Scenic two-lane byways can lead to white knuckles; reflections of California by RVer Jimmy Smith

We've traveled on 820 'scenic byway' miles the past few days ...  in Jimmy's words, we have "trundled through ancient Redwoods ...  pastoral wine-producing country ... and climbed Hwy. 49 through the California Sierra Nevada foothills that sparked a rich history based on the quest for gold."

It took us about eight hours traveling time. We made it to the Lake Sonoma Corps of Engineers Liberty Glen Campground after dark.  Somet

Meandered the Napa Valley skirting Bay Area traffic
After a long, long 8-hour drive yesterday down a wet, slow and winding Hwy 101 through Redwood Country, this day we decided to meander through Napa Valley along CA 128/29 in iconic Wine Country. And, as a bonus, we completely avoided any Bay Area traffic. An ease
