On Our Way To California Beach Camping

June 2, 2014

I went for a run in Las Vegas this morning… Talk about hot! But it was a good run. On my schedule today I was supposed to run 7 miles with 8 x 100s. I went out for 50.01 minutes. I felt like I was pushing a 7 min pace but it could have been faster… I will never know. 🙂 I did hop onto a cool little loop.

I came around the corner and the girls were outside (well the 3 older ones). They were my little cheering section. I finished off my 8 x 100’s running them back and forth on the street. My 2nd child went picture happy with my phone…

It was a good run. After finally getting our tires changed in Vegas, we got on the road at about 10:45. 🙂 It is about a 4 hour drive to our beach camping grounds in Leo Carrillo, Malibu. Well it is now 5:55 p.m. and we are still 30 minutes away. Yeah… The adventures of care-a-vaning with others. The more people, the more stops. We had many adventures of driving just from Vegas to California! 1st was our tire and having to take that in; 2nd adventure… The Fullmer’s daughter passed out at one of the gas stations. That was a little scary (she is ok, thank goodness)…

Our next stop was supposed to be a “quick” stop and they were aloud to pick out a pack of gum… Yeah… The crowd in the gas station was kind of a lot! But I love seeing the military!!! So it made our stop at the gas station not so bad.

We had another stop and took about an hour (we decided to get dinner instead of spending the evening setting up kitchen at our campsite). Of course the minute we get back on the freeway, my youngest said she had to go to the bathroom. :/ We are only 40 minutes away from our destination… So I did something I am not proud to admit but driving for an extra 3 1/2 hours with 4 loud girls, we were not going to stop. :/

Yes there was a container below and a cop right next to us. :/ We also had a few encounters with the trailer today… It took up a lot of road and blocked traffic a few times. 🙂

Well… We finally arrived to the beach and our campsites!

Of course my girls have to be the ones to find and catch a bird (that is disgusting :)) and even the Rangers here wouldn’t touch them… They even closed the ranger door when they brought the bird to them.

Then of course we walked to the beach… Beautiful!

Then we had our fire and Dutch oven cobblers…
