We drove up to Fresno on Tuesday night to get some fixes done to our new SMB. We we able to escape Fresno on Wednesday afternoon and drove part way to Monterey. We stayed at San Luis Reservoir, which was surprisingly nice and uncrowded for a developed area.
Thursday we drove through Monterey and headed South on 1 part way down Big Sur. We then drove up into the mountains and found an amazing area to set up our camp.

Friday we headed down to Los Olivos for a bit of wine tasting. We then headed up to Figueroa mountain to enjoy some wine and relaxation.
We then head South East to our friends place near Mt Pinos. Their property is bordered by Los Padres National Forest so we basically camped in their backyard.
It was a great trip and the weather could not have been any more perfect. The van kept us nice and warm, even when the night time temperatures dropped down to 33. Thanks again to everyone who gave us advice and information for this trip.
