We went the week before Christmas. I wish we could have gone early and stayed later, but I had a concert on December 15, and Christmas is always on December 25 doncha know.
Scott was feeling pretty bad driving down and for the first half of the week, being on the tail end of a bad cold. Other than that, it was a great trip. We still hiked a lot, rode bikes, took a trip to the naval aviation museum, and had a nice visit with my sister. The weather was cooler than we would have liked that week, high 50s, low 60s, but they had snow at home, so we still preferred being here than there.
Also, he did not go in his camper one single time. That's because Scott worked so hard on it to make it beautiful and comfy. He'd rather shiver in the cold than be appreciative of anything the Human did for him, even if he has to suffer a bit.
