    101 is open, just went through there an hour or two ago. Another flatlander that can't drive mountains and turns. Used to be a much more regular occurrence when we hauled out of places like Alder Point and Dinsmore
     
    LameMule Thanks this.

    20 is one of the most take-your-time roads I've ever been on. I got to pick up a co worker at that tow yard near Upper Lake and haul him and his crap back to Bellingham. Broke my heart to see that rolled over nearly new Shaker and aluminum curtainside sitting there.
    Worst trip I've been on...guy was a putz, no teaming for me!

    ,,,and Happy Camp, Hyampom, Covelo, Blocksburg, Hayfork, and a few others. We never thought too much about it 'cause most of us learned to drive on those roads.

    Oh man, those names bring back some memories. Dad took a job in Ruth and it came with a little house in Brown Camp. Southern Trinity High School in Mad River class of '72. I learned to drive on hwy 36 and looking back it was nuts!
     
    LameMule and REO6205 Thank this.

    When I first started driving in the late 60s all of those places I mentioned had a sawmill of one kind or another. Some of them were just ranchers with a homemade mill cutting rough cants for resaw but you could count on them paying their bills.
    If you learned to drive on 36 and survived you did pretty good.
    I learned on 299 and 96. A load a day out of Hoopa to somewhere in the Valley, usually a little resaw mill that John Geisbrecht had in Corning. It took all day to make a trip.
    We hauled a lot out of Covelo too. Most of it went to the rail-head at Willits.

    I still feel at home in that area. My favorite run lately was loading cedar around Bellingham, dropping in Ukiah, and reload at Windsor Mill in Willits for Tacoma. Windsor was one of very few places that had a roof over the loading area.
