laptop camping California's vast beauty graces us daily. This is a glorious state that has been attracting people worldwide for centuries. And now we are all starting to see the changes. Big time! The hords of people, the traffic nightmares, the shopping centers everywhere & the overdevelopment of suburbia. This crowdedness doesn't stop at the city limits either. Visit any National Park on the wrong weekend & you will be totally turned off to the whole 'camping experience'.

This is where Total Escape comes in! We can show you how to enjoy the hidden California, learn to respect the lands, find the amazingly beautiful not-so-popular spots & discover a new kinda peace.

Wildlife is best viewed when you are slow, quiet, aware & sitting still, and preferrably not when tossing over snack foods.

wild fattyThe first place to start is with yourself! Learn to slow down, plan to relax (for days, not minutes) & give yourself all the time you need to enjoy nature & your thoughts. Discover the earth again: peaceful lakes, lush wildflower fields and deep canyons. It's all out there - for you to cherish. And yes, you can go alone.

There are plenty places to explore on the weekends, but finding your own private waterfall or secluded picnic meadow will be easier with the proper maps. Turn off the television & get back to 'yourself'. Your real self. You, without all the advertisements bombarding your brain. You, without the need to watch the nightly news. You, without the daily worry of all the negative crap. Go outside! Take a drive, do a hike, pack a picnic, enjoy life...more.

your 'life journey' begins today. start exploring

"For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard (food in the garden) a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness." - Andy Rooney
