2,800 miles through snow, ice, wind, and traffic to get here. I wish I enjoyed the desert SW as much as the Florida coast since it is so much closer. But alas, I am a hopeless son of a beach (or so I am told).
A Craftsman “designer” duffel bag full of summer clothes, beach chairs, an iPod, sandals, Ray-Bans, sunscreen, Thomas McGuane’s The Longest Silence: A Life In Fishing, and a bottle of “bottom shelf” rum (just in case the book is no good). Fully accessorized.
Turning off the lights and heading south.
Merry Christmas to all!
