So you guys may remember a while back Ike and I were planning on going to Barbados during his spring break. Ike ended up bailing out on me because he wanted to go skiing instead. Well, we came up with a compromise! Ike is going to fly out here to Cali next Friday allowing me to be SoCal tour guide which I'm dying to do!
We are going to spend a couple of days here in Ventura surfing and seeing the sights. Hopefully the weather and swell will cooperate and we can get Ike on a decent wave either at Rincon or C-Street. He likes to longboard and C-Street is known as the second best longboard spot right behind Malibu. Arguably during the winter it is THE longboard spot in Cali since Malibu doesn't catch any northwest swell.
From here, we are going to head to Big Bear in the San Bernardino Mountains a couple of hours north of LA. The snow is supposed to be pretty good up there right now so hopefully it will stay that way till next week and we'll get some great conditions for skiing.
Lastly, from Big Bear we are going to head northeast through the Mojave Desert to "the party-boy's(Ike)" favorite place, Las Vegas! Party-boy will take over as tour guide from here to introduce me to the southwest's most infamous destination. Ike is going to then fly back to SC from Vegas on Thursday and I'm thinking about possibly driving back on a different route and seeing Death Valley and Sequoia National Parks but we'll see how the beginning of the week goes.
This looks to be a fun adventure and I'm looking forward to it for sure! We'll be sure to take lots of pictures and video and post'em here!
The pic below is of my Jeep's dash at 11 o'clock at night while driving though the Mojave last time! Now that's hot! I wonder how hot it was one the sun was up!?
