We’re off! It took a bit to wrap our heads around what to bring but we are finally packed and out the door.
Love, love, love the packing cubes from EBags! All my cycling clothes for 4 days in one large one and all my regular clothes in another with underwear and socks in a medium. Perfect!
It took us about 7 hours to get to our hotel in Redding. We ran into a couple of accidents. Waze routed us around the first one but couldn’t route us around the second.
On the way to Redding we stopped for lunch at Carl’s Junior in Soledad. Won’t do that again! The people working were great but the bathrooms were filthy and the french fries tasted of rancid grease.
Made it to our hotel and after checking in went to C. R. Gibbs. Had a glass of wine for me and a beer for Chris along with Cajun Chicken Caesars for dinner. The food is always good and so is the service.
