I got a shiny new Airstream trailer last summer and now all our family vacations are spent at various campsites around the state. My wife and I are careful planners so we always map out our route in advance.
Here is our list of where to camp up the California coast in an airstream, or, you know, any camper really! We only had a week on the road so we didn't cover much ground...California coast road trip: Santa Barbara Ocean Mesa RV resort, Morro Bay Morro Dunes RV Park, Big Sur Kirk Creek Camp Ground.
S'mores are delicious but they're the obvious go-to when you're craving that campfire experience. I'm a creative cook, so I decided to explore some interesting treats and snacks you can make in a fire pit.
I camped in Lake Tahoe on a soul-searching journey last spring, and there was a surprise snowfall. It was April, so I wasn't prepared for sub-zero temperatures. I drove there and spent a miserable night shivering.
If you're camping to experience nature at its fullest, but shutting yourself in a cave-like space at night, what's the point? That's why someone made the Bubble Tent. And I've tried them; they're awesome.
A camping cot kinda seemed like a waste of money and space to me. We have sleeping pads and air mattresses and at this point, I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm not getting a good night's sleep in a tent.
