Making reservations has never been the way we like to travel, we feel if we were meant to be there then somehow it would happen, if not then we make other arrangements. In the 10 years we have been full time traveling this is only the second time this happened so we figure our odds are good.
Well our odds went way down even more the next few days.
It seemed everywhere we showed up they were full, so I began calling ahead to where we thought we were going to stay and explore and unbelievably they were all booked. Now what? Of course, change our plans again and again and finally again!
This was not even the holiday weekend yet and we were having some major issues getting into parks. We are not willing to change our ways about making reservations so we began calling other areas to see which places we would not need reservations.
We were in Grants Pass, Oregon when we needed some cooler temps so instead of continuing south on I-5 into more heat we opted to take US Route 199 south to Crescent City, California out of the heat and back on the coast.
We left and headed south to Arcata, California where we hooked up at Mad River Rapids RV Park for the night. Check out our separate review for this park.
It was late by the time we arrived so since the Fiesta Grill & Cantina was located within feet of the park we decided to have some Mexican food and to say it was good is such an understatement. Read our entire separate review on our dining experience.
