Today's Location: [Santa Barbara]

Our graticule (latitude 34, longitude -119) contains a lot of water, and a lot of very remote area in the Los Padres National Forest. But eventually, we should get lucky, and land on the beach, so let's keep looking!

  • 2008-06-15 -- Today's location looks like an orchard on private property. Too bad, because it is pretty close to Santa Barbara, and not out to sea. --Pconrad

[edit] Other comments that have been posted

- I've got myself and another watching it. If it's close enough, we might be able to make the trip. (2008-06-09 was on Santa Cruz Island, anyone attempt?)

- My husband and I live in the area as well. Today's (6-11-08) isn't too bad but jobs prevent wandering around outside all day. Guess we will have to see what Saturday brings! --erife
