The second annual Hansen’s Central Valley

Corvettes President’s Mystery Run is now in the

record book. Thirteen cars including twenty-six

members shoved off to points unknown on

Monday September 29 and returned home Friday

afternoon October 3. Those taking part included

Dale and Sue Comer, Charlie and Kim Fosnaugh,

Pat and Patricia Garrahan, Glenn and Lorraine

Henderson, Mike and Lynne Henenfent, Mike and

Mary Lebda, Herb and Freida Null, Fred and Terri

Parks, Gary and Jan Pflepsen, Steve and Jill

Rosen, Skip and Leigh Ann Severance, Del and

Sue Walker and Craig and Pam Hansen.

On the first day we headed up the peninsula to

the Presidio in San Francisco for a guided tour of

the Disney Family Museum. Following lunch it

was over the Golden Gate to the Benbow Inn,

located just south of Garberville. The Benbow is

a historic lodge built in 1926. That evening Freida

Null began serving up unlimited margaritas as we

sat from a deck overlooking the Eel River.

The following day we took a beautiful drive on

the old 101 highway now known as the Avenue of

the Giants. This scenic two-lane route takes you

up close and personal with the giant Redwood

trees. We took the trail at the Founders Grove

and walked amongst trees one and a half times

the height of the Del Webb building. Another

stunning drive was through the Rockefeller Grove

where day turns into night as you drive under the

dense forest of 2,000 year old, 370 feet tall trees.

After a quick drive through Rio Dell on the State

Route 183, the shortest highway in California, we

made our way to Ferndale for lunch at the

Victorian Inn and some shopping. Later that day

we returned to the Benbow Inn.

On day three we headed south to Leggett where

all the cars drove through the Chandelier Tree to

set the stage for our upcoming 2015 calendar.

Then it was time to hit Highway 1 and head out

to the sweeping Pacific Ocean. We stopped in

Mendocino for lunch and more shopping before

our next stay at the Little River Inn and enjoyed

our group dinner overlooking the ocean.

Day four saw us travel down Highway 1 with a

group photo stop at the Point Arena Lighthouse,

lunch at the “Tides Inn” in Bodega Bay, a jaunt

up to Bodega to see the old schoolhouse used in

the movie “The Birds,” and then down to

Tomales Bay for our final night at Point Reyes

Seashore Lodge in Olema. With the margarita

supply exhausted and not wanting to tire out

Freida, we enjoyed a quiet evening in the

garden while some played games and others

watched football.

Our last day saw us continue on Highway 1

through Stinson Beach and over to the Golden

Gate Bridge where we ended up at 11am in

Santa Clara for a private tour of the new San

Francisco 49ers home, Levi’s Stadium. It was a

great tour as we visited the upscale lounge,

press box, one of the suites, the visitors’ locker

room, the 49er Goldrush cheerleaders locker

room, then down on the field and finally into

the Hall of Fame Museum.

After an action packed week, we headed for

home and arrived around 6pm on Friday

October 3. Pam and I want to give special

thanks to Dale and Sue Comer for helping us put

this run on. As mentioned a big thank you to

Freida Null and we want to thank all those who

went with us. At our next meeting on October

21, we will fill in some of the other details of our

adventure. Also don’t forget this month is the

final month for nominating your 2015 CVC

Board members.
