UPS chick called them "tackle", then asked if they were worth more than $100.
Knowing she was referring strictly to their value as a consumer good, I simply shook my head.
I wanted to explain to her that they were worth a great deal more to me... As a way to connect with the brethren, learn some new things, and maybe give me reason to take another picture ( and another shot) the next time I'm on the water.
The board has seemed somehow less than its former self lately, but I hate the idea that what I know as "the Drake" has been lost.
So, here's to the great time Ive shared with some of you boys (especially the Appalachian contingent), but especially to the memories I hope to make with the rest... You know, the Drake.
