If you had 1 day in San Francisco with a free rental car and you’ve already been all over San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Palo Alto, and Napa and Sonoma, but nowhere else.
Which of these would you more likely do?
1) Drive North on 101 and hike the Redwood Forests, drive Avenue of the Giants, visit Arcata, possibly make it up to Medford, Oregon.
2) Drive down to Santa Cruz, Cruise Pacific Highway down to Carmel and Monterey and Big Sur?
Which is better?
I dont have a credit card to buy online a baseball with a sensor inside to tell you how fast you can throw in mph. So can you please tell me where I can buy one from a store in redwood city,belmont, san carlos, menlo park in california. Thank you.
1. old-growth redwood tree
2. salt (sodium chloride)
They both are nonrenewable in a physical sense but one is defined as renewable in an economic sense.
I think its the old-growth redwood tree?
I’m a novice with limited horseback riding experience. I’ll be going at the end of December. I’m also interested in Redwood trails in the area.
My best friend and I want to go on a vacation together. We’re both currently 18, but we still need time to save for the trip so it will be another year or so before we take the trip. We live on Long Island in New York and want to experience a dramatically different landscape and we think California is just the ticket.
I have already done some research and have picked out a few spots I definitely want to check out, but several questions remain about how much time I should dedicate to each destination and the economics of the whole endeavor – we’re both students and are on a relatively tight budget. I know we wont be able to do everything I’ve picked and I’d like some advice on what to do and what to skip. We’d like to balance serene natural experiences with exciting city adventures. As far as nightlife goes, we not into dance clubs and would prefer live music venues. Some suggestions for each city listed would be greatly appreciated. We love rock and alternative music. I also have an obsession with french fries. If you know of any great places for french fries along our journey please share them with me. When we go to the national parks we would camp but when in the bigger cities we could also use some suggestions for cool hotels that arent too pricey.
Here are the places I would like to visit.
Torrey Pines State Reserve
Channel Islands National Park
Point Reyes National Seashore
Redwood National Park
In the daytime we would like to check out parks, zoos, art galleries and museums, as well as architectural landmarks and interesting neighborhoods. Any points of interest that you could contribute for any of these destinations would be greatly appreciated, I’m just trying to gather as much information as possible.
I live by a lake with plenty of land and forest area and I was wondering if i can grow a redwood.
South American Surfing
Surfers from all over the world venture to South American in search for legendary breaks that have made this continent a hot surf region. The low prices on food, lodging, and entertainment make it an ideal place for surfers to travel around. The surf conditions in South America are as varied as the coastlines. The west coast from Ecuador down to Chile receives consistent southwest groundswells from the juicy southern hemi storms. The east coast of South America is very different. There are far less groundswells, especially at the lower latitudes. The waves aren’t great in Argentina and Uruguay, but Brazil has some quality surf spots and has produced many premier surfers.
Ecuador: The excellent surf season on the equator runs from January to April. Montanita on the Salinas peninsula is a hot spot for surfers, and is very crowded much of the year. There are a few other isolated beaches up and down the Pacific coast with good waves though. Although most go to see the wildlife, the Galapagos Islands have a few good spots. The Galapagos Islands pick up many swells from the north and south, without a continental shelf waves build up quick with immense power. The water is very clear at the better spots, with sparkling, clean waves that can make it hard to estimate depth.
Brazil: The long coastline is the stuff of legends. Nearly all of the Brazil coast can be surfed, although the north is best. Copacabana and Ipanema are the best known surf beaches in Rio de Janeiro. Florianopolis is a fun, party island that has some of the most consistent surf on the Atlantic side, with the best waves between April and October.
Peru: Quickly becoming one of the top surf sites in the world, Peru has given birth to a few professional surfers. Lima has several good beaches that are easy to access along the south coast, such as Punta Hermosa. To the north of Lima are several long breaks, including Chicama. Not far from the Ecuador border is the beach town of Mancora. The country’s main surfer hang out has year round tropical weather and fun vibes.
Chile: The Humboldt Current brings constant surf to the Chilean coast but the waters around Chile can be pretty frigid, so bring a thick wetsuit or find a warm spot. You can join the crowds on the weekends at Pichidangui, Tongoy, Totoralillo, Balinearios Flamenco, Puerto Fino, Antofagasta, and LaPortada. The north coast, near Arica, has strong waves and warmer water. Tubes can be found further south near Iquique. Down south in La Serena there are good waves, but expect cold temperatures.

I don’t know if that’s any help, but I have used balsa and it broke on us many times. I’ve used red maple/ redwood and that works pretty good, but it’s not in Lowes/Home Depot. A friend got the wood for me and I don’t know where to get that around here, so are there any other light yet durable wood we could buy in Lowes/Home Depot?
I’m doing this for a MESA competition and what I wrote up there is the maximum stuff.
