HIGHWAY 101 - COURTESY AND SAFETY

TRUST ME...50 miles = 1.5 hours driving time. Please plan accordingly. Neah Bay to my house is 52 miles - My best time is 50 minutes - it will take you MUCH longer. If you have a CB in your vehicle. Tune it to channel 14 and talk to us.

When driving curvy roads ride closer to the center line. Centrifugal force will assist you in a smoother gentler turn. Using the top of the curve allows you to enjoy the banking angle the engineers created. Turning low ( crossing the white line) turns even a gentle curve into a tight curve and creates an out of control sensation and situation and is illegal. Watch how motorcycles drive a curve and copy their methods. Brake before the curve not in the curve for more control.

If you see one deer...be aware.. there is a 99.9% probability that more are close by...and they are the ones who dart out and cause damage.

We appreciate visitors to our part of the world. BUT...We do not enjoy how most visitors drive. Highway 101, with few exceptions, is a two lane twisty curvy scenic road... Our old people can drive the road at 65 in sleeting rain, our log trucks can do it at 70 in a blizzard, most visitors can't drive the road at 30 - during the summer. The law says 5 cars behind you - pull off or get a ticket. Courtesy and Safety says...if you have cars behind you... pull over to shoulder (when safe) and let them by..or use NEXT pull off. If you are driving an RV or pickups with boats don't group up so anyone passing you must pass several vehicles at once. You may counter with "I am doing the speed limit"..and you are correct. But, if you won't pull over because of COURTESY - pull over for YOUR SAFETY..because having irritated drivers behind you..usually leads to unsafe passing...anger... danger.
