    Leaving Garberville this morning and riding down the coast to Big Sur. Not sure how far I'll make it today, given the fog and rain.
    I might be calling on those on the Tent Space list; I've been on the road for a week and could use a little time to get more organized.

    That's one of my favorite roads. I have seen patchy fog, but never ridden it in a storm; should be fun!

    Keep an eye far ahead out there. It has been a couple of years since Highway 1 washed into the sea, and we are probably due. This isn't a huge storm, but you never know. The last time it happened, a CHP officer and his patrol car were washed away while he was stopping traffic at the edge of the slide.

    Computer died recently Dave and I'm trying my phone on Tapatalk.
    Made it to SF then got curious about Napa then Lake Tahoe then caught in a snowstorm on Donner Pass and now I'm in Ely, NV where it's not raining but is snowing.

    don't drive too fast or you'll be in that storm all the way home.
