Isn't it funny one can go forever and not have anything new or exciting to blog about and here I have two in one day!!! DS and I just returned from a road trip and we both got a dose of CA traffic! We drove north from Ukiah to Willits and then west from Willits to Fort Bragg and then up CA Hwy 1 to Leggett & CA 101 then back down to Ukiah. A total trip of about 200 miles! However 101 North of Santa Rosa is sporadic divided highway, and the 20 from Willits to Fort Bragg and the 1 into Leggett are all 2 laners if you want to call them that! I, the one from S. Cal, didn't realize that the northern mountains of this state are straight up and striaght down! The round trip from Willits was just that all 2 lane, and all twisty curvey mountain roads. Now if I had been driving........................ Thank you Ben for driving! Upon arriving back in Willits there was a typical California traffice jam! 2 miles out from the first stop light in Willits the cars were backed up and slowly inching forward. Willits have 5 stop lights!!!!! geesh - sigh Tomorrow is Ben's interview and then we hit the return road. Such a quick trip. Oh yes, we did stop at a winery, and of all the thousands of wineries in the Napa/Sonoma valley we stopped at the Cohn Winery, I think, thta was formerly owned by the Dobby Brothers! Now how weird is that? sigh bought two bottles of wine for DD#1 and none for me.
