Wow San Francisco is amazing! and we got to see quite a bit of it because when we arrived at 9 o'clock on Friday night a couple of very tired boys, we took about 50 wrong turns on the crazy highway system they've got going on there and it took us 4hours and few laps of San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland to finally find my friends brother who was too drunk to come and find us... Huge welcome to San Fran party that night with Seth and a few of his friends and nieghbours, then we spent the next couple of days recovering at Chantal and Matts converted wharehouse flat with their tattoo artist flatemates and their pet snake and Chinchilla(aka - Killer Chilla). Also got to watch the sunset glow light up the Golden Gate Bridge one afternoon, and we did tour with Yogie bear's Park Ranger to the old Alcatraz prison out in the harbour which was awesome. Time to get on the road again though, I've got untill the 21st to cross the Canadian border and get my work visa stamped in or I lose it so we're in a bit of a hurry. So today we're

Dan couldn't wait for a toilet as we crossed the 10min long Bay Bridge into San Fran for the second time so resorted to nearly overflowing this 3litre chip bag in the back seat of the Crysler. "wooooah.. it feels like a hot-water bottle!" - quote of the night from a slightly drunk Dan after almost a dozen "timekilling" beers
heading up the 101 coastal route for while then probably going to cut in an hit up the Simpsons or the Flanders for a night on the couch in Springfield, Oregon.

This is where the Convicts used to be able to come and breath the fresh air of freedom for a hour a day before getting sent back to their cold little cells
