So I was away for vacation for 10 days. Like I said previously, vacation is the best thing in the world. I highly recommend everyone taking one. After planning and planning where to go, my girlfriend and I chose (Ok mostly my girlfriend but I had input too) to fly out west and then drive from location to location. We figure start in San Fran then drive to Lake Tahoe, then to Mammouth, then to Las Vegas for her birthday and I could gamble and make back most of the money I spent on the trip (rrriiiiggghhhtttt).

We stayed at Orchard Garden Hotel. It’s a "green" hotel. SMALL rooms but we didn’t stay in often. (Hopefully that helped to offset some of the carbon emissions for the trip but I doubt it.) Positioned close to

Having my girlfriend with me probably got me doing more things than I ever would have done by myself. Looking back spending three days there instead on two would have been nice but it probably would have ruined the rest of the trip........to be continued.
