You have got to use a neck brace, it does not have to be leatt, but it certainly helps!


This for me is the money shot! Great photos c.vestal!

May I suggest you try Bourbon and Pepsi instead.

PS: do you know Lisa Niblitt in Mukilteo? Good friend of ours.

btw - thanks for all the photos, c.vestal - it feels like we're getting so much more of an insider view of the all the lead-up stuff than we F5'rs ever have had before... it's awesome to see!

also... your SmugMug account loves you; you've gone from an average of 4k photo views per day to almost 40k in the past two days :)

Thanks. I'll give it a shot on the next bottle. Any particular flavor I should try?

Nope, The name doesn't ring a bell. I haven't lived here too long.
