Seattle baristas universally used "split shot" to describe half decaf. When I say it in San Francisco, they stare at me as if I just spoke Klingon.

After a cumulative 9 hours over two days, we have California license plates! There's gotta be a way to make that faster... Still, everyone we met all along the way was incredibly friendly - from the insurance office to the smog check to the DMV.

I found a 20 sided die on the pavement on my morning run and pocketed it. Let me know if you need to make any saving throws today.
