Big Bear 2016

In September 2016 we stayed two nights in Big Bear, CA. We had rented a cabin from “Cabins 4 Less.” These cabins were clean and well stocked. Check out their website http://www.bigbearcabins4less.com. These cabins have basic items for you to use. In the bathroom and in the kitchen (pots,toilet paper,soap,mugs). They are heated and they have hot water!! You just need to bring your sheets and blankets. They are also pet friendly. Its only $9.00 for your pet to stay with you. If you leave the place clean there is no cleaning fee.

During the day, the air was brisk and in the evening it dipped down to less than 37 degrees. It was cold!!! Bring extra blankets and jackets you are going to use them.

Our Van

The mini-van. We are calling her “Blue Magic!!” We have gone camping twice and taken a couple of trips to the mountains in this car.

We decided on this van because you can take out the back seats and fold down the second-row seats. This will leave a full-size mattress space. Great to fit two adults and one doggie perfectly. It also has a few outlets to run a heater or a laptop for movies.With the mini-van being capable of towing 3500 lbs. we are looking for a light-weight trailer to tow. We are also looking into an R.V.but for right now we love our mini-van.

So if you are looking to go on a short road trip a mini-van is the right car to use.
