Camping in Yosemite, a week of vacation time...

Lily and Karen visited this past week as part of our almost/kinda-annual gettogether, and we hit up Maker's Faire, Yosemite, and a whole chunk of San Francisco tourist things (Alcatraz, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, Japantown, Great Mall of America (for outlet mall shopping), driving down the curvy Lombard Street).

Camping was pretty awesome. Pitching a tent has gotten easier to do, and we managed to start our own fire (although we used easy-starting fire log things), cook frozen burgers, hotdogs, and cans of beans and corn.

It was good not thinking about any work related stuff for practically a week and.. several days. Yay memorial day weekend.

-Get my ankle checked. It still hurts periodically if twisted a certain way. Need to make sure it's healing without problems.
-Get my fuel tank system checked. I seem to be unable to fill the tank up past 5 gallons in my Prius. (Thinking that I had around 10 gallons, and the fuel meter was just inaccurate, we just kept driving after it started warning us about low fuel, we ended up running out of fuel and relying on the battery to get us to the nearest gas station. But when we fueled up, the pump clicked off after 4 gallons... :\ ). I know it's a bladder system, and I've read some things about mandatory low-emissions pump systems in california possibly causing the pump to stop pumping early, but everyone seems to report a "stop pumping early" was 8 gallons out of the 11.9, not 5.)
