Story:
Three night trip down the Lost Coast in California.  The hiking through sand and rock took more of a toll on my knees and feet than I expected, but it was still an amazing adventure.  Read about it on my blog.
Tips:
- Take care of your feet.  If I had brought some moleskin and a pair of flip-flops I would have been much happier.

- Always consult a tide table.  We raced the incoming tide on our final morning and it can be a bit scary having large waves crashing in near you with very little dry land left.

The guide on the site for this trail says 2 nights. Why did you choose 3 nights? Just to take it more leisurely, or is it really that difficult?
