I was really happy to visit some old Tennessee friends in Oakland, CA. I staid with Adam and Corey for a week and checked out some big city living and caught up a little on some music jams. Visited good restaurants and breweries including Beer Revolution and Soully Vegan, the San Francisco MoMA, music by Black Dice, city bike riding, Walden Pond Books, street car riding and general urban fun. Never enough time with good friends though. Look forward to seeing them again soon. Thanks for the hospitality and putting up with dirty but trying to be as clean as possible van dweller. Adam had even set up a replica of the Brown Road mantle from Knoxville. Really felt at home.
