San Diego is essentially a collection of “beach towns” and it’s one of the things we love about the place. Take a 30-mile drive along the coast and you’ll find a medley of little downtowns each with its’ own unique vibe and its’ own community. So you can go hang in free-lovin’ Ocean Beach, party with the [...]
This is a so-so RV park in a FABULOUS location. We love staying here just for the access to water & beach with pooch.
Site quality = 2.5/5 Just so-so sites here. The park is probably best [...]
In San Diego it’s easy to get lost in beach and sea, but just ~15 miles inland is a whole other world which is equally absorbing….in a whole other way. The spot is Mission Trails Regional Park and it’s one of my fav places for hiking in the entire city! When we stay at Santee [...]
Almost every RVer I know complains about their tank sensors. It’s almost a given that after a few months the sensors start acting up and giving false readings showing tanks that are full when they are really empty. For anyone who dry-camps alot this is kinda annoying, and most end up just “living with it”. But there is hope! We’re [...]
It’s an inside kinda week-end here in San Diego. Saint Patrick’s Day seems to have brought in the Irish weather and it is pounding rain out there (local San Diegans are at a loss). It’s the perfect weather to cozy-up inside, make some hot chocolate and settle down with a book….which brings me quite neatly to [...]
It looks like Groundhog Punxsutawney got it wrong when he predicted a late spring this year, at least for San Diego. An abundance of sunshine and early than usual warm weather has got the place a-buzzing and flowers a-springing. I started noticing hints of it a few weeks back and the show’s been getting better and better everyday. Spring has officially [...]
It’s been a busy week-end at the beast headquarters. It all started with puuuurfect weather (what else, this is San Diego after all) and another meet-up with our new intrepid RVing buddies Lu & Terry from Paint Your Landscape. Our mission this time was to go kayaking at La Jolla Sea Caves.
Now this little expedition is something [...]
I have to admit that San Diego is a darn nice place to get stuck for a while. It’s the kinda spot where everyday is an “ooooh, it’s just sooooo nice today!” kinda day. It’s one of the many reasons we decided to slow it down for a few months here and in fact it’s so [...]
Once a year “the beast” gets a full-service RV spa treatment. She gets washed, dried, caressed and waxed so that her owners can stand back in smug self-satisfaction and declare “Oooooooo, she’s so shiny!”. It’s a job I admit that we rarely look forward to (except the “ooooing” part), it always takes waay longer than expected, and…undoubtedly [...]
If you come to California one of the “must do” items, in my mind, is to visit the Missions. The Missions here have their own unique story and there are over 21 of these historic settlements scattered along the coastal trail that we now know as Hwy 101 (a great RV drive too, by the way). From [...]
