A Day in Pictures – San Francisco (Plus: Reader Survey)

105 Comments



I get a lot of flack for uploading too few photos to Flickr. Perhaps a professional can help.

One of my favorite photographers is Corey Arnold, an all-around bad-ass who can often be seen on Deadliest Catch aboard the F/V Rollo in the Bering Sea. He recently sent me these shots from a series he dubbed “A Day in the Life of Tim Ferriss,” which captured us roaming through SF messing around and getting in trouble.

Beginning tomorrow, I’ll be taking a road trip with my brother along the Pacific coast through Portland, Eugene, Seattle, and Vancouver at a minimum. For those interested, I’ll be posting my most interesting findings and disasters (we’re winging the entire trip) here on Twitter.

  1. How about ‘How to learn a language with Twitter as you escape from the Amish down the Amazon’?

    I’m pretty sure that’s never been done before and I’ll take a stab in the dark that the domain name is even available if you want to make it into a book or movie.

  2. Very interested in the language post, but not sure what “Escaping the Amish” is?? The first language post you did was VERY cool, looking forward to another!

    Have a good trip with your bro, and hello from the mountains of Colorado!

  3. Tim, Been waitin’ to see part two of the language lessons since the “old” blog. . .looking at the numbers, seems like I might finally get the chance! I’ve been working on using your tips to learn Chinese, so any more help is always good!

  4. Tim, why’d you take off the previous blog entry?

    Hi Aaron,

    I just moved it down to around June 6th. The comment count was showing an abysmal response rate, so I downgraded it. More to come soon on how I manage the blog :)

    If you search “e-mail bankruptcy,” you’ll find it immediately, or you can just scroll down.

    Cheers,

  5. Hey Tim,

    If you’re going to be in Oregon you have to hit up some microbreweries! I’m not sure if you’re as big a fan of beer as you are wine but Oregon hosts some of the best.

    If you’re in Eugene, head to the Steelhead Brewery. It’s a bad-ass place to sit on some very comfortable chairs and sample some excellent brews. Also, if you get to Bend, you must stop by Deschutes Brewery.

    Oh, and make sure to stay at the Oval Door. The girls there are from CA and one even went to the Culinary institute. A very cool place with amazing food. (As a fellow fitness geek, you’ll dig the homemade granola!)

    Cheers and let me know if your guys’ travels take you near Whitefish, Montana. Only a half-day drive from Seattle and Glacier National Park in the back yard. Good hikes, great food, and laid back people.

  6. Quality pics Tim!

    Next time lets see a windmill in the middle of the SF streets at night time with a slower shutter speed. It just may be a good one.

  7. Q1: I would like to see what “other” assumptions you live by… in the interview with J.D. you mention that you live under certain assumptions — like, long life is not a guarantee — I would like to see some of your other assumptions.

  9. Hi Tim,

    My first thought re: the poll was, “Do I have to choose one of these?” Learning greek (or any language) sounds cool, but I guess I’m looking for deeper or more exciting ideas.

    Not sure if anybody else was confused, but the photo set “day in the life of tim ferriss” is below the fold on his flickr page.

    Thanks!

  10. Hi Tim — my lifestyle re-design continues!

    I arrived back in VANCOUVER last thursday with my wife and two young kids (age 7 and 3) after 20 years living overseas — Hong Kong, Philippines, D.C., San Luis Obispo etc. Also joined Toastmasters on monday. I nearly passed out so I liken this to the thrill/fear of sky-diving. Yes?

    Now, we’re officially in Vancouver for 2 months (a mini-retirement of sorts). So, I figure I have a few weeks to convince her to leave her parents in Normal, Illinois (yes, Normal) and move here permanently. Yikes!

    While you’re in Vancouver, if you are up for some great red wine, a tango dance (I’ll have to take the class) or ??, just give me a shout.

  11. Cool pic, I would love to see a post about future innovation and where you see the world of business moving in a futurist perspective. Please do add how you think the ideal lifestyle would fit into it.

  13. Hey Tim,

    Of course you absolutely MUST go to the Heart of Oregon Wine Country, Carlton, Oregon, the tiny, charming town of 1500 with more wineries than any other city in Oregon :-).

    You’ve got my email through this, so let me know if you’d like me to arrange some private tastings right in town. But there are plenty of tasting rooms open regardless.

    For restaurants, Cuvee serves up very nice French food, but I tend to go to Cielo Blu for Italian. You can’t miss them. The downtown is only two blocks long. Nice restaurants, as you might guess, since good food sprouts up around excellent wine.

    We have a few nice B&Bs also, but I hesitate to make a specific recommendation since I haven’t stayed in them myself. I’ll pass on the “buzz” if you really want it.

    Let me know if I can help.

    Sarah
