California Bound. Part 1 of The epic Cali roadtrip 2012.

The adventure officially began around 6am. I had been up packing until about 2am after a fantastic bbq at Fuzz and Leslie’s. I woke up around 5am, took a shower, packed the car, mapped a route that would take me as close as possible to Jack’s house without crossing any of the Bolder Boulder path. Jack was up even later
