We just returned from our 12 day trip from So Cal to the Redwoods in Nor Cal and then on to Gold Beach, OR.
We sure did enjoy the cool weather while away. We encountered just a few other AS's on the road but we did stick to the secondary highways like 101.
For anyone visiting these areas I highly reccommend the Ancient Redwood RV park in Redcrest. Many pull through sites that are nice and in a park like setting, we didn't even have to level the AS. While we we're there another AS pulled in. Steve and Deanna from Riverside with their 2013 International which we found out had purchased their trailer from the same place and person we did at Southwest Coaches in Corona, CA.
At Gold Beach we stayed at a place called Ireland's RV which is part of a large hotel complex. The location is wonderful, right on the beach with a mini lighthouse you can climb to see sweeping views of the beach. The owner's have let the place slip a bit but it has full hook ups but the bathrooms and laundry facilities are crummy so use the bathroom in you're AS for showers.
While in Gold Beach I highly recommend taking the jet boat tour up the Rogue river. We saw over 10 American Bald Eagles, Ospries, bear, elk and seals, well worth the cost.
I included a photo of our Rough Coat Collie Jack in our images file who is our co-pilot on all our AS adventures.
