    So it looks like this actually going to happen...

    Me and and Onyx and my boyfriend (and maybe my sister) are going to be driving down the coast to San Francisco and back in April! Probably from the 15th - 25th in total.

    I think we'll be stopping in Portland for one night, Sean might play some music, and we'll camp another night somewhere in Oregon.

    We could potentially meet up with Chazzers in Oregon or California :)

    Pretty excited, I haven't taken a trip in AGES. Onyx is going to baffled, my little country bumpkin out in big cities.

    Sad you aren't heading my way but have a ton of fun!!!

    Failing that, tell me exciting things to do on your trip!

    That is AWESOME!!! I'd love to meet you and Onyx (and everyone else) when you're in Portland :D

    Also, you will probably have to take me back to Canada with you because I still totally plan on moving in with you LOL

    That would be fun! Unfortunately it has to be in this timeframe, both me and the bf have jobs starting at the end of april. So now or never!

    I'll definitely let you know the highlights! Just being in San Francisco is always my favourite, I have the best uncle in the world who lives there and he always shows us an amaaazing time!

    Yeah! Sweet! I'd love to meet up!!

    And sure thing, we'll have an extra seat ;)

    I'm a little too far south to meet up with you (only by 8 hours or so, lol) but I bet you'll have a blast!

    Sounds great! Let me know when you think you'll be here and I'll make time to back home (classes start for me next week but it's only about 2 hours away, so it's an easy trip back to Portland). And LOL!! Don't tempt me, I've been showing your photos to my sister telling her all about how I'll be moving to the Kootenay region after I graduate :p

    Awesome! I think we'll probably be in Portland the 15th/16th (arriving late on the 15th). And then possibly on the way back as well, not sure about that.

    Oh too bad! But yes I'm sure we will!

    You should totally stop in here (Olympia/Tumwater). It would be awesome to meet you! Plus we have the best Mexican food place in western WA.

    I'll see what we can do!

    Originally I thought we might make it down further South, but I think it's unrealistic, unfortunately! We want to have 5 days in San Francisco. Next time, maybe!

    I will, definitely! My uncle very well might be interested in tour guiding, he often ends up doing it. He also travels a lot so might not be around. Do you know when you're going to be in San Francisco?

    Fisherman's Wharf (so many sealions and breadbowls!) and the super windy road (cant remember what its called) were the most memorable for me I think... there's also Coit Tower, the Golden Gate Bridge, Haight St (alternative/hippie district), Alcatraz (defunct island prison).
