It always drove me a bit nuts when my dad would go on about going "Baaack East." Well, I finally am, and so thankful for the rest that awaits. The Texan and Northern Cal travels were, well, exhausting (though the San Francisco near-sweater weather was beyond a treat). But I did have a couple hours (laden with luggage) to swing by the Mission before catching the red eye back. Was lucky enough to catch this guy flying down Valencia in this amazing toy, complete with leather straps! If one is to drive a vintage convertible around San Francisco without a helmet, the second best thing is to carve a helmet (and a chin strap!) shape out of your hair.
