The City By the Bay

Marin County Coast

The latest turn in our Western States Odyssey took us into San Francisco.  And if you’ve never had the opportunity, a great thrill ride is to take a 31-foot RV and drive it over the Golden Gate Bridge and straight through the heart of San Francisco.  I believe if you put it dead center one of the lanes on a major San Francisco artery, you will have about 5 inches to spare on either side of the wheels before you hit the white lines on either side.  Add in other buses, cable cars / the Muni, hills and hordes of other drivers, and you’re in for loads of excitement.

Welcome to San Fran

We parked the RV in a park right next to Candlestick Park, which on most days is a quiet neighborhood.

Within a couple of hundred yards is a former landfill turned into a recreation area (walking and jogging trails) with a constant view of the Bay, and you can also do a nice run up Bay View Hill:

Best part of San Francisco:  meeting up with friends and family we haven’t seen for years.  We really should make the effort to do that more often.

Next:  heading east, to Davis and Reno
