Though I've never been, I love looking at trip reports of the Lost Coast, especially those sans bluebird days. From the comfort of a laptop, it looks quite adventurous. Not sure if you felt that way every minute out there.
Sorry if I missed this while reading: I count two Tarptents and one Hilleberg, for four people. Did two of you double up or did someone sleep under that tarp? Wondering, if so, how that worked out in the conditions!
