RV personal stuff and gps

Hello there on this not frequently visited forum ;-)

we have to pick up our RV in Hayward in april and I wanted to know an adress where we can buy some personal (camping) stuff in or around Hayward (on our way to Yosemite Park). Also I wanted to buy a Garmin GPS, as they are much cheaper in the US and veeerrrry convinient. Any suggestions about stores nearbye?

Thanks in advance,

Regards

Hmm- from Hayward you would take 580 E. to head to Yosemite. You would certainly pass a few Walmarts and such near either Livermore or further out by Tracy. That would be my first suggestion.

You will also pass a few Target stores- they are a discount department store chain that have some camping gear and maybe a Garmin as well. The 580 corridor passes through so many suburban mall areas where you can find such stores that you might want to just google those stores and find a location near there that suits you. Pleasanton, Livermore, Tracy and Stockton are all possible cities with those kind of stores close to the freeway. Good luck!

REI is a popular camping store.

Frys is a good store to buy the Garmin GPS.

As mentioned Walmart can also work depending on what you are looking for.

Hello Mimi and Macjack,

thanks alot for your suggestions :-). I was not really sure if the drive from Hayward to Yosemite would pass along shopping malls (I underestimated the US ;-). Will have a lock on the websites, too.

Planning every detail of our trip is just so much fun!

Regards,

Claudia
