On the road again
2/16/06, 4:21pm
Just can't wait to get on the road again...

Early Saturday morning I'll be heading to Cambria. And, I mean EARLY. I'm supposed to be there by 9am. I'll be meeting up with about 30 people from the Canon forum for the weekend. Sunday afternoon when the shindig breaks up I'll be heading back to my favorite haunt: Jackson. I called Tracie this morning and reserved the Pumpkin Room for three nights. On my way home, if the roads are open, I'll swing by Yosemite. I need to buy a new National Parks pass, and I haven't been there in a while anyway.

I haven't even started packing yet! I have to get busy...

Be careful. Supposed to rain on Saturday, especially the Central Coast. Snow down to 3500' too.

I'll probably see some rain on the way up, but I actually want to. I just treated the car's windows with Rain-X and I wanna see how well that stuff works. My brother swears by it! I also put their anti-fog stuff on the inside of the windows. This weather should be perfect to test that.

I'll be coming home via the Grapevine, but not until Wednesday, and it should all be cleared up by then.

At least it won't be anyone I know. The rest of the gang all booked really expensive rooms in Cambria and Morro Bay. Oh, and Dwight is staying in his motorhome at a campground on the beach somewhere.

Hope you have a super trip Thomas. Sounds like fun. Ive always liked driving in the rain long as I wasnt in a hurry to get where I was going.

Cambria is on the central coast of California, between San Luis Obispo and Hearst's Castle. As a camera guy, you would LOVE it...lots of sea lions on the coast and some beautifil country to see.

Cambria itself sits right on the coast and in many areas, you can rent a house that has an ocean view. Cambria is a tourist/artsy kinda town. Lots of great little shops and restaurants.

The area around Cambraia is the new wine area for the state and personally, I think that the wines that come from there are far better than anything Napa has produced..but that is my opinion.

The wife and I just LOVE the central coast. There is a lot to do there...but it is also a great place just to find a quiet spot and read.

Cambria is also a good starting point for other things in the area..Hearst's Castle, San Luis Obispo, Moro Bay, Pismo Beach..all great places to see. There is also a nature refuge..darn if I didn't forget the name, in Moro Bay. A nice place to visit and you get a sense of what California used to look like.

It rained off and on all day today. The rest of the group said there was some pretty serious, hard hail coming down on the way to Montana De Oro, but I didn't see it. I was about a half hour behind them, and it was over by the time I went through that part of the highway. I just saw light rain occasionally all day. That Rain-X sure does work!

It's been fun so far. A couple people here were on the Catalina trip last year, and I've known Tom and his wife for a couple years. The rest are all online friends I've known for a couple years but had just never actually met until now.

Without looking ahead, I'll bet Bill already covered this one. He loves this area. Personally, I don't really care that much for it. It's ok, just not my cup o' tea. On the Canon forum we put it up for a vote. I voted for Yosemite. Me and the 16 others who wanted that were outvoted. I'll show them! I'm going to Yosemite on Wednesday anyway... lol

Are you thinking of Montana De Oro? That's a state park, but I didn't see anything saying it was a nature refuge also, and I didn't see signs for any other.

Imagine that... A California State Park that doesn't charge for admission!

By the way, there's supposed to be a tilde over the second "n" in Montana. It's a Spanish name, pronounced Montanya De Oro. Not named after that other state...

That's it! But..I thought it was a refuge. (I am talking about the part that you cannot camp in.)

I wish I had Ran-X Friday night. I nearly rearended some guy on the 210 in Tujunga because I couldn't see clearly through the windshield. I went out yesterday and replaced the wipers and bought some Rain-X.

Stay dry, but have fun!!! I wish I was going with you to the Gold Country.
