Hiking Malibu in Crocs and socks!

That RV Life Podcast traveled to Malibu, CA to hike the Corral Canyon Trail, sample local seafood, and in hopes of spotting actor, Leonardo DiCaprio.

Although Lindsay did not reach her goal of saying hello to Leonardo as his unblemished chest reflected the ocean and sand like glitter on a strippers dance pole, the day was still a success!

As we hiked to the top of Corral Canyon, the views were confounding at every turn. Mountains, cliffs, ocean, sand, and polychromatic skies as far as the gazing eyes could see. 

Once at the peak of Corral Canyon Trail, Lindsay soaked in the peace and sunshine for quite some time.

Joey wore his tan Crocs to match the colors of the trail, and a few people asked him how they held up. Of course, he told them the Crocs held up great. After all, Joey once completed a 15k trek around Washington DC that resulted in no back pain the next day. Lindsay, of course, shook her head in disappointment to make sure the Malibu locals didn't hold the so-called ugly footwear against her. Malibu is such a breathtaking place that even tan colored Crocs couldn't detract from its majesty. 

Public parking directly on the shoulder of Pacific Coast Highway can save you money! You can park your motorhome throughout the day for FREE! No need to pay for expensive parking. Just be sure to obey posted signs containing time limits. 

What's cooler than spending the day on a beach in Malibu and anytime you decide, the family can head a few yards back to the RV for naps, food, shower, and air conditioning! 

We can't recommend the local Malibu RV Park because we didn't patronize the place. After reading the myriad of negative reviews on Google and Yelp, we had to pass. 

Want to skip cooking? Malibu Seafood is a quick walk from Corral Canyon Trail and has tremendous views of the ocean and PCH. The price range is fair, and the food was fantastic, as was the service.

If you ever make it to Malibu, let us know! We hope you enjoy your hike, views and the food. If you happen to see Leonard DiCaprio, be sure to take a photo but be sure to not look directly at him. According to Lindsay, his beauty is rumored to match that of the very Malibu of which he resides.

That RV Life will update more images as soon as we can locate them!

SacWest RV Park and Campground should have the adjective "resort" at the end of their name. They offer an abundance of amenities, and whether you are passing through or planting your arse for a while, your family can enjoy them all. 

Located at 3951 Lake Road in West Sacramento, CA. SacWest sits on the southern end of the city. Be sure to make your reservation well in advance because this little utopia, just one exit from the Vic Fazio Wildlife Area, seems to sell out fast. In fact, That RV Life was placed on a 2-month waiting list for a long-term spot. 

In addition to keeping the park clean and orderly, or as Joey puts it "symmetrical," SacWest offers a saltwater swimming pool, dog park, playground, petting zoo, paddle boats, Friday night S'mores parties, and other special events on many of the weekends.  

The staff will greet you with a cheerful "HELLO!" at check-in and don't forget to take a look around the general store for some items you may have forgotten. From drinks, ice, and snacks; to firewood, t-shirts, RV supplies, and toys for the pool, SacWest General Store has you covered. Feeling a little tired from too many drinks by your fire pit the night before? Ring up the 24K Grill, serving breakfast and lunch from 8a to 1p daily. 

With all of the amenities available, That RV Life's favorite activity is evening walkabouts. The views are tremendous and feel free to rent one of the adult-sized tricycles to cruise the park if don't feel like walking. While on your short trek around the park, you'll get to see the petting zoo, lakefront cabins, the dog park, and cookout areas among other things. 

When you're ready to head indoors, don't forget to stop by the SacWest clubhouse! There you will find video games, pinball, books, a piano and a large meeting area. Feel like cooking in a full-sized kitchen? It's in the clubhouse too! You can do laundry, take a shower, or even hit the pooper to avoid stinking up the camper! Although, if you've brought your children or your in-laws, That RV Life highly recommends stinking up the camper. Helps to make those special memories even more special.

SacWest has it all and whether you are passing through or planning an extended stay, be sure to visit them when traveling anywhere near Sacramento CA. You won't regret it! (Unless the in-laws later hate you for not utilizing the bathhouse pooper.) 

That RV Life could go on and on! However, here's a link to the SacWest website instead. Be sure to tell them Linz and Joey sent you and that you heard about them on That RV Life Podcast/Blog. 

Enjoy your travels and remember, be safe! But not too safe! Live a little!

Kissing Cousins, Black Widow Bite, and Drug Chasing

You'll be checking your shoes and your family tree after this episode! Joey and Lindsay discuss the night Joey was bitten by a Black Widow which resulted in a 5-night stay at Sutter Health Hospital in Sacramento, CA. That RV Life can be rewarding and deadly! We also play an audio clip of a lady from Ohio telling a news reporter her cousin burned her house down. When the reporter asks if she knew why her cousin would want to do that, she replied: "He's angry because he can't get with me..."  

It's a long one. Listen to this podcast on a long drive or during a shift at work. There are some cool clips throughout the podcast, so don't skip ahead! The song at the end will make you laugh for days!
