We were feeling the cabin fever last week (April 30) and escaped to Davis (about 100 miles north of here) for a short walk around the University of California campus and a take-out lunch.

BREAKING NEWS : Our granddaughter Miranda just chose UC Davis to finish out the last years of her degree in computer science. Yay, Miranda!

Tips for travelers:

  • Enjoy the lack of traffic while it lasts: We left at 8:00 am and drove at 70 mph the whole way – unheard of in “normal” times during the morning rush hour
  • Locate (if you can) available bathrooms before leaving home – they are few and far between
  • Wear old clothes, because you’ll be sure to spill take-out food on your shirt while “dining” in the back seat of your car
