Total Escape is California, Off the Beaten Path
Introduction
Seeking secluded camping in California? How about a remote cabin retreat? Fishing on a big NorCal river? Off roading trails in the desert? We have the back roads of California covered, from Baja to Shasta. Established in 1996 means Total Escape already has 8000 pages online, 12,000 photos, thousands of links and zillions of ideas, and 1000 small towns --- just on California. DanaMite also sells maps to go along with all these local vacation destinations.
