Planes, trains and automobiles

I had a big time in San Francisco, and as always when I travel, it was a curious combination of the frugal and the extravagant. I flew out of Charlotte to get a cheaper plane ticket (three hour drive), parked in the satellite parking way out yonder ($13.25 from Tuesday to Saturday), took BART to and from the Oakland airport ($5.15 one way), bought a MUNI pass ($20) and went out of my way to ride everywhere on the cable cars (not that they go everywhere), and still spent a pile of money - mostly on food, even though the amount of food given away in connection with the event I attended was incredible.
