    I'd be jealous too if it didn't involve packing everything up at one end and unpacking it all at the other end! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Yep! Moved from the Bay Area to Virginia :D luckily most of our stuff is in a uhaul box that we can store at uhaul until we're ready for it (for a monthly fee of course :))

    Yea we are very excited about the move :) we both have a lot of family in VA and are excited to be back. California was getting a little too on fire for our liking :D unfortunately it wasn't a very fun trip, no time for stops or detours. We did 8-9 hour days for 6 days straight but now we can rest and relax for a few days before the final push to Richmond (our final destination)

    Sounds like a hell of a slog, but worthwhile. Hope VA is good to you.

    So VCU has this big indoor arena called the Siegel Center, went there a couple years back with a high school FIRST Robotics team I mentor. Across the street is a Jamaican jerk chicken place that, if you are in the area, you really should try. Outstanding. Not beer-related though...

    It rained a lot last night, which might be why the water was so brown. But we get pretty frequent summer showers here, and the water levels are high :) the opposite of the problem we were having in California!!

    Water is good. I drove past you last week on my way from NY. In the rain...

    Make sure you check out the pipeline some time. Richmond is a great city
