Greetings from San Francisco  
Hello, all. So much has happened on my travels, but there has been little opportunity to update or write it all up. I just wanted to touch base, say I am still out there, and dodging the forest fires in California, as well as the 55 degree weather! We went from 107 in Vegas to 55 in California in one day. Talk about a shock!

Today we're heading to 'Frisco and then to Redwood National Forest. After that Crater Lake in Oregon and then to a Yellowstone in Wyoming. Another two weeks to the trip and three weeks under our belt with 5900 miles.

I'll try to get a real entry in soon - whitewater rafting in the Rio Grande, hot air balooning in Sedona, AZ over the red rocks, horsebackriding in the mountains of Taos, NM, seeing seals in Santa Cruz are just a few of the experiences I've had.

I am sad to report that fanfiction has not been on my mind at all during this trip and I haven't written a single word of fic the last few weeks. I"m afraid I won't have anything to post for you all by the time I get back. Forgive me!

I'll pop in again soon though. Hope you're all doing well.

Welcome to our fair city. Sorry about the summer weather. It's Pride weekend, so be ready for anything!

Pride weekend? Wow, we didn't see anything! We were there Friday and we saw mostly business people and other tourists on the wharf downtown. We also passed a little alcove to swim in the bay and there seemed to be a few summer camp groups with little kids wading in the water and then more hardcore swimmer afficionados doing laps in the channel in full-body wetsuits.

I actually commented to the person I'm traveling with that SanFran reminded me a lot of NY. California has been the only state in a long time that has reminded me of New York State. Makes me a little homesick, heh.

I only wish the weather hadn't been so cold and dreary. THe fog/smoke was so thick we couldn't see the Golden Gate until we were actually passing over it!

The weather is always like that (minus the smoke) unless you come in Sept-Oct.

Next time to you come to town, we'll work on getting you into the neighborhoods where there's something to write home about! Pink Saturday in the Castro was quite the street party. Sorry you missed it.

Wow, you're having quite the adventure! Glad you're enjoying it all. I saw Susanna last Sunday, we talked about you a little while we pulled my closets apart ….

I miss NY a bit. When I was in Napa I actually picked up a present for Susanna and her doggie, so she's been on my mind! Hope you're doing well and the apartment is coming together peacefully.

The apartment is once more a sanctuary ...

gosh, horseback riding, hot air ballooning - all this amazing stuff you're doing - I'd be shocked if you were thinking about fanfic!!

*hugs* Thanks for the update! I'll continue to admire vicariously from my dreary little cubicle! :D

Hey, hun! I don't regularly have internet, but I wanted to know if you'd still like to meet up in Cleveland when I return to NY. Phone is an easier way to get in touch at this point. I'll send you a message with my number and maybe you can send yours too and we can take it from there?

Wowza. You're having an odyssey! (Um, without cyclopses and scary whirlpools and maybe I'll just can that little analogy.) You're having a Big Journey!

Stay safe, and happy travels.

Thanks, honey! Eee, it's so nice to hear from you girls. I kinda miss you all. *feels sheepish* I get to see only_passenger on the 4th of July though! Yay!

You are missed. New York just isn't the same without you to douche around with.
ClawofCat: nycspikeclawofcat on June 29th, 2008 05:05 pm (UTC)
Hey, you! Are you out of school yet? How's the summer going so far?

I should be back around July 10th and then you can have a douching partner. I miss you!

I'll try calling you on the road. My phone connection has been really spotty for a lot of the trip and I've been roaming. Also, if you've called me, I might not have gotten it. When I roam I can't reach my voicemail and it doesn't record my missed calls.

Thinking of you and the city. I miss it. No other place like NYC.

I'm alright...interning and job applying (have a couple of job interviews lined up this week). Seeing a lot of theater and movies, but everybody's busy. I left you a message, where I seriously tried to slow down my talking. See you soon!

You are really seeing the country, aren't you! That's so great, and I hope you continue to have good and safe travels.
ClawofCatclawofcat on June 29th, 2008 05:06 pm (UTC)
Thanks, doll. It has been a lot of fun. I hope to post some pictures when I get back. I think we've taken about 1500 already.

Hi!!! When are you coming back? I miss you! =)
