Safely Arrived in California

Well, I'm here! Flight was fine, aside from getting up at 4:30 to be at the airport on time (and some annoyingly slow lines at check-in). I opted for the talking GPS unit on the rental car, which is always fun. It insisted that I go out Highway 50 to 49 (instead of down 99 to 12). When I turned South on 99, it kept beeping at me and giving me instructions to turn around (Take next exit, dammit! Okay, it didn't really say that, but it had that tone). So I took the scenic route. It was pleasant enough, although the twisty road would have been more enjoyable with less other traffic. Still, I made it to San Andreas, met up with Stonecarrier and went to the local taqueria for lunch. So far, so good...
