  1. Jeff got my first Saturday similar size to yours. Was gonna go out today but hear the cops are giving tickets in Santa Cruz, 4 guys from Freemont stopped in a 7-11 and all for were ticketed 1000 each as they didn't have an explanation for why they were there. Do you know if the beaches are shut down when I went Saturday I didn't check as I assumed beaches would be open for fishing, basically Caltrans had marked most of hwy 1 with no parking signs everywhere. I caught mine at Pescadero.

      Hi Gary - I just got back from a quick trip to the beach, and I got a ticket parking ticket! I thought I was in a safe location..


      Up here the beaches are open for locals only. If you drive to a beach you are in violation of the order,  if you walk you are good. What is happening down there, I think, is they have had to fully close the popular easily accessible beaches because nothing less was doing the trick. I think what you need to do is to figure out a more remote beach that isn’t under as tight of a lock down, or much scrutiny, and has reasonably safe parking near the trail head.


      Yeah, those guys from Fremont, they did everything wrong, complete ass-hats.

  3. I'm the king of being cheap being a photographer I find bargain sling bags for cameras work great and always on sale on the web. since there are literally millions of photographers the choices are great and many f them are waterproof with great zippers.
  4. that's some serious ribs
  5. I'm bringing my camera again just in case, still bringing drinks also. looking forward . to it.
  6. I'm in I'll bring a couple of cases of mixed soft drinks or anything needed if that doesn't work. Gary
  7. Norcalkat, you're 100% correct as always the American consumer gets screwed. We will all be paying considerably more for any goods if it's enacted. Wallmart today announced a large price increase coming soon. Oh well
  8. After working in Silicon Valley for the last 15 yrs I'm in favor of a policy preventing China from stealing intellectual property, what I don't understand is how we didn't align our policy with other allies to really put pressure on China. Also, I would propose a novel way to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. by the time this trade dispute is over the government will have put 50 billion dollars in relief efforts just for our farmers, not to mention other industries. Why don't we as Americans do what China did to start all of this, their government and treasury gave massive subsidies and provided them with the ability to undercut every other country on manufacturing cost and pricing. Our enlightened peers in Washington throw hundreds of billions of dollars away every year with not a single benefit to us. Maybe it's time to rethink things.
  9. Sweet I'm past 60 can I have some? Very nice well done. Enjoy your time together.

  11. Hi Jim,


    that ling looks awesome how did you cook that?




  12. Jeff, I spent 15 years as a general sales manager with BMW and I've built cars since I was 16 at over 60 I know quite a bit about vehicles and longevity and quality. The only way to go in my opinion is Sequoia. I bought a used lx 450 Lexus a while back, it's the same as a land cruiser, paid 5k for it it had 158 thousand miles on it sold it with 410k on it for what I paid for it, and in the entire time I owned it put one 02 sensors on a catalytic converter at a cost or about 150 dollars. As far as domestic they are all junk period. It's well known in the car industry any domestic with 100-150 k is near the end of its life cycle. Call me if you want to talk vehicles. Also, put your search radius at about 500 miles once you get out of the bay area things get more realistic. Gary
  13. Foles has shown he deserves a shot somewhere, and besides if he can sign for Kirk Cousins kind of money why not. He's a good guy overall and has earned it. Did you see his performance today in the Bears game:)
  14. yeah, the Chargers just beat the #1 defense in the league, they don't seem to mind being on the road, look at their last three wins...pretty amazing and for the first time in a long time, Phillip rivers has some weapons around him. Not too mention a stellar defense. for sure the game will be well coached on both sides, looking forward to an entertaining game.
