    Checked into SFO but need to get in some breakfast before my flight to Chicago. Marvin is trying out Filipino food with a chicken rice bowl breakfast today!



    Almost ready to take off!





    Grabbing a bite to eat while thrashing on slot cars!

    Oh brownies!!!! Yum!










    Last heat of the A main for G27L and Marvin took an unexpected trip off the track after contacting with another car in it’s way and broke a magnets!



    Marvin’s wanted to go to the all you can eat Sushi place but got veto’d. So we went to the Italian restaurant.

    Waiting for my flight home to SFO. It was a fun trip as I got to race and see good friends.

    A personal thanks for the Iga family for letting Al and Marvin stay at Iga Manor’s and to
    Mike Swiss
    for hosting the racing.

    Here’s hoping that we can get back to normal for everyone to travel normally someday.
