Comments It's great to see this website because it makes me remember that thousands of people walked through the same hallways, sat in the same classrooms and hung out in the same places(Balboa Elem., CJHS & BHS) before I even came to exist in this world! We have so much history and all of us who have lived in the CZ or the city at any given point in time will always have an everlasting common bond even if we never knew each other. I haven't been home for a few years now, but for those who see this and know who I am, know that I will never forget the best years of my life and for better or worse, you were all a part of it.

Comments IT HAS BEEN ABOUT 4 YEARS SINCE I VISITED THIS SITE. THOUGHT I WOULD DROP IN AND SAY HELLO.I WAS IN THE ZONE FROM 67-74.BALBOA,GAMBOA,ANCON,AMADOR.THE SITE WAS GREAT THEN BUT IT'S EVEN BETTER NOW. SURFING THROUGH SURE DOES TAKE ME BACK. SEEING THE PICTURE OF THE SHARK NET AT AMADOR BEACH WAS KIND OF SAD I SPENT MANY A DAY THERE SWIMING AND MANY A NIGHT WATCHING PEOPLE FISH FOR AND CATCH BIG SHARK ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE NET. IT'S REALLY COOL TO LOOK THROUGH THE GUEST BOOK AND SEE FAMILIAR NAMES AND SEE WHERE THEY ARE NOW. JACKIE HARP THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE TO MY ENTRY FROM 98.WE MAY HAVE CROSSED PATHS AND DID'NT EVEN KNOW IT. I LIVED IN DENVER FROM 74-82 AND SPENT ALOT OF TIME IN BOULDER AND HIKING ON FLAGSTAFF MT. HOPE YOUR STILL DOING WELL. I'M NOT GOING TO WAIT SO LONG TO SURF BACK ON AGAIN. KEEP THIS SITE ALIVE IT'S GREAT! TAKE CARE ZONIANS. HOPE TO MEET UP WITH SOME OF YOU SOME DAY.

Comments I am considering retiring to Panama. I've been cruising the web looking for information that will REALLY tell me what Panama is like. Until I found your wonderful site with all it's great links (especially the recipes) I could only find sites that just recited line and verse of the same old crap you can read on any tourism brochure. Thanks for a site that brings Panama to life.
