    West Coast Driving

    Hey all,

    Will be in Oregon City tomorrow, then headed south to San Fran. Can I get some advice on what roads to take? I am nervous on narrow roads, at elevation, with small shoulders, no guard rails, and constant switchbacks. I can handle it ok with wider shoulders and wider lanes. So, with this in mind, what's my best route for me and my 303? Appreciate the adviCe.

    Stay on hiway 101, stay off hiway 1 above bodega bay.
    Check out bodega bay Rv park, awesome park, 707-875-3701,
    Full hookups near the ocean.

    How far south are you going?

    You could get over on I-5 for easy going.

    As golsp8 said I5 is easy going however it nothing but dead rolling grass hills to see. If your just driving to get there that's the way. I5 to 505 to 80 and that will take you into SF. If your looking to sight see 101 would be the way however depending on you get on sections would be narrow and winding.

    What area of San Fran are you going?

    San Fran is a destination the wife is interested in. Don't know anything else except it's as far Cali-south we're going. Son coming up to visit from Huntington Beach. Will take suggestions for San Fran if you want to share. Any between OC and San Fran actually.

    North of SF - Bodega Bay Rv is a good place. I had seen someone mention here about another place in Marin County (closer than Bodega Bay) I don't remember the name.

    Just South you might try Half Moon Bay, there are 2 RV parks next to the water, more or less parking lots. A little south of Half Moon Bay is Coastanoa. If has a distant view of the ocean with good beaches maybe 30 mins from SF outside of commute hours. The Half Moon Bay Area is very nice. A few years ago we stayed at Coastanoa, it is also a good place.
