an amazing year. an amazing luau. i love these things. i've been surfing my feral pig all year and LOVING it. at the luau i rode a tyler Z chip. hiked that fella down and up trail 6. turns out i'm not as strong as Tyler. it was great to catch up with friends. it was great to get the feet dirty (and study the dirt). me wife was stoked. there were groms running about. i could hear vocabulary of surfboard design in the trees. i heard pig skin cracklin, i heard beverages being opened. my van still smells like fire and flesh.
