Hi Everyone,

I am giving "My Journey to Everest" presentation at the new Tustin REI Store on Saturday, December 4th at 7 PM.

Attendance is free but you need to register due to limited seating. You do not need to be a REI member.

Here is the link to register:

Hope you can make it smile

Cindy, if you should find your way to Fresno (and yes, we have an REI!) I'm sure we could round up a dozen bottoms, and will most certainly buy you a beer.

And I'll buy you dinner!

Seriously, if you ever travel north, keep us in mind, we might be able to help get a presentation scheduled.

We could probably get you some newspaper coverage, too.

SteveC, What if she orders a Yeti?

Cindy, is there a minimum number of bottoms necessary for you to appear at the REI?

Everybody, if you want to and can come to Fresno for the presentation, just wave your hand in the air here...

Hand waving...

New "Tustin" REI? Did the Santa Ana remodel?

I used to work at the Santa Ana REI a couple of years ago.

I have it on my calendar!!

The Santa Ana store is moving to a new location, the Tustin Market Place. Jamboree & the 5 fwy.

Due to the economy, a lot of stores have closed in this mall. I'm guessing REI got a sweet deal to increase the sq. ft. (nearly double the size I believe) for very reasonable rent.

Hey @ti2d,

I love the location where you reside. Did Johnny Carson ever find you guys?

The Santa Ana REI moved to Tustin on October 16th. I've been dying to see the store, but still haven't stopped in.

Primo location!

Being a former Irvine/Tustin resident, my best guess is that they are in the former Ciruit City? Please advise if I am wrong.

If Best Buy (former IKEA) shuttered, WHOA! Next to Black Anus...Did I say that? Angus.

Wazzu (Cougar)...please advise.

I haven't been by the new site yet. But I think you are correct about the old Circuit City location. The last time I was in the Santa Ana store, the person at the register mentioned the new store would have a second floor. The old Circuit City store would be the only one that I can think of that would have the room for a second floor.

Glad to know you are up on the college mascots of the Pac 10, soon to be Pac 12.

Wazzu, did you register? The seats are going. I'll be back later. Have to feed the family smile

I would love to come up and meet you all. Maybe I can arrange something in late Spring. I have to schedule everything around my teaching schedule and we are climbing Aconcagua during winter break.

Wagga, How many bottoms!?! Too funny!

Cool!

FYI: They are having the Grand Opening on Nov 16th (I think) and it is in the old Linens and Things location. Circit City will be a 24 Hour Fitness.

Hi Cindy,
I'm a newbie here, but I seem to be afflicted with much of the same obsession as the rest here. Loved reading your stories here.

And I'll be there on December 4th.

(a little bit of a homecoming for me too...I went to elementary school in Tustin).

Tom

Got good friends who are Bruins (BruinDave and BruinJane). Got other friends who are Huskies, Beavers, Ducks, Sun Devils, Trojans, Wildcats, Indian, and Bears. No friends who are Buffaloes or Utes, yet.

I am glad that REI-Santa Ana moved to TMP. The old location on the Double Nickel was too "warehouse" looking. Parking was good. Getting to REI required a SPOT or GPS if going north on the 55 and then crossing over. South offramp exit was a zip. Plus there wasn't any other place to shop. With TMP, you have options.

I haven't been in OC since July 2007. I lived there from 1985 to 2007. Now, I live in the holy city of Coarsegold (aka Fuggowhee). My wife and I frequent the REI Fresno. Guess it is a good reason to visit OC.

I also heard there was a great seafood place at the former MCAS Tustin LTA.

Cindy, hope you do venture up this way to the geocenter of CA. I am sure your presentation and your life story will spark a lot of interest in hiking, climbing, and the like. N2*Gr8YdOpn.

Also, Steve C, wagga and I (my wife included and especially), would be honored to meet you. Imagine to be sitting next to someone who has been "up there." The only other person my wife and I know is the guy who married us...Kurt Wedberg. Also, if you like Zappos and Macy's and whatnot...oh...please say you don't!grin

Anyhooooooooo....

You are/will be in good company...just be sure to bring your waggadictionary!

Have fun...

Cindy-
Maybe we could make small name tags with our "board" names so that we can easily recognize each other at the event.
If you are on "both" Whitney boards and use different names, put both on the tag.
Just a thought... cool

Too cool! There are only 9 seats left for the presentation and there will lots of people from the two Whitney Boards. I think wearing name tags with there board names and real name on them so we know who is who is a great idea.

I think you will know me: Cindy Abbott laugh
