Newbie seeks advice
Posted by Robin on October 10, 2003 at 20:55:55:
I'm planning to spend the winter in the California desert, doing the quiet contemplative thing. However, I'm a total newbie to Californis; I'm from the northern wetlands. I have a sturdy Dodge van so 4WD backroads are obviously out of the question. Where specifically can I go and just park for a couple weeks at a time in some sort of dispersed/open camping situation? I'm not into the RV campground scene at all, not wanting to spend limited resources on fees, or listen to people's generators and televisions--I value quiet, privacy, and simplicity. I'm drawn to Death Valley, but I'm open to hearing about other recomendations. Thanks to any who answer this.
