Drove up to the Bay Area today. Google Maps said it would only take 7.5 hours. It took about a third of that time to clear LA traffic. I didn’t really mind since I have more than enough HPMoR Podcast to make the roundtrip. I’m pretty sure the only way to make the Google Maps ETA is to drive above the speed limit, and I collected enough empirical evidence to conclude that driving 75mph is a waste of gas. Also, someone really wants to tomatoes in San Francisco as I passed half a dozen double trailers piled high with them.
Met up with Franklin and Arendse and Danny in SF. Grabbed some Indian food and played Cartagena a couple times. Interesting game. Would like to collect data to develop a heuristic for good play. Then it was back on the road to Ted and Pamela’s.
