This is where mechanical excellence and one-thousand four-hundred horsepower pays off

Impulse struck me last week and Wednesday I booked a quick getaway on - a site that Seth told me about. I got an awesome deal; highly recommended.

California Route One

I left for sunny California (wasn’t that sunny though) very early Saturday and arrived back in rainy Boston (very rainy when we landed) very early Wednesday. I didn’t really have any specific plans for the trip so things just happened along the way which happened to work out very well. Spent Saturday night in San Francisco (notably at the Irish Bank and The Swig) where I met and chatted with a bunch of different people including one professional photographer (which was interesting as I like to think of photography as a new hobby for me). Sunday I left for Monterey and stayed there until Tuesday.

The most amazing part of the trip was probably driving on the very amazing 90 mile stretch of Route 1 from Carmel to San Simeon. Well, pictures speak more than a thousand words.

Spent most of Wednesday catching up on mail and on meetings / IRC; still got lots of mail and issues to attend to though.
