Along our route Matt, Vader and I visited Willow Creek, California, home of Bigfoot. We stopped to take pictures with the famous Bigfoot statue and meet some locals. We then moved on riding underneath towering Redwoods and following the rugged and foggy US-101, where Vader stopped and walked along the beach and left his mark in the sands of the California Coast, he seems quite lonely. Tomorrow will bring a shorter, but more packed ride as we continue along US-101 into Oregon and continue on to Portland, which will bring us to our next few stops, and the Shanghai Tunnels. Here's a few pictures of our first leg of the journey to tide you over until our trip continues tomorrow...

after passing through AFRICA! - man it was hot out there - we finaly made it back up into the mountains past Redding Ca where we stopped in at an awesome BBQ joint in Weaverville. They had an area set up in the shade with misters and a big screen tv just for bikers, it was a great rest stop.
