It’s late afternoon on Wednesday February 6th as I type this. Amtrak’s Coast Starlight is cruising through the Cascade Range en route to Portland. The train is about five hours late due to a mishap en route. It’s no big deal, I don’t have to be home by a specific time tonight. And on the… Continue reading Bay Area Trip wrap up
The first few days of this Bay Area trip flew by. Thursday and Friday were occupied with "business": Representing Emee's event planning company for Visit Berkeley. For two days I was shuttled around with other folks to see various sites around this college town. It was good, but exhausting, days not ending until late. But… Continue reading San Francisco now
I boarded the southbound Amtrak Coast Starlight around 2 PM on Tuesday. Trains are my preferred method of travel when it's too far/long or maybe not the best season to bike. I've taken the train to the Bay Area for all of my teens trips, which always seem to happen in late winter. Winter is… Continue reading Bay Area Trip: A day in.
Hello friends. For those of you who think I "travel all the time", well, maybe you're right! Tomorrow, Tuesday January 29th 2019, I will be heading off to the Bay Area for a week! And this is mostly a "work" trip where I'll be representing Emee's biz (EJP Events) at a function in Berkeley. But… Continue reading Bay Area Trip Jan 29-Feb 6 2019
Most of you probably noticed that when I went down to the Bay Area at the end of January I brought my trusty Bridgestone XO-3 with me. I'm that bike crazy that not only do I like having a bike with me wherever I go (as it's the best way to explore a place), but… Continue reading Bringing bikes when traveling: The Quandary
I flew back from Oakland on Wednesday. Flew back, yep. This is weird because I hadn't flown in 14 years and am not really into flying. But logistics dictated flying back, otherwise my time in the Bay Area would have been shorter than it already was. Anyways, in the coming week I'm going to write… Continue reading Back from the Bay.
It was a mostly fun three day experience, and I got to do a lot and see some cool folk. (Unfortunately never got a chance to hang out with The Peach.) And I didn't let a little cold slow me down. While it would be nice to have a bit more time, there are some… Continue reading Goodbye, Bay Area.
It feels like another lifetime, but I used to live in that house in the middle, albeit very briefly. It was my first Bay Area residence, from August to September, 2000. I moved out so fast because my crazy roommate squandered the rent money for her "personal needs." I didn't spend much more time in… Continue reading 460 49th Street, Oakland California.
