No politics here, just worry!And justified worry, I think. I would not want to be stealth camping in parts of that route. In fact, There were places in Southern
Cal that I felt were a little sketchy in the campground. My partner and I took turns watching the bikes and stuff so we could take showers, etc.
I sure hope Califonia figures it out so riders can continue to enjoy one of the world's best long rides and have cheap, safe camping!
