Twas the Night Before Travel…
It is Christmas day. Holiday lights are reflecting off my monitor in nice patterns and I have had more than three meals already. But tomorrow morning brings a long-dreamed-about adventure; a trip down Highway One from Santa Barbara to Rossmoor, California.
It’s nothing more than an intermediate bike tour but it has everyone in the family behaving as if I’m out to run a marathon with no training. I have looked up some routes and maps but decided to wing it. I’ll camp tomorrow at Leo Carillo State Beach and then take off early to flow with LA traffic through Torrence and North Long Beach.
My pal Steve Lange did this ride in one day. I have the Long Haul Trucker loaded down and will glide along at 10mph. Shouldn’t be a problem. Right?
I’ll post pictures from my adventure with the Tumblr iPhone client and welcome any guidance from others as I go.

I am obsessed with this. It is astonishing. This used to be my daily commute to work every day. Artists take something like a good mountain road and turn it into something as amazing as a helicopter ski run, a giant, California wave, or a dance on a stage. I worry about Mr. Chin, but I thank him for this amazing art.
Intro. Unlike Mr. Gore UCSB invented the Internet. Also we invented Green. Our co-worker invented the White-emiting LED. What are we doing to leverage this?
part one. Sweeping overview from an end-user viewpoint.
How can we make the most out of this? How does it fit in with our mission, our careers, our productivity, and our collective goals?
Part two. Present some research and local best practices. My goal. The Candace Presentation Zen experience.
