Well, I must say, I had a very good time in Staples. Monday was the first day I've taken off from all responsibilities since I can't even remember when - I didn't ride, i didn't work on bikes, I didn't even work on my website. It was great. I surfed a little earlier in the day, then went swimming at the local river with Michael Beachy and his roommate Trevor. We returned home to play video games and listen to vampire music before Michael cooked a delicious feast of spaghetti and garlic bread for supper. Tyler swung by and we decided to go bar hopping in Staples. None of these guys had ever been in a bar in Staples before, despite having grown up there, so it was a real learning experience. There are only four bars, and we got kicked out of two on account of Trevor being only 20 years, 355 days old (curse the USA and its weirdo alcohol laws). But we had a fun time nonetheless. The bottom photo was taken in a bar called Enockers, where the owner swears he has pictures of Elvis, John Lennon and Daunte Culpepper kissing the cow.
Anyways, I just want to thank Mike, Trevor and Tyler for showing me a great time.
