30,000 sf of paradise
The elevators to the underground parking are legendary. They need to take those. The land lord dont want to scrape em any way.
Never made it to that one. Use to visit the one in San Francisco and Berkeley every once in awhile. Berkeley was nice, because Rasputin's was practically next door.
Was stationed at Mare Island for training back in the ‘80s. Loved the proximity to Berkeley. What was the great old movie theater on the main drag? Saw many a great classic movie there, including Abel Gance’s Napoleon.
Just ran across this thread and hope there are few memberships open. I retired last January at 65 1/2 while my wife was still working and became bored quickly. Went back to work part-time and love it. Lots of free time AND a few new challenges to keep my mind awake.
I’m making a few of the more expensive changes/additions to my system in preparation for “full-time retirement “, which will definitely be after my youngest daughters wedding this summer and my wife’s knee replacement in Spring. We are both in pretty good shape, thank God.
Committing to do more for others as well as myself (staying in shape). There’s a lot to do!
There’s plenty of room, welcome.
Wish I would have had my retirement shit together more than I did. We're down in FL for a few weeks and I really wish I could have bought a house down here so I could spend half the year. It's great to be able to be outside in Feb and go biking and swimming!
Might go down to Key West cycling tomorrow, traffic is a bitch down there!
@parman , my wife and I talk about this often. Wouldn’t a place in Texas for the winter and back in Chicago for the summer be wonderful? But we lived it up in our “middle age” and didn’t put aside as much as we could. But we have no regrets as we thoroughly enjoyed it, and we’re doing fine now, but do have to endure the Chicago winters.
Oh well, put on a sweater and enjoy the spectacular summers by Lake Michigan.
Who need s to go anywhere but home. I like people. The less I see em' the more I
like em'. This has my wife worried. For me, it's less stress if I don't go out into the world of I (eye) people.
I like your attitude mkane. And 103 miles north of SF is some pretty country to make due in. Just don't let your worried wife worry you.
Sunday we had 60 foot waves on the North Shore. People went to see and it became a zoo. A friend and I tried to go up to Haleakalā to play in the snow. Unfortunately the main road was closed. Still closed this morning. May try a different tactic later.
It is spectacular on the west side of MI at Lake MI, DAMN! I should have bought a place there also!! South Haven, Holland, Grand Haven, St Joe they're all fantastic!
Ever get around to that side of the lake?
I did not know it snows in HI, learn something everyday on AK
The storm passed. View from the front of the house.
What are we seeing?
Low level clouds?
If that's snow, you are in trouble
That is snow. It came down to 6,200 feet. Haleakalā is 10,000 feet. Lowest in recorded history.
Snow and 60' waves on Maui! I read that the winds were way above 100 mph to boot.
Mauna Kea on the Big Island had gust up to 191 mph and may have broken the lowest temperature recorded in Hawaii at 12°F.
That polar vortex is really getting around this year. I just want the damn snow to stop now please.
We were tired of the polar vortex winter also so we came down to the Keys for a break. This morning we're having a tropical storm, can't believe how hard it's raining!
