The past few weekends I always had epic plans for the work I’m going to do, but I never got anything done. This week I made the epic plan (I made the plan on Friday evening) to do nothing, and succeeded at that. Well, except for a not so good TopCoder on Saturday morning — my rating dropped, but I made the cut for the next round of the TopCoder Open.
Then, on Saturday afternoon I took the BMW and rode north the US-101 on the way to... wherever the road happened to take me. It was a town called Eureka, six hours’ uninterrupted drive from home (of course I didn’t drive without breaks; I rode three blocks two hours each). I came back on the mythical Highway 1, the Pacific Coast Highway. Best ride of my life! I discovered, there’s a lot more to California than nice weather on the way to and from work.
