BIG SUR Camping Trip: Ocean Views, Fresh Air...Beautiful! #NEW CONFIRMED DATE#

We now have enough space in the campground to confirm the trip.
#Optional third night/Thursday is a possibility.
(More info as we get closer to the date.)

The legendary BIG SUR.
I'm sure you've heard about what a special, almost mystical, place it is. One of the few areas in America where the mountains meet the ocean. Maybe you've been there, but have you ever camped on a bluff overlooking the ocean and woken up to the sight of whales swimming in the water outside your window?

No one organizes trips to Big Sur. Why? It's usually impossible to find any campsite at Big Sur, but we'll be staying at the BEST campground with the most awesome view you've ever seen. We'll hang out and listen to the ocean outside our tents. We'll explore the area, do some cool hikes, and walk along the beach. and now I know where to go to watch the sea lions! This should be a very chill trip. Come join us.

SAFETY: I will update you as to our policy as we get closer.
We will take all precautions required at the time.

This will be an easy, chill trip. If you've never camped before this just might be the trip for you -- would be a good intro to camping:

Our planned hikes are easier than usual
Weather should be moderate
We're in a developed campground w/bathrooms

GEAR: You should have basic car camping gear. You don't need fancy REI gear. (Cheap WalMart stuff is good enough) And I also have some tents & gear to loan out.

Each campsite will have its own stove, cooking gear, etc & you can bring your own stuff too. Everyone gets their own set of plates, silverware etc. No potlucks, no drink sharing. Smart steps.

If you want to go - RSVP Yes. (Don't forget: Give me your email address.) Then I email you a SURVEY w/questions. Answer them. And you won't officially be on the trip until youre confirmed and pay.

Cost $90 per person.
There's no entrance fee or anything. We'll carpool and you'll split the gas cost with your carpoolers, of course.

WEATHER: Big Sur has that Mediterranean climate, doesn't usually have temperature extremes. Should be great!
