I will pass this on to Donna and see if she's up to it. I could see her and our friend Judy (they just bought a '51 Flying Cloud this past summer that needs to be updated) heading down with our trailer and truck.

Thanks,
Barry

Sounds good Michelle. The timing might be right for me as well.

The beach sites reserve in advance and are a little harder to get in to but if we plan ahead we may be able to work it out. Check out El Capitan and Refugio...both are state parks by the beach in the Santa barbara area and have nice camp sites.

Lake Cachuma would again be an option that is first come first serve. We could do a field trip to the beach or Santa Barbara proper. And there were a few wineries we missed plus of course the Cold Spring Tavern.

Ladies? What say you???

Do we want to stay around Santa Barbara Area? How about Malibu RV across from the beach on PCH with ocean view on the bluff? Pismo Beach is also very nice as well.
Problem with state beach site like El Capitan and Refugio might be size. Will Michelle's 31 ft accepted in one of those beach campground? Is there a group site that we might be able to get ahead of time?
There's Lake Casita by Ojai, that is private RV on the lake and is pretty nice and quiet that time of year. We might want to investigate as well. It's close to Ojai for antiqueing, or we can hop onto Ventura Harbor, and do a one day scenic cruise to Channel Islands for a short hike as well.
Many options to choose from, I guess.
I'll just have to start practice on my towing and parking, so I can bring my "home" and my cat with me next time.

That could work for me too, and it would be so much fun to see everyone again! I think El Capitain is closed until May or June, but there's that swanky place just across the freeway. Can't remember the name--Cosa Nostra, Cosa Bella, Costa Brava?
Meredith? Are you with us? Have any ideas?
Cachuma was fun and convenient. Having fearless site-nabbers arrive early seemed to work out pretty well.
Refugio might be a reservation challenge for a weekend.
What about Pismo Beach?
Hope you're all enjoying this beautiful fall weather, although I'd sure love a little rain sometime soon.
Take care!
Janet

Oops. Missed Cat's post. Lake Casitas sounds like it could be good. Afraid Malibu is too far for me.

The private campground near El Capitan Beach is called "Ocean Mesa".
They are across Hwy 101 from the beach but I think there is an underpass so you can walk to the beach. It's a nice clean park with a pool but not very "woodsy". Lots of sites packed in. (I drove through but didn't stay)

The rates are $65/night through March and then go up to $85 in April.
They have a web site if you want to check it out.

Ocean Mesa! Yes that's the one I was thinking of. We stayed at El Cap. State Beach last year and checked it out. You can walk under the freeway, but it's a looong walk to the RV area. (The closer private campground, which also owns Ocean Mesa, only has cabins and yurts.)
And it really does have zero atmosphere. Very new, with baby trees and shrubs.
Also way expensive. Shall we check that one off the list?

Lake Casita turns out to be a Public Campground which is the water resource for Ojai Valley. So my guess is that it's city or county. They do have group reservation with hookups and other hook up sites we can plan for. Here is the website: Lake Casitas Recreation Area Camping and Public Use Fees
Price is reasonable and has a lots of space between site and quite woodsy.

I would prefer to stay out of the LA Basin... Including Malibu. Although parking next to Mathew Mcconehey (sp?) would be cool. I hate large cities!

Somewhere around Santa Barbara would be nice. I liek the Ojai idea, Antiquing and a harbour cruise sounds great. I would prefer a reservation type place so we can be sure we are all together.

Michelle, now that I could appreciate. Just teasing. Hi gals, it's great to be following your planning. I would love to meet you all someday at a rally. For now I am reading and wishing and enjoying your posts.

Lake Casitas might be doable. I just checked out their web site and it looks like there are tons of spots especially in March.

The group sites are too big for our group but I don't think we'd have any trouble getting spots together in the regular camping areas.

Has anyone been there?
