Good Bye SoCal, Hello Philadelphia

As my wife and I say good bye to our great friends and 8 years in Southern California, we start our journey with a little BBQ Festival at the O.C. Fairgrounds.

Our son even made the Orange County Register

On August 5, 2011 we embarked on the next adventure in our lives and drove across country to Philadelphia.

Thanks to Bill Yun from Honolulu Fish Company for shipping the Pacific Club’s fish in such sturdy boxes. It made our packing a lot easier.

Beautiful Sunny Costa Mesa, California

Good-bye sunny blue skies, no humidity, no pesky bugs and fresh sea air. We miss you dearly. We also miss our incredible friends Mike and Tina Webb, Sandy Shirgaokar, Justin Paulson, Adam Keough, and the list goes on.

5 days and numerous BBQ stops later (BBQ tour post coming soon), we stopped in North Cackalacky to see my parents and brother.

On Wednesday August 17, 2011 we rolled into Philly, our next chapter.

Welcome to Pennsylvania

I had a couple of interviews lined up already when we arrived. The interviews all went very well, and luckily I was able to pick the best position that fit me.  More on that position in a later post.
