California Dreamin'

Hey guys, I've been in Los Angeles for the past couple of weeks, kind of sad that I'm leaving back for Georgia tomorrow. Took a ton a pictures, but instead of posting them all here I'll give you an awesome link!

I know I'm late, but does anyone stay out here? Would've been cool to hang. I did plenty of sight-seeing though!

No one visits me in Santa Cruz. I'm within walkin' distance of a theme park on the beach which hosts an arcade with a huge classic arcade section! On Tuesday nights each ride costs 75 cents!

Yeah, it's about a 6 hour drive north. Well, it takes me about 6 hours. I like to stop at James Dean's memorial. Sue me.

I was gonna drive up to Santa Cruz to check out the premiere for Paranormal Activity until I saw that it was like 350 miles away. Also Sinister Pointe (halloween attraction) is working with Konami in creating a halloween maze based on Silent Hill. There was supposed to be a preview day last Friday opened to the media and the public, but when I called, they said that Konami canceled it for the public and changed it to media only. I was super bummed, but if you get a chance to check it out it'll be open all month until Halloween. Tell me how it turns out!

"Inland Empire" sounds like a name a trendy clothing company came up with.

Cool pics, Risky. I like the nightime cityscapes and the pic of the skulls.

If you take the 5 North, you'd have to take the 46W past Cholame (James Dean Memorial where he died) and then jump on the 101N. The 101N goes all the way to San Francisco, and Santa Cruz is about a 2.5 hour detour from that route.

Or you can just take the 1N directly to San Francisco. It's along the coastline and really the most beautiful highway California has to offer. You'll drive through Big Sur which is where I did alot of my studies and work and where I still go backpacking every year.

And Risky, you should also make the trip up here if you ever come back to California! I'll show you tons of stuff to take pictures of.
