“Coldest winter I ever spent, was a summer in San Francisco”

follow Peggy and I can both agree with Mr. Twain when he made that statement. It has been windy, foggy and just plain cold here. But, the sights and sounds of San Francisco have been incredible and well worth the chill. The trip into the bay area was a real test of the skills I have gained over this long summer driving. The roads are crappy and the traffic intense, but we made it safely to the Candlestick RV Resort.

see url The Candlestick RV Resort is the most expensive place we have stayed on this trip. I supposed its only because of “location,location,location”. Its simply a parking lot with elect/water/sewer run to each spot. On the other hand we are less than three miles from everything and have been having a blast. While in the campground a tour company from Germany came in for a couple of days. It is the Rotel Tours group and they have a very interesting tour bus and program. The bus has sleeping quarters which are 3 ft wide 3 ft tall and 6 ft long. They provide breakfast and dinner and the costs are supposed to be very reasonable. Below are a couple of shots of the bus.  Looks like a blast!

Inside was a little different! To tell the truth, it reminded me of boot camp. Kinda smelled the same. The two convicts below are still doing hard time.
