Gregg’s Place

February 18, 2009

Quote of the day: “You don’t have to be down because of your condition; you can get up and do something about it”—Darius, to students at Cathedral City High School.

The morning after our Phoenix screening, Darius and crew continued west, crossing the border into California.

We got to Palm Springs in the afternoon, where supporter Gregg Rapp had us set up in a gorgeous rental property of his. Gregg consults restaurants on how to maximize their profitability by improving their menus.

He’s got a lot of high-profile clients, so if you have a restaurant or know someone who does, definitely check out his web site.

It was our first chance to spend more than a couple days in one place since we left Athens on this six-week stretch, and Gregg (pictured, in gray) was an incredible host during our few days in Palm Springs.

Gregg coordinated with a friend who teaches at Cathedral City High School.

The school visit was a lot of fun…

and the students were awesome!

We told them we were jealous that they get to live in a place with 75-degree weather in February. They responded: “it’s cold outside!”

During the long assembly, we had a question-and-answer session, got to hear from students, and talked about the Darius Goes West forum, targeted especially at high school and middle school students.

We had a blast hanging out with everyone at CCHS. Thanks, guys!!

Back at Gregg’s place, we spent the next couple days catching up on computer work and enjoying our beautiful surroundings.

We hiked, swam, and enjoyed the views…

and phenomenal cooking by Gregg’s chef, Stephan.

Finally, we reluctantly parted with Palm Springs, rejuvenated as we continued westward. Thanks, Gregg!
