Yeah, the only rv that could possibly get there would be a small 4WD truck camper, and it would be very un-level. A better site would be the flatter area just below the ATV near the center of the photo.

"On the Other Hand"

On the third hand, the waves are so crowded (millions of people within easy driving distance) that it is often difficult to get a wave. That sounds like I am exaggerating, but I am not.

Years ago, I knew a guy who grew up in Orange County before World War II -- he said that folks used to camp out on the beaches, wherever they wanted to -- and that there were even primitive home-made truck campers boondocking right on the beach. Those days are long gone.
Early 1970's, my wife and I flew out to Southern California during the winter to get away from the New England cold/snow and visit her family.
Her cousin blew my mind when he announced his weekend plans:
Saturday skiing (snow) & Sunday surfing.
Closest I ever came to not returning home from a trip

The only thing better than surfing Saturday and skiing Sunday is doing the same thing during the work-week -- cuts down on the crowds!!

And the next best thing is surfing during the winter and seeing the snowy mountains while you wait for the next wave. Meantime, the off-shore wind blows the crests of the breaking waves back out to sea, causing huge bright rainbows that travel along the shore as each wave breaks. Then (for a triple treat) a pod of dolphins will come swimming by, jumping through the waves and surfing alongside of us.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that a little house costs a million dollars.

Beautiful!! If I concentrate on your photo, I can hear the wind through the sagebrush.

How cold did it get at night out there??

IIRC, it dipped into the 20's. We had some strong wind gusts several times during the night with dead calm between them. Was a bit strange.
