Back to bringing you up to speed with my vacation. The second half of my two weeks off I spent at my Dad's house up in the foothills of Northern California. To get there I rented a car from the airport and made my way three hours Northeast.
If you are ever flying into SFO and thinking of renting a car I would highly warn you against renting from Fox Rentals. Sure they had the cheapest rate but this meant waiting an hour in line and then finding out you get charged for every little fee and that their insurance is expensive. My advice would be to figure out a way to rent off site from the airport as that is usually cheaper.
However, the airline I flew to get around America was amazing! I flew Virgin America, which although you have to pay for checked-in baggage was very comfortable. The seats are leather and there is plenty of leg room. You get a video screen in front of you, where you can watch movies (for a price) and even order your lunch. Again here you have to pay for the food, but it was delicious and tasty. I didn't mind paying $7 since that is what I would have paid anyways inside the airport. Below is a view of the "picnic" style lunch I chose.
Back at my dad's I rested and my trip started to feel like it was slowing down. I checked out my dad's garden which went through a lot of upgrades since last year.
Oh by the way, the car I rented for using in California came from Arizona. haha
