I'm typing this while aboard the eastbound Southwest Chief between Riverside and San Ber'dino CA. We had a lovely last day with Al and Dex at the beach. We found a couple of places that quasiskunk would absolutely love. The beach we went to was just to the west of the runways at LAX. There was a non-stop stream of planes taking off over the Pacific. It got even better at lunchtime when we stopped at an In-n-Out (aka murrburger) at the eastern end of LAX. We got to enjoy burgers while planes went roaring past just a couple of hundred feet (if that) above us. Good times.
