Leg one of our flight is over!! Some serious jet lag going on here, 3 in the morning and no hope of me sleeping! So we made it into the country uneventfully (apart from Dad's joke with the customs officer about the six shooter in his pocket). Picked up our sweet Dodge Charger rental which was slightly more eventful. The rental company tried to charge an extra $500 for dropping the car in Vegas, but with some negotiations I managed to get him down to $0, so all was well. Sooooo we hit the road......and almost a few other cars! Been 2 years since driving in this crazy place, but it feels longer than that!! After a freshen up at the hotel we checked out a few of the sites, mainly the interior of the nearest IHOP's, that airline food would be struggling to sustain a Pygmy Mouse. It is much colder here than we expected, hopefully it warms up as we head east...........

Another awesome day in San Fran, had to do some sprinting to make it in time for our tour of Alcatraz, as it turns out the car park I picked out wasn't as close as I thought.................oops!  Had a pleasant morning on the island, glad they didn't decide to lock us in for the night.  Spent the rest of the day walking the streets, enjoying their food and riding the Cable Car.  Those things are the most amazing transport ever!!!  Under road cable pulling tram like cars, AMAZING!
