Baltimore Osten Family Visit

The Baltimore Ostens were in town for a summer vacation.
  • Saw the Cardinals pound the Angels
  • Racing at K1 Speed Irvine
  • Fireworks!
  • Plenty of Moonlight Beach and Rico's
  • Walked around Old Town San Diego
  • Kids got wristbands at Boomers
  • Kevin and Robyn got some rounds in at Encinitas Ranch and Carlsbad Crossings
  • Kevin's birthday dinner at Lonestar
  • Tour of March Field Museum with commentary from someone who flew many of the planes.  Lunch afterwards at Perris Valley Airport watching the skydivers. 
  • Lots of food and games

Kindle and More Books

I recently got a Kindle primarily as a way to take some reading material on my upcoming JMT trek.  However, I have found I really enjoy reading on it.  The e-ink display is much easier to read than a smartphone or computer screen.  I have bought a couple books and borrowed some from SDCL.

Two Week Warning

It is now two weeks to the JMT.  I received confirmation from Muir Trail Ranch that they have my resupply bucket.  It only took 4 days for it to get there from Encinitas.
