Itinerary | whirlwindweek

So pretty much the day after finishing the skid plate…

I park and fly out for a week to San Francisco and New Orleans for a work research trip.

Day 1 SF… we did a bit of shopping… I bought a Mulholland Angler’s messenger bag.
and ended up in this fishing shop… I do like the colours of the lures… A component on some
of the pieces made by friends at Crocodile Tears.

See that sun… that was just about the last of it… the 2 days following was full of wind and rain.

Up in Haight St… I would love to do an expedition in that… well maybe with a set of Recaros.

What is this??? it has to be at least.. 2 x bigger.

Can you imagine 50 years down the road… I could see myself owning something like this..

SF Day 2 – Fatlace in jpntwn… I do want to get one of those pray for japan stickers.

Rightfully parked outside the store.

After that we headed over the golden gate bridge and ended up by the docks…
i like the camo pattern going on between the rust and moss.

Zee bridge.

I forgot to note… today is the day  I left my sd card in my laptop…
i had about 10 shots worth in the internal memory… so I had to use them wisely.

I don’t recall ever seeing a lit sewer drain…

Wow… Altima Donk!

Ah… Much better… Benz wagon on lm’s… yessir.

Day 4 – New Orleans… I’m glad we decided to come here as a group…
the vibe of this city is unlike any other I’ve been to.

I was alive… 24/7… we got there on a Sunday… and pretty much went to sleep round 2:30 – 3 am every night.

Music… food… culture… art… fun… it’s all here.

Need to recite a drunken poem at 3am?… check.

Nola Day 2 – Willie Mae’s Fried Chicken… it was delicious.   I had pretty much everything.

A view from the river in…

The train goes through the city.


Started the day off just walking around…

then headed off to a swamp tour…

sweet bridge…

and swamp trees…

It’s crazy to think that these houses were under water when Katrina hit.

Ended our night off at NOLA… Chef Emeril Lagasse’s Restaurant… thanks for the tip Scott!


  1. I love all of your pictures!

    First of all…
    I could see you owning a Robert’s Hardware store too!
    Next – I would break that motor bike if I sat on it.
    Only one of my ass cheeks could fit on that seat.
    FOR REALZ!!!

    I really like that shot of the traffic between the poles of the bridge
    I would definitely have paid money for a poem to be written to me at the wee hours of the night

    As for gator crossing….Yikes!


    going to bed


    What the hell is an Altima Donk?
    YEp – I will google it beyotch!
