Should I take Mrs Ned to California or Colorado for her birthday? (late September)
California would be Huntington Beach. Stay at the Hyatt, get a nice suite with a fire pit. Prime rib at Captain Jacks in Sunset. My brother lives there. Have an Over friend there as well.
Colorado would be Boulder. Nice hotel there (Boulderado) is all booked Beautiful scenery and killer restaurants. Maybe run into a bear while running like last time and get growled at by an elk running away from it.
