Initially, I had planned to spend a week in San Francisco before making my way up north.  It has been three weeks and I don’t see myself leaving anytime soon.  Escape from San Francisco is going to be much more difficult than I thought.

“I swear, I’m not addicted.  I can leave anytime I want.  I just don’t want to yet”.

Living in an RV here is a piece of cake.  Finding parking, showering, eating, cleaning, and all other chores are much easier than I had anticipated.  I could easily spend months here at a time living in an RV without a problem.

My neighbor, Tynan, who has the same RV as me (much different mods though) has been living in his right here in the city for the last 8 months.  Its not like either of us can’t afford to live in a regular apartment; we just prefer the RV lifestyle.

I wasn’t the only one dressed as a weirdo for Bay to Breakers.

What Now?

My stay here in San Francisco has helped shape the future of my journey.  I like how I got to know the city as more of a resident than a tourist.  Visiting as a tourist is enjoyable, but how accurately does going to Alcatraz represent the life of a typical resident?

My best guess is that I’ll make my escape from SF sometime around the week of June 6th.  I’ll make some brief stops in various destinations along my way north, and then settle down for another solid month in Seattle.  Ideally, I’d spend the month of July in Seattle before venturing East.
