    Welcome aboard from Florida. We were all newbie at one time, well maybe not all. If you haven't yet go check out Shug's videos. Most of your questions will be answered there are at least you'll have a better idea of what to ask. We're all here to help. Enjoy the fun!

    Welcome to HF. We need more SoCal hangers.

    Welcome from Arkansas.

    I'm jealous of you californians. I love the state. Recently spent a week out there near your neighborhood. Took the pch from la to sf, and hiked many trails along the way. You guys got it made, man. My first triathlon was at zuma beach in Malibu many years ago. It was also my first dunk in the pacific.

    I'm out there for depositions and other business occasionally and always take in some hiking.

    Lotso places to hang. Have fun.
