Hope you enjoy CA as much as I do. What part of the state are you moving to?

Oo, I'm so glad you're taking that offer and going to Eagles' Nest. There's a lot of love for that place. It seems like the sort of environment you should be in.

Just got back from an excercise class on an SUP (Stand Up Paddle).
Think Surf Board with a Paddle long enough to use while standing up.
Then think Repetition Excercises
Then put the two together.
(don't forget to add in the occasional rash of waves from the passing boats)
What a freaking BLAST!!!
Yes, I fell in a couple time. And Yes I loved it!!!
Biking home, I broke my own personal land-speed record, just trying to stay warm.... ending up by yelling out a challenge to a boat-hauling truck that I'd race him up the hill. He hunkered down raring to go (pretty much in jest, as he was staying neck and neck the whole time), but I guess I won, because he pulled off the road 2 driveways down from the top! Wuss!

For a couple of years I have been wanting to participate in the Handcar Regatta in Santa Rosa, CA. This is sort'a like a Mutant Vehicle parade, but on a railroad track, and with only human muscle power allowed.
The most difficult part, seems to me, is obtaining or building suitable wheels. Many homemade solutions tend to fall off the track. So I have been keeping an eye out for rear rail wheels, at an affordable price.
Well, last Saturday I found a set (four) for $150,-. A new set costs $1200,-, and these are still in good condition. So I got a bargain. I have the vehicle to put them on, so now I can begin modifying it for track use.
And this weekend I'm going to the Kinetic Sculpture Race in Klamath Falls, OR. For once I'm not racing, but I'm looking forward to being a spectator this time. And of course, I'm transporting two teams to the event with my bus.
So things are looking up!
