California or Bust, Day 1

"California or Bust" Apparently there was a movie back in the 1920's about this, but anyways, cool sign.

To refresh everyone's memory my three friends from work, Megan, Monika, Cristina, and I are going on a road trip to california. The plan thus far is a visit to the redwoods, wine country, San Fran and maybe LA. Just a little break from the craziness of work.

So our journey began around 330pm. First stop was a gas station to replace the fuse in Megan's car. Thanks to the shell gas gusy who replaced it for free. Then we were on the road. Second stop, Best buy in Salem to get a car charger for Megan's navigator, so that we don't lost on our trip. Third stop, Eugene Red Robin at Valley River Center, you know for some grub and stuff. Girls gotta eat....Good memories of being back in Eugene and the shopping center, reminds me of high school. Finally, we made it to Bandon, OR at our hotel around 1030pm. We are not just hanging out watching sixteen candles before we head to sleep.

Next up on the schedule: Breakfast at a cute place in "old town" of Bandon, and walking around at the docks and checking out the cute shops of this quaint little town. Then, we are on the road again to Fort Bragg in wine country....Updates to come....Everyone should know that we are sound and safe :)

Tiff....have a great trip. If you go to Wine Country try to visit Sonoma in addition to Napa. It's less commercial. But, if you go to Napa, you should definitely stop at Peju and also go to the Domaine Carneros by Tattinger. It's a Sparkling Wine Vineyard. you can order some champagne and I think have dessert. It's really beautiful.

See you when you get back (P.S. feel better)
