Arrival

Edit: I posted this three days ago, but Google Maps URLs didn’t cooperate, so here it is, better late than never. Apologies for the technical difficulties.

We landed earlier today in Los Altos. I’ll be in a room in a four bedroom house here for about two weeks, doing a short commute to Apple starting on Monday, June 23. Then, it’s relocation to a room in a six-bedroom house in Woodside, further up I-280 from Apple. I’ve got that room from July 1st to mid-September.

Today was spent on The World’s Windiest Road, Rt. 1. Here’s the route on Rt. 1 and 128, but here’s a detail of Rt. 1 at the beginning. We had to stop twice for driver and passenger nausea.

We drove across the Golden Gate Bridge this afternoon as we headed towards Los Altos. Tomorrow morning, we head back north towards Wine Country. Monday will be spent tripping around San Fran, and Tuesday we have a tour of Alcatraz early in the morning, likely followed by another day in the city. Eric flies out of Oakland International on Wednesday morning, and I have a few days before starting work.

5600 miles from DC to San Francisco: certainly a more scenic route than usual.
