Well I figured I'd been in New Zealand a while now, and was yet to do anything exciting but was too scared to go bungy jumping. I have a friend who knows this guy, who holds national titles in NZ paragliding events and such, so he took me out! It was the best ever, the closest you can ever feel to flying.

on another note, i sadly had to pawn that banjo due to job loss and needing to feed a great dane named Numa-Pi.

quite digging your approach and philosophy to playing music.

just to add 2 cents to the banjo thing, the reason they have such a unique attack and tone is due to the traditional body being a closer relative to the snare drum than a classical guitar. regardless of the amount of strings if it's got a body made of a resonator chamber and a skin on top i think it's safer to call it a banjo than a guitar.

Here are some new pictures of me from the weekend before last.


Here I am at the steps of my private beach.


Here I am getting away in my speed boat.


Here I am attempting to flee the paparazzi.


Here one of the paparazzi got me just after I got out of my Benzo. I put on my jacket before I punched him in the face.

how far along the coast were you? it's reminding me of a much colder version of the summer i spent in the San Juan islands (closer to Canada than Oregon).

either way, i'm jealous of the speed boat and benzo haha

The first two pics were taken on Whidbey Island (which sits somewhere between Seattle and the San Juan Islands), and the 3rd is from San Juan Island two days later. It was pretty damn cold that day.
