To Mich: Get your gas at the Fred Meyer in Brookings.  It is always well under California prices.  There is no sales tax in Oregon so enjoy that benefit.  If you go up to Bandon, take 42S to 42 to I-5 for the return home.  Should you backtrack to 199, watch out for the Safety Corridor south of Grants Pass.  The Oregon State Police watch it like a hawk.  There is an In-N-Out in Grants Pass and Medford.

Brookings to Port Orford is classic Oregon Coast viewing.  Hope you can drive it!

My wife reminded be that we are taking our little 4 kg dog. Any dog-friendly restaurants along US-101 or CASR-254 (or at least some places with outdoor patios). We can bring car snacks on the way up, but, absent such locations, we may need to take I-5 and go for drive thrus on the way home.

No idea about dogs.  I never owned one.  I never traveled with one.

There is plenty of outdoor access at restaurants.  Between Willits and Eureka I doubt anyone would even care if you had a dog with you inside.

No idea how accurate BringFido is. But this is their listing of dog-friendly restaurants in Eureka.

Enjoy the trip!  This is a wonderful drive.  Definitely second taking Avenue of the Giants over staying on 101, unless you are in a huge hurry.
