Nick’s birthday, dad in town, planning Glenn’s party, all mixed in with the usual life chaos, means I haven’t had a chance to post. But I do have a couple surf sessions (yay) to write about soon.

In other surf-related news, we had an unexpected opportunity to purchase what is an almost required part of the Humboldt-surf package… a Toyota Tacoma.

After weighing the pros (the obvious sand-related 4WD advantages, dump runs, Bobby’s work, etc.; it’s in good shape at a good price) and the cons (is this the best use of our limited funds, ecological concerns, extra expenses; it’s not the perfect truck, no back seat or camper shell), we’ve decided to go for it.

I’m cautiously excited.
