So I took a week off to go to San Francisco in the Tripacer with Dylan....


Day 1 Day 1

We left Houston Saturday morning, hoping to make El Paso by sunset. We flew EYQ-ERV-FST-T27, getting to T27 in plenty of time before the drag races started...
Day 2 Day 2

We made it from T27 to Casa Grande (CGZ) to Thermal, CA (TRM). Thermal (in the picture) was hot - it's 114 ft below sea level, and the temp was about 110F. It was miserable. Then, we headed for LA - VNY, where a friend of mine is a flight instructor. Taxiing to parking, we lost the brakes...
Day 3 Day 3

....so we spent the first half of the day taking the brakes apart. It turned out that the rubber diaphragm in the master cylinder had a tear in it - luckily, we found a geezer A&P who happened to have one in his hanger, brand new, dated 1969! We replaced it, hopped up to Fresno for lunch with someone else we knew, and made Oakland by the end of the day. Oakland is way more laid back then SFO - it would have been a breeze if we hadn't been landing into the sun at sunset.
Today... Today...

We wandered down to Fisherman's Wharf, did a bike ride over the Golden Gate bridge, and just generally hung out in SF. I forgot how tiring sight-seeing could be.

No, just time off work. I typically go to Houston for my vacations.

Great pictures! I would love to go flying with you. I know what you mean about sight seeing being exhausting.

You should email me a phone #. I would have called you when we were in Van Neyes (sp?) for the night - we had a car, and I could have come done coffee or something. tina@tripacerdriver.com

I was so thinking about you when we were having noodles last night. And I'm so going to be thinking about you again when I go have noodles again tonight, and maybe hit Lush while I'm out...

(I know, I'm a bitch. :)

Re: *sigh*

Envious. You mean envious. They aren't really synonyms.

Thus ends Tina's pedantic rant for the day.

Dinner with me and Dylan when he gets back?

are you in the area, or are you in LA?
skywhisperer From: skywhisperer Date: August 5th, 2005 12:36 am (UTC) (Link)
Never mind. Should have checked your userinfo first. :) Wonder why I thought you were out here?

Probably the earnestness of my post. :)

Or my upcoming trip to Vegas with aemilia_parker.

Hope you're having a great time.
