  1. This is a Los Angeles County Health order not State of California. So it wont be relevant to Disneyland but will cover Universal Studios and Magic Mountain. It could lead the way for the state to pass a similar order but who knows.
  2. @Nick Vermeil coming through BIG TIME!!!! Just received a perfectly packaged, massive haul. Full Spread Shirt 1 Shirt 2 Shirt 3 Front , Shirt 3 Back MAJOR Thanks Nick! Can't wait to crack these open.
  3. You can still bring your own food and water. We bring dinner all the time as well as peanuts. Tickets are a little more than $6. An evening at Dodger Stadium or the Hollywood Bowl is fantastic. Great weather, great views, picnic dinner!
  4. Was at the Angels / Red Sox game today. Main reason I went was to see Ohtani play. Such a fun player to watch. I'm a Dodger fan and go to ~10 games a year. It's just a fun relaxing time to visit with friends.
  5. That is actually a great time to go weather wise. It generally won't be too hot yet. Where to stay really depends on what type of experience you're looking for. Palm Springs is a good hour+ drive to get into the park. There are lots of hotels, resorts, restaurants, golf if that is what you are looking for. If you want something more isolated, natural and relaxed find an AirBnB near Yucca Valley or the town of Joshua Tree. Its on the North side of the park. Lots of places out in the desert with lots of space. At JTNP the Keys Ranch Tour is great if you like history. Buy tickets in advance. Tons of great hikes of various lengths and good rock climbing if you're into that. The Aerial Tram to Mt San Jacinto is great. Lots of hikes you can do at the top. The Living Desert is also great. Pappy & Harriet's is a fun place to get dinner. Particularly if they have live music. Make a reservation well in advance if you plan to go. The Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum is also an off beat experience if you're into that type of thing.
  6. Check with the rental companies. I think you can pick equipment up the night before and only pay 1 day rental if you return it by the end of the day.
  7. It depends on how far you plan to hike. I have done top down (about 15 miles) 5 times. I wouldn't ever consider doing the hike without the shoes or some type of stick. The grip and warmth of the shoes and the balance and exploration of the stick are all essential. If you are planning a few hours of hiking from the bottom up you can get away without renting shoes but it may be less comfortable. I've hike with people who didn't get the shoes and they are always way behind the rest of the group. Like The Man with No Name said, stepping between rocks rather than on top of rocks is key. You will keep your balance a lot easier. Also take your time and don't rush. If you get moving to fast you are bound to slip and hurt yourself.
  8. That may be a lot of ground to cover over that time period. It depends on if Sun - Thur includes your flying days, what time of year you are going, and what you plan to do. You could easily spend 2-3 days just at Zion if you want to. There are plenty of hikes and things to check out. Add Byrce and Cedar Breaks and you can have a real full itinerary without spending all your time in the car. If you don't really plan on hiking or spending time in anyone place you could conceivable go to Arches. I would take HWY 12 through Escalante if you go that route. Lots of cool landscapes to see. It will take longer but be a lot more interesting.
  9. From a distance perspective Trinidad looks right. But you way want to consider staying further north, maybe Crescent City. Then you can use the day driving to Richardson to hit some of the Redwood National Park sites. It will make for a longer day but there are some great hikes. I was there last summer and would recommend these shorter hikes for a day where you're driving to set up camp at Richardson: Lady Bird Johnson Grove - Just north of Orick. Easy walk, wide well maintained trail. Lots of big trees to see Fern Canyon @ Gold Bluffs Beach - It is a rough rode down there and takes a little bit of time, but this was one of the coolest hikes we did. Prairie Creek Visitor Center - There are a web of trails from this visitor center. Great for seeing lots of trees and setting a trail length that fits your schedule
  10. In west coast news.... https://www.micechat.com/279966-breaking-news-disneyland-annual-pass-program-ending/
  11. Azul is a great game that works well for 4 people but can be played by up to 4. Mr Jack is a fun 2 player game but is 2 player only.
  12. It may be too much on the avant garde side but Frank Zappa uses xylophone extensively. "St Alfonzo's Pancake Breakfast" is a great song that features it. Some others: Peter Gabriel "No Self Control" The White Stripes "The Nurse" Tears for Fears "Change"
