Gotta love that Central Coast! I imagine you're staying a bit cooler than we are down here in SoCal. I love watching the surfers and occasional surfing dolphins north of the rock. We also like taking a drive up to San Simeon to see the elephant seals and then stopping in Cambria on the way back for a bite to eat...and of course, some olallieberry jam from Linn's -- some for us; some for Christmas gifts. I envy you, Jerry!

Enjoy!

What Camp ground.

Jerry,

Is that Morro Dunes campground or Morro Strand?

How far in advance did you have to make these reservations? Seems like they are always booked out 6+ months on weekends! I'm still a weekend warrior at this stage of the game...


Thanks!

We are at Morro Dunes cg. Its nice, clean, and quite except for the loud seagulls. I made reservations one year in advance. We go up to Bodega Bay every year at this time. So we decided to stretch this to a two week trip.

First time here for us. Just finished walking a round the shoos and pigging out on fish and chips. Might walk down to the water later and fish for perch.

If you get over to Baywood Park then you gotta try out Nardonne’s Pizzeria and/or Baywood Tavern. My daughter and Son-in-law are the owner operators of both. Great food and drinks.

Hi Brian,
Might take a drive there tomorrow but they don't open until 3pm. I'll talk to the wife and our friends. Maybe we can drive over for early dinner

We leave Thursday morning for home so tomorrow night is packing up time

Hello All!

We recently (Jan 018) purchased a 2018 Hurricane 29M and I have followed this thread (thank you Jerry and many others for it's content) closely while reading each post here. Great information on this forum, I've made several of the mod as I came a cross them. Thanks to all contributors!

I wanted to share a mod I made to the over-cab bunk ladder storage. If you use the bunk regularly as we do, you probably hate the storage location. So I removed the clip hardware from under the master bed and relocated it to the driver side rear corner, the gap between the slide and rear wall. Perfect fit and not visible when slide is closed. In the attached photo's, you can see it when slide is open but stores clean and out of the way. Sorry for the side view photos.

Safe travels --

I didn’t like the storage spot either! I store the ladder under the bunk with the hooks pointing up at the end of the mattress, they don’t hit the ceiling when the bed is up.

Glad you’re enjoying Jerry’s mod thread, lot of great ideas and information from some really Great people!!!

So I guess an old dog can learn a new trick or I can learn something new. I have been using a fridge stopper when the mh is in storage mode. The stopper prevents the door from closing so no smell or mildow.

Well I just noticed the fridge and freezer doors have stoppers built in. Stupid me for never seeing this. Pics of old stopper and new
