My explanation may be out of order but it definitely was Brookings, AKA Chetco River/Harbor. I really don't like Cresent City, too many flies around the seal/bird islands.
I wanted to make sure I had enough fuel
to get all the way to Neah Bay, if need be. I counted on the bars being closed along the Oregon/Washington coast, which most were to non commercial
