Questions:

Because Delta didn't have companion ticket spots for any LA airports...or Vegas...or Phoenix....or San Diego, we had to fly into San Francisco. What is their airport's three letter code?

Click to Reveal Answer
SFO

After renting the car, we headed in to the city. While there, I knew of the existence of the "Painted Ladies," but did not think we'd find them. Well we stumbled on them and everywhere you looked, there were people snapping pics. What 80s/90s TV show's intro (and that of its spin-off) prominently features the "Painted Ladies?"

Click to Reveal Answer
Full House or Fuller House

After finding the Painted Ladies, I struggled to make my way to a certain stretch of a street in town because I had to see it. When I did, I could only drive 5MPH, the posted speed limit. What street was it?

Click to Reveal Answer
Lombard St. (I'll even take "The Crookedest Street in the World" if you can't remember its name).

After crossing over the Golden Gate Bridge, we headed to Sacramento to pick up another state capital and then head to LA. What Interstate did we take for this arduous 5 hour journey in the dark?

Click to Reveal Answer
I-5 ("the 5")

At 11pm PT, after leaving Atlanta at 830am ET, we arrived at our hotel, one block away from Greenleaf St. and a few miles away from Richard Nixon's HS and College Alma Maters. Name the town.

Click to Reveal Answer
Whittier

Speaking of Nixon, I had to pick his grave up again to continue my "Selfies with Dead Presidents" thing. In what city, his birthplace, is this grave located?

Click to Reveal Answer
Yorba Linda [In fact the grave is yard away from his birth house)

Happy New Year! We woke up and headed over to the Rose Parade, which had this actor as its Grand Marshall for 2018. While everyone on the route kept yelling out the name of his most famous character (and commenting on his legs), I had to be different and yell out "Ken Mattingly!" I corrected this when he was later seen at the coin toss.

Click to Reveal Answer
Gary Sinise [Ken Mattingly was his character in "Apollo 13"]

We planned our parade viewing/eating spot deliberately as we found a Chick-fil-A in Pasadena located on this street. There weren't many old ladies around that day.

Click to Reveal Answer
Colorado Blvd.

Ok so there was this minor football game that took place after the parade.You may have heard of it. I won't ask who played in it (GA-Oklahoma). I won't ask who scored the winning TD in OT (the first ever for the Rose Bowl) right in front of me (Sony Michel- remember that name) so I'll ask this: how many total points (1 point either way) were scored in the 2018 Rose Bowl, which shattered the (literal) previous record by 1?

Click to Reveal Answer
102 (101-103) [The 2017 Rose Bowl had 101 points]

On the way back to the hotel from the game, we got a flat tire, put on the spare, and had to switch cars at the Burbank Airport, which is officially named for this entertainer. Thrifty charged me $41 for flat tire damage. Thanks for that memory, Thrifty.

Click to Reveal Answer
Bob Hope

After getting a new car, we raced to the (rebooked) 1030am Sony Pictures Tour where I would finally step foot into Mecca: the Jeopardy! set (and hopefully not for the last time). Within 1 either way, what studio number designates this shrine to answers and questions?

Click to Reveal Answer
Studio 10 (9-11)

After leaving Sony, having a final double-double at In-N-Out, and getting my selfie with Ron and Nancy, we made our way to San Jose and then finally San Fran. If anyone ever asks if you know the way to San Jose from LA, you can answer it's this US Route. I never thought to play some Herb Alpert while on it.

Click to Reveal Answer
Route 101 ("the 101")
