Bailey the Surfing Pomeranian hitting the waves at Newport Beach.

santa cruz redwoods

It’s always been on my bucket list to hike the redwoods. I’m grateful this adventure has given us that opportunity.

uvas reservoir

Just over a mile down the road from the Morgan Hill RV Resort and Campground is the Uvas Reservoir. It’s a great spot to photograph waterfalls, wildlife and the lake (reservoir).

shark fin cove beach

We found this beach from Jon Siemien sending us a link to the top 10 most scenic beaches in the USA. It was a little difficult to find, we stopped at 3 locations and finally had to find a local guy with no teeth to give us specific directions. Once we knew the general area of where it was at you can actually see it from the PCH if you know where… Read More

Pinnacles National Park is a climbers playground! My pictures DO NOT do this place justice and I understand why this was made a National Park in 2013. I went here well before sunrise to go hiking, climbing, and caving. I didn’t really know what to expect but the thing that really surprised me is that I was the only person here. I had the entire National Park to myself! The only other people I… Read More

big sur rv

Mistake #37, driving through big sur with a fully loaded RV. Big sur is absolutely beautiful. Since we’ve camped here before we opted not to stay in Big Sur but I wanted to drive through it on our way to Santa Cruz. The scenery was epic, but so was the fuel cost!

rv solvang

Located about 15 miles outside of Santa Barbara is the city of Solvang. It’s one of the most unique cities I’ve ever been to. All the buildings look Danish and the city is very tourist friendly. They even have an RV parking lot on the main street at the police station. We parked and walked around the downtown area. There are 2 things that are prevalent in this town, Bakeries (danishes) and… Read More

RV Designing Spaces

We were lucky enough to be on the TV show Designing Spaces for our RV. The show will air August 14 and September 19. We went to Rancho Oso RV Park in Santa Barbara. It’s a cool little spot hidden up in the mountains above Santa Barbara just 15 min from the beach and 10 from the city. We mis-judged the gas guzzler and the light came on just as we were… Read More

Towing a Mazda with RV

We couldn’t imagine not having our car while RVing. Not only does it get around 40 mpg compared to 8 in the Sunseeker but the accessibility to epic locations is the deal breaker for us. After all, what is the point of traveling the country if you don’t get to see the good stuff? We moved so quickly on getting the RV that we didn’t think about pulling the car until after… Read More

Hello San Diego! It’s always great to spend time with good friends. Over the years Bill and Leighanna Richards have been a big part of our lives. All 4 of us have been in each other’s weddings, but that’s the formal end of it. The memories we’ve shared, the times visiting each other, the camping, etc has been such a blessing in our lives. After catching up a bit we went to… Read More
