1st Ticket for the 1st Game

1st Ticket for the 1st Game

So I’ve finally set a firm date to depart on my long journey: Monday, April 9th.  I’ve moved out of my apartment, put most of my possesions in storage and bought a mini-van from a friend.

The plan so far is to leave Seattle on the 9th, stop for the night in Portland and then drive to northern California the next day. I’m looking forward to traveling through and hopefully camping in the Redwood National Forest before crossing the Golden Gate Bridge on my approach into San Francisco for the first two ballgames.

The first game I’ll be attending will be in Oakland on the 11th of April.  I’m still trying to figure out which Giants game I’ll hit, as it turns out, their home openner is on the 13th and tickets are really expensive that day.  Most likely, I’ll opt for the game on the 14th instead but will have to bomb down to Los Angeles to make a 1pm Dodgers game the very next day.
