When you take on a challenge to try every restaurant in town, it really gets you out of your comfort zone with the added bonus of experiencing some really great food.

That’s one of the reasons why I started this challenge. The second is to hopefully inspire others to get out and discover new places in Livermore too.

Now not every restaurant in Livermore is full of excitement and adventure. Part of the deal with trying every restaurant in town is to, well, try every restaurant in town. That includes the fast food joints that we all know quite well.

That leads me to Jack in the Box, my 43rd restaurant for The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge.

Jack and the Box has three locations in Livermore; one is downtown, the other two are along I-580 at the Livermore Avenue and Vasco Road exits. This week the Vasco location is my choice for a late night snack.

Over the years I have flown to almost every restaurant within about two hours flying time from the Livermore airport. Some might ask why? Well, as a pilot I have to “legally” fly every ninety days and make three takeoffs and landings to “legally” take passengers. Since I’m retired and love to fly I find this requirement no great hardship, but it is nice to have a destination for flight planning purposes. The regulations also state that as a private pilot I cannot take any money in exchange for the flight, but it is nice to get a free meal (the passenger pays) and have someone to share it with.
