Hello again MC-ers...ya'll were such a great help w/ my Santa Cruz hotel accommodations, I thought I should tap you once again, but this time for something in the South Oregon/North California area. We're planning to drive down I-5 - we usually make it to Redding, Ca and stay at the Red Lion there, but we've been such creatures of habit the last 4-5yrs I thought maybe we'd expound our horizons and try staying someplace different. We don't have a stingent timetable so we might end up in southern Oregon but most likely somewhere in California between Yreka and Redding. Should we take a jag over to the coast do you think??? do a little coast driving? We haven't driven that coast highway since the late 80s, will we have enough time if we leave Seattle on the 23rd to be in Santa Cruz by the 25th going down the coast?? Or should we stick to the usual blazeway I-5?? Or maybe, is it reasonable to do a little of both? I wish I was more familiar with the Cali coast!
