Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

Mon, Apr 17, 2017

Ft Bragg is about 7 mi north of us so Carol and I drove over for lunch.

As we approached the town, we noticed this CalTrans sign:

_8012651

Uh oh.  We had planned to drive up the coast as our next stop is a campground in Eureka, CA.  But a March 10 rock slide shut down some of the lanes of Hwy 101 just after the merger with Hwy 1.  And now all lanes are closed and the only way is a huge detour back to Hwy 5.  A 400 mile detour.

Update on Mon:  CalTrans posted today that Hwy 101 should be open on Wed.  Fingers crossed.

Update on Tue:  Sorry, says CalTrans, Hwy 101 isn’t opening after all.  It looks like we’re headed back to Hwy 5.
