I'm going to prison
4/5/06, 2:27am
Well... Alcatraz, anyway. And only for one day.

I'm heading to San Francisco early Friday morning on a secret mission, but I think I can spill the beans here since Dante doesn't know about this site and won't see this message.

One of the guys on the Canon forum owns a restaurant in San Anselmo, a small suburb of San Francisco. His restaurant was flooded back in December when it rained so hard the business district in town was under about two feet of water. He spent a couple months rebuilding and finally reopened a month or so ago. So, several of us are going there on Saturday and just showing up unannounced to surprise him.

On the way up, following the 101, I'm planning to stop off at the Winchester Mystery House and Wyatt Earp's grave. Sunday will be Alcatraz. When I was in San Francisco with Madonna two years ago, we wanted to go there, but didn't realize how far in advance the tickets sell out. This time I'm better prepared. I bought my ticket online over a month ago.

I was planning to take Highway 1 home, but it looks like that might not work. A rockslide yesterday caused considerable damage to the road just south of San Francisco and now it's closed indefinitely while they rebuild it. I don't know how long that will take, so I'll just have to keep checking Caltrans' web site or check my maps and figure a way around the closed section. I really would like to stop off at Big Sur again.

That sounds neat!

Be safe and have a great time.

Is this an Ashley trip?

That's the plan! I just hope the rain lets up long enough for me to get around Alcatraz for some pictures outdoors without fear of getting the camera wet. Most of my lenses are waterproof, but the camera bodies aren't. My umbrella and duster are packed (well... they will be soon!).

>Is this an Ashley trip?

No. Ashley will be moving in with Madonna tomorrow afternoon. I'd love to take her along with me, but I'll be going to too many places she just can't get to. I didn't even want to ask if I could get her on the boat to Alcatraz after I saw all the requirements it would take to get her to Catalina last October (which she also didn't get to go to).

You might be able to go south from SF for a bit on the 5 and then cut back to the coast at Monterey, if you REALLY want to take the 1!
