Thank you guys for the info. I would be leaving feb 27 to get there before march 1st. I really appreciate the good info. I would love to snowboard but never have, not sure how surfing relates to snowboarding but I love to surf so hopefully that can replace it for the mean time. I quit drinking so I would be looking forward to more "outdoor" activities. It's really good to know that there really isn't any "BAD" areas Because where I am not the crime rate is high. Not so much in my neighbor hood but in the town it's self.
If car meets aren't too too far then I'm sure I would make the drive just to have some fun and meet new ppl in the area.
The salt is what really really worries me but was wondering if 6/7 months of it could really do that much damage?
