Well, it's been over a week since the whirlwind that was Surf N Turf 2008 and I'm still craving for more.
From the detailed organization of getting 16 trucks down to the dunes in a single caravan to the organized chaos that enveloped the night runs, Surf N Turf 2008 proved to be quite an event to remember. In fact, the only thing that would have made it better was banana chocolate chip pancakes on Sunday morning.
Many thanks are in order to everyone who represented NorCal. Every individual contributed in one way or another, whether it was taking photos/videos, preparing/offering meals, rescuing flying porta-potties, hauling equipment, coming up with ideas for cool gear, leading runs, imparting knowledge or best of all, making us laugh.
It still amazes me to this day that so many people from different regions, backgrounds, professions and beliefs can all rally around one vehicle and have such a great time together. It kind of makes me wonder if we'd achieve world peace if everyone in the world owned an FJ.
OK, perhaps that's taking it a little too far.
But for me, Surf N Turf was the best way to wrap up the wheeling season. Great people, great spirits and great fun. Hope y'all had as much fun as I did!
Until Surf N Turf 2009...
BTW...did I mention I dig cypilk's video? 20+ views and counting!
