My special lady friend got this afore I did:

I’m a little slow on the uptake sometimes…

Using Your Car to Show How You’re Better Than Others in Frisco, Chapter LCVII: “5GENBAY”

Monday, June 5th, 2017

If this Lexus could talk, it would tell you how it was BORN AND RAISED in Frisco no doubt.

(And not only did you somehow choose where to be born simply by being born, you’ve also taken care to see that ALL your grandparents, great grandparents and great great grandparents did so as well. Congrats.)

Adieu, 5th Generation Bay Aryan…

What Happens to You When You Fly a Drone in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area – Video – Cited on Mt. Tam

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Start at 7:00 and finish at 9:00, so as to avoid a couple instances of the B-word, one more offensive than the other:

(I think the fine is just $125.)

But if you want to make a car commercial, well, I bet that you just might be able to get a permit and then you can fly to your heart’s content.

Jurassic Park Muir Woods: Nedry’s Crash on the Way to the East Dock Re-Enacted on Muir Woods Drive

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Or, Only In Marin.

InGen featured prominently on this RAV4:

7J7C2288 copy

Seems an attempt was made to extricate, but it failed. This could be the denouement of an ill-fated three point turn. Note that other drivers took advantage of some prime parking space with a quickness:

7J7C2287 copy

Apparently, drivers rejected from the normal parking lots of Muir Woods National Monument fall off of the flat part of Muir Woods Road like every day. These occupants here just wanted to turn around, too bad.

Calling for a tow involves hiking to the main gate, one assumes, as cell phone service is spotty at best. (I’m thinking AT&T would have the best chance of attaining one bar, based upon what people I know have experienced.)

BTW, Nedry is nerdy backwards

Five Adorable Grey Fox Babies Under the Boardwalk of Muir Woods Natl. Mnmt. are Creating a Stir

Monday, May 22nd, 2017

Just like last year.

One of the playful kits:

And here’s the stir:

7J7C2309 copy

Annual membership MWNP / MWNM is just $40 (which gets four in at any time for a whole year), but I shan’t renew as the feds are fed up with all the people here, so a privately-operated for-profit parking system is a-coming. (I wasn’t aware that it was so bad to park next to the creek.) Anywho, there are a lot of ways to get in an around Muir Woods without getting in a traffic jam, waiting for parking, or, far that matter, paying any fees at all.

Basically, the toll gate at the main entrance is only for inbound travelers and there are a lot of other entrances.

Anyway, they want fewer people/tourists milling about the main entrance / gift shop, and that’s what they’ll get. I’ll see you all as I exit through the gift shop.

Take the “Rapha Rides” Challenge: Just Try to ID all These Frisco Bike Ride Spots in This Short HD Video

Monday, May 15th, 2017

Here’s your well-produced San Francisco / Marin video from (bicycle-oriented cafe?) Rapha

…and here’s your annotated (corrections/additions welcomed, or rather, not unwelcomed) cheatsheet:

0:46 Mamiya 7 II rangefinder film camera

0:51 24th Street near De Haro (Road bike going up and down a cobblestone block, just saying)

0:52 East Bay hills, sunrise

1:06 Former Pacific Stock Exchange building, Pine Street

1:11 Fil-Fil area (Filbert and Fillmore), taken from the site of that former Real Foods what used to advertise “WE ACCEPT FOOD STAMPS” in tony Cow Hollow

1:15 Some kind of anonymous reddish-orange bridge – research required

1:18 Potrero? Like where they filmed Bullitt? IDK

1:26 Vallejo and Fillmore

1:27 Broadway Tunnel, eastbound, dangerous without a camera car pacing you

1:28 C-town, distinctive brick building, but I don’t know it, south side (no satellite dishes seen) of Pacific if I had to guess

1:31 Washington at Grant

1:33 More Chinatown – Stockton?

1:38 13th Street under the I-80, home of appointed Mayor Ed Lee’s Superbowl (Tent) City, 2015-2016

1:39 Back to C-Town – Trenton Alley facing the massive Ping Yuen housing project, Chinatown’s big PJ’s.

1:40 Buffalo Paddock, Golden Gate Park, or Bison, I guess that’s we call them these days

1:41 Columbus approaching Broadway, with basically zero northbound traffic and plenty o’ parking available, unusual

1:45 Folsom at 3rd, also a bit dangerous in that lane without a camera car

1:49 No, I’ve never heard of the “Anchor Steam Ride,” a name you yourself made up?

1:56 La Mision y La Curva De Hospital General

1:57 The Financh featuring Salesforce Tower

2:01 Marin Headlands, winter

2:03 Conzelman Road

2:04 Conzelman Road

2:07 Conzelman Road

2:08 Bunker Road

2:09 Baker-Berry Tunnel

2:17 Conzelman Road

2:20 Conzelman Road

2:22 The Skatin’ Place (formerly 6th Avenue at JFK) Golden Gate Park

2:28 22nd at Carolina

2:32 Marin County snail

2:35 Marin County, winter?

2:41 More Folsom, ‘neath the Fremont Street offramp, prolly should be pedaling that far outside of the nearby bike lane, if only to make all the harried Mercedes drivers happy

2:43 Haight and Pierce (but arguably the Wiggle is nothing but one continuous grade and I don’t think “people set up” this “thing,” it’s just how a creek used to flow southwest on a grid what basically runs east and west, and if you continue on to Market well _there’s_ your hill, in the Laguna, Octavia area)

2:48 15th and S. Van Ness (Wow, 15th is down to one lane here – news to me)

2:50 16th and Mission

I’ll remind myself to check out the other 19 cities similarly video’ed…

And oh, this (you should try showing up to these roadie-oriented meet-ups next month on a fatbike with an electric mid-mount Bosch motor, you know, like a Felt Lebowsk-e, you know, just to see how appalled they’d be) is what they are promoting:
