|Summer travel plans. What are yours?

Fall comes early this year
Let me know, especially if we might be crossing paths! I'm down for meeting up, hanging out, hitchhiking together, trading food/gas money/pins/records/good conversation/bad jokes for rides if you're driving anywhere I want to go, trading a place to crash in your town for hospitality in mine, rad shows, late night adventures, making out in (semi) public places, kickball games, hanging out on beaches, in forests, on/under bridges, and everything else I've wanted to spend my summers doing for years.
May/June: fly to the Bay Area on/over Memorial Day (weekend). Hang out for a week or so (any Warm Water Cove shows around that time???), eat at Guadalajara's in Oakland every day I'm there), then make my way up the coast. Once I hit WA: Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia (yes I know it's out of order), then get a ride to Bellingham and Vancouver. Make my way east from Van over the course of two weeks, not sure which side of the border I'll take. Rides seem easier to come by on the Canadian side, but I can also afford a Greyhound Discover Pass. Visit friends along the way and explore places that seem interesting (Chicago? Grand Rapids?), get back to the DC area in time for No Way Fest, stay a week, and leave after CLITfest and the Life Trap show in DC.
July: Head to Florida: Miami, Tampa, Orlando. Make my way north in time to see a kickass weekend of shows in Pittsburgh July 13th-14th (The Pist reunion, Annihilation Time, countless others). Maybe stop off in DC for a few days in between, maybe not. Toronto at some point in the second half of July (Christina, any ideas for when I should come up? Or would August be better?), I want to hang out in Cleveland and Pittsburgh the rest of the time, then back to DC for the last weekend in July.
August: not sure yet. I do know I want to go camping if I don't beforehand because it has been probably a decade since my last time. My only plans are Best Friends Day, Thrash Fest in Chicago if it happens, catching Deadfall and Regulations in several cities, and deciding if I want to stay in DC, move to SF, or move somewhere else come fall or New Years 2008. I'm slowly starting to feel more at home in DC, so we'll see.
