We stumbled onto the filming of the movie Presidio. I talked to the camera crew but didn't see Sean Connery anywhere. In the morning, it began raining heavily. Jim and I hoofed it to 11 companies until we found someone who would rent us a car. Then we cruised the bay all day, visiting Candlestick Park, the projects in Oakland…everything except the Golden Gate Bridge. I went through three rolls of film and Jim took me places I would have never visited on my own.
Unfortunately, Jim turned out to be a drug abuser. He was getting high in bathrooms, and driving me around. He was a scary guy. We visited his aunt and uncle and I told them he needed help. They talked to him about it...but we left. I didn’t quite know how to get rid of him. He asked me to drop him off at a corner to visit a friend and he borrowed my camera. As soon as he got to the corner, I blasted out of there. I had very little money, no idea where I was, driving a strange car at night…and it was rush hour in San Francisco!!!
