    Tell your "friend" Disney is located in California,P.I. is the location of Sand fleas & REAL Drill Instructors not Disney tour guides!.....When I flew out of Diego airport I'd look out the window at Disney Diego and never saw anyone on the grinder marching, must have been lunchtime? a.k.a. chow

    That's for sure, Pat. No hills like that in the part of NC where we were. ITR was rougher out there because of that.
