I got to stay at this beach house
for free, for several days, with 6 good friends (2 guys/4 girls). And I had a blast
. The house belongs to one of the girl's aunt and uncle. The area we were in was private, so our section of the beach was also private. The weather was awesome.
My parents gave me the Blazer since I was hauling so much luggage (and alcohol). Certain parts of the beach you are allowed to drive on if you have a Surf Fishing License. I didn't have a license to do this, but of course I decided I was going to drive on the beach anyway. BAD IDEA, especially when you don't let any air out of your tires. I was doing fine until I tried to turn around in the loose sand, as soon as I stopped and tried to back up I started spinning tires and digging in. But, my lead foot and 4WD conquered the loose sand.
I didn't take many pictures, but here are a few.
This is what I look like when I'm happy (LoL), I've got a little sunburn from being on the beach.
Oh and hey, guess who bought a Magellan GPS, ME!
On the way back home from the beach the girls who were in my car originally, on the way down, rode back with a girl that drove down by herself. So it was just me and my friend Mike riding home in the blazer. I drove normal leaving the beach town, but once we hit the freeway Mike was like "just start passing these people" I passed my whole group of friends and drove flat out the whole way home. I kept it just under the 95mph governor for almost 90 miles strait, it was great, we beat everyone home by a long shot. Here's my trip calculator after the whole ride home. Check the average speed out, 69 mph, lol, that's with sitting through 3 toll booths and about 10 miles of in town 25-40 mph driving.
