Riding BART
01.14.09 (4:45 pm)   [edit]

No, not that Bart!

Total 11 videos, ranging from 12 seconds to 3-1/2 minutes. My typical escape-from-San-Francisco mini-vacation of sanity. First I hop on the Metro just a half block from my "home" (actually just an SRO) all the way to the Civic Center, where I transfer to BART ("Bay Area Rapid Transit"). Whisked away to Berkeley for most of the day: my little piece of heaven on earth.

Starting with 11 working my way back, at home, on dialup. This is inspiring. I should attempt one of my favorite drives (the train doesn't raise up on any platform) maybe with a dashmounted tripod.

Dialup? I don't have the patience! I figured you'd enjoy reminiscing your journeys to Berkeley with these BART videos. Thanks, John!

I actually find the sounds so familiar I can smell the dank concrete in the stations. I downloaded Googoo Earth and took a wild ride over Lake Anza, Lawrence Hall, Shasta Gate, the Roee Garden, and the Euclid block just north of campus. Then the service cut out on me, saying my video card was inadequate and at this point I can only browse what I've already cached.

They approximate addresses, assuming all individual property fronts are equal. I looked up an address and it showed a picture of a farmhouse with a porch. I drove over there, and the farm house is the house next door to the real address, a turn of the century colonial with a mansard (barn) roof.
