Our trip from Bodega Bay to Ukiah was only 85 miles and pretty easy except for the first 30 or so through the hills to get back to US 101 from the coast. We are staying at the Redwood Empire Fairgrounds RV Park. We have a 50 amp full hookup site with great Verizon and an easy shot to the satellite. To get 50 amps we had to stay in one of the narrow pull-through site where most travelers stay. There are some 30 amp back-ins around the perimeter that smaller units use.
Friday, we finished off the PCH for us by driving over to the coast and starting at Fort Bragg, took the PCH south down to Point Arenas where we had left off from Bodega Bay. There is a little bit of the PCH north of Fort Bragg but we will omit that portion this trip. It was beautiful as usual and we enjoyed the drive until we started back over the mountains to get back to Ukiah. That is a 42 mile road which is the worst we have been on this trip. It was very twisty-turny as we expected but also very rough and bumpy causing Doris to not weather it very well. We averaged about 25 MPH over that stretch and thought it would never end!
We didn't do much else while here except relax and enjoy the cool weather, watch a lot of College World Series, watch a few movies and get caught up on our shopping as well as getting my ears lowered. Most importantly, Doris was able to get the x-rays the doctor had ordered since we were unable to go to Gainesville for her normal appointment. We were able to get the disk and radiology report and sent them back to her doctor at Shands at UF Hospital. It appears all is well and she is healing as she should.
Tomorrow we head for the redwoods with our first stop in Redcrest, CA where we will stay a week.
