Day 1: Road trip

Sat 2008-02-16 23:00 (SF, photo)

Breakfast in a café, then back on the road. Lots of fun driving on the west coast, nice views, we even got some sunshine every now and then. Jake has the geekiest car ever: a laptop can get power and use the car’s sound system as speakers; that’s how we got the music. I built a playlist of my favorites, including some road trip songs. These factors together formed the perfectly awesome experience.

We arrived to San Francisco around 8 or 9 pm. Jake’s master plan was that “we don’t need reservations, we just walk into a hotel and get a room.” Well, that doesn’t quite work on a Saturday night in SF; we didn’t even find a parking spot, let alone a hotel room. After lots of phone calls, we ended up in a low-end place which I don’t even remember the name of. Fortunately, we were able to book the remaining two nights at the Westin.
