Hometown: Long Beach
November 11, 2011
Hello, I sometimes tell people you can tell people from LA because they don't show up if there is one cloud in the sky.
I love the variety of things possible to do on weekends without needing to shovel out snow to leave home. I can play beach volleyball year round and play about 45 days a year for a spectacular workout most of the time. A pilot introduced me to doing aerobatics over the ocean of Long Beach. Doing loops were a blast. I took a kayak class and paddled down the lower Kern River with a classmate on a four day weekend and had a blast.
More people that show up when they say they will. In two years I plan to buy a sailboat around 40 feet long to outfit to live on year round. First trip leg is LA-Panama canal and San Blass Islands in Panama. Next legs planned are: Belize, Texas, Florida Keys and eventually Ireland and Europe. Europe has roughly 3,000 miles of navigation rivers and canals they used before roads were practical. I cannot promise how long the traveling will last but I want many people to visit to add to the fun. Anyone want to play beach volleyball or learn to play with doing practice drills like in a volleyball class? Show up for 8 weeks and become a advanced beginner. I play beach volleyball about 45 Sundays a year at Ocean Park Beach, Santa Monica. And may add playing midweek at the Santa Monica Pier for a more balanced workout.
I'm an American but lived in Japan for 18 months and lived in the Philippines for 6 months.

Thanks! I have a stress fracture myself that has been acting up. I was hoping it was healed after 6 months of rest, but it doesn't seem like it :/
It looks like I'll be out for a couple more months....
Wow. I'm so sorry pal. I only now saw your post on my wall. I'm just now starting to really get into meetup. My apologies!
Hi Charles! Thanks for the offer way back in May, I just now noticed that I had messages on my profile. I took some time off of VB thanks to a tibial stress fracture, but I want to get back into the game soon. Still want to practice some set, bump and spike drills? Cheers and happy Thanksgiving!!
Thank you for your message. I moved to Montana but might be back in LA sometime next year. Maybe I'll see you then.
Hi charles! Just got your message, thanks for the info and invites! Let me know when the next events are coming up. I love the water and everything to do with the outdoors, and meeting new people. See you soon!
I don't have the balls just the lines
I may not be there tomorrow either
Who is hosting?
Hi Charles thanks very much for the offer, I have tried volley ball but I have delicate wrists and find it too painful to play. I prefer to keep to my ski and power walking on beaches. I am open to other low impact fitness activities, ciao for now Amira
Hi, thank you for the invite. I wish I could come but I unfortunately work during those hours. I will keep it in mind if I ever can.
I just got your message. I know I really want to come to the beach and have some fun learning/ doing some sand volleyball drills and meeting having fun hanging with others at the same time. I'm going to plan on coming this Sunday or Saturday (what time?). My arm was/is injured & still wrapped up but better & doesn't hurt So now I'm able to play no excuse:) so hey if you can/want just let me know when again. I'll probably ride my bike. Thanks again. Hope to meet & hangout soon. Bye
Hi Charles, sorry I don't really get on the web version of this much to see your messages. Anyway I would like to come out more but right now my schedule the next few weeks is hectic. Yes bell's are great (as I am soon to be flying a 206B3) but my love has always been for Eurocopter (I have time in the AStar AS350B2 in the Grand Canyon) - I would love to make the next meet up as soon as I can. Cheers!
