So, It's a LOT of driving, but here is my route up.

Saturday the 14th, from Crestline to Caswell Memorial SP just north of Modesto
Sunday from there to Lake Mendocino via the bay area and up the 101 to Ukiah.
Knowing your love for beagles, I wonder if you've ever stopped in oldtown Santa Rosa to see the Charlie Brown and Snoopy statue. Traffic in Santa Rosa is usually very busy, but the statue is just a couple of blocks off 101, and is really charming.

Have a great trip!

We assumed that the statue was in front of the Charles Schulz Museum at the northern edge of Santa Rosa, but discovered when we got there that it's quite a distance away in downtown. But if you do go to the museum there's also a gift shop next door with some nice exhibits and of course Snoopy stuff to buy. Here's how to get to the statue:

From Highway 101 (northbound), take the Downtown exit, stay in the left lane and at the first signal make a left turn onto West Third Street. Stay in the right lane and follow this to the second light, making a right onto Wilson Street. At the first stop sign make a left onto Fourth Street and you will see the sculpture located on the northwest corner of Wilson and Fourth in Deport Park. You will find parking and the Santa Rosa Convention & Visitors Bureau in the small park.

the traffic on 101 in the santa rosa area is somewhat like a parking lot
suggest you allow extra time

I've travelled all over the United States and Canada. Californian's are the only people who put a "the" in front of Interstate highway numbers and other road numbers. Any idea how this phenomena came to be??

"THE" is a So. Cal. thing with that array of freeways and News Coptors.
It is only now just catching on up here in No. Cal.

It is a beautiful drive between Redding and Eureka
theTrinitys are beautiful as you say.. I spent about 3 yrs up there.. First yr was my Sr. yr in high school @ Hayfork.. then stayed on at the ranch out of Hyampom.. I have always wanted to go back there to live, but its sooo expensive now, and growing fast! Even tho Hayfork will always be small its gorgious country.......

Hi all - just thought we'd add a note on our drive up SR 299 from Redding to the coast. I was a bit concerned after reading some of the comments about hills, but it is a super road and a beautiful drive! Don't think I'd drive it west-to-east tho' - might be my imagination, but there seemed to be a lot more uphill pulls on the west side of the summit(s). Our GeezerMobile (Mazda MPV) performed flawlessly and it was a good trip - see no worries for other FGRV-ers on this route ... YMMV however.

About in the middle of the drive, there is a BLM CG at Junction City - $5/night with Golden Age Passport - YES! Basic FS with decent vault facilities and good water, but no dump station. At that price per night, we should have stayed longer! The host said there was also another BLM CG east near Douglas City, but we did not check that one out.

Happy camping, everyone - see ya' in Bandon! L 'n D

So, do you put your "pop" in a bag or a sack?
