    ... Circle was down a gravel road off Hwy 95, east of I-10 at La Posa South. The fee is $40 for a maximum stay of two weeks and is validated by a sticker for your rigs. This sticker can be used in all the BLM camping sites. We found the sign for the Magic Circle, disconnected Jimmy and drove around until we found a decent site. An older couple on their ATV rode up to help us as we had started to set up outside the clothing optional area. We followed them ...

The Holland America ships are laid out basically the same except for minor things depending on their size. ...

    Hola. So last few days have been kinda fun. Yesterday I went down to la jolla with sam, Jen and irmaya. The surf was pretty small but still managed few waves.

Not bad but ya know no fruit or veggies. Anyway I settled for a so so burrito from the store next door. Shawn and Gnarly came and picked me ...
