(1) Sat Sep 10 2005 13:56 Travel time: My friend Toni and I decided to take a weekend trip and drive the San Francisco. first of all I have never drived past the salt flats and that was an amazing amount of art. We stayed in Reno Friday night, and feared for our lives because it is such a trashy city. Then we drove to SanFran, andhad a great time driving around and around the city. We stayed with Uncle Leonard, and Jeff at their house, and had a wonderful dinner at this nice Chinese resturant, where Jeff taight me how to appropriatly use chopsticks. We went to the Bay area singles branch, and I learned to be grateful for the incredible student ward I have at Utah State. The we had the pleasure of watching the Yankees beat the A's in Oakland. how can a game be bad, that begins with Derek Jeter hitting a home run on the first pitch!?! Then Toni and I made the incredibly long drive home on Monday (ok so it is only 12 hours, but those dang salt flats make it seem like forever.) It was a fun time, but now I am broke...We don't even know how much gas cost total, we didn't want to add it up. The most we paid was $3.23 and we only filled half a tank on that price.

You are brave driving around SF... Well we did a bit of driving as well, but my friend Christina & I mostly were turned loose on the Muni... Of course we ended up getting lost in the middle of the night and having to call a taxi, so maybe bravery is worth it after all. It is only the parking that scares me.
