Went to Oakland last weekend with friends and they brought a big lens. there was concern in line because they had metal detectors and it was like airport security minus the shoes part. Keys and phones in the bin, slide along through the detector. We picked a good line though. They didn't look in the camera bag, nor did they stop my friend when the lens in his jacket set off the red lights on the detector! doh.
I prefer to let the guys with the media jackets take pics. I just wanted to see the SX spectacle up close, and that part was great. Not so keen on the drunk crowd, the security, or the deathmarch from overflow parking a mile away ($30!!!)
Went to Metcalf on sunday and actually burned some laps of the MX track.
Good weekend. :)
