The California State Railroad Museum in Old Sacramento is awesome too.

I wish I'd gone in the KCNP caves there but my buddy (who was driving) said he'd already been and didn't want to go back.

If he gets to the coast, Hearst Castle in San Simeon might have a piece of sculpted metal or two. California Coast Route 1 is one twisty sumbitch north of there if he enjoys tossin' metal around.

The (John) Muir Woods and Mt. Tamalpais just north of San Fran are also must-sees.

--If you make it as far as the San Fran BA you've got to check out the BAEM, providing you're around in time for one of their meetings.

Yea! That is the OFFICIAL State of California Mines and Geology collection. It used to be housed at the Ferry Building in San Francisco, but was moved to remote Mariposa under the cover of darkness (physically and politically) several years ago. It IS a nice collection!

On the other hand, if he's only used to driving in flat places with straight roads, he should stay off of highway one, as much as possible.

Like I said earlier, there are a lot of "must-sees" in California. I still haven't gotten to all of them.

Nope. I'm in the Santa Clara Valley. Formerly known as "The Valley of Heart's Delight." Now known as "Silicon Valley." Yech!

I grew up on Branham Lane, if you are familiar with that area. That was a very nice place when I was a kid.

I used to live not far away, just off Monterey Highway for a while. It wasn't particularly nice any more by that time, however. I grew up in Menlo Park and Palo Alto in the '50s and '60s.

And don't forget the Hornet, across the Bay at Alameda:
