator set-up or maybe solar...)
Morgan has Solar and camps with no hook ups. It totally intrigues me.

:u I can't figure out how to make the numbers work with my propensity to use energy gobbling appliances like a satellite color TV, electric heater, air conditioner, coffee maker and microwave.[/quote]

With all that consumption, you don't want solar. You'd have to cover you Casita with collectors and spread some out on the ground.

There's a picture, the [b]Amorphous Silicon Casita. :laugh

Favorites & Clam Chowder

Hi Christine, :wave

One of my very favorites is Elk Prairie CG in Prairie Creek Redwoods St Pk in northern CA. This one has everything. There are many sites in the redwoods, some next to a creek and a few sites in the overflow area which is very open around a grassy area. The overflow area has some sites with hookups and most of them are very exposed, BUT site #70 is the exception. It is very private, being surrounded by trees and shrubs and still gets sun and best of all, the Roosvelt Elk may wander in to graze on the grassy area. Last time there we saw 20+, males, females & young come over a little rise in the fog to graze. Beautiful! :hap2

The beach is a short drive away, down a pretty little road and you may see elk at the beach also. At the end of the beach road there is a beautiful hike into Fern Canyon (?) that is very special. There are nice bike trails and best of all the Giant Redwoods. Unlike Charles, I love trees :wub (can't you tell?).

Oh yes, about the chowder. When we are in Oregon we always stop at Mo's for excellant clam chowder and oyster sandwiches. There are half a dozen Mo's to be found along the OR coast.
