I had ten whole days away from work, and went on a road trip with a friend from my Boston days, lo those many (14!!) years ago.
We drove a lot, which was especially impressive for her, as she's a New Yorker who's never spent much time driving a stick shift. After a refresher session, she was on her way. We drove from the Bay Area up to Crater Lake, then to Portland, then hit the coast and drove south. Add in some great weather and lovely people, and the vacation was really amazing. I'll post a few more pictures later - gotta give me a way to get back into my blog!
