It is an absolute joy to drive now that the SoCal sun is a out (rain is a different story for those who saw my ill-informed tire post this morning). Took the PCH through Newport Beach to Escondido and it was a ton of fun trying to keep up with the various Ferraris and Lamborghinis. Also, Google Maps tried to take us straight through Pendleton, which went well...fortunately the guard was a fellow Omahan and was totally cool about it.
