Whew...

No surf 'round here lately, meager at best so I loaded up and hit the trail, with only a hieroglyphic on a thread worn t-shirt to guide me.
I knew in my heart that if I looked for it...I would have my paradise...

First, I got the cats out of my trailer...Then I loaded it up...
Then I went South because that just made more sense, how could this perfect spot be North of me? I saw some carnage, the mangled debris left by others foolish enough to try...
Nope, close but it was flat...Pretty Sunset though....I was pooped so I slept here by the creek...no , not that creek...The next morning, up at the crack...This looked promising...but no...
Same with this spot...And this one...And this one...And this one, even stoned, not even close...
So I asked this little busy bee...after getting him buzzed of course...
"Dude, its way far from here, always epic and Bro-Love!, check out my shirt!"
And then he buzzed away...



This was the last spot I looked at...I was getting weary, seems I wasn't going to find the myth after all....Oh well, I put the shirt/map up on the Welcome to Cali sign with a note...
"If you find this epic spot, call me!"
But even that won't help because I left my phone...here...right after calling the wife to let her know I had failed...End of the trail, no way could I venture in to Lotus Land...

And thats what I did since Sunday at 2 pm.
I am now safely at home due to some Karma from Nunzio.
Nunzio is one of our beloved Coos Bay type locals, or was...
I saw him going North Sunday afternoon and he flipped around. He asked where I was heading to. I showed him the shirt. He is one of the teachers axed due to budget cuts but he found a job in Brookings and was going back and forth moving...hmmm, I said, when you going down again?
He was down there today, I helped him unload his trailer and he loaded me up and gave me a ride home...

Nice trip! I've seen that drawing before, heard tales of said break. I don't know that anyone will ever fine it, not even Sissyfish. Good try though!

What about those 10 miles?

What did I do? Swam. Surfed. Lifted. Impressed the hell out of my orthopedist.

I wish I could get some surf, its 51 degrees here and foggy so...if there is surf, no one can see it...
