We flew to San Diego for about 5 days to get together with the gang and enjoy some much missed sunshine. April & Eric (Yellowstoners) picked us up from the airport and off we went to a bar where CMF (Shane Ring - Garmischer) met us and we all caught up and had much needed chats. That night when we got back to their apartment we found out one of their roomies is Shaun another Garmischer we haven't seen for years. Such a small world. Then off we went North to Fallbrook to check out Corky & Michelle's sweet pad and views with smores and their cute dogs. Over the next few days we stayed in the garage at the beach house (thanks bear) and watched everyone else get really messed up. I really loved spending hours walking long the boardwalk where people jog, walk, ride strange contraptions and look at all the beach houses I will never be able to afford to even rent for a week. I found out my old boss and now friend - Kathleen - had just given birth to a lovely baby boy so we couldn't meet up unfortunately. The reception was great and funny and I got way too drunk. The day after the weding I hung with April again while crazy energizer battery Ben went on his second hash (remember from Bali when we did our first one). He came home quite messed up and promplty fell asleep on the couch missing out on the dinner April had cooked for us. Unfortunately it ended so quickly and all of a sudden we were saying goodbye and wishing San D wasn't so crowded & expensive.
