Let’s get ready to rum… No wait!

by craigc on Sep.09, 2009, under North America

So we start todays adventure at LAX. Oh I know it well, not that well, but good enough. I arrived at the terminal st 7 and with the whole self check-in, my ability to not pack suspicious things IN my bag, And to only wear cotton I managed to get through security and checked-in in 30 min. Yay. Well it was also 7 am. That helped a bit. I’m off to o’hare for my first part of the journey, but that doesn’t happen for 2 hours. Better to wait than be late!
This is annorth american part of the flight so it’s not Europe yet.

Travel tips! :
- bring munchies – I have to pay for food if I want to eat on the plane.

- don’t wear metal – it slows the security process. I wear only cotton it’s also nice to travel in.

- pack your carry for the X-Ray machine.
- Bring something to do for the wait!
- make sure your electonics can turn on! This is only an issue In Germany where they are really strict and search everything. No hiding things In your electronic or any cavities! They wand everyone! Haha

Till we meet again. Bon voyage!

Oregon for the 4th

by craigc on Jul.03, 2009, under Adventure, North America

We got to Oregon thursday night. Around 1 in the morning we got in and i had been entertained by an interesting fellow who could talk for 2 hours straight. I was entertained and found it interesting, my mom did not.

On friday we drove to the coast. We left late and hit fun oregonian traffic which is a 2 lane to a 1 lane road (see the first pic for something truely not interesting, haha im passing time) The gps system said 32 miles and 55 minutes to destination for a good 45 mins of the stalled driving. Ooo yay. Now things are moving along. Oh and 105.9 fm ‘The Brew’ rocks my sandals off!!

So the downside of Oregon is that apart from it being beautiful and undeveloped, transportation wise, is that there are no major roads to the coast. So every one is there. At the end of our drive in it took us 37 min to go 9.9 miles, and that was like 30 minutes for 8 miles and 7 minutes for 2 miles. Oh well.

Life really is a Highway, and I seem to be driving it all day long.

Friday ~ 240 miles.
There are ways to extract simple pleasures from the mundane and some times painful processes in life. Driving up to Goleta in search of a place is a bit tedious. But adventuring up to Goleta in search of a place is so much better. Okay I just changed a word but, with that change it also alters the perceptions of the whole trip. Today was the first part of a long and enjoyable trip. From my start in the sunny Malibu, I embarked up the coast.

The Pacific coast highway is so beautiful, apart from all those god damn stop lights in malibu down by Pt.Dume. After getting through that mess you cruise and It’s so nice. Hitting the freeway(101) and just enjoying myself, Santa Barbara and Goleta arrived pretty quickly.
