You will get a bill in the mail ($ 6). Staying on Highway 580 for another 3.7 miles, we will go right into Highway 101 going north. We will be staying on the 101 freeway for 22 more miles (102 from last stop).  We will be taking exit 472B Lakeville following the curve and then turning right and heading to In & Out Burger and then go a short distance up the street to the Chevron Station.

Day 2: We will conduct our pre-ride briefing after breakfast and travel a couple blocks up Main Street to Highway 20 / Fort Bragg on the left.  We will travel west (35.1 miles) to Highway 1 (approximately 1 hour).  We will make a right onto Highway 1 and we will be making stops along the way to take photos and look at the scenery. We will stay on Highway 1 till we come to the drive thru tree park. We will drive through the Chandelier Tree and go to the gift shop. The fee for the park $10. (44 miles and 1 ½ hours to get there).  Again, we will take our time and enjoy. If you have not figured it out yet, Days 2 & 3 are slow paced so we can enjoy the area. We will be driven through the park and stopping along the way to take it all in and then head back to the hotel by way of Highway 271 which goes into Highway 101. (45 miles)

Day 3:  After breakfast and a morning briefing, we will get back on the 101 north highway for approximately 85 miles (1 1/2 hrs) and take highway 254 That will bring us to the Shrine Drive thru tree. Taking our time enjoying the scenery, the gift shop and picture taking. After getting  back onto 254 highway going through The Avenue Of The Giants. Again taking in all the scenery and stopping to take it all in. Highway 254 will go into 101 highway which will take us back to Willits and the Hotel. The main theme of this trip is to relax and take our time.

Note: We will decide where to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day. And of course our famous social hour. I would bring a swimsuit just in case the hot tub is open.

Day 4: Returning home will be in reverse order, stopping for gas and rest stops along the way.
