Harry Basch is the author of Frommer’s Exploring America by RV and RV Vacations For Dummies, and a contributor to Frommer’s USA. His books, articles, and photographs—many of which he produced in collaboration with his late wife, Shirley—have been published internationally for more than 25 years.

Mark Hiss is a San Diego–based writer and photographer, and a third generation Southern Californian.

A native San Franciscan, Erika Lenkert spends her time traipsing through San Francisco and across the globe in search of adventure and great food. She has written for Travel + Leisure, Food & Wine, Bride’s, Wine Country Living, San Francisco Magazine, Los Angeles Magazine, and Time Out. Her latest work is an entertaining and cooking guide called The Last-Minute Party Girl: Fashionable, Fearless, and Foolishly Simple Entertaining (, which mixes fun, humor, and recipes into a tasty, useful guide to living large, Bay Area–style.

Matthew Richard Poole, a native Californian, has authored more than two dozen travel guides to California, Hawaii, and abroad. A regular contributor to radio and television travel programs, he has made numerous guest appearances on the award-winning Bay Area Backroads television show, among other broadcast outlets. Before becoming a full-time travel writer and photographer, he worked as an English tutor in Prague, ski instructor in the Swiss Alps, and scuba instructor in Maui and Thailand. Highly allergic to office buildings and mortgage payments, he spends most of his time traveling the globe in search of new adventures. His other Frommer’s titles include California from $70 a Day, San Francisco from $70 a Day, Los Angeles, Portable Los Angeles, the Irreverent Guide to San Francisco, and Portable Disneyland.
