Thinking about a California road trip in August with my 8yo and 12yo boys and my wife that would have us driving from San Francisco to Orange County. Looking for itinerary ideas. Thinking of things like Sequoia National Park or maybe 101 highway along the coast. Any must sees you can recommend?

Winchester Mystery House in San Jose - DJF from Android
Oh - I did that years ago with Alex and my parents. We started at the Sequoia National Park (stayed there a couple of days in cabins with no TV - he nearly died) and drove over to San Fran, where we stayed for another day or two, then drove down the 101 highway to LA, where we did the Universal Theme Park, Venice Beach and such. It was so much fun!!! I agree that stopping in Monterey... more... - WebGoddess
The tricky part is navigating all the family I have spread out across CA who might be expecting a visit. Cousins, aunts, uncles, and a brother in places like San Anselmo, Berkeley, Sacramento, Carmel, and Tustin. Torn between family obligations and desire to wander free. - Stephen Francoeur
I wish we had time to drive north to see Redwoods NP. Have to save that for another trip. - Stephen Francoeur
If you're sticking close to the coastline, you could give the Sacramento relatives the heads up & they could meet you in SF or Berkeley, which isn't all that far. Same with Tustin once you get to SoCal and Huntington Beach. If your boys are into skateboarding they will love Santa Cruz & the OC. - Corinne L
Carmel beach. Kayak at the elk horn slough. Wine taste your ass off. Take a whale watching excursion. - Todd Hoff

Who should we trust? - Scholarly Communications @ Duke http://blogs.library.duke.edu/scholco... via @instapaper
TRUST NO ONE - Meg VMeg
I love Kevin, but who says most academic authors have ANY VALUES AT ALL relative to scholarly communication? Certainly hasn't been my experience even with most ACADEMIC LIBRARIANS ffs. - RepoRat
Put another way, they're not publishing because they value communication. They publish because it's an enforced activity. They can't not. - RepoRat
I wonder how he'd have to rewrite that post if he were to start from the premise you suggest. Would the issue of trust still pertain? - Stephen Francoeur
Good question. I think yes, but it'd be exactly the twisted, selfish kind of trust we're seeing now -- "whom/what can I trust to advance my career?" - RepoRat
