eek, sorry, havent really touched this site since iv been away. california was great, went for a long road trip...drove down to san diego and met up wit 3 friends from home. two of them came driving with me.
i arrived down there from LA, thursday 26th july, bout 6pm. then we had dinner, and we hit the road for the grand canyon than night at 11:30. drove til 3, had a rest adn a coffee, drove til 8 and slept for a few hours. drove again, had lunch adn were at the grand canyon by 1 or 2. great fun! then we stayed on the arizon utah border, in a town called Page. middle of nowhere! had a good laugh, and a few beers. then next day, trekked into Utah, and then over to Las Vegas. soo frickn hot there. 104 degrees at night. didnt gamble, not really into it, but, ya know, good to see what its all about. following day, headed for death valley, where the temp climbed to 122. nuts! lips dried up as soon as i got out of the car.
then we went back to sandiego, where the car got towed, and i slept on the balcony! there was 10 irish sleeping in a one bedroom apartment! 4 in the bedroom, and 6in the living room...airbeds everywhere!really funny.
got the car back, took a trip to mexico. had to bribe a cop, cuz he said he was going to bring me to the station for running a red light (it was green). crazy shit. couldnt wait to get back on US soil.
now im in vancouver...heading to the island tomorrow... meant to be nice
