Fly from Minneapolis to LAX on Wednesday morning the 11th. My tradition over the years has been either to go to Hollywood Park or Santa Anita since I'm a horse racing nut. But Santa Anita doesn't do live racing on Wednesdays anymore, so that's a bummer.

I'll bs that day, probably hit up Bay Cities Deli in Santa Monica, and then head back to LAX to pick up a friend when he arrives. Not sure what we're doing that night, but we're staying with a friend in Burbank.

We'll leave for Indio sometime early Thursday, and hopefully get into camp sometime that afternoon.

We'll head back to LA sometime Monday morning, and my friends have late afternoon flights home. My flight doesn't leave until midnight, so I think I'm gonna go to the Angels game. I probably won't be able to see all of it, but it'll be a nice last-minute time killer:)

I'll hit ya up Monday. I'd maybe catch the game too if my 3 friends are up for it. I know one of them would be a for sure so even if we got dropped off while the couple does their romantic dinner thing for a couple hours that would work.

I'm running in the Warrior Dash (http://warriordash.com/index.php) four days later! Check the link - it's a cool video.

If you ever have a chance to run this thing - do it! Run through a junkyard, crawl through mud, jump through fire and climb stuff - and drink beer the whole way! Massive party!
