3/22/16 (Tuesday) in Atascadero, CA (Atascadero-Elks)
After dumping (no sewers at the sites here), we took off. Unfortunately, we were both not paying close attention and John took the US 101S ramp instead of the North ramp. Then as we made our way back and got onto a different entrance ramp, a car was honking at us on the right as it passed us. Hmm. I don’t think either of us saw him. John’s thought was that he shouldn’t be passing us on the right, in a one way ramp at that. I’m wondering if, when we made our left onto the ramp, he was making a right from the opposite side, thus we “ran into” each other. Thank heavens there was no contact, just a couple people thinking the other was in the wrong.
US 101N is still pretty much smooth with 4 lanes. Periodically we see signs: “End Freeway”, then soon after “Begin Freeway”. John noticed that those places have intersections (not ramps), but no lights thank heavens. Naturally we had to pick a windy day (N/NW at 20-30mph with gusts), but the scenery was still lovely green hills with trees and some agriculture. We arrived at 11:30, so not a bad trip. Just relaxed for the rest of the day, getting ready for our Hearst Castle tour tomorrow.
