    Quoted from mof:

    Great photo ops, and then you get to see all the massive oakland cranes up close (the inspiration for the At-Ats in Empire)...
    -mof

    Yep. While attending USC film school in L.A. George Lucas was exposed to the massive dual ports LA/LB and their cranes. Here’s one being retrofitted at Long Beach port 140 I snapped a pic of 5 minutes ago. A few miles away Spielberg went to Long Beach State University.

    I would be more worried about the fake blond that looks like she's working out in her head how to kidnap you and tie you up in her basement sex dungeon, if I were you.

    Quoted from rotordave:

    I’m always fascinated by the huge solar arrays you see on I-15 just over the California State Line.

    It’s called the Ivanpah Solar Power Facility. All the mirrors reflect sunlight at a central collector (there are 3 of them) and this boils water to drive steam turbines to make electricity.
    There are .... wait for it ... 173,000 mirrors. Imagine walking into an engineering shop and saying “hey, can you make me some mirrors?”
    “Yeah, how many you need?”
    “Ummm .... one hundred and seventy three thousand...”
    “shit!”
    Very clever. It makes enough power for 140,000 homes at peak time.
    rd

    I heard that the mirrors heat molten salt which then heats the water and that they had a big problem with birds flying through the reflected sunlight and and instantly being vaporized. That’s just what I heard. Not sure how accurate that is.

    Jezzzzus! It sure has rained at times.

    You should have been here last year. Biggest rain last year in 30+ years.

    Quoted from rotordave:

    Literally 1 minute after he told us that story, some athlete looking dude and this wanna be kardashian girl show up and started talking really loudly and posing all over the place for Instagram photos. After every few shots, they’d gather around the phone to make sure the photos made them look super awesome so everyone would be very impressed.
    When we were at the next destination, they showed up again, and the girl changed into a completely different outfit in the car, and they started off all over again.
    What’s becoming of the world ...?
    rd

    Gee Dave, I hate to break it to you, but your sorta Pinside’s Kardashian. We’re all following you and clicking “like” (upvoting) your pics and adventures.

    Ah crap, I thought this was next week. I was gonna go. Oh well. I’ll be there for the March expo. I know how you feel about the clapping. When Dialed In was at pin a go go I had a very good 3rd ball. After I drained and entered my initials the gathered crowd all clapped. I felt like freakin Wonder woman. I mean Iron Man. I felt like Iron Man.

    Anyway congrats.

    I hope you got a chance to drive the coast around the Palos Verdes Peninsula where I grew up. It’s quite beautiful. Just look at my avatar.

    Quoted from rotordave:

    Getting ready to leave for home tonight.
    The girls wanted to pick up something at Walmart, so we went to Long Beach and I noticed that the Walmart was over the road from Me-n-Eds Pizza, where NimblePin had taken me on the last trip.
    Me-n-Eds is a ma and pa pizza franchise joint, started in 1958. At one stage, there were a heap of them, including some up in Canada. They are still around in some places. This one is one of the original ones. It sports a “Ye olde” English theme which is sort of odd for pizza ... isn’t that Italian? Ha!
    Anyway, the pizza is good.
    rd

    I drive by Me and Ed’s pizza often but have never tried their pizza. Your post made me decide to stop by there tonight. It’s pretty good.
