Hello Kitty and Princess Anika joined forces to Conquer Soledad

Pickles, Flyingelvis, Hello Kitty and Princess Anika were on a little family vacation in Sandy Eggo CA. The vacation got off to a very memorable start; Monday morning, Sept 15, 2008, while walking about town in LaJolla looking for a nice place to enjoy a family breakfast … the headlines on the San Diego Tribune caught my eye … Lehman Bros backrupt, Merrill Lynch sold to Bank of America (to avoid bankruptcy), $80 billion dollar AIG bailout by the government to avoid a catastrophic default and collapse of insurance policies …hmm, vacation, but maybe I should still pay attention to this! Well, we can all better now see that there really was nothing to all that financial mumbo gumbo. More importantly, the week saw Hello Kitty and Princess Anika complete their first summit cheese summit, Mt. Soledad, LaJolla Ca and join the accelerating international movement known as Summit Cheeseburger.com.

Unfortunately by Friday, the day of our triumph, Pickles had come down with a cold and Hello Kitty, Princess Anika and Flyingelvis had to attempt the expedition on their own. We gathered supplies at a Burger King (if you can’t tell from the pictures) on the campus of UCSD. We climbed aboard the might Grand Caravan, put the pedal to the meddle – well, maybe not, there were kids on board! After a brief drive through Dr. Seuss’ old ‘hood we achieved the summit.

A military ceremony prohibited us from climbing the steps to the cross, but we found another comfortable stop on top and enjoyed the Sandy Eggo sun and views while finishing off the team’s mission.

Great time had by all.
