First stop - Irvine.
The night before the big trip we walked around a little and ended with a quick stop by the fountain.
No tripod, so the above is blurry. I set the camera on something to have it steady enough for the fountain picture...
Here's Scott relaxing before the big 'Power Trip' or marathon drive as it turned out to be.
And if anyone is wondering, 'who is Scott?' he is Mr. Foam of the first link listed on the left under Great Sites.
