Denver Wade Tours Camarillo

At Cronies Camarillo for Breakfast

Denver was the Offensive Line Coach for the Italian Football League's Catania Elephants in Sicily again this season. I first met Denver in Catania when he first held that same position for us in 2009 when I was Catania's Head Coach.

Denver, who attended Wabash College, Home of the Little Giants, just returned to the U.S. from Italy a few days ago to attend a wedding in Indiana. After the wedding he and his former teammate Seth Tichenor, got into Denver's car to take a road trip across the country in the middle of one of the most intense heat waves in recorded history.

Last night they booked a room for a night in Camarillo's Casa Contreras Bed and Breakfast. We sat around for hours talking about a wide variety of topics as usual before retiring for the evening.

This morning it was off to Cronies for a round of their internationally famous, oversized Breakfast Burritos.

Fully sated, we said our goodbyes as Seth and Denver started the last leg of their journey. This evening they should make it comfortably to Denver's family home in San Francisco after driving along California's scenic Highway 1 through Big Sur and the rugged Pacific Ocean coastline.

You meet a lot of great and interesting people in this life.
