Song of the Day: Going to California (Led Zeppelin)
Got an opportunity to fly out to San Francisco for a few days. This'll be a lot of firsts. Never been further west than New Orleans, no farther north than Louisville, KY--and that trip was just last year.
The only mountain I've seen is Lookout, right near the Georgia/Tennessee line. Furthest south? Key West.
Never been out of the South.
Got the cameras ready, batteries charging, and all that. Really looking forward to seeing Alcatraz, that big orange bridge, and whatever I can spot from 30,000 feet.
(Edit to add: I want to thank those awesome fellas in Congress for doing an end-run around the Sequester by getting the FAA to make things more convenient for traveling members of Congress by throwing money at them. In fixing things to their own benefit, they've indirectly made my trip easier. Hope that hurts.)
