road trip woo!

So, after being inspired by Derek and Meagan’s trip cross country, I decided that I NEEDED a road trip, if only to blog about it on the way.  My blogs likely wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining as Dereks, but I wanted a reason to blog mobile-y through WordPress on my sweet new iPhone.  Well folks, looks like the time is nigh.

So Mick does some stuff for some company and he has to drop some things off in Seattle.  Now, apparently its expensive to move these things in a truck, and they can’t travel by plane, so he offered to drive them.  So…he and I are embarking on a journey.  Driving to Seattle on Saturday, and flying back Sunday evening.  It’s not a week and a half of sight seeing,  hiking and eating.  Its a drive.  A few hours in Seattle. And a plane.

However, 15 hours in an SUV with Mick will give me plenty of time to get a few entries in, especially because I mapped our route to Seattle with a few definitel layovers.

1. We will drive up the 101 toward the Redwoods past Eureka.  I cant remember the last time I’ve seen a Redwood, and with our awesome SLR cameras, and my great iPhone camera to back it up, I figured why not. Maybe we will drive thru one of these.

2.  We will hopefully be stopping in Portland as well.  Its on the route, and I hear I am supposed to eat a donut from Voodoo Donuts. There is supposedly a specific type of donut I’m supposed to eat there, but I’m not gonna tell you what it is till I eat it.  Don’t want to ruin the surprise.

3. Then, its a straight shoot to Seattle, at least in my plan.  Im sure sleep will happen too, somewhere, but I figure with such a short trip, I want to spend as much time in Seattle on Sunday as I can before our 6:00 plane flight.  I WILL go back to Seattle, and spend at least a weekend in Portland soon….I have a feeling this trip will be a tease.

What do you do for 15 hours in a car?  Music, chit chat, sleep?  What kind of games do you play?  I want good road trip ideas.  (Even mini-road trips)

What has no arms, no legs and hangs on a wall?

Art.

Its my newest obsession. With the passing of my good friend Robyn, came my need to invest in certain things that she likes.  Good thing that I like them too.  I have for some time now, even when she was alive, wanted to invest in some artists that she was fond of.  Especially Sam Flores.  Robyn had this beautiful tattoo on her arm, based off of one of his pieces.

His large scale pieces are beautiful, but at this stage in my life, there is no way I can afford any of it.

He is SF based, and sells much of his stuff out of Upper Playground.  We went there today, and the only one they had was a signed print.  Didn’t buy it there, but JUST purchased it online.  Looking forward to getting it in the mail, and going to get it framed.  San Francisco represent, and there is just something so intriguing about his work.

At Upper Playground, I’m also a fan of Jeremy Fish.  He does a lot of skate decks, but considering I don’t skate, maybe I’ll just get a pillow.  I dig this one…but I think its sold out.  I’ll keep an eye out, and hopefully find it on ebay or something similar.
