Ventura RV park

Is ok, has concrete slabs with grass next to it. If you walk to the north end of the park you can go under the freeway and get to the beach. Malibu RV park would be a much easier drive to LAX and it is more scenic. You are on a bluff just above PCH and there are good restaurants on each side of the park you can walk to. If you stay in Ventura you will need to leave at least about 3-4 hours to get to LAX at 1730. From Malibu maybe 1 1/2 hours -- you could go all the way on PCH to LAX to avoid the 405 Welcome to LA! OOPS I missed the part about the town car---well it would be less expensive to have them bring her to Malibu. There is also a nice hiking trail loop in Coral Canyon for the dogs--make sure they are up on their tick protection.

Thanks Str8. I'll look into the Malibu park. The Ventura park was suggested because it would put me onto PCH from the start, and the directions I was given, don't have them with me, keeps me off a lot of the freeways.

Yes, it's the that helped me decide that it would be best to let someone else handle the trip to/from LAX.

Ventura RV

Tom, NO NO NO I know this place all to well let me give you pros and cons. Pros hmmmm its 30 minutes closer than Ocean Mesa well that's it for pros. Cons you are right next to the frewway and the noise, my solution drink wine lots of and a sleeping pill. People that work there are rude, no cable, but you have satelite so np, its old. But if you must call way in advance and get the cement pads in the 60's numbers they are towards the back. A much better choice is Ocean Mesa and perhaps Ron and Debbie can chime in here with which are the best spots there, I only know that the upper area has the better views. Instead of waking up to the noise of a freeway you could wake up to peace and quite with a morning cup of joe and a very scenic view of the ocean and coast line. Downtown State Street in SB is onlt 20 min. away and the pier is worth the walk, luch end of pier lobster sandwhich $10 with a view or Brodys in the harbor.Your wife will be impressed with a wonderful start instead of welcome to LA freeways.

The farther north you go the prettier it gets. Florence is a beautiful area and there are RV parks right along the river. Don't know if the private membership parks allow non-owners but will find out for you. Some day I'm going to make that trip and visit friends in Bend OR and end up in Boerne Texas to visit friends and will count on your travels as where to stay. When are you planning to start this trip?

I'll check into the alternative y'all have given me for Malibu et al. You've been a wealth of knowledge for me to tap into. Thanks. You can park your Prevost next to my AS anytime. You can sip your wine, and I'll knock back a brew or two.

When you visit friends in Boerne, check out Buckhorn Lake Resort Home Page . It's in Kerrville, but is much more accomodating than the rv parks in the Boerne area. Kerrivlle is about 40 minutes from Boerne, so it's no big deal distance wise. They have an adult section, but I've never stayed in that section. They have some nice spaces next to their stock tank, excuse me their lake, that are nice. Good friendly people. The owner is from the Washington, Oregon area. They may try to sell you one of their MH villa spaces while you're there.

Oh c'mon, make the rest of the world wonder and call it like a Texan -- it's a tank. Don't know how many times I've let that slip out and left northerners scratching their heads.

They get the same expression when we show them most of our rivers. I guess that's why they claim we brag a bit.

Morro Bay

Nice park and nice rig. We have friends that live there and close by, so we're planning to stay there for 5-6 days.

Malibu RV

Even if you only do one night at Malibu it does start you on Hwy 1. Ocean Mesa is very nice. We stayed up on the Ocean Premium bluff and it had the best view. You have to walk down to Refugio State Beach if you want to give your dogs a good walk but there is a bluff trail that runs north for about 2 miles very scenic. It is a new park so the trees are young and the spots are fairly close together, nice store, heated pool and jacuzzi

When

Ron and Debbie I don't believe that this trip will happen till the summer of 2008 its his retirement gift to himself. Well @#%% if we can get his agenda maybe we could do Malibu or Ocean Mesa with him and give him a real California welcome or maybe there could be a rally set up for that time frame for his enjoyment and celebration we have the time.

If it's a retirement celebration, we might have to join them for part of it. 2008 is when we are hanging up our axes. It's been fun but 31, years is enough. We'd rather camp (read that; rally). Ron
