So glad you had a good time. Yeah ... the San Mateo bridge is pretty freaky ... a long ways, no where to pull over and very low railings. A driver is not "held in" like the other bridges. I think ( not sure ) only FL has similar bridges that go over the shallows. Hold on to that toll ticket - as all toll tickets just went extinct. No more stopping, no more toll takers and no more fumbling for change. Now it's all pre-paid passes or a camera takes a picture of the license plate and one gets a bill in the mail. Some rental cars have the passes installed, and some don't.
Anyway - glad you had a great time at the game too. If you ever plan on trying that trip again, let me know ahead of time and I'll help you plan a fantastic trip!
I'm sure the removal of the actual pay-tolls has helped the traffic flow on the Golden Gate? At least somewhat I would hope! The only other bridges I've been across that were ridiculously long were the Chesapeake Bay bridge in high school on a bus trip to VA beach (that bridge is NO FUN if you are not a fan of bridges!!) and then the Chesapeake Bridge which I went over a few years ago with a friend and his brother, on our way from Baltimore to the race in Dover. I had no idea the bridge was on our route, saw it on the map on my phone a few minutes ahead of time, and thought to myself that it was the Chesapeake Bay bridge and I was like no way, we aren't anywhere near that one... well the Chesapeake Bridge (I think that's what it is called) is also a good 5.5 miles long... my friend and his brother had a good laugh at me during my anxiety attack going over that sucker!! Luckily we did not have to take that same route on the way home!!
I definitely plan on getting out to SF again sometime and I will be sure to hit you up for some help!! Thanks so very much for the offer!!
