@sseibold and I left Eugene, Oregon Monday morning to head back to California. We opted out on attempting I-5 through Winter weather warnings and took the coastal route down Hwy 101. Rain all the way to Eureka, California except for 45 minutes (above photo). We made it home to Bakersfield, California on Tuesday night after a long day on the road.
In Eureka, we talked to some other travelers who had also left Eugene Monday morning on their way to Palm Springs to meet up with family. We ran into them later at a rest stop, gas station and McDonald's. Turns out, Jerry has one son who is a professor at the University of Oregon and another who is a professional photographer in New York. We had a lot of fun talking to Jerry, Suzi and their two dogs intermittently between Eureka and Ukiah.
Our overnight stay in Eureka was the only time in 12 stops that we had internet issues. Couldn't connect. But, we did have some great pizza at the Brick & Fire Bistro!
