I am getting out of the suburban hell that is Orange County, and going up to Big Sur to do some hiking tomorrow. We have rented a cabin, and there will be NO INTERNET. There will, however, be blue jays, redwoods and, if I'm lucky, condors. Bliss.
Big Sur is truly impressive, one of the best things that California has to offer. Remember to take along some binoculars and find an ocean overlook. It's Gray Whale migration season. Sorry about the rain tho.
Any conversation about a sufficiently complex subject is indistinguishable from babble.
