we plan to try to go camping in the next week or so. i was just wondering who else camps and where is your favorite place to go??
do you tent camp? do you have a pop-up camper....or an RV?? we have a 2002 jayco pop-up.
We have an ancient motor home- 1972, 19 foot Shasta. We go camping when ever and where ever the mood stikes. If we are traveling long distances- we tend to stay at KOA sites , if it's closer to home, we stay at state parks or some locally owned campsites.
We had a VW van, but the engine caught fire and we havent had it repaired yet. We (dh and I) used to sleep in the van and the kids slept in tents. Then we bought an air mattress and that changed everything. I love tent camping, but the cold damp ground got to my back and legs. With the air mattress I can have the best of both worlds. Dh and I have our own tent and the kids have their own tent(s).
We usually camp locally, in our own San Gabriel mountains, but our favorite place is coastal beach camping near San Simeon CA. The home of the elephant seals. We have found many other sites as well near that area that we like. If we are not up to the long drive then it is local, if time and $$$ permits then it is San Simeon Hands Down!
