Moving to NYC

12 Dec

San Francisco is a great city and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here.  Time for something different, however.  I am moving to New York City in January.  I will be leaving San Francisco on Thursday afternoon and spending some time traveling between now and January 26th, when I head to NYC.  Good bye SF, it was fun.

Road trip to Texas

16 Nov

Tomorrow morning I am leaving for Texas. When I drove from Texas to San Francisco in January of 2007 I said to myself I would never do it again, but in today’s world I guess never < 2 years. Going to take a bit of scenic route this time. Here is the map. It breaks down as follows:

Day 1: San Francisco, CA to Pismo Beach, CA (via Hwy 1)

Day 2: Pismo Beach, CA to Grand Canyon, AZ

Day 3: Grand Canyon, AZ to Albuquerque, NM

Day 4: Albuquerque, NM to Lubbock, TX

Day 5: Lubbock, TX to Houston, TX

Day 6: Houston, TX to San Antonio, TX

Total trip is 2383 miles. Will try to post some pictures along the way.

King of Wii

25 Jan

We had a friendly Wii tennis tourney today. Matt won although I think there may have been some hanging chads involved. As a tribute to his victory, I have included the photo below.

Lovin some Coke

Worst policy…ever

14 Oct

I’m sitting on a plane heading to NYC. In front of me there are 16 empty rows. Behind me there is maybe 1 empty seat. United won’t let anyone move up unless they pay a $54 upgrade. No wonder this airline doesn’t make any money – what a dumb move.


Lesson learned

14 Oct

If you have a middle name, use it when booking air travel. It could save you hassle and a trip to the FBI watch list.
