Going home

Thanks to dirt cheap tickets from Oslo to Los Angeles next summer($650!), I'm going to my ideological home again. Most of the six weeks I'm in the US will be spent on the west coast, with adventures in California, Oregon and Washington - possibly also in Idaho. The last 2,5 weeks will be devoted to an epic road trip with my San Diego friends, but most of the first 3,5 weeks are still open. So iffin you have any hints or tips, holler at me in the comments!
