Again thank you all for your replies. I am leaving today for 3 weeks to go to LA/LB area for CG Inspections. Will be back around the 25th Jan. By then I will have a more definite date on when we will be going over and will post.

Have a good Jan fishing! cause I will have no time while in LA/LB, maybe may go to the casting club and see what's brewing over there! If I cant log on while away I will have my brother "John Wallace" post for me.

I'll make it a point to go either way. I was just mentioning I have a soldier coming in from Afghanistan I wanted to take steelheading on his return.

And I'll forgo fishing to help him, Jerry. I sincerely doubt that I'll be able to cast, but I'll surely be able to assist should you folks decide to head to the Ford. Helping a soldier fish beats me fishing hands-down & every time.

Congrats on your retirement. I will not be in Washington until April otherwise I would try to join you. Thank you for your service.
My brother is out of town and asked me to post, we will be at Rocky Ford Feb. 21 and 22. The more that come the more fun. We will leave early Friday morning and get a motel that night. Will leave 22 around 5pm to come home. Hope all can come, can't wait to meet you all. We might try to go back in May before he leaves for Indiana. So lets go have fun, catch fish and party!!
Been talking with my brother. He can't wait to get on the water and fish. He is still in Cailf. He hasn't much time to do anything. Hope to see you all there!

Hello all!

So glad that a few of you will be able to show!

I arrived home yesterday a little early from my inspections in California, not because I was done, in fact had to leave early do to got the crap beat out of me in Ventura/Oxnard area. A buddy of mine and myself, me being proud of Seattle and wearing my Seahawks jersey, went to Buffalo Wild Wings, watched the two football games. Then decided to go over to TGIF's for an appetizer (food) we met a ex fellow Coastguardsman, who is now a special agent. Was great talking to him, so he decided to show us around town a little. My buddy was ready for bed (9pm) so we took him to the hotel and I went out with Antonio.

We had parked in the lower parking of a garage, his truck was right at the entrance, so we walked around a little. Went to two places, bought him a drink, I did not cause I had a few during the game, but in the last 4 hours I had, none, zero, nothing. Anyways Now around midnight, we decided to go home and walked back to his truck.

Well that is the last thing I remember.

He was getting his keys out of his pocket, when all I heard was yelling, three guys went after Antonio, two guys on me. I remember getting punched in the face from my left side, I turned punched once and it was lights out for me. Next, I remember waking up and seeing Antonio on the ground with blood all over. Sorry if semi graphic, but this is freaking crap. Anyways, I got up and went to Antonio, checked to ensure he was breathing and yes he was. I started to yell for help when couple of young boys rode in on the BMX bikes and called 911. I couldn't cause my phone was no where to be found. Antonio was in bad shape. Police and EMS came and took us to the hospital. For me, I have a left black eye swollen shut, scrapes and cuts on face, left chest area pain from either getting kicked or punched, right hand swollen from either my punch or falling to ground, large lump and bruising on left back of scull, think from hitting ground or where I was hit from behind with something, could go on but enough said. My necklace was broken and layed 20ft from us, rings are gone, but wallet intact nothing missing. Phone was found 30ft from us laying by the stairwell area.

Antonio is similar, but worse, prior to my discharge I found out he has numerous fracture in his face and skull. Also he received numerous stiches to his eyes, cheeks and top of head. I am keeping in contact with him for updates.

One thing I do remember before it was lights out for me was I heard " F " you Seahawks. Just do not understand people. During the time while watching the game at BWW, it was so friendly, we cheered for 49's when they did good and 49er fans cheered when we did good. A lot of hand shakes after the game. Still don't understand, why are people sucks A holes???

So why did it happen? Who the heck knows, just went to wrong part of town and some stupid people we ran across. Please excuse my writing but hard to see and type. This has taken awhile for me to write, cause I have to keep deleting the F bombs, four to every sentence.

Police report was taken, boys on bikes said they saw numerous males running from parking area. They has no real description, except for what they were wearing. Really sucks, these guys will never be found unless they start bragging to friends and someone decides to do right and turn them in.

So, by the time Feb comes, I will be ready to go fish! So please come if you can and lets enjoy the outdoors!

Wow William.... Glad you're okay in that nothing more serious happened (that giants fan was put in a coma). Some people are complete idiots. Holy shit.
