I love the west coast. I love road trips. So a west coast road trip after our annual Mequoda Napa event only made sense this year. I drove from Napa to Fort Bragg and then back down from Fort Bragg to San Francisco. I took the scenic route up/down route 1, and therefore, what should have taken about 6 hours round trip, turned into a full-on two day ordeal.
It was great. I had a convertible (a Saturn Sky) and I met lots of nice people. I unfortunately did not eat any good food. I have this thing with traveling where I tend to take more pictures than ingest food. My Yelp account is severely lacking.
Here’s the thing about roadtripping in Northern California – if the views are majestic, there is probably no cell phone service. So going my usual roadtrip 2.0 route with the trusty iPhone ultimately failed me.
Luckily, California has the best road signs on earth, and for two years in a row I’ve been able to make it to and from destinations, based on road signs alone.
So I’m going to embed my little road trip video here, even though it’s a full 26 or so minutes (be patient, I like trees), there’s some good stuff in there. Unfortunately, I also discovered that I curse like a sailor when I’m excited, and recording. So pardon my french.
Yes, I know my video editing skills are severely lacking. HELLO iMOVIE!
Don’t judge me.
