We made the trip north in about 2 hours yesterday from Paso Robles to just south of Gilroy. We are staying in a park (another tight squeeze) north of Monterey (about 5 miles south of Gilroy on Hwy 101) because we couldn't find a RV park to accommodate us closer to Monterey. We arrived around noon yesterday, after setting up we took off for wineries in this area. We didn't find any that really fit our tastes. This one winery looked nice but didn't like their wines.
