    a few goodies here and there!
    Saw you yesterday morning Tom. On Bastanchury and Valencia - or Rose. Can't remember. Anyways - I assume you were driving home from work, because it was like 8:30am and you were heading into YL. I was heading to the freeway. My cousin is in from England so I took him offroading.

    Good job spotting that!

    I was debating taking Valley, but when I got into Pasadena it was wide open all the way to Baldwin (I mean I was doing 75)... it NORMALLY backs up to San Gabriel.
    Socked in from there to the Irwindale underpass, but considering I left work about 20 minutes late, the backup only cost me about 15 minutes... and honestly, I normally get home somewhere close to 6 on Thursday anyways, so it really wasn't that bad.

    So who's got the awesome MT or LT black 2nd Gen with a stinger up front and bed-mounted tire and a yellow or orange tag (I think it's Alaska)? I've seen that truck a few times in Burbank, always within a block of or on 1st.
    Saw it yesterday heading west on the Olive overpass around 6:30am.

    Luckily I'm off work before 210 traffic. But yesterday was bad. That stupid bus turned my 15 minute freeway drive into and hour.

    No shit.

    I get off at 4 M-T and 3 on Friday (every other Friday off).
    For once, getting off at 4, and being the dedicated fuck that I am, staying late without pay (and yes, I'm a city worker), actually paid off.

    Never 605.

    I leave Chino between 5 and 5:20am
    60 to 71, 71 to 57/210, 210 to 134, 134 to 5, off at Olive.
    I generally hit the Olive ramp pretty close to 6.

    I leave Burbank a little after 4pm, generally get back to Chino between 5:30 and 6.

    Rancho would suck because the 210 packs in again at the 57.

    Pomona would be nice, if it weren't such a shithole.

    Upland wouldn't be bad.

    But no.

    In Chino, I get the 71 south.
    Or in the words of Jimmy Fallon:
    "Thank you, California Department of Transportation, for making sure that the last 10 miles of my commute takes as long as the first 33 miles."

    We REALLY need a truck bypass on the 210/57/71 transition network.

    Hey man!

    Just have been busy with work and life. I got a reckless driving ticket so that was a bummer too. So yeah.

    Anyways - I have an open schedule now so hit me up whenever you are doing those meets and I hope to see you guys soon.
