I think I have the perfect amount of BPL posts. Enough for ultralight credibility, yet few enough to seem cool and slightly disinterested. Anyone with more posts than me obviously has nothing...

Me, me
Sorry again for backing out of the run guys, just being up front as soon as I can. Surfing won again. I pulled it off in Joshua Tree but I'm more skeptical going into Zion without more time o...
