Frances... two pieces of practical advise regarding Los Angeles:

1. Learn a little bit of Mexican/Central-American Spanish before visiting
and
2. Try to avoid driving that motorhome in rush-hour traffic on the major freeways.

Tip 1 will yield you the best food from those communities have to offer (eat off of a Taco truck at least once!) and tip 2 will help you avoid crawling on the freeways in traffic at 5 miles-per-hour.

Wherever you go you'll have a good time I hope!

Frances,

Friends of mine retired last year, bought a trailer (after successfully testing living conditions for about two years) and have been travelling the US and Canada ever since. They researched RV camps at these sites:

Trailer Life Magazine: Follow the Road to Adventure
and
Meet RVers and Go RVing | RV Owners Online Community at Good Sam Club

with good satisfaction. Bookings are all possible on line.

BTW, most such places in North America offer free internet connection, so if you have a computer on board (laptop?) you can post your adventures here as you go

Alfredo

Hi Frances,

I see you're en route but perhaps you'll check in at an internet cafe along the way ...

Hope you all have a wonderful trip!

Thank you all! We are having the most wonderful time imaginable!

The pics I'm taking are apparently too big to upoad here, but I just posted some showing the fantastic evening we spent eating Pizza at Dusty's house...
