You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Some Local Taste

Now that I’m in California there was one stop that was first on the list, In ‘n’ Out Burger. I think I’m convinced that it’s the best fast food burger joint in the country. The menu is easy and simple, it’s got character, and it’s just a little different (and better) than McDonald’s and Burger King.
From there Bill gave me a driving tour of some of the area such as the great shopping areas and the Winchester House, which is quite fantastic. I think one day I’ll have a house with similar features. It’s fun and out of the ordinary.
Well there is one thing I forgot that’s in the area, Silicon Valley. It has the headquarters of nearly every tech company and software company out there. Just to mention a few I saw the headquarters for Adobe, Symantec, eBay, and of course my favorite Apple Computers. It’d be pretty cool working in the area for a huge booming company. Of course there were many downfalls too with the big crash. Silicon Valley is a pretty cool spot, and how can you go wrong with addresses like 1 Infinite Loop.
From there we checked out the Stanford University in Palo Alto. And wow! What a stunning campus, but in a much different way from Michigan State. It’s the architecture at Stanford that blows me away. It’s beautiful. However, Stanford just doesn’t have the greens that MSU has, and a river flowing through the center of campus as well. Then again, it’s pretty nice to be on campus in 70 degree weather half way through November. I don’t recall that happening too often at MSU.
