Robert,

Well, we can pull in and wait until you get your beautiful Airstream hooked up.... wouldn't you like to get out of the fog and into a warm climate? Hope all is well with you and your lovely family.
Claudia

Hi everyone,
Are you planning a stop in the central cal area this evening? If you are in the vicinity of Santa Cruz I may stop by for a visit. No, I can't hitch up & go, though I would love to.
Best to you all for the New Year,
Rich the Viking

Viking, Thanks for the post. We won't be there tonight. It might even be a day or two yet. We are waiting for some mail. We will keep you posted.

I would love to hit Mexico this time of year. Warm weather, big surf, friendly people.

Our family is doing great. We just added another little Airstreamer this past October. I will have to follow your travels virtually.

Have fun and be safe.

P.S.

If you need to stop for the night in our area, just drop me a line. Your more than welcome to stop by.

Oh my gosh, when will you get down near Santa Barbara, CA? I am a half hour south of there in Ojai. Maybe by then, my "Lost and Found Puzzle Contest" will be over, winners announced and I could figure out a way to have someone drive me and my famous little trailer. Or someone could just pick me up and take me along..........

The good reasons I should go:

1) I worked as a nurse for 30 years, cardiovascular surgery is my specialty and I used to teach paramedics in Los Angeles. Very helpful in a medical emergency.

2) Able to converse fairly well in Spanish, especially when hungry

3) Love exploring Baja, always wanted to go see the whales

4) Can barter great stories for gas and food money

5) Great cook on land or sea

6) Can document the trip for everyone as an artist and a writer........


Someone must surely have a tiny spot they can stuff me in. This would do me a world of good after my lovely little vacation in the hospital. Barter is the new way of the world now. My doctor just accepted my proposal to barter my art for his surgery bill again. Last year, two ten hour emergency surgeries, for a total of $22,000, for one of my paintings. This year he did three surgeries so I guess it will have to be a slightly larger painting..........

I want to go, I want to go..

Sound interesting, We have a two person truck and the smallest Airstream. Could you go on the forum and find someone who is an Airstreamer and has a truck and would like to go to Baja. Please keep in touch.

On our way....
After a couple days packing, little trailer repairs, and "stuff" our tiny mini caravan of 2 have started on our journey! Last night was spent at Red Bluff at the Good Sam RV park. Very nice and quiet, nice accommodations. Drove to Sacramento once the tule fog rose to a height for driving visability ~ but the endless central valley fog was consistent all day! We are on a quest for sunshine and warmth! Tonight we have headed towards the coast and are staying at Casa de Fruta RV park near Hollister. Don and I have stayed here before a couple of years ago.... they have 300 spaces and likely cater to big MoHo's and Diesel pushers.... the prices have gone up beyond the quality of their accommodations and we were disappointed that we previously recommended the spot. Everything gets pricey as one gets towards Monterey and Carmel. We will decide in the morning if we want to head to Monterey for site seeing or head down Hwy 101 for awhile. The weather reports look a bit better on that route, besides I-5 through the central valley is deadly foggy and boring...not to mention the road is bumpy and the trucks drive way too fast!

Hey, folks out there that might live along the way... there is still time to throw some jeans into the trailer and clean out the refrigerator and toss the stuff in your Airstream! Let us know and join in, we would be happy to have more company. In the meantime we will try to keep you informed when we have internet access as well as a little time to use our computers.

You have left the valley, but I would suggest 99 as a better route than I5. It is freeway all the way, more to see, less truck traffic and more towns to visit.

Bill,
Thanks for your suggestion... always good to "see" others ideas! I grew up in the valley and generally avoid both I-5 and Hwy 99 any time I can.... especially in the winter because of the fog. But, you are right more to see and more towns to visit. We are planning on heading down 101 for a ways and then see which way we want to go... the weather and our whim!

If you come down 101, you will see a turnoff for Ojai. (Just south of Santa Barbara, CA) If you need a place to stay, I'll be happy to help you find one........Have fun and I will try to come next year!

Thanks for the note and offer. Do you know of any boondocking down that way? we are sick of asphalt. We also decided to go 101 and or parts of 1. The vally fog is just to cold and grey this time of the year. I believe we are heading for Avila Beach today. It's 7:30 and the sky is clear at Casa de Fruta.

Malibu has a state park with a pretty rustic feel.. that's where we saw a rattlesnake (almost go into our van!), skunk, and deer all in one night... just about 10 -15 min from the coast. South of that, there's San Clemente Beach state park that (although close to the freeway) is pretty close to the beach and water.

Pics!
