Thinking about getting away from this heat and fire smoke tomorrow and head to the coast via Sherwood Rd. I'll do some scouting and take some pics for you all to check out if we go.

I'm sure you'll make up for it at Hollister. He got anxious and installed it himself last weekend. He said it went well. Flyinion came up and he installed his discos. We didn't go anywhere after cause the smoke was too nasty (wind changed direction last night and turned Lake Co into an ashtray!)

Cool. Be careful if you go some body died near that area yesterday over a pot farm.

Sherwood Rd scouting trip:

Nothing too exciting. The first 12 miles of Sherwood road is narrow, paved, and rough. After mile 12 comes 24 miles of forest service dirt road. The road starts off fairly smooth and progressively gets a bit rougher. Pics a bit rough, sorry.



Most of the trail is down hill. Elevation change from about 3000 feet down to sea level over the course of the 24 mile journey. Here's a couple views from the top before heading down. Hope you like trees!



Couple more trail pics from my crappy camera.




Total elapsed time from Willits to Fort Bragg 2hrs 20minutes averaging 15MPH.
Once we reached Fort Bragg, we rewarded ourselves with a quick break at the bluffs.


Followed that up with dinner at our favorite eatery. Nothing better than an ice cold beer on tap with the best pizza on the planet!

Sherwood Rd took a little longer than I expected, so that will put us in Fort Bragg around 12:30. Still thinking about where to break for lunch in FB. I would like to be done with lunch and rolling by no later than 1:30. Keep in mind it will take us 1/2hr to get to the Usal Rd trailhead, and 4hrs to get to Shelter Cove. We will stop at Usal beach for a break and maybe an opportunity to take the jeeps on the beach. Not sure on restrictions there. I'll check that out on my scouting run. There is a Round Table Pizza in FB that might work well. It'll all depend on how many we have. This isn't the "official list", but this is who's on board so far:

bobthetj03
Gene13
Flyinion
JeepTh1ng
JKTHOMPS
tacojeep
droze
mwashburn
titomars

That's a potencial of 18 jeeples if everyone brings a co-pilot, so that's why I was thinking Round Table a good option. Suggestions welcome.

So far the majority likes Sept 8-9 for the date.

My plan so far is to give till August 1st to set the date. Sept 8-9 is the majority right now, but someone has mentioned the 29-30. September/October is usually some of the best weather for the coast, but be prepared for the possibility of rain. It rained on us once while taking this trek towards the end of September but cleared up by the time we got to Usal Road. FYI. After doing the scouting run of Sherwood road, I have decided to change the meet up spot in Willits to the Safeway. There is a Safeway gas station and plenty of parking. It'll also be easier to leave from there.
Kinda funny story, when we first tried to take Sherwood road several years ago, we ran up on this sign where the road turns from pavement to dirt...


When we saw the sign, we reluctantly turned around and ended up not going further. Instead we went to Fort Bragg and tried taking Sherwood road the other direction to see if in fact this sign spoke the truth. The sign lied! It was clear all the way thru. I'm thinking this sign has been up for years and no one bothered to take it down, LOL! Needless to say, ignore the sign.
