Quick & Easy…Just like _______

“What is it about traveling?
It’s about education. That’s the way I educate myself. The best education is learning about the world, you know, instead about some abstract concept or something. Learning about the world is the most important thing. Everywhere I travel, it’s a learning experience.”
Yvon Chouinard (Interview by Michael Kew from 2003 )

You drove 24hrs on a weekend to surf?
That shit’s doesn’t even faze me, just don’t ask me to drive across the province of Ontario ever again.
Sometimes I sit at habitat for two minutes and twelve seconds listening to someone talk uninformed jibberish about their board or fluo wax.
That shit’s seems like an eternity, and did you hear they invented fluo wax JUST for La Cordee customers. True story.

Fortunately, there is no price tag on adventure.
Besides, the cost is much higher on your conscience when you don’t go.
Like, damn, what was it like and might I have met the girl of my dreams in Oromocto or in Wine Harbour?

Two is company and three is a surfari is what Tony Danza used to say.
Or perhaps it was Polly Marois?
I can never remember these fine details, but loved every minute spent in the fire red wagon, speeding through moose country.

Ain’t no thang L’Anglais was back at the blocks, post-travail, schralping Monday afternoon.
Birdman probably rode his bike to work and polished off the rest of his Bánh mì stock like it ain’t no thang.
What is some thang is my tardiness on this whole mess of stoke.

A weekend spent with El Ray de Beach Niche has a tendency to make you take a long look in the mirror though.

Long live the King. Larga vida El Ray.
