Crescent City Surf Trip

Mark, Greg, Rob and Craig getting ready to break on through the fog. You could hear the surf breaking but could not see it as the fog was too thick. Mark said it would be worth the paddle out because "When it breaks at Garth's it's usually good". Mark was right, all was good, until he ran over Craig and put him out of commission.

The Redding boys check out South Beach.

Greg catches one of the little peaks rebounding off the jetty.

Rob backside, getting ready to pull into the pit !

Big Screen TV For Less

Big screen TV on the cheap (relatively). That's the Packers winning on the 8 foot wide 5 foot tall projected image ! The projector is a Infocus 4805 that can be had for under $1000. The projector is being fed a High Definition signal from a DirectTV satellite. The image is projected on to a unaltered textured wall painted a light beige color. It looks awesome in person, the image is so bright you cannot see any of the texturing until you get upclose, at normal viewing distance the texture is undetectable. DVDs also look excellent and you get the theater experience without all the annoyances( cell phones, talking, inappropriate audience reactions, ect.) So, for under a grand for the projector you can have a TV measured in feet not inches.
