Post Walking the West Coast
Next March I will be walking the West Coast from San Diego to Seattle. Details can be found at my blog on walkthataway.blogspot.com

If this doesn't prove that I'm crazy, nothing will. ;)

In any case, if anyone here would like to meet up with a half-crazed, Bitcoin-happy, Heinlein enthusiast along the way, let me know. :)

Sure! I'll stand for a meal in Santa Cruz or thereabouts.

Are you going to be making detours to see the various California Heinlein residences? I gather they're all reasonably near the coast.

Good luck and don't kick a soccer ball in front of you as you go.

StagXing, I live in Reno. I'm not likely to be at the coast when you come through, or I'd offer to buy you dinner. But remind us when the time is closer, and maybe my husband and I can arrange to be in the San Francisco Bay area . There's a *wonderful* little Middle Eastern restaurant in downtown Sunnyvale that we like to visit when we're there. I used to live three blocks from it. It's called "DishDash", and it's one of the best restaurants in the Bay Area -- seriously. Even if we can't be there, you should try it.

I'm familar with Bitcoin, although after dabbling a bit in it in 2011 I cashed out. At the time it was the realm of currency speculators, and I needed something reliable to allow easy payments for a small business without paying Danegeld to the credit card companies. Now I wish I'd hung onto those few hundred test bitcoins. <wry grin> Once the exchange rates settle down and the market is less full of converted collectible card swapping sites masquerading as currency exchanges, I'll probably be back. :-)
