Freewayblogging: Big and Small

When I saw the pictures of the HUGE signs in Scarlet's living room, I asked him when we would get a chance to hang them, fishing for an invite to help him hang these extra-large beacons of information. We decided today would be a great day to hang signs (what day isn't a great day?) and met at the San Francisco landmark, Coit Tower.



The first sign we hung was an image all too familiar, summing up the United States' policy on how best to treat POW's.


I took a wider shot here to show the sign next to the tower. Can you see it?


Then came time for the huge IMPEACH sign. This one took a little extra effort and I was glad I was there to help. Once we got it hung, though, it looked great....




On the way home, I decided to hang a few signs I had in the back of the car. The nice thing about travelling with signs in the car is that you can hang them whenever you feel inspired.

I also took a couple of scenic shots of the magnificent view we had while hanging these signs. What a great place to live.

Fantastic! Wonderful. Wish you lived around here - you would sure ruffle a lot of redneck nerves.

You're a lucky man. Perhaps someday I will return there. . .

Thanks for the help, PT. Sadly, Sparky and the Giant Impeach (postmodern children's book perhaps?) were gone by 11:30 a.m... The price one pays for Going Large.

However, I did some Bee-yooo-tiful work on the 101... and then the 80 and 580... then back to the 101 on the way home...

Mary,
Thank you. We ruffle quite a few of them out here.

John,
When you do return, be sure to let me know you're on your way. I'd look forward to meeting you.

Peter,
Thanks, as always.

Scarlet,
Your IMPEACH sign on the Cesar Chavez overpass was still up tonight at 11:00PM when I drove home from work as well as the two signs pictured here at the Alemany pedestrian bridge that I hung earlier today.

Graeme,
Thank you.

PT you ARE an inspiration. I know a couple of friends here in town who will be more than willing to go out and do some freeway blogging with me once my back has healed. Say around mid-May I should be ready to start getting some IMPEACH signs together. Please, keep up your good work!!

Kudos to the Bay Area road warriors! Thanks for documenting your efforts, pt, esp. some were short-lived.

And thanks for the shots of the great bridges. I used to commute over both daily 'tween Marin and Hayward, so that was particularly nostalgic.

Oh, and one more thing I'd like to add. Thanks for choosing the blog identity you did, pt. A year ago last winter, while shopping online for a new car, a Honda, Toyota, whatever, I Googled "PT Cruiser" and got far more than I expected--revolutionary inspiration!

These are the reasons I miss the bay area so much.

Nicely done!

Where's the snow?...nice work!

Snave,
I'll keep it up if you send me the photos of your own freewayblogging.

Sumo,
Thank you for your continued support.

Dada,
I get a lot of hits for the car. Some of those car enthusiasts must be pretty surprised when they find this site.

Maria,
And away we go!

Glenda,
Thank you so much and thank you for all that you do.

James,
Consider this your home away from home. You'd fit right in here.

Coffee,
The Bay Area misses you too.

Mike,
I'll leave all the snow plowing to you my cold-wether friend.
