Just for the record, there was smoke rising from of the hood of my car today. Again. That's it. I am buying a new car. This weekend, I am leading a group of fearless city kids into a land of wild nature just north of Malibu. Actually, I just made the campground reservations. It really won't take too much leading, as the campground is practically up the road (I could ride my bike), there are showers and bathrooms, as well as a top-notch wireless Internet connection. Got to love nature. The campground is called Leo Carillo and is right on the beach. Click here to get an idea what SoCal camping can be all about.
