I hear Fortuna's nice.  Bigsmile

Actually, there's camping and hotels within walking distance of a brewery.

You have a short memory.  2010 was pretty juicy.  I remember Opus hating us pretty good coming into Crescent City after a constant soaking all the way from Bandon OR and snow at the Oregon / California line on 199.  I don't have any pictures because my camera isn't waterproof.

Here's a couple from another washout.  Rain from Seattle to Fortuna and all the way home.


Look, it's only raining in Fortuna.

Pffft. 2010 was YEARS ago.

I mean, of course it will rain because we'll be PNWers on vacation, but can't we really expect that no matter where we go?

Hell, it snows on 36 between Red Bluff and Fortuna. At least in 2010 it did.

I'm under a self-induced muzzle when it comes to committing about participating in the 2015 WCRM, so I'll just say that it sounds like a lovely event, in a lovely place, with the potential of many beautiful motorcycles in attendance.  :popcorn:  Bigsmile

If we want to do Fortuna this year, we'll have to choose another weekend. Two events - one cycling and another group - have booked all the lodging I was researching in Fortuna.

Quincy's really nice. Only downside is that the CHP tends to run a LOT of speed traps on CA-70 around that area in the summertime.

But the road options up there are almost endless, and Lassen is within easy reach. And 89 through the Lassen area is something else.  Inlove Inlove Inlove

Not sure if anyone else is in my boat, but I'm staying out of the discussion until we have a date. "Where" won't be a big issue. "When" matters a lot.

Unfortunately, due to other people booking their events, the where and when are inextricably linked.

I'm supporting the weekend before Memorial Day as the when and Quincy as the where.

Enforcement on CA-70 cant be any worse than enforcement on CA-36 and US-101.

For the first time since I've been here (2008), the date in 2015 isn't an issue for me, but having been in that boat for the past 7 years, I definitely empathize.  Sad

As for enforcement on 70 vs. 36 and 101, it could be because I find myself in that area more often. Just seems like I see it every single time I'm in the area, without fail. It's not something pokey ol' me has to worry about, but I know most people ride a little MUCH faster than I do. Bigsmile

I couldn't see any camping options in Quincy, but the motel looks good. What're the beer options?

I'm all for sticking with the regular weekend. If we continue to have two per year, it's reasonable that people will be able to make at least one.

Buck's Lake is in the general area, about 19 miles out. Plenty of camping there, and a fun road to get to Quincy proper, but probably about a 30 minute ride.

I don't drink much at all, so I had to look up pubs/taverns. I found two, but hopefully someone more familiar with such things will have a better idea...
