New Plan

July 17, 2006

So, for various reasons, it seems unlikely that I will post to this as often as would make it worthwhile. There’s not much time left, we usually don’t have the internet to ourselves, I’m usually not using my computer, so it’s hard to get images and video on here, I have no clue what I’m doing and it takes time to learn, we don’t have any down time, etc… Thus the new plan is to take notes along the way and then post the stories one at a time once I get home. So to everyone out there not reading this, it will be updated once I settle down.


Another Sunny Day in CalifornIA

July 14, 2006

Yesterday we drove from San Francisco to LA along highway 1. It was gorgeous and windy. I’m not sure why I enjoy driving in long roadtrips so much. For the most part, I think it’s the ideal situation to let your mind wander. As a procrastinator, I love taking time to avoid serious matters and spending it on the unimportant. When you’re on a long drive, that’s the best thing you can do. Anyway, we made it to the city of angels last night and crashed at our friend Lei’s place in LA. Here’s the view to which we awoke.

First Post

On day 10 or 11 of our roadtrip, I finally start a blog. There are some great stories that were missed and will probably be told later. I think the best strategy now is to start with the present. Last night, we got into Griffin’s mom’s house in Napa valley. What I awoke to this morning was just unfair.

She’s got a beautiful house, and I was sitting at the dining table starting to eat breakfast. I was looking out into the garden through the half-open sliding door. Birds were chirping, I could smell flowers, and I could see hills in the distance. It was quintessential Napa Valley, at least what I imagine that would be. As I said, it is just unfair that such a place exists.

As to the future of this blog, we’ll see where it goes. Right now, I can’t make pictures work, but they will soon.
