San Diego. Yeah, I love it here. Sunny all year, moderate temps, hot chicks. Not too shabby.
But it's 2.5 hours to Bear mountain. Great for park, but gets pretty boring quickly.
HoboMaster, at least those 3 hours gets you to some really cool places. Sierra, Squaw, Alpine, Northstar, etc.
Closest major resort is Mammoth and that's 6-7. Yeah price I pay to live in a nice beach city.
Seriously dude I feel you, I'm from Fullerton in orange county. Your drive to bear is only a half hour longer than me? weird. But for sure hatin how far mammoth is...mega bust.
