The view from Cerro Alto. Pretty darn high!

The view from Cerro Alto. Pretty darn high!

What I Learned

  • Oh, I learned an awful lot about buying cars. Call around for quotes. Don’t be upsold. Don’t budge on what you want. Figure out exactly what you need before you walk on the lot. Watch for insane APR deals if you’re financing. And be nice! I really do believe that salespeople are more open to helping out nice (but firm!) folks…but maybe that’s just being a Pollyanna and they’ll completely use you. It could go either way.
  • I also discovered that Cerro Alto is the best hike on the California Central Coast. For reals. It’s about a three mile hike up one of the tallest mountains in the county, and it has views of the Pacific Ocean on one side and all the green hills on the other. It has a fairly strong ascent, so you feel like you’re definitely working out, but it’s never punishing enough to not be enjoyable. Plus, there are all sorts of amazing smelling sage and kind of scary giant lizards. Go to it, everyone!
  • Only in Dubai. People have been escaping the huge loans they’ve built up in that crazy country, and they have been leaving behind their abandoned Ferraris. Now they’re cluttering up the place. What a weird problem.
