I enjoyed reading your RR very much. I've been on these roads many times and love hearing what others think. The Lost Coast is very special, the remoteness and the fog and the succulents that grow in that climate make me think I'm riding into Jurassic park. You must have ridden by that guy that has a ranch down on the ocean, unbelievable piece of real estate, no need to travel anywhere.
Adventure begins when your plan falls apart.
