Thanks to the folks on this board I'm putting the finishing touches on planning my Pacific Coast tour, and had some final nit picky questions.
- Can someone explain how the hiker/biker sites work (don't have em on the east coast)? Do you need reservations? What if they run out of space? Are they nice sites or is it worth it to reserve a regular site?
- How is camping at the New Brighton State Beach in Santa Cruz? It seems to be in the middle of the town, and I'm wondering if it wouldn't be better to continue on to say Sunset Beach.
- I was planning on grabbing a hotel in Monterey. Any recommendations, or would I be better off staying in Veterans Memorial park.
- I'm a little more concerned with security since some of the campgrounds seem to be in more populated areas. My last tour I only took a cable lock but I'm thinking of a small u-lock for this trip. What do the locals tour with?
