Hi guys,

I thought I'd put a few feelers out for a random upcoming trip this month. I'll be leaving Spain soon and flying to San Francisco around the 17th Jan, flying out again approximately 12 days later. I'm looking at a potential road trip for the hell of it (motorbike, car, donkey, piggy back, pogo stick, don't mind really..) maybe take in the Grand Canyon/Vegas/Yosemite National Park even, though my geography for these parts is a little hazy.

So my question:- anyone wanna come and share the trip? I can cook and share the excitement but I'm boring. Any ideas or suggestions for an itinerary over 10-12 days? Wanna flag us down and share a roadside beer? At this stage it's all unplanned so I can be flexible. Your kinda thing? Give us a shout.. thumbsup.png

Well, we were going to go, and it is definitely a huge atrraction, but never quite made it over. My cousin's went and said it was okay, pretty interesting to see inspiring very dark and foreboding feelings of what it was like to be a prisoner there, but not really something to write home about. Ofcourse, that's just their opinion. You can see Alcatraz, a very dark and ominous building, if you walk anywhere near the waterline. I've read some history on it before we went, and I found with the history and just seeing the building itself, that was enough to spark my imagination, though when we go back I think we'll likely check it out.
