Electoral College Blowout

Besides sitting in the comfy Untied EconomyPlus seatshad a many hour layover at San Francisco yesterday. Made the best of it by hoping the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit system) from SFO to the Embarcadero, near the Ferry Building and the Bay Bridge

Neither Beijing nor South Dakota

It wasn’t a typical travel day, chilly, overcast, and a bit wet. But it actually felt great. Had breakfast sandwiches and coffee inside, while reading the San Francisco Chronicle. Briefly walked near the Bay to take some photos, but the ambiance is hard to capture in a moment.

The reason for the trip was not just to avoid living in the airport, but to add another state to my Electoral Vote total. Now that I’ve been in non-airport California, I get to add the Bear Flag Republic to my total. Additionally, Mother of tdaxp informed me that I stayed in both Tennessee and Alabama as an infant. This brings me up to 359 Electoral Votes — a blowout by any measure.
