If you're looking at the Northwest, I suggest a camping trip. There are so many amazing ecosystems around here, and they're all relatively close to one another. You can rent a car (or camper van) and see so many amazing things in Washington and Oregon. Examples include:
Sandy coastal beaches
Alpine forests and meadows
The high desert
San Juan islands
The Columbia River Gorge
The Painted Hills
Going on a trek like this really lets you get out and experience what an amazing and vast country we live in. It's a great way to connect with nature and with yourself. If you want any specific recommendations, let me know.
Rad! I hope you have a great time while you're here.
If you want to go to LoveCraft, it is literally walking distance from the Bremerton ferry. So you catch the Bremerton ferry in downtown Seattle, ride the boat, and then walk like 3 blocks to the brewery. No driving needed. Plus you get to ride the ferry and get great views of Puget Sound!
Anyways, Seattle is my favorite city in the world, I love living here, and August is probably the best month to be here (weather wise). Have fun!
And yes, this is the Eric from PA.
Slaughterhouse Five is so good. I read it over a East to West coast flight a few years back, and couldn't get over how amazing it was. I really need to make time for some more Vonnegut in my life. What would you recommend for the next book I read? Cat's Cradle or this Sirens of Titan deal? Something else?Cat's Cradle is my favorite book of all time. Sirens of Titan is also awesome (hence, the unofficial "Vonnegut Trilogy" with S5, CC, and SoT).Other notable mentions: Breakfast of Champions & Galapagos.
I got a very strong The Devil's Backbone vibe from this trailer. It makes me happy to see Guillermo going back to his smaller, personal films (which at one point he only did in Spanish) only with big Hollywood actors. It would seem that with The Shape of Water and Crimson Peak, we are seeing a reimagining of GDT's earlier work with an enhanced pedigree. Perhaps this is his response to leaving the nine-figure behemoth, The Hobbit.
