My Cabin fever was getting really intense, so when the weather forecast was for clear skies for last Saturday-Sunday (Feb 6-7), I loaded up the bike and headed north.The roads here were still damp and mossy under the trees, so I just rolled north on 101 to Garberville, then headed out to Shelter Cove.  Didn't stay too long as it looked like rain clouds might be rolling in.  Thinking the forecast might change I headed to Burlington Campground to get setup before dark.  I took Avenue of the Giants as soon as I could get on it and only saw two cars.  Damp or wet in the shade, dry in the sunny bits, so I just chilled out and enjoyed my surroundings.  It was so nice to just roll along in peace and quiet. I had the only reservation when I arrived.  That was one lonely FJ.  3 families rolled in while I was away at dinner, but the place was still empty.I had already decided not to cook, so I rolled up the Ave of the Giants to Fortuna and had dinner at the Eel River Brew Pub (highly recommended).  Sunday morning I rolled north again on the Avenue and then headed east on Hwy 36 to Bridgeville and then south on Alderpoint road.  While scenic, the road was a total mess - wet, dirty, at time covered in mud 2 inches thick that had washed down the hillsides.  Mentally very exhausting riding.Once back in Garberville I headed south again picking up hwy 271 when I could for a little extra fun.  Made it home in time for the Superbowl.  Cheersday 1 : https://goo.gl/maps/Nu5fhgUUwFQ2day 2:https://goo.gl/maps/Y6s8Wru3SRq
