Day 4: Arcata and the Hippie North


I headed to Arcata in the early morning and finally booked into a real hotel. It is so nice to go to clean toilet and shower and a firm mattress and quiet. My back felt like a champ after that!!

Hung in Arcata for the day, kicked at the coffee shop and dropped by the by Humbolt State University, a really relaxed campus!

Describe my ride… Ford Ranger with a craftsman shell on the back, and a dorky looking luggage carrier with a broken down bike on the back. I hope I will streamline this and get more of the weight in the lower areas. It’s a bit top heavy now, and the wheels are a bit balled on the back, but it’s running well now.
