San Diego Firewood

This is a post mainly for my benefit, to get a scrap of paper off my desk.

Last fall, I searched far and wide for a cheap supply of firewood.  I found a post in either the Reader or Union-Tribune, called the number, and drove out to El Cajon to see what he had to offer.  There was a nice gentleman there, I think his name was Norman, and he had huge boxes full of hardwood, both split logs and whole limbs.  He offered me $40 to fill up half of the back of my Pathfinder, somewhere between 30-40 cubic feet.

I reached him at (619) 593-0319 and set up a time to meet him at 780 La Rochi Way, El Cajon, CA.

Anza Borrego Weekend

The San Diego Crew had a desert weekend a few weeks ago. Highlights included navigating through the Anza Borrego wilderness, exploring mud caves, surviving Diablo Dropoff and the subsequent boulder-strewn canyon, watching a Jeep flip and re-flipping it while gas was pouring out of the tank, and raising hell at the Lazy Lizard and Iron Door. Only a few pictures made it through all the craziness.

My 30th Birthday

This past weekend I was treated to a fantastic birthday surprise – a four hour trip around Mission Bay in a rented pontoon boat. Here are some pictures from the day.

Hiking Lawson Peak

In October 2005, I hiked to the top of Lawson Peak in San Diego County. Here are a few pictures from that trip.
