Well, it's decided: The roadtrip is going to be about 6500 miles: 3500 out to Cannonn Beach, Oregon; 1000 down Hwy 101 on the Pacific Coast through Oregon and California; and then 2000 miles back on Hwy 80 (though we could take Route 66, which would be kinda cool). I'm thinking that if we leave on Wednesday, August 6th from my place we should be out to Oregon by Saturday the 9th. Then we've got about 4 days or so in Oregon and California before heading back. We'd be back in Wisconsin on Sunday, August 17th. Charlie doesn't have anything going on this summer other than working out and getting ready for the Marines in October, so this should work out pretty well for the both of us. Other than drinking a beer in every state (we're gonna try and pick up a beer that's actually brewed in each state, too) we really don't have much for plans. I'd like to see Yosemite, go bungee jumping, maybe learn to surf, but other than that it's all up in the air, which is refreshing and scary at the same time. Considering this is something that I've been planning out for 5 months now it's pretty crazy that it's going to happen in 3 weeks.
