We have another snow day here in Baltimore, so my third graders avoid a day of my torment.
Buried here by 3 feet of snow, so I decided to check in. Mel, this is an awesome idea. Cali is the t!ts and there is so much to do. The only problem is traffic. I have a buddy down in Orange Co that you'd love. He routinely horrifies the bar he frequents with outlandish statements and challenges only to turn around with a big hug and... "...you thought I meant that?!" hahahaha.
Consult F8 as he has posted some pictures that would be well worth the real life enjoyment. Good luck, sounds like you're doin good. Worry less, travel and enjoy more.
