We spent a few days at Vandenberg Air Force Base, the Space Launch facility on the west coast. The base was huge and sat right outside the small town of a Lompoc, CA. We did some touring of the rocket launch facilities and bike riding around this very spread out base. We spent a afternoon at the private beach on the base, which due to it’s secure location was very quiet.
We then moved north to San Luis Obispo, staying at a very small Army outpost. We loved the area and nearby picturesque town, with great walking streets with neat houses.
We loved driving through the lush green hills, the weather was great, clear blue skies, cool in the evenings, not too hot during the day. It would also be the spot to do some woodworking to make new closet doors. Cathy did not like the mirror doors on the closet and we looked into getting them replaced with solid wood doors. With the RV factory saying no and a local craftsmen near the factory not being much help, I fired up the Internet to find the Cherry material I would need to do it myself. I was going to do the work at my brothers place next month, but stumbled across this local workspace called MakerSpace. I purchased a one month pass for $45, which allows me 24/7 access to the workspace which had a complete wood shop with all the tools I needed. So between local visits and sightseeing, I was able to make the doors.
Here are the doors installed in the RV, I need to put several coats of semi-gloss on the doors to finish them up.
We did some sightseeing in Morro Bay and made a trip to one of Cathy’s favorite winery…
The final night we had a nice fire, San Luis Obispo was a great area to visit and we need to some again, the town is great to walk around, good weather and food.
