    I'm jealous!
    I wish I were able to be there, although I do have photographs of the house taken in 1979 from Valentino's house.

    It's definitely on my list of things to save for! I'm gonna see Winchester house on the same trip, too. And Donner Pass. May be the only time I get to California.
    Just drink lots of Kool-Aid, and take one of these blue pills three times a day.

    I would LOVE to do the Helter Skelter tour too, but unfortunately I won't be in LA in October when it is happening. I will be there in later October and have already booked the main tour.

    I doubt I'll ever be able to save enough to go on the tour, but Scott if you come to WA, you can take over the crappy tour I went on in Seattle. That would SOOOO rock!

    Hey Laura Between Donner Pass, The Winchester House and Scotts Tour be sure and stop in at Hearst Castle. If your headed down Highway 1 from the Winchester House through Monterey and Carmel, stop at the Nenphente Resturant and enjoy something to eat out on their deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean. What a wonderful place. Absolutely gorgeous. Orson Wells bought it for new bride, Rita Hayworth in the 1940's when it was a hunting lodge. When they got divorced he sold it to the people that have it now and they made it into a very successful Resturant. Luckily it survived the recent fires. From there it is a fantastic drive right down to Hearst Castle, then on through the Santa Barbara Area. Then on Down for Scotts Tour! I'm hoping to go on that this year myself.

    Went on Scott's tour last October, and we're going again this October. We plan on making it an annual event...though Scott I wish your Helter Skelter tours ran year-round/more frequently? We can never seem to squeeze into the schedule for that one, and I want to do it--BAD.

    If you give me enough notice, I might be able to open a Helter Skelter tour. They do run all year round.

    Heh. I have a friend doing the general tour with me in Oct. However, if she didn't want to do it, I would still do the tour by myself. There is no way I can be in San Diego and not go by LA at least to do this tour. Who knows if I will ever be in CA again.

    You both look great! Glad you had a great time!
    If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague.

    Back from LA

    Just got back from my trip to San Diego and Los Angeles, the later where, of course, I took the tour. There are just not enough words to express how much I enjoyed Scott's tour, by far the highlight of my trip.

    Over three hours, riding in comfort in the van (the temps were in the 90s that day), and soaking up all kinds of sordid information (THE BEST KIND). Really it's the best $35 I have ever spent. Even my non-Death Hag friends really enjoyed it.

    The highlights...

    Scott actually leading a group of us into the men's bathroom at the park where George Michaels was arrested, to explain what went down... lol

    Seeing where the Grease finale was filmed (that field looks so much smaller than I expected)....

    Seeing the LaBianca house (not as isolated as I expected, it's strange to think how they picked that particular home)

    and seeing all sorts of other things...Janice Joplin's death location, Menendez house, Halloween house (Scott said if he owned the home he would spent all day wearing a Michael Myers mask, popping up from behind the shrubs, scaring the passersby) *snicker*

    Two major regrets I have is not being there at the right time to take the Helter Skelter tour and while I was touring Hollywood the last day (my travel mates left the night before), not having the proper info to go find Robert Lee's murder house... (this is prob. the story I am most fascinated with on FAD). Anyhow, I did find the wall on Melrose outside Paramount where psycho meth-guy was arrested. I shall have to suffer gladly.

    I got some pics, but have to develop. My digital was wonking out on this trip. :P

    Glad to be back. Much catching up to do.

I have said on earlier posts that I was always out numbered when it came to a vote to go on the tour? I can't wait to meet Scott(finally)and see some of the sites? I will take lots of pics and ask lots of questions.

    Hey Georgiaguy!

    You will have a blast. I could do nothing in LA, but take Scott's tours and be happy. I look forward to hearing what you think and what made the most impression on you.

    Everyone who has taken the tour, feel free to share your favorite highlights. I hope to take more in the future, maybe Helter Skelter, though it will be awhile before I get to that side of US again.

    I love that the tour has a cozy, intimate (no, not like that :P) feel. *snork* Only 12 or 13 at a time and you get to ask questions. I wish Scott all the business he can handle, but I hope the number of people per tour stays at this amount. But the word has got to be getting out that this is the BEST tour in LA. I have never taken a tour where I have learned so much.

    BTW, all the Scientology buildings are kinda... err... eerie.

    In the last several years have taken 2 of Scott's regular tours and the Helter Skelter tour. Enjoyed every minute of all the tours but especially liked the Helter Skelter tour. Have lived my whole life in Southern Calif. and to see the actual places I've read about for years is incredible!
