Yesterday I had lunch in San Francisco

I usually don't eat there since it can be expensive and parking can be a bitch but my friend and I went ahead and ate there. We ate at "Wesburger n' more" on Mission St between 18th and 19th streets. It was $11 for the All American Burger and it wasn't big or anything, but did come with tater tots.

And when leaving, we drove up Mission to 1st street and then got on the Bay Bridge on ramp. That entrance has about 8 streets all trying to get on so it took awhile just going 3 blocks to get on the on ramp. You have to be patient, but aggressive when driving in the Bay Area. This was also my first time using Fastrack. I had just signed up last week and wanted to use it just for the hell of it. Used it coming into the city on the Bay Bridge, and leaving at the Carquinez Bridge by Vallejo. It is nice to just drive through instead of stopping at the toll booth.

I think San Francisco is such a beautiful city but it can be stressful driving around there. I should just use BART and MUNI to get around as the mass transit there is excellent, but I couldn't help but to drive this time.

1. Don't forget to curb your wheels if you park on one of the hills.

It's tough with a stick shift.

2. I live in the city and avoid driving downtown like the plague only go down market to fell street

My husband's makes me drive if we go downtown because I know my way around. He says it's so crazy that it raises his blood pressure. I grew up here and it has gotten worst in my lifetime. Otherwise I take muni downtown. I live off of 280 freeway so the traffics not so bad. But if you live in the burbs and come here it is so intimidating.

3. Wyoming probably has reasonable prices on everything.

You know why?

Because nobody lives there.

I'll pay the increased COL if it means I don't have to rub shoulders with rednecks, yahoos, and hayseeds.

9. LOL I have to agree.

When my family asks why I prefer Northern Cal over Arizona, (I grew up in Arizona) I just bite my tongue and tell them that they don't have enough Marijuana dispensaries.

7. I live in Sacramento

But go to the Bay Area a lot, mostly to Oakland to see my step son. When I go to the peninsula, I usually just cross the bridge and get on either 280 or 101, mostly because I go south to San Mateo county. I don't go through the streets of SF too often.
