Oregon Coast

I made it all the way down the Oregon coast today--all the way to California in the Redwood Parks. I had a campsite, I didn't, and then I did. I pulled into the last site (this is a recurring theme). There were no envelopes to pay, so I walk to the entrance which was probably about a mile--no envelopes. I go back to the camp host. He says everything is reserved. I must be in someone's reserved spot. Does that mean I would have to leave? Of course I had already setup everything for the night. And there were supposedly no state parks in the area with vacancy. I thought I'd have to sleep in the car, which really sucks. (I might have to do that tomorrow (my last day) since I only $17.41.) I start packing everything up when I see the boss go by. I had to verify that the site was really reserved. Of course the host wife said it wasn't reserved so it was fine for me to camp there. As usual, the wife is always right. Good for me this time! Now I just get to "worry" about my lack of cash. I think I burned about $600 in a little over 2 months. I have no idea how much is on the credit card.

I made much better mileage today. I had to or I'd never make it out of Oregon. US 101 wasn't as nice today. There were large sections that didn't hug the coast. All that changed around Port Orford. I really enjoyed the curvy road and seaside rocks. The trip from there to California was a lot of fun.

As soon as I made it into California, the fog/clouds were really thick. I saw the sun set below clouds, but not the horizon. It was kinda neat to keep going up and down through the cloud layer.

I've got over 300 miles left. But I'm definitely nearing the end. Very nice to finally be in California. It sure doesn't feel like home, but I haven't had one for a long time, so who knows.

I'm tired from not walking enough, so I'm going to spend more time hiking tomorrow and less driving. Unless I have to make it to Mt View due to lack of dough.

The night sky is clear and awesome as usual. I can see the Milky Way which is still a treat for me. I never saw it in Maryland.
