So, how did you begin 2009?
In my case it was thoroughly enjoying a guilty pleasure up in the woods of Oregon with a shark diver turned good friend Chris Limon and his wife Kimel.
They dropped out of the rat race in L.A two years ago and settled in a bucolic little ocean side town called Brookings. A place where Killer Whales still frolic off the coast, Redwoods still tower in the back hills, and local caught plate sized deep water Dungeness crab is $5.00 a pop.
In short, my kind of place.
Oh, and it's also great place to load up on serious weaponry, a few cigars, and some "fun targets" (stuff that goes boom).
For a conservationist like myself this may seem at odds with a lifestyle but, like I said, this is an entirely guilty pleasure of mine shared by a few close friends in remote places. It all started with a Beretta shotgun a few years ago and a fondness for Skeet and Trap shooting. Now I am toting around AR-10's...who knew?
Anyway, this is how I spent my New Years. Now it's back to the wild world of sharks, conservation, and...some very exciting media news coming up in the next few weeks.
2009 came in with a bang and the fun continues!
