RE: Wine Country north of San Francisco

Many years ago we used to visit Napa Valley frequently. Nice wines, wasn't crowded and was affordable. Not any more. So many are up to $50+ to taste. Couple of our favorites are Sequoia Grove and Plumpjack. Instead, try Sonoma area wineries. Some are expensive but plenty are $25 or less to taste. East of San Francisco is Livermore with quite a few good wineries. I agree with many who love Paso Robles wineries. If anyone needs a list of recommendations I have been to the majority of wineries in Paso. Many excellent ones and few to avoid. Further south we also love the Buellton/Solvang wineries.

Wine Country north of San Francisco

Can anyone recommend some nice wineries out in the country north of San Francisco? We don't know that area at all. On this trip we'll see the giant General Sherman Sequoia tree, Yosemite NP, San Francisco and north of there some. Not sure how far we'll go north of that area yet. DW wants to see the wine country and take a tour or two.

General Sherman Giant Tree

In about a month we'll be leaving MN and heading to the General Sherman giant Sequoia tree in California. Our route will travel south out of MN on I35 until we intersect I80 in Iowa where we'll head west on I80. We'll travel west to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve in Colorado near Alamosa. Next we'll head west to drive through Monument Valley in Utah and head south to the Grand Canyon in AZ. The route is flexible. Please advise us on places to camp along the way, RV parks, campgrounds etc. and things to see and do. After visiting the giant tree we'll head for the wine country north of San Francisco. All of your recommendations will be carefully considered. Thank you.

RE: Best/Favorite RV Resort

Hey Jonas, Born in Boston, Red Sox fan - American League. And, Brooklyn Dodgers fan - National League. Moved to SFV 1956, became LA Dodgers fan ... Fan of both teams!!! So, what did we do when Dodgers played Red Sox in WS? HA HA Root for good games and didn't care who won. Magic Nights. Trust me, we would love to see a Red Sox game in Boston one day! BTW, we love watching the Padres play at Petco Park but it doesnt matter if the Dodgers are playing in Oakland, Anaheim, San Diego...Dodgers fans will always outnumber the home team fans, except maybe in San Francisco. Still, Petco Park is a great place to watch a game.

RE: Best/Favorite RV Resort

My favorite campgrounds are around Zion National Park, Utah..Bryce Canyon National Park is amazing as well. I love Arizona, Nevada as well but why stop there? Come to California and you will be amazed...Yosemite, The Central Coast(Avilla, Pismo, etc), The Sierras, even Half Moon Bay (40 minutes from San Francisco) are phenomenal. San Diego is nice too...you can camp at Mission Bay RV Park or Campland on the Bay and catch a Uber to downtown San Diego, even see a baseball game at beautiful Petco Park (I'm a Dodgers Fan)...great experience. BTW, I was born and raised in Florida...I know Florida like the back of my hand but there is no comparison to camping in California. Yes, the gas is expensive out here but it is well worth it. Cal is great for camping but the speed limit blows and so does your fuel prices. Left Oregon a month or so and paid 3.29 for diesel and got to CA and it was 4.19. Add to the fact that everywhere is packed to the gills it's just not worth going there anymore. Sure we'll go back but not this year.

RE: Free overnight camping in small towns

We found many small town city parks to stay. I don't recall that they were free but very reasonable. There are also county parks. Just Google the small towns in the direction you're heading. Sometimes the town Chamber of Commerce is a good place for information and they sometimes have web sites. Some very good ones were in North Dakota. We've also used fairgrounds (when there's nothing going on) and they are quiet and reasonable. Even when visiting daughter in San Francisco we stayed at a fairgrounds which was a fraction of the cost of a RV park.

RE: Ghost Towns

For a curated town we agree with Bannock or Bodie. The road back into Bodie can be badly washboarded depending on weather and whether the County has run a grader over it recently. For a truly abandoned town try Anamas Forks, above Silverton, CO. With your "C" you won't be able to go on up Mastadon Gulch to the mine camps, but AF itself is neat. Check out the San Francisco newspapers glued to the inside of the walls in the "bay window" house as insulation. Caution! The floor is rotten near the door. There are two seasons in that part of Cololrado, Winter and August.
