This morning we drove down to Fightertown in Mountain View to meet a few friends. Fightertown has full-motion flight simulators, as well as several simulatorsthat don’t have full-motion, but that are made out of actual aircraftcockpits. We had a good time blowing each other out of the sky andtrying to avoid running into the virtual earth.

We finished making most of our plans for our August trip to Cape Codtoday. The AAA web site, while occasionally irritating, washelpful. According to the CSAA (California’s own mutant AAA), 3.7 millionCalifornians were going to be driving somewhere this holiday weekend. From what we saw on our way to Mountain View this morning, more than a feware hitting the road in the Bay Area.
