View Full Version : San Diego

Going to San Diego for a conference next week. Actually, we'll be staying at Rancho Bernardo north of town. I'll have all day Monday free as well as the evenings on other nights. Any suggestions on activities? Any good wineries in the area? Any good parks/trails for hiking in the mountains? Casinos? Any waterskiing in the area? I don't golf.

Gaslamp district down town is awesome, old towne is great to visit. If you like Mexican fast food go to Santana's and get a burrito. They are to die for, not good for the ticker but damn they taste good!

Take a ride through La Jolla (La Hoi ya), it's awesome!

Or go to Tijuana and find the donkey show! You will probably find a donkey that's spay painted like a zebra and looks like it's praying for some car to put him out of his misery.

Probably going out for some evening runs next Friday you are more then welcome to come. Also if you feel like sticking around were are going Sunday morning Nov 19th. I too have someone flying in to town for the week. The more the merrier!

Thanks for the offer Slink, but I'll be heading home Friday a.m. and (hopefully) skiing on the home lake Saturday. I really appreciate the offer though. Where do you ski?

Here's an idea. I fly into SD at 6:00 pm Sunday but don't really need to be at the hotel until Monday night. I could be in Vegas by midnight Sunday. Is it worth the trip?

Ron Burgundy (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002071/): Discovered by the Germans in 1904, they named it San Diego, which of course in German means a whale's ******.
Veronica Corningstone (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000775/): No, there's no way that's correct.
Ron Burgundy (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0002071/): I'm sorry, I was trying to impress you. I don't know what it means. I'll be honest, I don't think anyone knows what it means anymore. Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.
Veronica Corningstone (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000775/): Doesn't it mean Saint Diego?
