I'm going to wait and go first thing in the morning. I keep getting caught up with additional details and at this rate I wouldn't get there till after 2 which is not that late but I'd rather go and do it in the morning. then I can spend this afternoon and tomorrow afternoon doing some kind of work.
I think I've worked out the best route and it is nothing like the route recommended by the trip planner at 511.org. I guess they are trying to save me money by not putting me on BART first but really going downtown and catching the bus to North Beach is going to be much faster and get me much closer.
really the thing is that I don't like to face new things in the second part of the day. coffee and wits are best in the morning and so I'd rather do all scary stuff then.
