In the last few years, I have started picking up paid speaking engagements. It is really fun, and not very hard work. I have to drive 180 miles to SF Thursday afternoon, hit a Giants game with employees of the event organizer, and stay in a paid-for hotel (expense account dinner, yo). Friday, I am the keynote speaker to a bunch of livestock people, then another Giants game with them, return Sat. morning. It pays well, and is not difficult.

I am giving serious thought to taking the Sunchaser to SF. The Infiniti is more comfy, but I kind of want to take a spin around the Bay area before coming home Saturday.
