Hi. Coming over from the UK in August and planning to travel from LA to Vancouver over three weeks using Highways 1 and 101. We have not pre-booked accommodation and hoping to either pitch a tent or get a Motel each evening as we do not want to have specified daily destinations or times, we would like to remain flexible which should add to the adventure.
So, is this advisable or are we asking for trouble? Is it possible to just turn up at camp sites and pitch a tent for one night only or is advance booking a requirement , as it is August will camp sites be full, can you pitch a tent at RV camps?? Any advice appreciated.
Also, any places best to avoid on this route in August?
