    True but I've gone down that road here before. I'm off beef and our immediate futures are painted with seafood.

    No shortage of Asian food in SF. Little Saigon area is good. And of course Chinese everywhere.

    Fish for sure at your end destination. Some if the best in the world imo.

    Of that there is no doubt. Gets better the further north you get.

    Eureka, California now, or rather camping just N of it after a glorious drive through the "Ave of the Giants" (Aka: Redwoods) and an icy cold dip in Eel river. Prolly crossing into Oregon manyana. Jeep is badass, can sack out almost anywhere. Life's good. Thanks for the comments.

    PS: Saw a bobcat (or lynx) this AM on my run. Grey colour. Looked to be a fair-sized adult. Shy little bugger. Still dark enough to get the shining eye effect from the flashlight.

    PSS: 2 monster elk chilling out watching their does feed. Those pix are coming.

    You don't want to be anywhere near the rear end of a moose.

    On a side note, had been waking up with 100% anxiety for 8 months.
    70% in Florida, 50% after health retreat in Ecuador, maybe 40% since traveling west coast.
    Last night I went to a legal marijuana dispensary and took 3 small puffs then woke up with only 5%.

    Beautiful area. I cycled the US west coast years ago. Wish I had taken a camera.

    Looking forward to the thread!

    Thanks for asking. Partially. Compound was great, coworkers fine, students,...tiring but dealable. The boss,...made me #1 go-to without equal compensation, so that wore thin. The last 3 months (closing shop) got unbearable while all coworkers coasted out with ease. Bossy milked me for every last drop to the bitter end.

    I rented a sail boat from a marina in San Diego. Had a great time up and down the bay. Sailed alongside an aircraft carrier's buoys/barrier and received a verbal warning from somebody aboard , over the tannoy, to stay away. Which we did with a wave. All went well until we came back. The outboard motor wouldn't start and with the wind falling could't make it back to the pier. Lots of suggestions from the crowd on the hill overlooking. We phoned the pier and they sent out a man in a boat, who towed us in. The hill applauded and my friend and I bowed in appreciation.

    I'm sure the end of contract bonus was wisely spent.
