Booze Cruise in Mission Bay, San Diego, CA

Our good friend John invited us and a group of 12 friends (Jessica, Britt, Kelly, Kristen, Sara, Karin, John, Bill, Willie, Josh, Andy, & "Captain Bubba" on his new 50 foot boat yesterday for a great time of drinking partying and listening to music in the sun. It was an offer we couldn't refuse. We saw dolphins, went to Barefoot Bar near Sea World, had mimosas, champagne & cocktails, did crazy jumps off of the boat into the ocean, and hit speeds of over 50mph with Windsor's song El Mundo blasting through the stereo! (I was stoked that John happened to bring our Windsor Melting Highway cd along for the ride on his 2008 Maiden Voyage of our boat "Fast Break II". The boat had a pretty great stereo too. I guess this boat goes up to 65mph which is faster than average for those who don't know boats well. After a long day drinking, eating pastries and Cool Ranch Doritos in the sun we finally docked at the Marriott in downtown San Diego. Half of us ended up for a tasty dinner at the Olive Garden. Warm buttery garlic bread sticks. Yum. We got some cool pics and it was a great day that will go down in the books for sure.

Oh yeah, my soccer Team Hung Over managed to pull off another rough win 3 to 1 on Saturday. Off of a throw in from the side near the other team's goal I managed to run by and flick the ball over the goalie's head into the net with a sneaky header. I was pretty stoked. Tally up another goal for the Willster. Nice.

New adventures lurk ahead...

Coachella & Filter Magazine Party?
Costa Rica trip?
Catalina trip?

Not all for sure yet but definitely in the works...

So the dream is to own beach houses in all of our favorite places in the world so that we can just travel around from place when there not rented and rent them out to buy more cool beach houses!

Check out for 2 we've got so far in Playa Grande, Costa Rica & Solana Beach, CA

Our extended family also has places so far in Lake Arrowhead & Catalina Island...

Still looking for spots in:

Raglan, New Zealand

Phuket, Thailand

Bali, Indonesia

Kauai, Hawaii


Am I leaving any cool spots out?

Good times. & lots of them.

Saw the Padres beat Houston 3 to 2 at Petco Park!
Thursday, April 3rd, 2008. Day games are awesome
in the sunshine in downtown San Diego, CA. I went
with my good friend Jasen Carr, my Dad, and myself.
We had beers, hot dogs, & peanuts. It felt like a
Ferris Bueller's Day Off, especially when they
played The Beatles cover song version of Twist &
Shout during the 7th inning stretch.

I'm sort of going out of order in time because that's seems
to be how I'm remembering the last few weeks...

Yesterday my soccer team called Team Hungover won 5 to 2!
Woo hoo! I managed to put in a header goal just before the
end of the 1st half whistle blew. My friend Ignacio had a
goal too and I managed to sneakily intercept a lazy defensive
pass in the second half to put in an easy 2nd goal. We were
pretty happy with our win because we were short handed 1
player and had no substitutes. We were on.

Last night I played an acoustic bonfire show for about 20
friends down the street. We were singing Weezer, U2, etc..
and some new originals I've been kicking around 'til 2AM.

I still smell like a campfire after 2 showers!

I was a groomsman in a wedding for 2 of our best friends
Liz and Evan Kinkruz. Super fun and weddings are usually
hit and miss for me. The love is either there or it isn't.
This one, the love was definitely there. 3/29/08

We had a kick ass time partying at Yogi's in our tux's
after the wedding too!

After the excellent limo rides and wedding festivities we
went and saw our other best friends play a show at The Casbah
the following Monday. Musee Mecanique played an amazing mellow
set using instruments such as accordians, acoustic electric,
guitars, drums, all kinds of key boards, and even a hand saw
played with a violin bow. It was a night to remember especially
when we had shots with the bride and groom as they officially
signed their new wedding license with my wife Kristen as their witness.

I'm sure I've left things out. Life moves pretty fast! Geese.

Drop me a line if you're interested in "Williestock" June 28th & June 29th.
This could get crazy.
