I'm driving cross country with some of my friends.


Sweet! Where are you going?


Right now, the plan is to drive from New Hampshire to Seattle right after we graduate. We're planning stops in Chicago, Milwaukee, South Dakota (Badlands), and somewhere in Montana on the way out, and then we're staying in Seattle for a little while. I'm not sure what we're doing on the way back. I want to convince my friends to go south a little bit also into California (I'd really like to go to LA...the only times I've been there have been to visit my aunt so I never got to do anything fun), but it's probably not going to happen.

Anybody know something cool to do in Montana? I was thinking of going to Missoula since that's where University of Montana is. I'd really like to see Glacier National Park, but it's a bit out of the way.

Yeah, Seattle is kind of a random choice, but the Pacific Northwest is the only area of the country I haven't been to, so it should be interesting. What fun stuff should I do when I get there?

Honestly, I can't really think of any recommendations. My idea of "fun" involves going hiking or camping somewhere, so I haven't really gotten to know the city that well.

Re: UVA Class of 2012--Ivy Gardens roommate?

About me: I'm originally from Illinois, have lived in New York City and Austin, and have two music degrees. In addition to singing and playing the piano, I also like to workout, play tennis, and kayak (I just kayaked all 300 miles of the Grand Canyon last month). I cook frequently, and hope to still have the time to do that while I'm a 1L. I'm a non-smoker, occasional drinker, and not religious. I would like the place to be relatively neat and quiet, but don't want to live with someone who's a neat freak, cause that's not me.

Let me know if any of this sounds promising!

BTW, for the poster that's going to the Pacific Northwest, I would go to Vancouver, Vancouver Island, and Portland. I would also check out the unbelievably beautiful town of Bellingham, WA, about halfway between Seattle and Vancouver. It's wedged between Mt. Baker and the San Juan Islands and is a really cool place.

Tim


+1, kayaking is awesome

UVa baseball kicks off the NCAA tournament regionals tonight at 7 PM EST. For those of you in or around Charlottesville, it's on ESPNU and Comcast Channel 37.

As if it didn't suck enough that we won the ACC Championship and didn't get a host spot, we got shipped out to California in a regional with #1 ranked UC Irvine and San Diego State. Tonight we get the pleasure of facing San Diego State's Stephen Strasburg, maybe the best pitching prospect in the country.

Can somebody repost the link to the available discounted software through UVA? I wanted to see if I could get Photoshop Elements or something similar without a 30 day trial.

I'm moving Monday so I can probably help you out. I am ordering most of my stuff online and going to Ikea but I'm still probably going to scope out all the local places. Plus, I never turn down an offer to go shopping!

I know what you mean, I've been buying a few things here and there but I have a list a mile long of stuff I want to pick up once I get to Cville. It's fun to get new things and decorate!
