Thanks VTA, I was wondering why it got so cheap as I headed towards Oxnard. Santa Ynez looks very nice. It definitely just went on the 'visit me' list.
Phatty, I remember Santa Maria from the last time we were there. And, we stayed in SLO for a while. The wife loved Pismo Beach.
Thanks again for all the input, gang. It's really helping me to think this through before I make too many mistakes. LOL.
There's a Motel 6 in both Pismo & Santa Maria. Maybe 1 or 2 in each town.
If you want a room with a bath tub, sometimes you have to rent one of the wheelchair accessible rooms.
People camp on those dunes all the time. Maybe a camping permit is all it takes to not get hassled for camping. $10 a day. Could it be so easy ?
Given how nice it is there, I figure there has to be a catch. Or there'd be 10,000 people living on the dunes in Pismo. Maybe 100,000.
Heck, you can use human poop as crab bait, I think.
There, I just cured the homeless problem. Just give them tents & sleeping bags and permission to feed their turds to the crabs & lobsters off the central coast.
I've lived near Market & Van Ness in SF, about as downtown as you could get. I never saw people pooping or people castings piled on the sidewalk.
It sounds as if they closed the bathrooms - or there are just a LOT more homeless people in SF.
I think it helps to have a vehicle where you can get to the back without leaving the cab and crawling through a camper shell door. A van.
I camped in SF for 5 weeks once looking for an apartment, and had to be a fvcking ninja to not be seen lifting the hatch & crawling in.
