Got back an hour ago. Left Clearlake around 3 PM and rode the next 1.5 hours in the rain. had my jacket but had forgotten my rain pants. Didn't get too wet.
I went up to Ukiah on Tuesday afternoon so I could chase garbage trucks in the morning on Wednesday.
Took I-5 to Williams and then 20 to 53 to Clearlake. Spent a couple hours riding around the city and checking garbage cans and recycling cans to see how contaminated the recycling cans were.
Then I took 29 and headed up to Upper Lake and back on 20 to 101 and south to Ukiah. Got there about 5:30 PM and checked in at the Holiday Inn Express.
After freshening up, I went out in search of food. Found a place called Ukiah Brewery. Though a nice cold beer would be just fine. I sat down and had the restaurant menu as well as the beer list handed to me. Took me a while to realise that the food was mostly for vegetarians, vegans and those who liked organic. I had already ordered a beer so I ventured and ordered a vegetarian burrito. Not what I would call home about.
Next morning bright and early I chased garbage trucks, looked at recycling cans, took pictures and made my way to the transfer station for additional observations and pictures. Then had my meeting with the City manager and discussed the city's recycling programs.
I rode around some more in the afternoon and made my way to a place called Walt's Cafe for dinner. The best porterhouse steak I have ever eaten. It was perfect. I had a local beer called Boon Tap. It was very good.
Hal: Ribeye was only $17.00
They also serve sushi, seafood and pasta.
Next morning I went to the transfer station again and took some more pictures while the workers were scavenging.
Then I decided to take 101 south to get to Clearlake. Once I got to Hopland, I took 175 west bound to connect to 29 again. This is a gem of a road. If you have not ridden this, it is a must do ride. Talk about twisties. Must have been designed by a rider. Elevation changes and the roadwas 'brand new' paved. I took it easy and realised I am still tentative around the corners after my last getoff. It's a good thing and has me now riding without pushing the envelope.
Anyway, I'm thinking of planning an overnight trip up to Ukiah so we can enjoy a good meal and ride 175.
