Oct 28, 2015 - We've finally arrived

Gabi The flight took so long it felt like forever. We then got in the car and went to Santa Monica Pier. After that we drove 3 hours to Pismo Beach on the wrong side of the road (for Australians anyway). Nessie I finally arrived at the airport. Next stop Customs. When we're through Customs we walked to gate 16 and take a seat. After a while we're called to board the plane where we spent the next 13 1/2 hours watching movies, playing games and getting very little sleep. After arriving in Los Angeles we pick up our people mover hire car and...

Linton's USA Trip

Jul 10, 2015 - Le Sage RV Park, Pismo, CA

Le Sage is quiet, only 30 amp, fair cel, no trees so Dish worked good and no grass, all gravel. Pretty good location. Near the beach, about a 10 minute walk. Our spot 145 is kinda small, it's on the end so the front and back of Moho were close to the road. The guy next to us parked crooked, so his slide hung over 3 feet into our spot. The guy staying there rented the RV because his was in the shop. The owner had a company move it in for him. The spot next to us, 146 was level and big and seemed like a good spot. Rode by bike almost 6 miles...

Jul 6, 2015 - Pismo Sands

Stayed at Pismo Sands with Brady and Lili. The RV park is nice, 50 amps, ok cel, nice clean pool and grass at the sites. They also have a play area with a pirate ship for the kids. Our spot was noisy because a group of cops and a bunch of kids surrounded us and they partied a lot. Usually quiet by 11 pm. They do rent by the month, $1500 in the summer and $850 in the winter, utilities included. Bike/walking trail near to the beach. But kinda dangerous because a lot of homeless peeps living along the path. We will keep this place on our list...

Jun 10, 2015 - Pismo Beach, CA

Nice drive up US 1 to Pismo Beach. It is a State Campground right on the beach. Sand dollars are a dime a dozen. It is funny how hard we have to look to find them on our beaches but here we passed by lots of them because we got tired of picking them up. Tomorrow we head to Big Sur.

Takin the Slow Road

Apr 7, 2015 - From LA to Pismo

Some days are boring and then some days... well, some days are a bit more exciting than others. We awoke on the beach of Los Angeles which in itself is pretty cool. After a slow morning of walking the beach (and seeing some seals) and washing in the 'not hot - not cold' showers of RV park we packed and got on our way by 11am... Our goal was to be in Pismo Beach by the end of the day... We programmed our GPS and off we went... oh but we wanted to take a slightly different route than we were being told to... so we drove through downtown LA,...

Winter West

Mar 17, 2015 - San Francisco, Carmel to Pismo Beach

Time to move on south from San Francisco down the coast. This area is near Silicon Valley, the home of Google, Apple and other software companies. Large fields of vegetables and fruit lined the road and surfers were dotted along the water, all in their wetsuits in the cold water. We stopped near Monterey at Cannery Row, once a busy canning town for fish, made famous in the 1930s by the novels of John Steinbeck. Today it is home to shops, restaurants and an aquarium. A short distance away is the beautiful town of Carmel with its wide...

Mar 15, 2015 - Ahhh . . . Salt Air

Today's travel was smooth and easy, for both of us and for both kitties. We only had about 150 miles to do, and even though we didn't need to leave at the crack o' dawn, we were on the road fairly early. I think I am still on Texas time, which by the way is still confusing. -- We left Texas and when we got to New Mexico, we went into a different time zone - Mountain Time - an hour later, so we turned back the clock an hour. Then, we traveled into Arizona. On Sunday, the clocks were turned forward an hour, but Arizona does not do daylight...

Pretty Damn Nice!

Jan 7, 2015 - Pismo Beach 1/2 - 1/5

On January 2nd we pulled up stakes and headed about 50 miles south to Pismo Beach. We stayed at the Pismo Sands RV Park. It soon became quite a bit warmer, not difficult since we experienced down to 18 degrees in Paso Robles, but it was still chilly at night. The BIG news here is that Tom went exploring in the front gas furnace and FIXED it. Good Job. On Friday evening we met with Mike and Connie Framberger. Mike and Tom used to both be Sales Managers for Blue Cross starting back in the mid 1990sh. we had a great Mexican dinner and it was...

Mar 27, 2013 - Morrow Bay

Visited Morrow Bay and Elfin Forest. These areas are along the coast and had some really nice hiking and walking locations. While walking on the boardwalk of the Elfin Forest (kind of sounds like it is from the Lord of the Rings movie), I chatted with a man about how it came to be. He said that the property was owned by a couple for many years (there are many acres of open land along the ocean). The husband died and the wife didn't like what her children wanted to do with the land (build condos). She ended up donating it as a bird preserve...

Mar 21, 2013 - Pismo Beach

Today we headed off to Pismo Beach. The place I chose was the north state beach which is only dry camping. The campground is on the edge of a beautiful beach with nice board walks down to the pier. The beach and town surprisingly is dog friendly - so long as they are on a leash. Buddy and I enjoyed a very long board walk and then a walk back along the beach. We stopped and chatted with numerous nice people. One thing I didn't count on… spring break. A huge number of families and college kids roaming the area. Visit My Pismo Beach Area...
