    Well I'm tied up in a conference at the Mission Bay Hilton all next week starting Saturday, but the following weekend would work for me. Anyone want to get together?

    If I might make a suggestion-try the zoo. Worked quite nicely in Boise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZl2oh4goWY

    Iwas amusedwhen the lady from Wisconsin said"you don't see that where we're from," since Wisconsin is OC from what I can tell (absurdly restricted OC, but even so).

    Our World Famous San Diego Zoo is right next door to a city school, so it would not work.
    The Wild Animal Park however...

    Nope, there is a school right on the property. It is the only zoo/park in the world with an elementary school on the grounds. I almost had to go to that school, it is called "The Annex"

    That's got to be nice for the kids, but man...I'd never have guessed. So much for that idea, and that's a shame, since it produced a fair amount of positive publicity here.

    A quick search of San Diego Tourist Attractions on google opened up a wealth of possibilities though. If ya all are anything like me, you don't even see the tourist attractions near where you live. I lived near SF for about 30 years, and never did get up there to see Alcatraz...

    Unless that zoo in Boise has undergone drastic changes since I last saw it in the mid 90's, it's not quite fair to use it in the same sentence with the SD Zoo.

    It's certainly not as big as the San Diego Zoo, by any means, but other than that I've no clue what you're talking about. Fair? Are we speaking the same language?

    YOu should see all the murals and crap that are all over the school. It is actually pretty sweet.

    I dated a girl who worked at the Boise zoo., this would have been around '92.I sawthe zooa couple times, frankly it was sad.

    You know how sometimes, in any zoo, you see animals exhibiting that repetitive movement that essentially indicates insanity? Well, there was a lot of that throughout.

    I'd like to think the conditions have improved, but at that time, that tiny little zoo was pretty much limited to some insane mammals and some rescued raptors. That, and a dedicated staff doing the best they could with the limited resources available to them at the time.

    Or maybe I'm remembering it all wrong, and everthing was fine. In any case I certainly didn't intend my comments to be a personal insult to you or anyone else. Please accept my apology for a less-than-polite posting.

    RAPTORS?! I think the Boise zoo wins... the dinosaurs are not extinct!

    OT-

    Raptors, my friend, refer to predatory birds such as hawks, falcons, eagles and owls....Not the bipedal, taloned dinosaurs depicted in Jurrasic Park.

    Huh... learn somethin' new every day... sorry for the slight derail... to get back on topic:

    There are lots of dangerous animals in the zoo, even if you don't count the humans that may stalk their prey in such a venue. I think it would be an interesting location for an open carry event, as it may get people thinking about the fact that we need to defend ourselves from men and beasts.

    I guess the Zoo's out due to school property. I'm cool with the Gaslamp District, or PB- Hey how about MB? We can stroll up and down the walk, interact with the tourons...hell let's bring fishing rods. I've never been skunked there, always get at least a few perch. Good halibut fishing there, if the tide's right.

    We did the PB/MB last time, did the walk all the way down the boardwalk too. Someone said it was only a mile so we went for it found out it was more like a three mile one way walk. But we did it both ways or at least most of us did LOL.
