We're leaving today for our vacation west. Just to let you know that I'll be posting occassionally when I can get access to a computer but will mainly be following from sportrs center when I can, or the USA Today, or on-line PG.

Here's the plan-
Fly to Las Vegas today and stay with brother-in-law
Saturday drive with them to just north of LA at Ventura
go to Hearst Castle and on to Monterey NEXT DAY.
Then to San Francisco for three nights
Up the coast and the Redwoods to to Crescent City for the night.
Then it's inland to Bend Oregon for 3 days, more family, perported to be a beautiful area.
Then to Seattle for 8 days-- including a day at Mount Rainer and two days ferrying to Vitoria and returning.

In all, three weeks as we fly home from Seattle on August 10.

So- go Bucs and we'll be posting for sure by then but maybe sooner. I'm trusting you guys to get the winning going for me and keeping Russell and NH headed in the right direction. Yes I'm skipping out on that responsibility.

Enjoy Sub! You will be driving right through my neck of the woods on your way from Ventura to Hearst Castle. When you get to Santa Maria, hop off the 101 at the Stowell Road exit and grab some strawberries from the strawberry stand right there- you will not regret it. I could also recommend some wineries if you are interested in stopping at some tasting rooms.

Also, DO NOT miss checking out the elephant seal colony while at Hearst Castle- it is about 5 miles north of the entrance to the castle- they are amazing. Not sure how many seals are there this time of year, but if the males are on shore, they are something to see. And if I might recommend it- stay on highway 1 all the way to Monterrey from Hearts. Its probably faster to go back inland and take the 101, but the drive on the bluffs over the ocean and through Big Sur is pretty awesome.

Have fun Sub! My wife and I are going to Cancun for seven days tomorrow with some friends of ours. I'm looking forward to turning off my Blackberry and always having a drink in hand!
