    If this were me, and I had 2 days, I would definitely take US-101 and then overnight someplace in the Eureka or Crescent City area.

    Default Avenue of Giants and Mendicino.

    You would have time to do the detour off 101 to the Humboldt SP and the Avenue of Giants. A great place to sit and have lunch and consider just how insignificant we all are, in the larger scheme of things.. From the Humboldt Redwoods SP you can drive to Fortuna, via Mendicino, the most westerly point of continental US. The drive takes one through the dunes, where at times you get spectacular views of the beach with the Pacific Ocean rolling ashore. There is nothing there. It is a small stretch of beach completely untouched by development. A place to stop for a while, and take it all in.

    I ride a motorcycle, how about this.
    San Francisco to Boonville, go west (Mountain View Rd) to Hwy 1
    Hwy 1 up to Leggett, then 101 up through the Redwood Forest to Crescent City.
    Take hwy 199 up to Grants Pass,
    Catch the I 5 up to Eugene.
    1001 km (622 miles),
    Hwy 1 on the coast is a must see....

    If this were me, and I had 2 periods, I would definitely take US-101 and then instantly anywhere in the Eureka or Cres City position. and for journey bard journey is the best.
