Moving back to San Francisco :)

As some of you know or don't know me and mrs bdb moved from san francisco to boston this past november for a bunch of different reasons.

So now that we realise what one of us needed to find out by doing something we are moving back to the bay area, and San Francisco.

I'll be back in SF on Sunday, and then over Labor day weekend I will fly to Boston get mrs bdb load some stuff in the car and take her back to SF.

Of course the sucky part is packing/moving and trying to sell a condo we owned for less than 9 months.

But I can't wait to be back in SF again.

I am lucky in that I kept my job, I just worked out of the boston office, and in moving back I am still keeping my job.

Yay 'Frisco

Tourist.

Welcome back. Everything is still as F'd up as it was when you left, except Arnold is running things. So, I guess things are not quite as bad.

Actually, it's pretty cool there. Lots of stuff to do when visiting.

Great food

It is expensive but to my mind worth it.

I just realised that I appear to be a california person.

the east coast does not do it for me, and we both lived in boston for 4 years before moving to SF in 1998.

So moving back to SF is exciting. As is the prospect of looking for property yay!

If you time it right maybe you can load some of the stuff into Randy's car somewhere in Texas.

I HATE San Francisco, and can't imagine how anyone could live there, and moreso, miss it.

No parking, bums on every corner, horrible streets, and too many damn people.

I go there maybe once a year, and that's to hit up the music shops and my friends house on Treasure Island.

I'm living here, and still wish I can afford it.

Eventually, I wish I can afford to own property here. Median cost of a house in the Bay Area hit $500K this year, up more than 10% from a year ago. And that's for a pretty crappy house.

Yeah, I really hate the "bums lining every street" aspect, too.

Speaking of which, there is a nice webpage about a part of San Francisco that's full of them. Interesting read.

I have friends that live in the 'loin. It's the place to pick up transvestites among other things.

There are indeed a lot of bums in SF, that's because our good friends in oregon and washington give there bums a bus ticket to sf

I think although not having been there for more than a couple of weekends this year, that our new mayor is attacking the homeless situation with as much gusto as he can.

But SF has lots more to offer than just homeless.
Perfect weather, cool in the morning for walking to work, hot to warm during the day, and cool in the evening for ease of sleeping.

Then there is snow at Tahoe close by
Hiking all over the place.

I just love it.

The Terderloin has been the same since 1980 til now, only getting worse by the day.
