On Friday I bid farewell to my wonderful Portland hosts and hopped on Highway 101, California bound. It took the entire day to get to northern CA, but the drive along the coast was beautiful, even though it was foggy and overcast out.
I plan on taking this route all the way down to the San Diego area. Note to fellow travelers though, there are police everywhere. I did indeed get pulled over and I had to flash the young officer (my best smile of course). It worked and I got off with a verbal warning but CA is a big state so I've got to be extra cautious.
