Next Meetup

Hidden waterfall & creek hike, historic Sawmill, & underground winery & more !
Usually we meet at the Wildflour Bread co. But time is an issue. So we will meet in the parking lot of the old Union hotel in downtown Occidental. It is at the corner of Bohemian Hwy & Coleman Valley Rd. Can't miss it. (3731 Main St. Occidental) NOTE: If you wish to stop at the Wildflour Bread co. first (140 Bohemian hwy in Freestone) ; Grab some amazing breads & meet us at the Union hotel in Occidental. It takes about 7 minutes to get there from Wildflour Bread co. Please read all info. * Always bring a jacket; good hiking shoes, backpack or fanny pack. An extra pair of shoes for after is also a good idea. * Always give me your em & phone # & meetup group name for carpooling help when contacting me. Email me directly for questions: * All my events are unique and planning, creating , & conducting them takes 40-45 hours a week. Over 40 different events a year. * Do not RSVP if not serious about attending. * Some events have pre-pay requirements. Please heed them. * You will most always have a super great time & meet fun people of all ages. I conduct no "Ho Hum" events ! Our first location takes us to a hidden ecological preserve . The waterfalls are very low now. But the creek trail is so cool to trek & climb it. A very unique area to explore. (Must have good hiking shoes) . From here we head to the historic Sturgeon saw mill. This place is a working 1890's saw mill. You will love the tour & all the demos how things worked using belts & only steam power. A very unique experience is waiting for you here. We will have our wine picnic lunch here in an outdoor cafe under the redwood trees. NOTE: This is the last time until next May that the sawmill will be operating.*** Onward from here to an Historic Brandy & sparkling winery for an underground tour & tastings. An interesting movie is also in the tour. Another unique experience to enjoy & remember. Our next to the last stop (If you have the energy) will be at the Russian river Sea cliffs. Where the Russian river meets the sea. Lots of wildlife to view here. Our last *option is a visit to the soon to be famous RUSSIAN HOUSE #1. A unique restaurant that sits over the Russian river near the river mouth. So relaxing & the views are fantastic ! The delicious food is home style Russian. Buffet style. Cash is best here . ***But you won't get a bill. They accept a love offering only. How great is that ?! Whew; all fun things must end temporarily. Just another crappy day in paradise !! Also included will be: water, juices, teas, lattes, protein & energy drinks, , gourmet fruit & nut packs, Zillions of trail bars, Wine Country Sodas(non alcoholic), other snacks, car pooling & shuttles, parking fees, wine tasting & tour & a super interesting & fun experience ! donation $30.
