RecommendationsI'm perfect for both overnight sleepovers by the beach or at a camping ground!
I've been on huge road trips all the way from California to New York!
My favorite spots near me:
Monterey, Carmel, and Santa Cruz

I recommend iOverlander (iPhone app) that will show you spots to park, RV camps, and side streets that people recommend. I also recommend recreation.gov (iPhone app) where you can find stuff to do like parks and hikes!My personal favorite favorite place is this beautiful beach in Davenport! I always go to downtown Santa Cruz before to explore, shop and eat dinner then sleep overnight at a spot near the beach. In the morning I climb down a cliff to hit the beach and lunch at a cafe across the street. Message me and I'll let you know more cool spots!
Other things to notePlease let me know ahead of time if you will be needing the toilet.

Buster, the converted school bus, was perfect for me. It was well insulated, and the bed was really comfy. And I liked looking like I was going to Burning Man, rather than an RV park.

Yan’s answer

Thank you David! Pleasure meeting you and hosting your week long jazz tour! 🎷🎶

Thank you for the review Jess! I understand your frustration, there were cleaning fees when attending Burning Man that were made clear before. As well as the tolls you passed through that got charged to me, that I asked you to pay with no response. I hope everything works out for you and thank you for giving me the opportunity to host you.

We went camping with Buster and it was just enough space and convince to make the trip easygoing!

Great vehicle to drive, tons of storage space and very useful amenities included! Buster helped keep our tents and shelter attached to the ground during a windstorm in the festival and was very comfortable to sleep in at night. The lights and fan were nice to have inside, and worked great using just the solar panel. We were also able to keep all our devices charged using just the solar panel.
