Our Brick

Greg and I sponsored a brick in downtown Capitola to help support the downtown beautification project and immortalize our impact on this small town.

Crossing Paths

Our streets may go in different directions, but we always know they'll come together many times along the way. Here's one of those times...
It's one month after graduation, I drove straight to Santa Cruz from Oakland airport to meet my family for 4th of July. My Ford Explorer there in the background is packed full of everything I own. Greg drove from Vacaville to meet up with us when we had a fortuitous encounter with this intersection.

Little did we know we'd be living together on the beach in Capitola in just a few months time.

Floating over Switzerland

This is one of my favorite pictures. Those are my feet on the bottom. I'm paragliding -- floating effortlessly and silently above Interlaken, looking at the Alps in the distance. A beautiful day and a peaceful experience.

Cinque Terre

This is the guy who set us up with our place in Monterosso. He works all summer getting people into his apartments, then takes the rest of year off to travel.

Louvre and Catacombs

The main line was long at the Louvre so I remembered a side entrance that we used a couple years ago that is for tour groups. You can see it behind us in the above picture. We just walked right pretending that we were part of the junior-high tour group ahead of us. After the Louvre we checked out the Catacombs. It's a long walk below Paris, about 5 stories down. This is where they put the bones of about a million people in the late 1700s. I've never seen so many skulls, strangely interesting.

Eurotrip Itinerary

Just after graduation I loaded up my Explorer with everything I own and am headed to the Oakland airport. I'll be parking in the American Airlines employee parking lot thanks to my Aunt, meeting up with Steve, and headed for Europe!

Building a Subwoofer

Ryan and I in the craft center building our kickin' subwoofer for Acoustics class. This class was a joke -- a great class to take in your last quarter of college. All we had to do was build this subwoofer and test that it works. Here's me sanding:
And the finished product.
Ours ended up sounding great. We bought the cheapest speaker we could find, but the enclosure made all the difference.

Ben Harper in Santa Cruz

Murph and I road-tripped to Santa Cruz where we saw Ben play at a high-school gym. We waited outside afterward for an hour until we got to meet him and talk with him for a while. Unfortunately I lost the picture that we took of Ryan and I with Ben Harper; that would have been cool to post here.
