After a very nice visit with Dean and Randi it was time to move on.

Although I had been planning to head north, Keith Voegele, a.k.a. Shaggy, got in contact with me, so I decided to head back to San Diego for an evening to visit with him.

For those of you who know Keith, he seems to be doing fine, doing some work for another internet company. He's moved to another aprtment near this huge Mormon tabernacle right off of I-5.

I'm happy to report that Keith has still pretty much avoided owning anything. He has a 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment. In it are one table, a few pillows and small rugs, a sleeping pad and sleeping bag, some clothes, and a variety of alcoholic beverages. This is a person who has a Master's in Biology and a Doctorate in Computer Science. And not much of anything else.

We went out for a bite to eat, a few drinks, and toured the San Diego boardwalk/beach area. There are a lot of, umm, "interesting" people that hang out on the beach.

Keith works strange hours - a few hours in the morning, then several hours late at night. He went off to work, Iwent back to his place and read, then fell asleep.
