I've eaten there on a trip last fall. Trust me, Ann could give two shits less if you eat there or not. She's a character!

Frank, the Oceanfront Inn has a great restaurant. It's open thursday thru sunday. Guess you guys were there on the other nights. I'll try your spot next time, hope I pass inspection.

If you're there again, try the Fish and Chips at the market (down next to launch ramp)... pretty darn good (in season).
IMHO: Best food is at Deb's in Redway, i.e. the 'Majestic' Shopping Center.



Pelicans on the roof at the store.

I think it was Mark Twain who wrote that the most miserable winter he'd ever experienced was the summer he spent in San Francisco.

Tugboat Annie was a hoot. One of a kind. So glad we were worthy of her attention. There were some poor folks from Canada that had just arrived and were quite hungry. They waited outside for quite a while hoping to have dinner. When a table finally cleared Annie told them it was too late and they were done serving for the evening. Not in a nasty way, just matter-of-fact. Gotta love it.

While I can imagine it would / could be very cool to live in Shelter Cove it is equally imaginable that a person could become permanently depressed living there. It's amazing, make the short drive over the hill inland and the environment is completely different. Hot, sunny and dry. Meanwhile back in Shelter Cove you might not see 200 yards, cold, grey and wet.

Would not have missed this experience for anything, just so glad the weather gods favored us with a chance to see the ocean and the coast.

OK, Now I see your pics that Im on the PC.
Yea, John and I did eat lunch there in fact. It closed at 1630 though. We had to turn on the radar though to find our way back to the Inn.
They only place in the Cove to eat dinner was The Chart Room. We seriously thought it was cool, and recommend it. Just for total immersion into the Shelter Cove experience if anything.

The Chart Room

If you go to Shelter Cove you must eat at the Chart Room.
It's just such an experience that it should not be missed.

Garberville

Let's change the subject to Garberville.

Dooood! Garberville is like so totally rad. I mean like man it's in this really pretty part of the state and like the people there are ok cause they don't really hassle ya if you know what I mean. Like the people that own the stores and the shops there are kinda tolerant of the weed culture, so while they don't go out of there way to make ya feel welcome thay don't really harass you either ya know. Like so long as you pay them and don't do anything totally stupid they will just kinda leave ya alone.

And the cops are ok too. They kinda look the other way most of the time unless somebody is making a scene, then they got no choice but to step in and make all official and 5hit. But as long as you are minding your own business they will pretty much like leave ya alone.

But like dude every once in a while some A hole spolis it for everybody by making like a scene ya know. Maybe he had some bad weed or something and he starts like standin in the middle of the street just screamin obsecneties and threatining people. Most of the times the fuzz will just corral the dude and take him away. But sometimes they dont get there like quick enough ya know and the crasy dude will be like fightin with somebody or will like take your back pack or somethin then the cops will like make a scene and round every body up and move them out and its just like this big hassle ya know because of one A hole.


That's the best I can do to describe Garberville. Another place ya just gotta experience if you are in the area. Certainly different from anything in the metro NYC or Philly area where we are. Maybe some parts of Vermont are kinda the same. ;-)

We saw the dude in the middle of the street screaming during our brief visit. We had a brief chat with the police when we were there. Told them what we were doing. They were extremely friendly and nice, as almost all police have been on our trips. But I had the impression the police in Garberville were happy to have an intelligent conversation with well spoken, clean, sober people. ;-)

Rough comparison, if you will

We covered a lot of the Forever West Route last Sept. and are trying to plan a 2014 ride.
I'm not sure we'd want to pay for flights and bike shipping, but I think we want to ride further west.
This ride looks possibly, more challenging as far as technical areas, and just as scenic, if not more so.
We had five guys that just went together very well. The camping nights were all pretty memorable, as we're the nights in some of the lodges. Could you guys have camped more often if you wanted to? I'm assuming yes.. Or maybe gone for a more remote lodge or two?
Also, we had very little traffic of any kind, seems a bit more traveled where you were this time.
I'm not looking for a "which is better" answer, but what did you prefer with this ride vs FW? And what did you miss?
This was another great RR, by the way.. Thank you all for taking the time to post it.

This was a good trip but honestly it paled in comparison to FW.
Ill go Into to why when I'm home on a PC later.
