Great surf day
Waves were 1-3, occasional 4. Caught all the waves far out again, practiced hitting the nose but wiped out a couple times and had to swim to shore. And I saw a fellow ACE!
The World Really Is Too Overpopulated
I’ve always been quite passive about the environment. But it’s different now. More people means more idiots. Going to malls was one thing.

Living in the Wilderness
I was first inspired to live in the wilderness by myself when I was introduced to Henry David Thoreau. This black haired Spanish girl that was passively hipster who went to the Che cafe for indie concerts and ate vegetarian from Madison summer school would go into deep conversations with me about life and solitude. After the first day of class, I immediately started reading Moving Beyond Treeline...
