Malibu Beach RV Park, California

After spending 3 weeks at Dockweiler RV Park, we were fortunate enough to spend our last week in Los Angeles at Malibu Beach RV Park. Shortly after we arrived and started to get everything setup, we saw that there were dolphins swimming out in the water! A great welcoming party! We knew right away that this was going to be a fabulous location to camp for the...

Dockweiler RV Park, California

Here are some pros and cons of staying at Dockweiler. Pro: steps to the sand Con: the bike path runs between the park and the sand with lots of traffic Pro: access to the fire pits on the beach Con: directly underneath LAX Pro: convenient location to everything in LA Con: very tight spaces with little to no room between rigs Aaron has always had a dream of...

Shojin, Los Angeles, California

Hayden has eaten at the original Shojin in LA little Tokyo numerous times and has always enjoyed the meals there. She was excited to hear that they had opened a second restaurant. At the new Culver City location, the menu is a bit more concise. However, they have an amazing tasting menu option if you want to get the larger plates, like ramen. What We Ordered We...

Doomie’s Home Cookin’, Los Angeles, California

Ahh, Doomie’s. One of our favorite traditions, when we come to LA, is to meet up with our friends Matt and Meggan at Doomie’s for a gorge fest. What We Ordered We started off with an order of the jalapeño poppers to split amongst the table. These and the buffalo wings are generally our go-to starters. We didn’t give the jalapeño...

True Food Kitchen, Los Angeles, California

For Aaron’s birthday, Hayden’s parents took us out to True Food Kitchen in El Segundo, CA. It’s a new restaurant at this location, but the chain of restaurants opened in 2008 in Arizona and have locations in quite a few states with plans to continue expanding. Great news for us, so we can eat here on our travels! We started off with the kale...

Vegan Street Fair, Los Angeles, California

We got a chance to go to the Vegan Street Fair while we were in Los Angeles and it reminded us of the Portland Vegan Beer and Food Festival. Except without all of the beer… and the drunken interactions. Ah, memories. We got to the fair a little later so we didn’t have to experience the massive lines that people were talking about most of the day. For the...

We lost a tire!

We knew a flat tire was bound to happen, but we didn’t realize that it was going to happen so quickly.  While we were staying in Los Angeles, at some point, we picked up a screw in our tire.  We noticed this as we were getting ready to take the truck in for its first oil change.  Figuring that maybe they could look at it / fix it / patch it, we...

Rice, Manhattan Beach, California

After leaving Portland and moving to Texas, we were seriously lacking in the sushi department. We had been craving sushi for what seemed like years, so when we arrived in LA, we knew this had to be our first stop. The restaurant is very quaint, so it could get busy during dinner. For lunch, however, there were plenty of empty tables. We tried the tasting menu, which...
