      Can anyone advise two Brits in their late 50s, who love camping, where to stay for a three-night stay next November '17?
      I have camped there before in 1980, but no longer being the young buck I never was, we would like to stay in a more convenient location.
      Alas, the logistics of packing all of our camping stuff is already leading to WW3 as we shall be driving there from San Francisco, before going back to Napa Valley.
      Many thanks for your suggestions and advice.

      Will be in SFO for 3 full days

      San Francisco Nov 23, 2016 at 11:11 AM

      Hi Guys,

      I will be going for the first time in SFO on the third week of December before I head to LA. I was going to go with my sibling but ended up now going solo.

      I just thought if anyone of you who lives in SFO, and is free, could show me around? Nothing better than having a good company by a local. I decided not to take any summer classes at Uni (currently studying Law) - so I am looking forward to a memorable summer holiday in the USA. 

      Will be in SFO from 16-19 December 2016. Please let me know :) 32yo; male; traveller; sensible person here. 

      Regards from the Land Down Under :)

      What Transfer time needed at LAX?

      Los Angeles Nov 25, 2016 at 5:49 AM

      I am planning flights and found one with Alaska Airlines arriving at Terminal 6 - with a 90 minute wait for another flight with QANTAS departing from Tom Bradley Terminal - do you think this is doable? or should more time be allowed between flights
      Are Alaska Airlines usually on time?
      Both flights will be international flights
      Many thanks,

    • US-Roadtrip to California in 2017

      California Nov 14, 2016 at 6:54 AM

      Hello :)

      Me (Jennifer, 19) and my best friend (Lea, 18) want to do a road trip in fall 2016 by car.
      - We plan to rent a car, since i work for a big company, we can rent a car through our company rental card. So our age will not be a problem. A normal sedan car would be fine for us.
      - We like to / can stay up to 20days
      - We like to stay in hotels. Not 5 Stars, but the hotels should be good!

      We want to start in Los Angeles, and visit the city for a few days. Then maybe drive to Las Vegas and see the city. From Las Vegas we want to see something of the desert, maybe DeathValley, Monument National Park, Grand Canyon? :) And then it would be nice to go from Las Vegas to San Francisco and visit the city. After that we like to drive the coastal highway one down to either Los Angeles or San Diego (if the drive from LA to San Diego is nice?).

      Soo... my questions:
      Do you think its a good idea? What should we see visit? How many days do you advice, and where? Any idea how much it will cost? We saw that hotels in LA are around (200-400$/night per room for a double room). Are the other cities similar to that price? What should we definitely do and what definitely avoid? :)

      Thank yo for your answers,
      - Jennifer :)

      I've an early morning flight out of OAK and need to leave my car for 7-9 days. Is there a "NOT too pricey, but not too trashy" hotel option that has a shuttle to the airport and will let me leave my car there for a nominal fee? Ideas?

      Nobody posts in this forum! Well, here are a few questions :)

      by greencargirl Online Now Feb 26, 2012 at 2:52 PM

      Hi! I wonder if anyone will even see this, but we have a few questions about visiting Oakland.

      What's the best way to get from Lake Merritt to the Rockridge restaurant area? I'll be travelling with a couple of kids (a tween and a teen), and we're staying at a b&b type place right near the park on the Lake. Any public transportation tips will be great, such as how to get to Piedmont dining area, Berkely dining area (thinking of splurging there on Chez Pannisse, but not sure yet), UCB, Palo Alto, etc.

      Thanks everyone (anyone?)!
