Lake Tahoe, Yosemite and staying alive

No updates for the past few days, hopefully no one was worried! Wireless was poor in Lake Tahoe and extortionate in Yosemite. Both very beautiful and scenic places with lots to explore.

We’ve just arrived in Lone Pine, around 600 miles into our 1800 mile journey. It’s very hot here, even at 4PM! Gonna be insane tomorrow!

Vegas tomorrow after a four hour drive! On the plus side we’re now pretty much adjusted to the time difference!

NASCAR, State Capitol and nacho cheese

So, after our breakfast yesterday we spent the day sightseeing in Sacramento. We headed for some lunch, had some amazing (messy!) nacho cheese hotdogs at Fanny Ann’s.

We then headed over to Capitol Park, but were a bit shocked to see roads closed and a lot of activity on the way. A friendly local policeman told us that 50 (Sarah thought he said 15!) NASCAR trucks were coming through. Was rather an amazing sight, lots of people out on the street taking photos and videos. Capitol Park was good, there were even orange trees, although I couldn’t reach any of them!

We finished the day with an insanely cheesy pizza, which was pretty nice, and we even have some left over for lunch today. We had a pretty early night as we’re not quite fully adjusted to the time difference yet.

Breakfast at the hotel done, time to get packed and then we’ll be on our way to Lake Tahoe. Looking forward to getting the proper camera out!

Pancakes and French toast

Wow, the highways around San Fran were pretty insane but we got here in one piece! It kinda looks like the wild west in old town Sacramento but the breakfast is good!

Quite a few things we want to do here today, including the railroad museum. Weather is looking pretty awesome so far!

Early start

Well it’s just gone 5am here and we’re up and rearing to go. Just having a coffee and getting our stuff together then we’re heading to Sacramento. Hopefully it won’t be too busy by the time we arrive!

Long first day

Just about to get into bed, it’s only 7pm here but we’ve been awake 22 hours!

More tomorrow!

The start of our journey to California

After an early start and a quick flight we’re in London in plenty of time for our flight to San Francisco. Excellent service from British Airways so far, we even got breakfast on the plane! Time to play the waiting game now; we’re stocked up on sweets, books, magazines and a travel pillow for me! We’re both feeling quite tired, which is good as it means we stand a good chance of passing the time on the long flight with a snooze!
