West Coast Trip #2

These pictures are of Mount Shasta in Northern California. It is quite a sight looming at over 14k ft. Its strange because you see something ahead in the distance, some clouds or something. Then slowly it comes into full view. The thing that's strange is that Mt. Shasta dominates the skyline for the next 2-3 hours of driving.

A little cone next to the road, only about 500ft. above the road's elevation.

And it finally leaves view- on to Oregon.

Oh Shit!

So news on the civil rights front...the US has decided to include RFID (radio frequency identification) tags in passports. I'm sure this is all for our 'protection' but somehow I feel like that must have gone over my head because all I can think about is how Big Brother this is. I'm scared, someone please console me. So I guess grab your new passport asap.

Dillion's Beach (Start of W. Coast Trip)

So Dillon's Beach is this massive park just north of Point Reyes Nat'l Park in CA. Its right on the coast in this massive bay. The strange thing about this place, is that all of the rednecks in California seem to congragate here w/ their RV's and tents, dogs, kids, and booze. I almost got drunk just driving into the place.

We saw a seal.

So we went here w/ the BurningMan crew, and had a good ol' time. Gabe (guy w/ the crazy red hat on the left) is a big hard alcohol fan, I should really say conasiour. He's the one who got me into taquilla. So there's this cousin of taquilla called mezcal. Basically the difference is that they smoke the agave before they distill it, so the booze is left with this strong rich smokey flavor (that knocks you on your ass). So, after the sunset, we got a good fire goin, and sat around tasting various types of mezcal!

Kissing Hank's Ass


You just gotta read this, it is toooo funny. I feel like it really puts just how crazy religion can be if you just put it into perspective.
