Gasp! Lookie!! *points to cut*( Oh, the possibilities!Collapse )
We'd arrive on the 20th, and go see WSP the next day!! I love how all of this is coming together. The picture of the maps is the AVERAGE of where we want to/would go. Minus: Anywhere in Cali, Ruby Mountains, anywhere past New Mexico, Salmon River, Mt. Rushmore (because really, who HONESTLY wants to go there for a vacation if you had the choice? Just buy a freaking post card. sheesh.), and all the rest are open for grabs. But basically we'll be going to: Denver (flying out to there from Savannah), Grand Canyon, Zion, Yosesi-somebody, Jackson Hole, and elsewhere. We'll be gone for the minimum of two weeks, max (and more likely) 3 weeks. Just me and Dad. He said next year I can bring somebody along. :D
Well, I just figured I'd post this before I went to bed while it was still fresh on my mind.
Love to everybody!!
We could be seeing The String Cheese Incident and Bob Weir & Ratdog, and have either Keller Williams or Taj Mahal open for them, but that's too late in our time (July 2/3, we'd be long gone from Colorado by then) for us. Either them OR Ween/the Flaming Lips (but they're allll the way on July 29th. :( Oh well.)!!
Okay, I swear I'm done.
Feed back, anyone? Also if you live out there and you wanna meet up, just let me know!! I'd love to meet some of you and what-not. Or, if you've done this sort of trip in the area before: any tips/places to go? We're really really open to lots of things at this point, so DON'T be shy!! :) Any festivals of anysort or anything!!
X-Posted to various communities and partially to MySpace. :) You love me anyway.

I'm thinking about doing a cross country road trip from New Jersey to San Francisco during spring break (3/4-3/11). Any advice/stories/warnings will be welcome. I'm considering going through Chicago and then taking Route 66 all the way down to LA. Comments? Planning this out this weekend so I will edit it then and add details.

San Francisco to New York
( about meCollapse )
I'm currently in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm moving out to Brooklyn, New York. I'd like to be there before the 29th.
My luggage consists of a military duffle and a big blue backpack.
I have a valid California state DL, can drive a stick like a pro. Will split gas and driving.
Driving record and references available on request.
Did I mention that there's homemade bread and berry pie involved? Well there is. And it can all be yours...

My fiance lives in Buffalo New York and she's moving out here in the July/August timeframe.
My question though, is what is a reputable moving company that can move our stuff without breaking/stealing and in a good enough time frame?
Has anyone ever used services like UPS or FedEx to move their apartment stuff?
Is it even worth moving her stuff? Should we sell it?
Right now everything is in a storage unit and we're getting estimates in the 2 grand range. Uhaul isn't an option because she doesn't want to.
Thank you for any help you can give!

Driving across the U.S. in February
I'm moving from San Francisco to New York, and a friend and I will be driving a truck full of my stuff from here to there around the end of January/beginning of February. This is very exciting! *beam* I've wanted to do a cross-country drive for years, and this is my first time. I know that there are some risks to doing this and would like to minimize them, so I ask all of the seasoned travelers out there:
* What route would you choose, and why?
* How long should we expect it to take? How far should we expect to drive each day?
* What's the best way to avoid getting stuck in the snow somewhere?
* Where is there the lowest likelihood of the truck being broken into or stolen? What should I watch out for? (I'm shipping my most sentimental belongings and getting insurance and a truck with GPS and other anti-theft precautions, but of course it's best to avoid this sort of thing altogether.)
* What else should I know, beyond "Bring blankets and lots of music, and do this with someone you won't hate at the end of it"? *)

Idaho, and WA
I live in Seattle, Washington, WEST COAST BABY! My bf, though, recently visited his grandparents in Idaho on this lake. The pictures are pretty. Nothing beats the evergreen state though...
I'm bias. Oh, yeah... that. :)

The other night I caught part of the mini-series "The Hampton." Did anyone else see this program? It made me ill, it was a bunch of rich folks clamoring around telling each other how wonderful they are and how rich they are and how great Long Island is. My friends asked me in awe, "THAT is where you are from?" NO, I explained. The Hamptons are on the south east shore of Long Island. I'm from Ghetto Ass Nassau County. Hehe. I thought the show was obnoxious.

i went to california once when i graduated high school. it was fun. i never been to the west before. i've lived in the same town since i was born, and the same state even. as much as i liked the west, new england is my home. i don't think i could ever leave permanently- only because i see a california lifestyle as being all glam..etc and the beach isn't too far away.. i think life on the east is maybe more classy.. but i think if i moved to the west like california, i'd become a beach bum lazy person. the weather is so nice, and i'm used to snow and crappy weather. like snow in may, and warm weather in february. whether it's el nino or what, i don't think i could leave.

have any of you driven from one coast to another? what were your experiences? through my roadtrip, i decided that i cannot live in a state that is more that 400 miles from the ocean.
another observation. as i drove from atlanta to portland, the diversity progressively became thinner as i neared the center of the country. i myself do not want to live in a place that is mainly white. coastal cities are for the most part diverse, and that is what bleeds into the culture of the cities. east coast or west, the cultures of both sides are rich and wonderful, and that's what makes me gravitate there.
on another note, i'm going to san francisco for the first time, please recommend places to see!

hi, i'm from Buffalo, NY and i recently moved to L.A.(hollywood), CA to be with my fiance.
i've been here a little over a month and i'm still not used to anything. i guess i got too used to living in a small city, knowing where things were and finding them so easily... and here i am in one of the largest cities/populated areas in the U.S. trying to adapt.
i just recently started a job and i'm getting along with everyone rather well but here, it's almost like being in a different country... considering what i dealt with back east and what i'm dealing with here... everything from the people to the bugs.
it's wonderful being in a more populated area that has things more dedicated to my interests... there were only a small handful of people in Buffalo really interested in British pop music and other things i like... i would have to listen to the Canadian radio stations or drive up to Toronto if there was anything i really wanted that was hard to find in Buffalo.
Toronto was an amazing city and i already miss not being able to visit it anymore... if only Canadian citizenship was easy to come by, i'd be living there in a second.
some things i really know i'm going to miss....
-Curling up under big blankets and watching the snow fall
-Drives to work in the fall with the pretty changes in the leaves
i'm really going to miss the seasons and small things associated with them.
then again, being stuck in 2 terrible snow storms the past 2 years doesn't make me miss it all that much. ;)

Hey everybody. Found this community through a random link in someone's post. I'm from Seattle (the actual city not some suburb) and am now going to college in NYC. I'm definately not missing the two seasons of weather in Seattle, spring and winter. The sun is shining here and regardless of the freezing wind I love it here. I still have yet to travel to Boston, Philly or other cities along the coast, but I've only been here for six months so major road trips coming up! Ok enought of my rambling....

i'm d.c., been here for three years this week actually. and i've spent so much of that time simultaneously in awe of the east coast and longing for the west coast. they both have so many incredible characteristics, ambiances, landscapes and more. i can't live both places. although, in my mind, i think sometimes i do. i'm from california and lived in eugene, oregon for five years. and i love love love the east coast but i really think i'm a west of the rockies girl. i swear that one of the things i miss most is sunsets into the pacific. but for now, i'm doing my best to live it up in the mish-mash of political-highpowered-idealism that is d.c. Current Mood: peaceful

Just found the community. I moved out here (bay area) from Boston last Feb for work. (I grew up in Florida). I work as a consultant for a moving company = lots of driving around. I've covered the Eastbay, Southbay/silicon valley, and San Francisco.
Now is it me or do people drive like they have their heads up their asses out here? I mean, christ. It's like they're not paying attention. One drop of rain falls and everybody's driving 20 mph on the hwy. 4 way stops- its always the dance of the tentative. It's like everybody's just getting to the place for the 1st time. Nobody's ever in the correct lane ahead of time. And worst of all, the just drive so slow. Anybody with me?
