It’s October in the Bay Area. All the fun outdoor events are scheduled for these few warm, sunny weekends. Fleet Week, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, the Treasure Island Music Festival and, for the first time in 17 years, an open house event at the NASA Ames Research Center.

Rob and I woke up before dawn to take BART to meet Trent and Ev in Burlingame. We arrived right before the gates opened and still faced a massive traffic jam. Worth it!
