wbrownrr: Beverly Beach is outstanding. You camp in the woods but just a short walk to a beautiful beach. The coast there is very rough, lots of rocks high surf logs etc., not like So Cal beaches at all. There is a very nice hiking trail that starts in the park. Beautiful sunsets.The park is really clean also. Several lighthouses in the area to visit. Newport is a neat city to visit, eat some clam chowder at Mo's reasturant in Newport. I want to go back now!!
Everyone I met there was friendly and I had many interesting conversations.
Campcollector I think I saw your Bambi there as you were leaving. I was camped on the main road out of the park in the C section. The solar panel I have is a 50 watt solar pro plug and play. It keeps my battery charged up when I have the Bambi parked in storage. I have not boondocked with it yet. I don't think it would really give me that much power in such a situation. My plan is to buy another 50 watt panel but only hook the second one up when camped. With the plug and play model you can buy a cord that connects the two panels. From what I've read 100 watts should be sufficent for bondocking.
I wish you would have stopped to talk at the park. I'm still trying to figure out how to post pictures.
