    There is no signs of any kind indicating the name of the campground, river, or town. No cell service, so I can't even check weather GPS for name of city. Doesn't matter, it's beautiful. :)

    Attempting to boondock in San Francisco… you’ll see how that turns out. Still nice to visit Sausalito which was North of the bridge (about 3 miles away) but certainly can’t park an RV anywhere in S.F. Ended up in Oakland. Regrouping to take transit into S.F. tomorrow.

    Cost $31 to take the Alcatraz Cruise to the Island and all tours are self-guided. My video includes the Cell House Audio provided by Alcatraz.

    Taking out Olga’s bad transmission. And as with everything else on Olga, a complication arises.
