So after Fayetteville I was literally chewing off my fingernails. I had no idea what Skatopia was going to be like. I always said I wouldn't go there. But we lucked out. There was only two other guys there beside Bruece. Bruece ended up being a pretty cool dude. So much history at this place. I should have taken more photos but I think the whole time I was overwhelmed... does that make me a pussy? We skated the concrete bowl for a while with the whole crew and Bruece. He started up his grill and invited us to all cook together. Then he invited us to a session on the "big bowl," if you skateboard you know what I am talking about. It ended up being really fun once I got over my fear at least a little bit. After skating was done it was to the PBR lounge and shotgun party. It ended up being a really fun night with a good fire and camping with just the crew.

What an awesome trip. Can't wait for next year. Can't wait for June. Shit, I just can't wait to be on the road again. Camping, skating, and homies, it doesn't get much better than this.
