Roughin It

I guess roughing it would be a bit of an overstatement. Nonetheless, living in a tent hasn't provided time for posting here. I have done some exploring around the area; Napa is a gorgeous place. My first week at my new job was rather regular: basic training and harvest preparation. Despite some negatives, I've been rather enjoying camping at night; Napa Valley's atypically mild this season keeps night temperatures above 55 degrees Fahrenheit and days usually maxing out in the low-80's. The weather has greatly affected the growing season; wine grape harvest has been pushed back several weeks (some sparkling wine producers would already be harvesting by now).
After working all week, I headed down to San Francisco for another weekend with Hayes and the Barret twins (I stopped through on the way up from San Diego last weekend, too).  I had a quick surf in small onshore conditions at Ocean Beach on Saturday; while it was far from a great session, it was nice just to get wet. Life of an inlander has been hard to accept.
