One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

The only problem with last minute decision to go Camping at Bodega Bay on a three day weekend, is if you don't make reservations 10 days in advance there are NO SPOTS AVAILABLE, drove all day on Saturday to find a spot along the coast and ended up in Fort Bragg (100 miles North), they had about four spots available, most of the campground closed due to the high surf and flowing into Lake Cleone, Small area of beach to fly on Sad, no more then 50' lines Sad, until a big wave just about swept us out in to the ocean Sad, the wife wet from head to toe Cry, kite bag soaked Cry, my Metal Detector soaked that I now need to send back to Whites for repairs Cry, battery on camper not holding charge Angry, the generator battery going bad Angry, had to pull start, the camper heater going out on the last day Angry, but the plus thing is I had light winds and was able to fly the Moonie in a field next to the old access road Grin.

Sounds like an almost perfect weekend camping.
You should have backtracked the fifteen miles to Lawson's Landing/Dillon Beach.  They are still open, just most of the pasture/marsh area fenced off now.  No hookups other than a water available and a dump station though.  Oh yeah, get used to cows wandering thru your campsite!  They do have a couple miles of beach to fly on though.

Sorry to hear you had so many glitches, well you know now what you have to do for mantainence early in the season. We had a weekend camping trip like that once, but we started in Fort Bragg, ended up down to Half Moon Bay before we found an open campsite, I guess a bit better though since nobody ended up in the ocean who didn't intend to be there. Better luck next time.

Whoa. I read in the paper that camping was the cheapest way to have fun, guess everybody else read that too.
Will note for future "reserve waaayy in advance. Say how bout the youth hostel on Fort Baker? 72$/night(private room). dang prices went up too. Woldnt need the RV tho. Beautiful place tho. Point Reyes has one too i think.
