In spite of the miserable travel schedule/delays the trip was useful and pretty enjoyable. I was able to visit the fluid mechanics labs, meet with a few very knowledgeable professors, present some of my work, and have lunch at the faculty club (the bathroom had cloth towels in it). Plus I was able to walk around Stanford's campus a bit and in the evening my advisor and I went into San Francisco for dinner. Since this was my first visit to the area my advisor figured I couldn't go to San Fransisco and not see the Golden Gate Bridge so we went down to Fisherman's Wharf and was able to get a nice view of the bridge at night as well as Alcatraz. The only unfortunate thing about the trip was that I was within a few miles of two close friends of mine and wasn't able to visit them because the trip was so short, but with any luck I'll be making more visits out there.

I had made a promise not to work on it when she wasn’t there. Well it was late one night and I just happened to see two pieces that went together and before I knew it I had put together a decent amount…opps, but Dem said it was alright.
The next time we got to work on it we made a lot of progress really fast…it was about 11pm when we took this picture. Since I knew I won’t have the will power not to put pieces together until the next time she came over I pushed for us to finish it that night. Though she was pretty tired by the end she stuck it out all the way until we finished that night.Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Puzzle

The more recent cut that the stupid corner has made on my leg (the lower one is the cut shown in the center image of my last update).
