I was all excited about this. Move to CR, surf and work on advanced propulsion. Then I saw how far inland Liberia is. :(

How far inland can you get on costa rica?  As long as the beach is a couple hour drive for weekend trips it's all good.

Haha, you make a good point, but I wanna surf in the morning before work, like I do now, because that's when the wind and conditions are best.

Unfortunately, even if I were to reach the top level of my company (and doing so would mean a lot less surfing now ;) ) I still couldn't afford a place near the beach out here. I'm sick of getting up at 4AM to squeeze in a 2 hour session before dashing off to work. Ugh, insisting on working on rockets is so geographically-limiting. :( Still, better this than building better air-conditioners. I miss the cape...

Still, for a shot at working on VASIMR I might just hafta become a weekend beachgoer...

Find a sport that is great where you live, I used to be an avid sailor/windsurfer, but I had to move inland. I now climb and bike instead and am looking forward to the day I can afford a paraglider.

Still if I ever move near the ocean again...
