Winter West Coast Camping: Hiding Out

Hiding in Tofino BC along the ocean shores in our 5 TA. Second trip for us and our Golden Retriever. Storm watching season but days are beautiful, sunny which is rare on the coast in winter and highs in the mid 50 s Fahrenheit. Everything working well. Great time to travel. Not crowded. Enjoyed the super moon the other night.

While not the coast (at least, until the "Big One" hits), Quartzsite, AZ isn't too bad a way to spend the winter. Last weekend was in the 80's, although I have to admit last night was down to 31F; first freezing night since I arrived in mid November.

Did not realize you got that kind of temperature swing in Quartzsite. Going beginning of February. What can I expect?

I’ve looked at that park a couple times on the net. Looks nice there, love this time of year there. How would you rate the park? Should post a few pics if you get time.

Just about anything. The rally has had everything from shorts & "T" shirts to snow, although daytime in the 70's & nights in the high 40's it more likely.

If the ferries weren't so expensive I'd join you. Love it out there.
