A long drive today down 101 to our campsite #38. We will be here until the 1st before heading to Point Mugu NAS near Point Hueneme.
Vandenberg is home to the 30th Space Wing and Department of Defense space and missile testing base placing satellites into polar orbit and supporting the Minuteman III ICBM. The base encompasses 98,000 acres between Lompoc, Santa Maria and the coast.
Wikipedia has a more comprehensive history of the base if you are interested.
Our campsite #38 for $20/day is a real bargain..concrete pads,full hookups and I've been told there are many deer and coyotes. So far have not seen any deer,but have heard coyotes at night. Staff very friendly and when we arrived and inquired about washing motorhome, were told we could by the dump station. So before settling into site, John did the chore as it was in need of washing.
Hard to get overall photo of campground,so just took of our area.
