Been busy and haven't been into the internet thing latley. Plus I've been riding...ALOT. Basicaly tring to get better. So far it's working. Anyway, in Cali the earthquakes are few and far between. I've been in S.D. for 7 years (counting the total years out to sea) and have only experienced 3 earthquakes. One of them was so minor I slepted right through it. But you are right about the housing market. That's why I'm thinking of moving to seattle. But it rains there and doesn't rain down here (hence less time to ride).
