since thursday morning, I have done over 1000 miles. mainly on back roads. thursday did the road from Paterson over Mt Hamilton to San Jose. great views, turn after turn, but rough road. a fun part was meeting the Calif mille and seeing those cars out on the roads.
friday did hyw 1 up to Dillon Beach, again nice views, but rough due to all the rain damage and heavy traffic added in.
saturday dillon beach to Sea Ranch and Skaggs Springs rd to Healdsburg and on over Mt St Helena clear to Oroville. heard so much about Skaggs spg, but found it a beautiful tour through the country on rough torn up road. the last few miles were great, smooth lovely rolley coaster turns with a 40 mph speed limit and several rangers patrolling it.
Sunday afternoon left Oroville and headed to Red Bluff where i got on hwy 36 headed toward Fortuna. first hint of what was to come was a sign that said crooked road next 140 miles! YEEHAW!! take the best of the roads around lake Berryessa, Oro-Quincy, Skaggs spgs and any other road you want and it is all there. I highly recomend it if you can make the distance without needing gas. there are a few places along the road that have gas, but they cannot really be counted on. most fun I've had on any road so far.
