Camping/motels for family?
It looks like we are probably a "go" for Spey-O-Rama. Friday of SOR is a non-school day for my kids, so that really helps. More importantly, Olga is excited to go, and to practice beforehand to be competitive, so that could make it even more worthwhile.
Now, I need to start making plans. First, to keep costs down, are there any safe campgrounds reasonably close? Perhaps across the bridge in Marin County? If not, what are the best economy (yeah, right, in SF!) hotel choices that are in nice areas. There could be 2, 3, or 4 of us coming down. If 4 of us come down, I'm sure the 4th (Carol, my wife) would want to spend a day site-seeing, so we could end up taking one extra day, in which case the costs become even more important.
I still need to make sure my work schedule is clear, but with the Friday off, the kids could just miss one day of school for us to drive down, so this looks real hopeful. So any info you guys/gals could provide would be great.
