All is well. We’re checked into the Quality Inn here and getting ready to head to the gig.
Last night, Han & I stayed in the room under the stairs in Sylmar’s Good Nite Inn. That drive was fine but we were tired and it was windy there. I vaguely recall watching Bruce Willis do strange things with a turkey on the Letterman show.
Today’s drive started early (7:15am) but we got to Sacramento around 12:30 or so to pick up our friend, C. Sacramento was so beautiful with all the trees still changing colors. The weather was really nice and the downtown area where we picked up C was totally hip and inviting. Even all the buildings are painted in vibrant colors so it was this cool visual smorgasbord.
The bummer was driving through Central CA which was socked in with smoke from the fire in Santa Barbara. Terrible news there.
We’ll probably do some site-seeing tomorrow before heading to Chico. So far so good!
