    3500 miles, 3 days, 1 baseball game

    I left Charlotte, NC Friday evening and flew to San Francisco for the weekend. Had a layover Friday and Sunday in Dallas. What an experience!
    I have never flown before and although I had to pretend I was on a loud bus for most of the trips I did look out the window 3 or 4 times.

    San Francisco was very different. The people were nice but it was very crowded. We rode the trolly and if the plane ride was as rough as it was then I would not have made it. The city was quite beautiful even with the large homeless population.

    I wanted to tour Alcatraz but you needed to book reservations a couple of weeks in advance and this was a spur of the moment trip. We did see the LA Dodgers and the SF Giants game and we had tickets behind 1st base on the lower level about 15 rows up.

    I did get stopped by a parking enforcement officer at the SF airport for taking a picture of a SFPD crusier parked out front. He told me I had to have the officer's permission to take pictures of his car

    Sounds like you had fun! Did the progressive politics rub off on you a little bit?

    No I kept the photo. Once he heard my accent he figured out I wasn't a terrorist. Plus I showed him my badge.

    Politics are wierd there........I mean look at there Governor. But I would bet that Obama will carry Cal.

    I get to go back to San Diego for a week in November.

    I would have told the meter maid to jam it up his ass. You used a lot of "we's," so, who did you go with?

    My girlfriend, a buddy that works as a deputy in the next county, and a girl that he is dating (and paid for the trip)

    SF is a nice place to visit but I sure as hell wouldn't want to live there

    Yes the politics are very strange in SF. Mayor Newsom is another idiot, just like Pelosi. Swartzenegger is not as bad as some but I think its kind of wierd for a Republican to be married to a Democrat. A damned site better than Gray Davis. As far as Obama carrying this state, Oh God I hope not. Damned population centers.

    I think you will find that San Diego is much different from San Francisco. Very Conservative. in my opinion. Very much pro military, too. The only problem with San Diego is that it is too close to Mexico.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
