A sedative for the kids (maybe the wife?) might be a good idea. Michael Jackson preferred this one...
What really sucks is the ride home......
You have a great time all week end , headed home on the two lane hwy behind some Mid life couple that just bought a new PT Crusier...(PT Loser)....Going 45mph with no where to pass...then you get into Santa Barr Bra and hit bumper to bumper traffic...???...(5 year construction project)...get through there and hit trafific in Oxnard...Why is there traffic in Oxnard on a Sunday afternoon? There's nothing in Oxnard to cause traffic.....Over the hill into the LA Basin.....We've had smooth sailing and we've had nightmares...One time it was bumper to bumper from Sherman Oaks to Long Beach.....Stay mellow.....Pre dawn from San Diego to Big Sur has worked best for us.....
And the Stingray predawn cocktail.....One 7-11 32oz big glup full of Mountain Dew....One Red Bull...Drink a few oz of the Big Glup...drink a few sips of the RedBull....Pour Red Bull into Big Glup......That will get you from San Diego to Ventura...
oh yeah driving sunday afternoon
historic highest density auto system
on the planet is the burr in the saddle blanket.
the freeways are empty just 12 hours before or after these
high use times.driving through the system at 5 am
sunday morning on the full moon
with all six or seven lanes completely empty
going down town from LAX
is like surfing rincon with nobody out.
if only you could put off driving a day or so to leave
plaskett at like 3 am.
stop in ventura
and then run The L.A.
gauntlet in the am.you
would glide through
like your hand over a cured gloss...
is some times best spent
just sitting in one place watching
everybody else drive.
three o'clock sunday afterrnoon
is the best time to go surf,
everybody is packing up to drive home
in assorted trains of cars
with your favorite slow guy in front
singing casy jones the engineer songs.
surfing is not
just paddling out
at a beach.
it's driving or
or shopping for olives.
good surf sessions
start and end at the
stoplight at the corner
of your block.

Hi Kokua -
Seen one of these?
Howzit John, That is so classic. Actually I bid on a 12 volt great quality blender on ebay and was the ony bidder and got it for $25 plus $15 shipping. It is that same one that the boat stores sell for $100 and it was used just twice and the owner sold his boat and didn't need it any more. Plugs into the cig lighter so I am set now. Since this is my first time I am wondering what to bring besides beer and some food and a cooler of course but for some reason Iknow I amforgetting something and don't want to show up without a much needed supply. I have to go through the family camping gear to see what we have. May buy a power inverter but want to get a good quality one so I can recharge my laptop. Aloha,Kokua
It's a crazy life....
MarkSSD,Stingray ,and Surf4fins.......We've got a spot...we have $$$ to get us there and back....We're Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Howzit stingray. Blender arrived today so I am 1 step closer to making it to there. Have been using the dremel on my dentures and it is making a difference and have been eating some food with them but they still could be more comforable and still like using the blender. Its the throat that is the real problem and I see a doctor in 10 days and hopefully he can help with that problem.Aloha,Kokua
Wondering if anyone would have a extra parking space at their site for Friday or Saturday night? I have a lofted bed setup in my camper shell and will sleep in there, so no tent-space needed. I'll probably bring a 2'x4' folding table to cook on, but that's all the space we'd take up. It'll be myself, girlfriend and my 30lb well-mannered dog. Can bring plenty of beer/wine/tequila, or maybe cook a meal for whoever can offer a space. Am getting really excited, should be a lot of fun, especially if the waves decide to turn back on and cooperate!
Kokua and others,
Can somebody pull there vehicle or extra vehicle into my camp site on thursday after 3 pm check in . They will give away the site if you do not check in the day of arrival , like they did last yaer . I will arrive friday . site # 043 . reservation # 2-1230689 .
thank you james
Has anyone offered to get your parking spot yet James. I am the unofficial leader of the Santa Cruz/ Orange county chapter. I can easily put a truck in the spot for you. As it turns out me and my gang could use as many spots as possible. See you guys there. Darren
