    Somehow Provo, Utah comes to mind when you say this. But I think we are all looney in general. ;-)


    In another note: I'm thrilled to be going to LA. I used to hate traveling but now I travel to do something I love and I'm really excited. I hope I get to explore some and possibly get a few lessons in with some awesome coaches in the area.

    Utah! Nationals in 2003, I think. We heard there was a restaurant 2 blocks away... But we went on the street and the blocks were super blocks, equivalent to 10 NYC blocks! La live has this same issue...

    That's the thing. It was possible to grab a bite between heats in Baltimore.
