I'm not picky. I just have excellent taste in friends.

Yep! Every time I'm in NoCal, I have to take it down to Highway 1 and follow that to Pt. Reyes.

It's a ritual now :-)

Ever been to the ranch at 5858 Lucas Valley Road?

I drove by a few years ago out of curiosity, but in general I always head the opposite way toward to ocean.

Did you see that Simpson's episode where Bart and Lisa go to the ranch and demand to see George Lucas after seeing one of the sequels? One of the best ones ever (they depict Lucas as this extremely short and crabby man. Hilarious.)

I haven't seen that one, no, but I've heard about it.

TechGuy once chatted for half an hour with Lucas at a 50-year anniversary celebration of the elementary school they both attended. He said Lucas was about average height with very small feet (maybe men's size 5 1/2), and very friendly (especially after realizing that TechGuy wasn't there to do an interview).

You do know you can see some of the studio from 101 -- or at least used to be able to. I haven't been out that way since 2002.

I haven't been there since ... oh, before you were born getting my driver's license. Dad was running out a road construction job in that area and they were still building the studio.

I'm older than you think

I remember the first time I saw it was in 1992. My Dad pointed it out to me as we were driving to my grandparent's house (they live in Sonoma and I have a bunch of family up in Santa Rosa).

I don't remember seeing it when I was last out there, but that was probably because I was driving and not the passenger.

You should take a day and drive out that way for a few hours (I know Modesto isn't exactly close). The scenery is just stunning and the road is absolutely gorgeous (especially in the rain, ironically). Pt. Reyes is literally one of my most favorite places on earth.
