      Well after much thought and debating I'm fairly certain I won't be joining y'all down there this year. I wanted to go but I just don't think the tanks are in a good enough place to be able to withstand the week or so of neglect it would take to recover.

      That being said have fun and be safe y'all. Also take lots of pictures and hope you all find something sexy for your tanks.

      :D it's tomorrow!

      We're rolling out at the asskrak of dawn to meet nav in santa clara.

      Rules for being in my car
      1. You must do your best to have fun during this 6.5 hour car ride.
      2. Periods of awkward silence must be limited to a maximum of 10 minutes.
      3. I get to taste any yummy snacks you are eating.
      4. If youfart in my car, I get a frag of your coral.
      5. If you did not have fun at Reef-a-palooza, I am leaving you in Costa Mesa.

      Well unlike mike @Enderturtle and his carpool gang we are leaving at 2-3ish this afternoon and heading down as I am more of a night owl then an early bird....lol

      I am supper excited and have looked at the vendor list and made notes of certain questions that I have for vendors so that I don't forget as I will most likely be drooling most of the time...lol

      Also don't forget you coolers if you decide to pick up any corals or livestock

      LMAO at Enderturtle's car rules. (Perfect for my middle schoolers, too.) He did not specify music selection - we may be hearing about that...
      Hope everybody has fun down there!

      Damn should have seen if anyone wanted to pile into my bus, although that thing sucks diesel like no ones business and the cost of fuel even split 13 ways would probably end up costing less than a plane ticket :D

      Although the bus is currently parked at the farm.
