Is anyone else going, "oh my goodness, it's JUNE! How'd that happen?!" or is it just me?
Yeah, I thought so.
June is a great month. It's my Dad's birthday, the beginning of summer, time for warmer weather to make its appearance, the month before my birthday...the GOLDEN birthday. I know I will have more to say about that as it comes.
I got free tickets to see our local baseball team play! That'll be on the agenda.
NEEDTOBREATHE at the end of August.
Oh! And a somewhat spontaneous trip to Seattle! I've never been, and I promised myself I'd go this year. Now I am just determining the means of how to get there. I don't want it to be an expensive trip...as I still have a trip to NY hopefully in the works in the fall! So here are the options, and maybe you can help me decide? I think I've made up my mind, but feel free to comment.
Flying. This is the quickest route. However, it is also pretty pricey. Cheapest flight found so far from SLO= $430. Cheapest flight from San Francisco= $230 (better....BUT you have to add gas and parking for an estimated total of $340) I even tried bargaining for my flight, with no success.
By train. This was my original hope. But much to my surprise this method costs $320! Yikes-o-rama!
By car. This method is about the same length of time as the train, factoring one night stay. I've driven the long road to Vegas many times, and this trip would be MUCH more beautiful. It would be like a long Vegas trip x2 each way. But the grand total for gas and hotel would be between $220 and $250.
