Either way, through my other friends' chance encounter with him I got back in touch with Bobby and have kept in touch ever since. I was so hyped to hear that Bobby was still skating a lot and hanging out with a good group of skaters in St. Louis. It's so easy to lose touch with people and then find out that they aren't skating anymore or whatever. So it's been good keeping in touch with someone who's still super excited about skating. Bobby is still so down for skating despite the fact that he's got a big boy job and big boy responsibilities (and despite all of the shit he eats when he skates). It's motivating to me to keep skating and having fun with it even when responsibility comes my way.

The first person to respond with all the questions answered fully was my friend Joe Hammeke. Joe is a rad dude from Omaha, Nebraska who now lives in Tempe, Arizona with his wife and dogs.

Snaking is such a big problem at camp this summer, this camper actually had to be removed for excessive snaking. (sorry for the shitty joke, It was actually pretty gnarly watching my boss grab this snake up off of the ground without knowing what type of snake it was or if it was poisonous)
