since I can't figure out how to message you in here, I'll comment. SO serendipitous that you reached out just now, on the way home last night, I was being followed by a woman in a Prius who looked very much like you in the rearview mirror. I slowed down to see if I had to bust you for coming to santa cruz without reaching out, but from the side.....
Not you.
