Get into your element

So I made a big purchase in late october I think it was and totally forgot to blog it. So here it is. Simple and short. I've been eyeing this thing for awhile and finally decided to charge it.

Here is a view for all you Hawaii peeps out there. Keepin my roots.

You'll notice the Hawaiian islands in red and the hula girl on my dashboard. My hula girl has gotten me through many long days ha. Stoked on my car and can't wait to road trip with it on a surf trip. Perfect for such adventures with the spacious room and the rubber flooring.

If I married a Lebanese....Hmmm

This is a rad picture of the country Lebanon. I would say it looks like a place I would love to see and explore. I don't know much about lebanon but it could offer some good pictures and an awesome adventure for sure. After doing little research on Lebanon, I found out there is a couple surf spots in one area called batroun. I would not move there unless I could have a surf break somewhat close. Where im getting with all this is this past friday I went with some friends to a authentic Lebanese/Middle Eastern restaurant for dinner. Anyone who knows me well understands im a simple eater. Love cereal and other simplistic food. I decided if im going to travel I need to just try different things and why not start now. I told my friends this would decide if I could marry a lebanese woman and move to the middle east.

This is the place we went to eat
The next picture displays an authentic drink from the Lebanon area. Its called "Limeade".
It was decent but really tangy and sourish. Nothing your chugging down. I finished a half a glass in an hour.

This next picture is a digital replica of the food I ate. The sandwich to your right is a "Mediterranean steak and cheese sandwich" with there local sauce and spices on it. It was actually pretty good. Second thing you notice is the little pizza. It was a Lamb pizza with onions and some other local lebanese sauce. It tasted more like an onion wrapped with bread and minor sauce. Not stoked on the pizza at all.

So... Comes the question... Would I marry a lebanese woman? I don't currently know any at the moment so I don't think its a big worry or decision I have to make but if I had to decide I think I could survive but not be super happy.

Where you been hiding.....

Sorry i have been MIA for the last little while. This picture should explain whats been keeping me super busy.

I have been shoveling so much freaking snow! Unfortunately its how i make my benjamins. In the summer its landscaping and winter is snow removal. I run a crew and work insane long, late, cold hours. I know your laughing since most peeps who are reading this know how much i dislike being cold and love the sun. It is helping me stash the cash to travel or move back to Hawaii. But seriously its been snowing non-stop.

On to more important things. My christmas was epic as always and got hooked up with some cash and other cool stuff. The cash was an important role in my goal to travel and explore my new hobby. Here is what a little cash gets you.

im super stoked to use it for blogging but most of all traveling and documenting my trips and adventures and making photo books online. Eeee!
