So my oldest (14) just detached his patella skateboarding. Maui vacation canceled while surgery / recovery happens. Youngest (12) is (obviously) devastated we are not going to Hawaii. As compensation, I suggested we might want to take a camping / surfing trip together while Mom take care off the invalid. Problem is all campgrounds seem filled at this time of year. I could just take a week off, stay home and drive up and down probably from San Diego to Malibu on day trips, but am thinking a few days cruising the coast with the youngster in tow might be fun. Any ideas on how I can do this? I have options as we have a trailer as well as a Roadtrek conversion van or a tent.
