Speaking Gig Warsaw and Trekking Gig Alpujarras, Spain

I’m about 19 hours from departure from home. 26 hours from departure from San Fran International (SFO). I leave Arnold, CA at about 10:30am tomorrow morning. It goes like this: Arnold –> Burlingame parking (10:30am – 1:00pm) Burlingame –> SFO (half hour) Depart SFO at 4:20pm (British Airways) After 10 hours and 30 minutes, arrive at 11:00am on the 17th at Heathrow in London—lamenting that it looks nothing like the films from the 70s.

Points as to Independence

This is America’s founding document, not the US Constitution. It constitutes, to this day, the greatest leap forward for pro-civilization in the history of mankind.
