A couple of days before Thanksgiving and a couple of days after over 200MGD of sewage polluted water flowed out of the TJ River, my sons, Israel 15 and Daniel 13, and their friend Jake 15, boarded a bus in Imperial Beach with their boards, backbacks, and bicycles.
This is the text I received that night:
“All is well..roasting wieners by a roaring fire and sipping hot choco and got perfect three to four foot trestles with four people.”
If there is any reason to stop the Toll Road, it is so generations of kids can have the best adventures of their lives at Trestles/San Mateo/and San Onofre and experience California as it is supposed to be.
So thanks to all of you for “Saving Trestles” and your ongoing commitment to making sure a toll road doesn’t plow through one of the last best places on the planet.
