*The delay of 4 days of posting was lack on internet, let along any cell phone coverage……
Day 2 began early…. really early. As many of you know traveling and adjusting to the time zone can really mess with your head. So, I was up at 4 a.m. Got some work done, ate some breakfast (oatmeal) and headed to the ocean about 5 mins away to Windansea as I did the night before. I met up with Jake Kirshenbaum again along with another South florida ripper, Johnny turbo! Shoot Jake launching into the atmosphere on his 5’3″ stick. He wasn’t just punting but also landing them.
Even a couple barrels to be weaved through.
Seagulls and airs.
5 day camp trip and 3 days of hiking, most of which will be on my back except the laptop.
Scott showing of his first aid kit that fits everything in a sucrets container.
I finish up running up and down the rocks and cliffs about 9:30 a.m. and then head back to the house to grab Scott to do some last minute earns for the trip. We stock up with food, I pack, quickly send out photos from the mornings shoot and before you know it, 3 o’clock comes and everyone is at our place meeting up to leave. We have 9 people on the trip, 5 in one car (my ride) and 4 in the other. We pack up and have a very snug fit in the car. I pack very lightly as I need to take my cameras and still have the same amount of room in the car as everyone else. Food consists of cliff bars, oatmeal, trail mixes, apples, bananas, granola bars and a dry mix pad tai for dinner on the hike. We make our way north from San Diego to Yosemite, 7 hours away in Northern California. We stop a few times, but are able to make good time and arrive at about 11:30 p.m. in the Yosemite Valley floor at Upper Pines campground. Setup the tents in the pitch black dark and fall quickly asleep.
