      Hi Sam,



      I'm just up the 101 from you, so my reports also mention Los Padres National Forest a

      bunch. When I read your owner review something struck me - and I've done the very same

      thing! - but we should probably both avoid writing "the" Los Padres in future reports. It's

      very southern California of us, but also ridiculously redundant! It's like when people write

      Sierra Nevada Mountains. Grrr...that redundancy boils my blood. So we just might be

      bugging someone with our extra SoCal "the"s everywhere!
