    Wait til Dawn Patrol is in PR for his honeymoon. The one swell he gets will come at the same time as when his new bride wants to have some quality time.... You jinxed yourself gringo...
    HAHA, yeah it would be my luck huh? Only my soon to be wife is the one who booked this trip and is totally on board. We'll be there for an entire week, and she knows out of that I'll be surfing at least 3, maybe 4 of those mornings / afternoons. No issues here "gringo", and there will still be plenty of "quality time", I don't plan on surfing ALL day every day, just some of it. It's all about setting expectations and compromise, something we seem to do well with when it comes to these things, hence why we are getting married (amongst many other reasons), and she's a big reason i'm able to get in the water so much.

She was never really down, but it needed to happen and I convinced her by offering her this compromise: if after 3-5 years of living here, you don't like it, I'll take you home. And, that's what happened.

    Maybe something like that would work for you?
    sounds plausible...and to who said about expenses. Also, with the ot and sd it would come out just above 50k. I'm just looking to rent too, not buy a house. worse comes to worse i could get a part time job. My sister lives in OC, I'll get the full scoop.

    OK I may have gotten you mixed up with my surf trips with women.... Don't go by that....

    Kid Rock-
    Damn glad to see you posting today. I saw a couple of your brothers went down - was hoping it wasn't you.
    Did you ever decide where to take the wife for her birthday?

    Best thing about being a surfer in DC is Dulles. Learn it, Use it, live it.
    No doubt, 2.5 hours to Ocean City, 4 hours to el Salvador

    Yeah I've been doing it for two years now. Really isn't a bad trip especially in the winter.

    Just trying to be funny bud.

    Super Fish, if you move to SD, you can go to SoCal's Camp Pendleton, much better version than VB's
