    Why did you move?

    I miss southern California. I grew up there. I know exactly what you mean by nothing but rocks and cacti. My friends and I used to climb the mountains when I was only 10-11 years old in Lakeside/Santee. We would be miles from home. We'd take water and snacks, and we'd spend all day getting up and down the mountain. It took some skill at times. Kinda spooky though being up so high when we were so little, but we felt invincible. Our parents were clueless about what we were doing. Back then, things were different.

    We have a chapter in Spain if you want to join it too.
