The Captain Is Going Back To Cali

My Year On The Road involved quite a bit of driving but it was usually bunched together into a couple of states at a time.  All except for the massive six week trip I left for back in August 2003.  In two weeks time, I drove south through Oklahoma down to Texas, and then headed west through New Mexico and Arizona on my way to California.  It was a hell of a lot of driving through a scorching hot group of states that was quite memorable.  And at the end of my drive was an old friend and a hell of a good time in San Diego.  So for #WaybackWednesday here’s a pic of me with LJ and Amie

This was taken a few hours after I rolled into town on Friday, August 29th in 2003.  It was only my second time ever in California, so of course I wanted to see the beach right away.  We headed down to a surf shack and watched the sun set with a few drinks and a lot of excitement.  By the time we rolled back to LJ’s place it was early in the morning and we were all exhausted.

And that was just the first twelve hours!  Over the next five days I had pretty much non-stop fun in the sun, all leading up to my 25th birthday.  But a good chunk of the stories are not really printable here.  So ask me about them next time you see me and I might tell you a good one.  But for now I’m happy to just remember that initial feeling of glee arriving at the beach after spending two weeks in the desert.  Thanks to LJ it was totally worth the drive!
