We're booked

We just booked a full hookup site, 52, for three nights October 13-16. I clicked at 8:00 am and by the time I got to the select, several sites were already gone, so jump on it if you want to go!!

We had the same experience so we took site 46 with hookups -- the beachfront areas are already taken. October is the best time for the coast so we are competing with others. See you there!

I'm such a newbie! I thought developed meant hookups We didn't get an ocean front site either. We got site 72 which does not have hookups. Not to worry, we have our solar, we'll be fine. See you in October!

Ouch! We have reservations at New Brighton State Beach and an unforseen event is overriding this trip.

If someone else would like to capture our spot (Standard # 46), we could time our cancelation and you could make your reservation about the same time for optimum results. We are out of town until Tuesday, so shoot us a PM to coordinate. I'll be happy to see other Escapees get together..

Lorna

If you do this next year, I hope to be a part of this gathering.

This has not been my best attempt at planning a get-together. As far as I know, only 3 were able to get reservations for this very popular park. Right now, in addition to Lorna, the other participant is Jill. Any others?

In the future, I would suggest we look for a location that is not so popular so that more can participate. That probably means a private campground or a public campground without hookups and not located on a beach. Last spring, we camped at Bodega Dunes State Park which fits this description. Other thoughts were something closer to wineries so people could go wine tasting, or something closer to a freeway for easier access. Other suggestions?

We are still hoping to coordinate our cancelation with an Escape owner who'd like to join bdornbush and Jill! Send us a private message if you are interested!

Hi Bill! Kudos to you for organizing this get-together. We're signed up for the Fall gathering in Oregon and have plans for camping in Washington after or we'd be attending (and New Brighton is practically in our back yard). If you're looking at places for future gatherings in the Santa Cruz/Monterey area, you might look at the Santa Cruz/Montery KOA which is a very nice park away from any city/town and not too far from the beach -- AND there are wineries in the area (or maybe plan your own private wine tasting ...). Another option is the Costanoa KOA in Pescadero, just up the coast, which used to be a private Lodge/RV park and still retains a lot of the amenities it was originally known for. Seacliff State Beach is good but only if you want to be close to the ocean as it's really just a long parking lot with great ocean views.

Of course, there's always the option of going a little further south where you might capture some of the Southern CA or Arizona folks too. I'm sure there are lots of us who would be willing to help plan/organize a gathering.
