Beer Event: Lagunitas Skunk Beer Train 2006; the Videos
I thought I'd finally start the story here of our ride on the 2006 Lagunitas Skunk Beer Train on September 9, 2006. I figured I must have teased it enough by this point...here...and here...and here. So, let's start out with the videos. They're not the best quality. But, they should certainly give you an idea of just what a wonderful annual event this. And, it supports a good cause too. I'll get into all that in "Part II; the Stories". Ok, for starters I thought that route 20 between Willits and Fort Bragg was crazy with ups and downs, twists and turns, switchbacks and hairpin turns. Then, we rode the Skunk Beer Train and, well, just take a look at the picture above for a section of the tracks we travelled along! And, now without further delay...the videos. (1:26) just after leaving Willits. A sharp eye will catch Tony Magee on guitar. (1:58) arriving at the KOA campground just outside of Willits, CA. A little Johnny Cash? (1:09) going deeper into the redwoods. (1:45) lunching and lounging for 2 hours in the middle of the redwood forest. (1:31) heading back to Willits after lunch.
