This was our first California town coming out of Oregon and also provided us with the first access to the PCH 1. We were delayed two days waiting on our General delivery mail but that was OK.
It was around 30 miles to PCH 1. The signs said nothing larger than 32 ft. We figured they always have some margin, so we would try it at 60 ft. including the bug. We made it, but don't think I would try it again. In some areas the rock cliffs actually protruded out into the road, so to keep from hitting the side of the RV we had to make a lot of the turns on the wrong side of the road. By luck it was hardly anyone on the road so we did OK. It was a beautiful drive but a little hectic.
When we came out this was our view. It's a shame it was cloudy but it was all we had dreamed of.

While staying in the area we saw a place on the map called Shelter Cove. It was about 40 miles from our campsite and was one heck of a drive. It was real hilly and straight down hill. On the way back it made the oil light flash at idle on the bug. I guess the altitude and hard work climbing out of the hills thinned the oil. We could also smell the brakes on the way down. It was really steep

When we reached the bottom it was like being in Hawaii. There was a black beach which was ground up rock. This was a very unusual look for California.

It was a fly-in town. Most all the house's were equipped with airplane hangers. It was just too hilly and too far away for a normal commute. I saw a couple of 30 ft Class C's in the area. I think that would be about the size limit that could maneuver the roads.

Glad we went. Great experience.

There were a couple of campgrounds in this area but they all were closed. It's a popular area in the summer.

I sent this picture of the gold bear on the bridge to a lot of my friends, saying I still had it. Everything I touched turned to gold. In those day we were traveling fultime in the motorhome paid for, fully invested in the stock market, and couldn't spend as much money as we were adding to our accounts monthly. Those were the days.

What happened?

As they say all good things must come to an end and they did. Y2K put the hurting on a lot of us.

3 years on the road fultime in those days was the American dream and we lived it to the fullest.

We still enjoy the RV but it just not the same. In those days everyday was a new adventure.
