    016 Redwood National Park and Lost Coast Sidecar Road Trip

    016 Redwood National Park and Lost Coast Sidecar Road Trip

    A few years back we got a tiny taste of the world’s tallest trees in Northern California’s amazing Redwood National Park while driving the supremely scenic coastal route on our return trip from Oregon’s Crater Lake National Park.


    Truth be told, it’s been on our minds ever since.


    So we finally bumped this trip to the top of the list and did something we rarely do…


    Summer Road Trip!
     
    Up the awesome with a bucket list scenic drive along California's only coastal wilderness, on the iconic Lost Coast.


    Views include rolling golden hills, rad bridges, happy cows, and an awe-inspiring ride through Humbolt Redwoods State Park.


    Cool weather.


    No crowds.
     

    Great lodging & prices.


    Bonus tips include scoring the best burgers around and cases of coveted Pliny the Elder from Russian River Brewing Co.

    014: Pacific Coast Highway

    014: Pacific Coast Highway

    Soak up classic ocean views while you cruise along California's Pacific Coast Highway. Stop for a seaside bowl of clam chowder in Morro Bay, rest your weary head in Big Sur's magnificent Redwood Forests and taste award winning stinky cheeses in Point Reyes. 

     

    Heading north from SoCal we took two weeks to hit 20 unique spots around the coast including a daylong side trip through Paso Robles wine country to grab a case of Justin and a photo with the San Andreas Fault Line. 

     

    Figure in a couple extra hours of drive time especially since this demanding road comes with a twisting shoulder workout that begs for a leisurely pace and countless stops for Instagram opportunities at each incredible view point along the way.



     

    This is one spectacular road trip that you can definitely take over and over again without ever feeling repetitive. Just change up your lodging, dining and seasonal looky-loo stops for a whole new enchilada each time. 

     

    So keep this bucket list drive in your back pocket, a prescription for relaxation when you need to slow down and getaway from the hoopla that is Southern California.

    013: Highway 101, Santa Barbara and the Dark Side of Glamping

    013: Highway 101, Santa Barbara and the Dark Side of Glamping

    Remember those magazine covers on glamping? Those carefully staged photos are nothing more than the devil's trickery!

    We discovered that glamping can be for lil' kiddies too.  Including their lil' implements of doom, such as bullhorns, bikes and bright-ass headlamps.

    In this episode we bring you tons of ideas for a rad weekend roadtrip to Santa Barbara.

    Regardless of the renegade gangs of children you'll hear why we'd still highly recommend glamping...especially for us lazy types.

    012: 6 Tips for Traveling with your Dog

    012: 6 Tips for Traveling with your Dog

    Whether you fancy a well planned out itinerary or the spontaneous weekend getaway, trippin’ of any sort can be rather difficult when you have four legged responsibilities at home so we’ve put together a handy list of sh*t you need to pack and do to keep your sanity in check when making the big decision to take your fur-babies along for the ride.

     


    Schedule Trips in the Cooler Climates and Off Seasons
    Keep on track with your pets regularly scheduled meals and definitely Do NOT feed them junk food while on vacation
    Store dog food inside an air tight container with it’s original packaging intact
    Don’t forget the doggy gear! Your pooch needs a few things to be comfortable and not become a whinny backseat beast
    Check out the Dog Lover’s Companion book series for California and the Pacific Northwest
    Regular bathroom breaks and leg stretching required

     

    Blu road tripped with us for thousands of miles through California, Oregon, Washington, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and even Canada. She made us feel safe traveling around this crazy country of ours and we wouldn’t have done it any other way.

    Christmas 2014 was our last “staycation” with Blu. We took those last two weeks and spoiled her silly as she quickly declined losing her ability to walk but never losing her sparkle. She was the rambunctious light of our lives and went out in a spectacular flurry of hamburger parties and junk food heaven. We miss her everyday and hopefully one day we can bring ourselves to welcome another puppy into our lives but for now we may just cross over to the dark side with a little kitteh’ since the thought of trying to replace Blu seems outrageously impossible.
