Petaluma KOA

This is what we awakened to in Eureka this morning. It was the wettest fog I have ever experienced. We were glad be gone. It sounds stupid, but I swear the misery in that area is palpable. I would like Congress to spend a month in Arcata or Eureka in the $33 a night hotels and mingle with the downtrodden. Perhaps they could stop the political sparring and do something about this economy.

Here we are just outside of Petaluma. We pulled off on the side of the road for lunch and a bio break. We're in wine country now.

Notes to self:
  • At the Petaluma KOA, sites 143, 144 and 163 are the good sites and have 50 amp. Just these three. 163 is close to the water filtration system, but so far it's not too noisy.
  • 101 from Eureka to Petaluma is a pleasant drive. There are some state parks, up down (a couple of 6% grades), and a lot of 2 lane road, but all in all not a bad way to go.
So, today Congress passed a new trade agreement with South Korea. Here is an article from NYT discussing the impact on the US textile industry. How is this possibly good?

We're here for 4 nights.

  1. My wife Alex was born in Arcata, and graduated from Eureka high School in 1966. That was better times for that area. She and a girl friend moved to SF when she graduated. I have only been there once, in 1989. It was foggy in Arcata:)
