Argh! I am man! I can do it all! By myself!
Living like that has its drawbacks, the main one being that I can miss out on some good things because I didn't poke around in the right places or because (oh no) my intellect isn't as powerful as my ego believes it is.
So... here I am, in the northwest corner of California, hoping to make stops all down the coast. I've done a lot of research, but I suspect there's a lot more to know—things that Google can't or won't tell me.
So... I'm going to get off my loner guy high horse and ask my readers:
Where are some good/interesting/beautiful places to camp or just visit in California, more or less in the area west of I-5 and north of San Francisco?I humbly await your answers.
