travel & packing


(1) Arrive to LAX, Terminal 2 on Sunday August 21st.
The Santa Barbara Airbus will depart from LAX at 5pm.
I have booked this bus just for the course. However, this is a company that regularly runs to and from LAX.  See their website, but you should wait for the Airbus at the center island beneath the GREEN markers/signs announcing “Flyaway Buses, Long Distance Vans”. You must be at the proper stop to ensure pick-up. Here is an picture of the location we pick up: (There are Green signs at each terminal.)


You will be brought to Carpinteria State Beach Campground for the first night. You camp right on the beach beside the ocean. It is really awesome.

(2) Departure home is on Saturday Sept 3rd at 545am.
The same company, bus booked just for us, will pick us all up at the University of California Reserve, Rancho Marino, that the course will be held at and take us back to Terminal 2, AirCanada, at LAX.
