Anyone here live in Cali? I’m seriously needing a vacation and was hoping to rent an RV and do the Pacific Coast Highway. No hotels no restaurants no interaction with anyone except Mother Nature.

I live in LA and just got back from a few nights near Yosemite. I rented an Airbb. Took cloths wipes, gloves, masks, stopped at whole foods to get food and stayed in the Abb the whole time except for two walks. It was so restorative to have a change of scenery and sit on the deck reading a book and listening to the wind rustle the pines. Def go for it, just take the proper precautions

A lot of the state park campgrounds are still closed as well as the national parks. You can hike in some parks but need to wear a mask. I know in Malibu, police are ticketing anyone parked along PCH because the beaches are still closed.

Try Montana

I live next to Shannendoah NP and there are giant cement blocks at the entrance and exit. Your idea sounds awesome but plan out where to go that is open.

Most beaches in Northern California closed to parking for now as well as most pullouts along sections of highway 1. Some towns are ticketing for all non-local residents so research before you go. Parked in town and hiked into one beach last weekend, which is permitted. It was a 9 mi RT with 2000’ elevation change and the entrance was blocked by locals taking pictures of anyone driving by in a car and displaying ‘Go Home’ signs

When did you know that you want to have a kid(s) and what helped you decide to go for it? Not a mom but want to ask people With first hand experience.

I love work for the sense of achievement). Now I am leaning toward childfree. I would really appreciate your thoughts and advice!
