May 14, 2007 – Dan, Jon, John the SLO Journey

Jon and I said our good byes to the 5 and moved along the 405, picking up Dan from John Wayne and saying good bye to Mom. From the 405 we engaged the 101 and enjoyed the short jaunt into San Louis Obisbo. We arrived at Tyler’s ranch at about nine o’clock. The fire was going and the salsa was ready, we poured martinis and put the sausages on, next the tri-tip, then the beans, the garlic bread, and we opened a bottle of wine. One incredible dinner, a second bottle of wine, and two movies later I was crashing out and the clock read 3:40 AM. Morning arrived too quickly, we thanked Tyler and he went to work, we skated and played video games for about an hour and then rolled through Starbucks on our way back to the 101.

On to Berkeley – Four hours out, right?
