The Thrashers have released their schedule for 2010-11 après Jesus. Hooray!
Looks like we're renewing the timeless tradition of opening at home against the Washington Capitals. And then the team plays in Tampa Bay. Then they jet off for a three-city (well, two, really) voyage of discovery in California.
"Oh, awesome," you might think, "an opportunity to go on my long-planned, forever-postponed hockey road trip in California, with detours into Venice Beach bookshops and Paso Robles wineries and visits with regal elephant seals at Monterey!"
It seems that way at first, but then you notice the confoundedest thing: the Thrashers play the Kings on October 12th and the Ducks on October 15. "More time to spend in the L.A. area," one thinks.
But wait. The Thrashers then play the Sharks on October 16. Hardly any time for a leisurely drive up Highway 1!
Unless, of course, you skip the Ducks game. Go see them play the Kings, hang out in L.A. for a bit, then head up the coast to San Jose. Four days is enough time to see some elephant seals.
Thank you for reading this week's edition of TBC Travel Planner, and you're welcome.
