  1. Number of times your passenger felt like vomiting due to motion sickness:77,253.Number of times you thought you were going to go off the edge because it was midnight with fog and those damn kamakaze rabbits kept throwing themselves at the car:27Making it home safely: priceless

  2. I whooped it up one 4th of July on Mad Dog 20-20 at the Mattole Grange until 3am…and then teetered over to my campsite at A.W. Way campground next door. After the twirlies came and went and I got about four hours of sleep, it was time to drive back to Eureka. Damn you Petrolia Road! Upchucked three times between the store and Malfunction Junction. I should have taken Upper Bear River Road into Rio Dell…it would have been smoother. I guess you pay for your sins.

  3. And those kinds of memories are priceless as well.I don’t know about taking Bear River Ridge Rd. to Rio Dell, though. It might have been a less-curvy ride, but as Keri mentioned, you would have had to deal with those crazy Jihad bunnies.
