The good part is that the cg had a store & it worked out. Last year when I went to Big Sur with my late brother and his wife we stopped overnight to break up the drive. We ended up driving 26 miles after dark to the nearest Walmart to get an adapter for the sewer hose. That road belongs in the mountains with all of it twisting turns - 52 miles of turns.
I will check out the links you provided - always looking for nice places to add to my "wishlist" of places to visit. I can't wait until I am free to wander.
I'm not ready for dry camping either. After tent camping I am in love with hookups! Dry camping can be fun too but since I'm alone I rather have the comfort of power. When I was tent camping I stayed at El Captian SB just north of San Barbara. I really like that campground. They don't have hookups but someday I would love to go back and spend a couple of days there in my trailer
I'm heading out to San Clemente SB tomorrow morning. Been there several times so I do like it. It's not my ideal cg but it works for me. Then for the 4th of July I'm sticking close to home. Cottonwood @ Ranch Jupura is a very nice cg that I stayed at for my maiden trip. Unless the city (Riveside) changes things I should be able to see the fireworks from the campsites.
Remember to keep us updated on your upcoming trips.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
