SUPER=03-San Clemente, CA;


Every year for the past 18 years patrons of the Mugs Away Saloon in San Clemente, California have greeted the Amtrak train with a rather cheeky salute.
They all gather in front of the bar to moon the train heading for Los Angeles.
This year's crowd included people of all ages and sizes including a grandmother who was preparing for her first mooning.
