I was impressed with his backgrounds. You can tell it’s SF just from looking at ’em.
Unless, of course, you’re some mambsy pambsy who’s never watched Full House.
I’ve not been to SF, but it does remind me of some of the residential Seattle neighborhoods…
Does Seattle have hills with a 50 degree slope? I grew up near San Fransico and those hills featured in some of my nighmares.
Mostly they’re 30-40 degrees by my judgement (I left my protractor at home, airline weapons rules and all that…). 😉 There was one particularly nasty one I recall, I think it was on Queen Anne Hill. I wouldn’t want to go up or down it with even a hint of a breeze of frost on the ground…
Yeah, Queen Anne Hill is nuts. I live on Capitol Hill/First Hill, myself, and the streets around here are… 20-25 degrees at their worst. At least in my part of the neighborhood.
First time I drove in SF was in my Jeep — manual transmission. *That’s* a trip, especially when you’re the first car at one of those stop signs that’s just below the crest of a hill. The kids I was driving for that day’s field trip realized why seatbelts are a really good thing…
Ahahaha. Yeah. If you think it’s crazy driving yourself, try one of the taxis.
As we speak, I live near and drive in San Francisco.
Trust me, he was NOT exaggurating, even with the last panel.
Usually, tho, you have the fun of being on a 50+ degree slope.
In the rain.
It does make you feel good about the quality of your brakes and tires…
Isn’t this why you use public transportation?
Don’t get me anywhere near started on MUNI…
Much as I love Schlock, for the last few weeks, Real Life has been the strip that’s made me laugh out loud consistently — and read out loud to my wife.
Yes, we recently moved. And we live in the Bay Area.
Meep. I’m a flatlander, a coastal gal. I’ve been to SF, and will never ever nevernevernever drive there. I’ll walk, first, should the occasion ever arise. Even if it takes 3 days.
Putting my “no clue about hills” self in a car there would be asking me to die.. and perhaps take half the population of SF with me. /shudder
