      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Hey Addie, I can't hook you up with anyone, but spent five of my years there...just head north towards Trinidad and hit up Moonstone Beach. Beautiful, beautiful place with some great routes. You won't be able to miss the rock and there's always people scampering about. (My, oh my, I'm jealous).

Hey, Muddy Waters Coffee is the thumbs_up.gif

G Street I believe, cross the street from Kinkos.

There's also another killer coffee shop with the organic goods near the chain drug store on H Street ?( or whatever the main drag that runs the opp direction of G is).

 

Weekend farmers market on the square thumbs_up.gif

 

And Wilderberry's (sp?) market also thumbs_up.gif

 

Decent Thai restaurant down the road in Eureka.

The Somoa Cookhouse across the bay used to be a pretty good place to eat, especially if you are very hungry and want to eat alot. It is the former mess hall for the mill workers of Louisiana Pacific. No menu, just whatever they're serving. A nice little logging museum too.

The cook house used to be a lot better than it is now. They used to bring everything out at ounce. Now you have to chase someoe down to bring some more grub out.

Another place that is really good is the Lost Coast Brew Pub in Old Town Eureka. They make some of the best beer i have had. My two favorites are Down Town Brown and Great White. When I am down there I always stock up on a few cases of each. bigdrink.gifbigdrink.gifbigdrink.gifbigdrink.gif
