Redway, Ca - Laytonville, Ca

By John Schaefer,

Arose and rolled down hill to Redway, had blueberry pancakes at Redway diner. Found numerous helpers at KMUD, include Dan with obnoxious dog, lots of chatty folks. KMUD interviewed Marcelo. M replaced broken tie rod end. I expoxyed broken fairing but badly, so it couldn't be installed without hampering steering. Left about 2pm arrived Laytonville after dark. Stayed in cabins behind restaurant, which unfortunately is now closed. Dinner at Mex drivein, watched Terminator starring Arnold.

The near impossible to find David Katz home in the mountains. Amazing of the grid home!
The photo doesn't do justice to the beautiful view.
Fog cold morning.

By early afternoon, batteries were full, the car was ready, the sun was shining.
