I guess what I should have said is that you're not likely to get the sort of intimate, personal responses you're looking for as most people don't have the inclination to take the time to write up a whole paragraph of two about what their experiences have been and then sending it on to a relative newcomer here. Doesn't mean that they're ignoring you or anything. It's just that you might have bettre luck getting a feel for things by checking out the site yourself and narrowing your request down to perhaps the 'Regional' section where you'll probably kill two birds with one stione (personal experiences and contacting people close by in or near San Diego)
thanks for the replies.
