I got up and packed pretty quickly. I decided not to deal with the pay shower, which was $1 in quarters for three minutes of hot water. About 30 seconds down the road from the campground was the entrance to the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area. This is one of the few places in America where you can ride four wheelers and motorcycles on sand dunes AND be by the ocean. I’ve done the dunes at Glamis (awesome), but I’ve always wanted to go here. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the time or the right equipment to check it out. Sand with a worn out tire and 100 pounds of gear just didn’t sound fun. So I rode on. I bypassed the 1 where it goes from Oxnard down to Santa Monica via Malibu since I’ve already done it several times, and just took the 101. I made it to my friend’s house in San Diego in the early afternoon, and he was able to come home a few minutes early from work. I made him come eat Thai food with me since I had been craving it for a while. I got to have a long, hot shower and sleep in a real bed again, which was great.
