LA to YREKA: ISO good stops btwn LA and Gustine....

So the giant road trip to Seattle starts this Saturday. This time, we are two cars, three gr'ups and three pups. The plan is to do the drive in two days with an overnight in Yreka because we like the name........

From past posts, I gather that we need to stop at Gustine to eat barbque and buy lots of sausage for the fourth of July. Mapquest directions are already printed, tummies already rumbling.

And we are planning to go to Willows for a sandwich, snack or at least coffee before making the final trek to Yreka. In Yrkea we are planning on breakfast at the Black Bear Diner but open to thoughts on dinner.....

The big question is stops post-LA but pre-Gustine. Mapquest says that from LA to Gustine is a four plus hour trek. With much distance and pups, seems like we need at least a coffee break in there. I have a handy-dandy map from InNOut listing all their stores but alternatives suggestions would be appreciated. I seem to recall stopping at something called Apricot pit or some such thing the last time we did this trip way back in '03.

Please don't suggest to take the 15 instead of the 5--it may just be a couple more hours but with kids in the car and an annoying short span of time in Seattle, we just can't do a big detour. Heck, I'm even thinking of driving straight through on the way back..............

thank you!
