The Final Pre-Scooter Weekend

May 10th, 2010. Categories / San Francisco

Freelance came to an end on Friday, and there’s a little downtime before my new full-time job starts. What better way to make the most of it than to buy a new, high-powered Vespa 250 GTS and tool around town looking for a place to live? Answer: There is no better way. But this post isn’t about scooters. I just got it today, but the following photos are from the sad, safe, and slow-moving “Pre-Scooter Era.”

If a tree falls on Hayes, and no one is around to hear it, does it take down the bus line?

It was a great weekend on foot and bus. Ten miles hiking, good lunches, snacks and wonderful views. Unfortunately, all the blooming things have given me an allergy head cold.
