I am this close to counting down the minutes until I am happily unemployed for six weeks. I am ready to set my spirit free, have no inhibitions and seek my inner creativity. I start with a road trip up the coast of California, camping on beaches, seeing old friends and ending up in the majestic Redwoods. After that its beach camping and I hope to revisit my surfing abilities. Then I’m off to New Zealand to be a real snowboard bum for the rest of the summer. Wish me luck!
