Friday--November 15, 2013

Leaving on a jet plane... Mrs Blog and I are back to New Hampshire today. We enjoyed our mini-vacation here in San Diego. Lots to do in sunny Southern California. Gotta ask Todd Bankhead some time if being a native makes the freeway traffic easier to deal with. We get into Manchester early in the AM Saturday and then I've got to turn around and get to Gillette.  Whew! I'll be needing a vacation from the vacation.

UMass football is doing a lot of good things. Hopefully when we'll start winning so those things will be recognized.

Being a native only makes it easier because you know when not to get on the freeway. Fortunately my wife and I don't deal with traffic because we travel in the opposite direction of where the traffic is heading for work. We have some great beaches where we live in Encinitas, so all our activities on the weekend are local, and not spent battling the crowds. The San Diego area is paradise in terms of traffic compared to LA, not sure if you went up there, but I wouldn't advise it. Glad you had fun.......the crowds aren't ideal, I blame all you east coasters for flocking out here. There are a ton of UMass people (always welcome) and other transplants that live here.
