North America Planning (6 Comments)


This is the draft for an itinerary in North America. I’m currently jotting down the places I want to visit, and trying to comine the driving distances with the time I’d like to spend in each location.

This is the wishlist, with possible dates:

  • Arrive at LAX 18 November 2007.
  • Los Angeles to Mammoth Lakes on sat 24 nov 2007, ——–>7 hours drive
  • Mammoth Lakes to Silicon Valley on tue 27 nov 2007,——->6.30 h drive
  • San Francisco to Lake Tahoe on friday 30 nov 2007, ——–>3.30 h drive
  • Lake Tahoe to Mount Hood on thurs 06 dec 2007, ———–>11 h drive
  • Mount Hood to Seattle on sun 09 dec 2007, ——————>4.30 h drive
  • Seattle to Vancouver on mon 10 dec 2007, ——————>2.30 h drive
  • Vancouver to Whistler on wed 12 dec 2007, —————–>2.30 h drive
  • Whistler to Lake Louise on sat 15 dec 2007, —————–>10 h drive
  • Lake Louise to Whitehorse on tue 18 dec 2007, ——>34 h drive (oooooops…!!!!!)
  • Whitehorse to Anchorage on sat 22 dec 2007, —————>24 h drive

Then it goes on like this:

  • Anchorage to Seattle to Salt Lake city on sat 29 dec 2007, by airplane (I think there’s no direct flight from Anchorage to Salt Lake City or Anchorage to Denver)
  • Salt Lake City to Denver on mon 31 december 2007, 8 hours drive
  • Denver to NYC on 16 january 2008, hopefully with a direct flight

Whew, it’s a long one eh? Maybe I’ll have to cut something out, that’s why I ask for your help. Y’all more than welcome to leave comments and suggestions!

Snowboard in Africa – Wishlist (No Comments)

snowmaking in Lesotho

Google Earth sunday night research presents:

Guardate la foto, quelle sono le “piazze” di neve create dall’innevamento artificiale del resort al primo posto nella lista, in Lesotho. Non vedo l’ora di stare in cima a quella pista con la tavola saldamente attaccata ai piedi!

Look at the picture, those white patches are made by the artificial snowmaking machines operating in the first resort of the above list, in Lesotho. I can’t wait to be on top of that slope with my board firmly strapped up!
