I-5 No way. Is 101 North of San Francisco to Oregon border a houndish wasteland?
We are tired of I-5 from N of SF to Portland. Gonna recreate a much older route by doing 101, heading for Seattle.
Any suggestions for lunch or dinner on this trip would be appreciated. Best is something the locals do, food you can't find elsewhere. Taco truck to places with stars are all fine with us.
Since we travel with a 65Lb. chocolate poodle, a place with outdoor tables/accepts dogs would be great. We won't leave him in the car if it's at all warm, and fast food places are a very last resort.
Will post on the Pacific NW Board for the OR/WA part of this trip. Any older conversation links would be appreciated, too.
You may be aware of this already, but check this site, and compare with the recs:http://www.dogfriendly.com/server/tra...
We had a great b'fast at the 2-9er Diner at the Petaluma airpost. Dined on the covered patio outside right next to a taxiway. Great fun!
Please give us a report on your doggie dining experiences. I'll bet lots of folks would benefit from the info. This topic is not often addressed on the dining boards.
Many thanks for the tips. We may have to revise the route based on what I've heard so far. Going a bit, to a lot, out of the way for an excellent meal can be a really memorable part of the trip.
We appreciate your guidance - will report to the extent this older brain can remember when we get back -
You're probably aware that it will be a long slow trip up to WA, especially if you travel prior to Labor Day weekend.
I'm out the door at the moment but if you search this board for Mendocino, Ft. Bragg, Eureka/Arcata/Trinidad you'll find a lot of great tips for N. CA.
On the PNW board there have been several posts on the OR coast recently.
Alternately for I-5, if you haven't checked posts on Mt. Shasta City or Dunsmuir there are some great places in that area. Likewise on the PNW board Ashland OR has gotten a lot of attention lately.
Have a great trip and be sure and report back.
