Just booked the flights, so will be there 20 - 31 of August. Hope to get an entry in the Surf City Classic.

Budget isn't huge, something under $100 a night would be great. Will be hiring a car, so ok to travel around.

Open to suggestions on what to see, will be first time in the area.

Cheers.

That's enough for a motel 6 with a little money to spare. There's one in south long beach near the university. It's about 5-10 minutes to ocrc. Just minutes to the beach.

You can drive down Pacific coast highwaya and make stops where you find something interesting. There's also the big amusement parks like Disneyland and knotts berry farm.

I'm pretty good but have no airbrush at the moment. What finish were you after?

I just got back from SoCal (yesterday) and there's way too many things to see and do, but here's the list of things I took my 17 y/o kids and their friends to see and this was just the tip of the iceberg:

Day 1
* 6 mile hike to Hollywood sign
* Hollywood walk of fame
* Century City to snap selfie in front of "Nakatomi Plaza" from the movie "Die Hard"
* Lunch on Rodeo Drive
* Drive through Mulholland Dr from HWY 101 to HWY 405
* Ronald Reagan presidential library
* Take Hwy 23 back and cut through to HWY 1 (PCH) around sunset and snap a pic at crest overlooking the ocean
* Hit the Santa Monica pier at night when it's all lit up and snap a pic from Venice Beach

Day 2
* Downhill Mountain Biking at Snow Summit in Big Bear
* Take dirt road from Big Bear to Green Valley Lake (if time permits) we didn't do it this trip
* Snap sunset pic at a turnout going down the mountain

Day 3
* Disney park hopper + fast pass app on smart phone ( only do this on a weekday)

Day 4
* Oceanside Pier - across street is the "Top Gun House"
* Eat lunch at Caroline's on the cliff at La Jolla
* Take Segway Tour in La Jolla to visit seals, you can get within a few feet of them
* check out GasLamp District
* visit Coronado Island
* snap a sunset pic on the ocean

If weather is overcast, then shift your plans around so sunset pics won't be on cloudy days. When traveling, try to get on the roads around 5am and wait for traffic to die down after 9pm when traveling back otherwise you can waste many hours sitting in gridlock... sign up for all the toll roads you want to take in advance, they don't have any cash options which can really screw you in traffic too.

Eat a Tommy's Hamburger and eat at Roberto's Taco's and then you'll feel like a local in no time!

Default Transponder

What system does OCRC use for transponders? Will they be switching to the Rc4 system if they haven't done so already?
