I made 35 friends, since I had to ask people to take the pics of me (i.e. except at the Newport Sports Museum, where there was no one to be found on a Sunday afternoon).
I walked deep into the Orange County Park/Zoo area at night to get to the Chicago Cubs Mickey, since the office was closed. I don't recommend doing that though, because the walk is a little scary when it's dark.
I found a friendly mall cop in Orange, who let me into the mall after hours to take a picture.
I nearly killed myself in Anaheim, when the Hertz Never Lost told me to make a left, and I did - but it was a green light and not a green arrow. The Anaheim Police Officer, saw that I was sorry, and he let me go after he ran my license.
For the LA locations if you're smart, just pull into the valet of the hotels and tell them what you're there to do, and they probably won't make you pay for parking (i.e. I didn't have to).
If you have any specific questions about where the Mickeys are, comment me and I'll help you out.
Doing this hunt was a fun experience and I was able to see a lot of Southern California.
Huntington Beach <-- I couldn't find this on my Hertz map, so I lost time going back to it.
**** While in Hollywood, I got caught up in a Top Chef Tour Live taping and had the chance to see Eli Kirshtein and Hosea Rosenberg in action. It's no secret I like tall, bald guys ~ but microwave sponge cake... Who knew?!?!
Also, in Hollywood, I've decided that I'm ready for my star on the Walk of Fame, and evidently so is Hollywood! I was driving back from New Jersey a couple of weekends ago and my Iphone started playing Phil Collins. I heard "Groovy Kind of Love" and "Sussudio", and almost hurled my phone out of the window. Just saying...
I used to be a fan, I guess...
