on the road again
My buddy Duffy is a goddamm driving machine. When he's not making the twice monthly, 17 hour drive between his homes in Sun Valley Idaho and Santa Barbara, he's driving between Zihuatenajo, Mexico and Santa Barbara. Usually dragging a 31 foot Airstream or a trailer loaded with all kinds home building shit. Dust, arguing with co-pilot, topes, spacing out, arguing with co-pilot, pay offs and bribes for 4 hard days of driving. Yesterday began yet another one of these twice-a-year adventures. On his way south, out of town, he stopped by the office for a few last-minute cases of wax and some board shorts. One for Corky Carrol, one for The Inn at Manzanillo Bay, and one for himself. I wish I could've just walked away from my desk and never come back. Along for the ride this time is his contractor in Mex, Gonzalo. I just hope they don't beat the shit outta each other at some point. Good luck amigos.
