Hello All,

Here’s to a most excellent Memorial Day.

A little extra time to relax, to reflect, to stoke … These long weekends offer a welcome rest to the frantic pace that we keep. And what better way to enjoy all of this than an adventure in the city I love.

So these dudes swung by Pixar on Friday.

And we rolled over to one of Danch’s wine tasting events that evening.

What a joy. Danch. Hungarian wines. Stories.

It doesn’t get much better than this.

Got up early on Saturday morning and charged 64 miles around Marin with this character.

The trek was massive!

We charged Alpine Dam up to the Seven Sisters and climbed over 5,000 feet that morning.

Gaaaaawwwww!

And Strava.

So Peter and Palmtree and I summit and I cruising seven sisters.

Every so often they wait for me to catch them as they are both friggin mountain goats when it comes to hill climbing. Sheeesh I gotta get that cardio up!

Okay … So there they are waiting, when suddenly some dude straight up paraglides right off the cliff in front of us. It was ridiculous. Stinson beach in the background. A glorious California sun. A perfect bike ride. And then this dude just floating there like 20 yards from the road.

Stoking!

My new cycling crew is helping me push it to the next level in a most excellent way.

Lets stay after it.

I finished reading ‘World War Z’ this weekend and while walking through the Mission on Friday met these folks.

What?!?!

… They were just on their way to some zombie party or something … but seriously the book was really affecting me and to see this … whew … good thing I was drunk.

Speaking of drinking!

Hit up the 500 Club with the homeys.

(Also, thank you new Picasa feature that auto gifs photo sequences.)

On Sunday Morning my Mom and Step Dad Greg came down to the bay for a screening of Monsters University.

Add the housemates to the mix and we had a very chill afternoon.

And that brings our story to today.

Went on a glorious 8.4 mile city hike.

Di and I just started walking and ended up doing a fairly epic loop.

What a wonderful way to spend a day off.

Life is good.

After 2+ years of living in SF it was finally time to get the fellow blogger on a trolley.

We hopped on the CA line and rode up and over Nob Hill.

Awesome.

We were on a total city hike.

Just meandering and being silly.

And in spite of this mist / rain thing that was coming down, these dudes hit us up in the SOMA and adventured the whole afternoon alongside our quirked out trip around the city. Love it.

Silly level 11.

So that is that.

72 hours. Fun. Family. Friends.

Here’s to a wonderful weekend.

Stay excellent.
