Is there any camping?

The population looks small in Graeagle (nice to me). Is Mount Shasta too far? Anything with a swimming lake sounds good to me, too.

Thanks and the date looks good, school is out and it's sandwiched nicely between Memorial May and July Independence.

I would be coming up from the Bay Area. This could be my first meet up!
What those other two forgot to mention is the newbie(s) must provide the drinks and “entertainment” ala prospect in an outlaw bike club. Please don’t disappoint.

I can look at other weekends or I can look at alternative places to stay and just wanted to get a little input from the crew. I know we can't please everyone so I will look at this as an advisory committee
Are you looking for ideas for alternate lodging in the Graeagle those two weekends, or dates outside of those two weekends? Anything in that area would be great, and I like those weekends too...

If we need to find another destination because things are just too booked up there, I'm sure we can find something away from traffic and tourists...

I am working on what looks like a possible good option for lodging. I will update in the next few days to a week. If not we will recalibrate and have a somewhat democratic discussion.

Fortuna was nice because there is camping right next door to the hotels.

Eel River Brewing is amazing too. Best fish and chips and onion rings ever.

The Weaverville trips covered the entire area you mention pretty well including all of the roads 299/3/36/1/101... Along with a few choice goat roads that Chip and Mike found for us (Forks of the Salmon was awesome!) We had lunch in Eureka both times.


Jess and I just did a trip to the Lost Coast and stayed in Fortuna and I agree it should be a future consideration.

Love the Forks of Salmon, and Sawyers Bar... The road from Cecilville to Callahan was pretty amazing after that also... Now you have me wanting to take a trip up to Weaverville again...

First one I went to was in San Francisco in 2010. It’s where I first met Dan, Martin, Benjamin and a few others.
