Re: Anyone planning a trip/vacation this summer?

July 10-14 I'll be camping in Okemah, OK for the annual Woody Guthrie Folk Festival. I do it every year. It's the five days I take for myself, no matter what else comes my way. It's a tiny ass town, and I've made friends with the grand-daughter of the owner of the coolest bar in town. Just a bunch of hipsters and old folkies hanging out for 5 days going to concerts, sitting around the camp drinking, smoking (I no longer partake in that, but man... back in the day) and generally hootenannying.... good times.

I am confused about something though. Why the hell does it take TWELVE HOURS to take Amtrak from San Francisco to San Diego? They're only 500 miles apart! I love trains, so I wanted to take one from SF to SD (the tour ends in SF), but then they throw that in my face. Oh well, at least the flight only lasts an hour...
I believe there is a layover and a change of trains at LAUPT. I belive the Coast Starlight terminates in LA and you have to transfer to a San Diegan. It's about 8 hours from LA to SF on the train once you figure in stops.

Marshmellows you mean? We didn't camp outdoors, unfortunately.
I think he was referencing ST V.

Yeah, I figured there was a joke that was just cropdusting me

The whole time, I kept trying to figure out where exactly they would have camped.

No doubt I was trying more to pinpoint where it would have been in regards to the movie, but then again, these things are hard to figure out, particularly since they're not always filmed on location.

Yes, I know. Was that scene even filmed in Yosemite anyway? For all we know, it was a wooded city park across the street from the Paramount Lot.

Well, late summer. Going to NYC with a friend at the beginning of September for about a week.
