    Don't know where Valencia is, but when the wife and I went out there a couple years ago, I got burned pretty good on the tops of my feet. Must have forgotten those.
    Take sunscreen, like Dennis said, and use it if you burn. You'll be happy you did.
    Oh yeah, have fun if you can get away from work.:cool:

    My cousin's husband is from LA, they live across the road from me. His father owned a pile of fruit farms in Oxnard, he grew up there. Met my cousin, married her, and moved back here to the country. He'd be able to tell you where to go, but he's Latino........do you like Mexican food??

    90 minutes away is Santa Barbara. Good food, deep sea fishing, beaches, mountains right up to the sea. One of my favorite spots.

    SF and Seattle are both great cities (and I hate cities). I wish I could do the drive up the coast that you are doing! I bet it's amazing

    In 1981 I bought a flop top sports car in LA and the next leg of the vacation was up Highway 1 from LA to the wine country before heading inland to Sacramentio. Fantastic drive.

    Indeed, the Pacific coast is spectacular. We'll be heading down the Oregon coast for some van camping in a couple weeks.

    In-&-Out ...get the double double with onions. Last time I was in Valencia they were building a bridge over a pit of sand..with plans to fill it with water. Thought it a bit odd, being the desert and all. A curious folk those SoCals.
