It seems like unless I am headed for Hawaii, I rarely find time for brief vacations anymore, even for a weekend. But last weekend, my brother-in-law from Chicago flew into the Bay Area. Well, actually, his company contacts were in Sunnyvale. There didn't seem to be as much to do in Sunnyvale than in San Jose, so San Jose it was.
Now, one of the first homes I sold in Sacramento way-back-when was to buyers from San Jose. Those former clients used to drive roundtrip to San Jose every other weekend to visit their parents, and for them, it was a 3-hour trip. We shot right down I-5 in 2 1/2 hours and a bit under that coming home on Sunday. Good traffic. Hit the road just in time for me to relay all of the open house reports to my sellers as we drove along.
