Brandon and I flocked to the coast this weekend in an attempt to escape the insufferable heat. Although the air temp was hardly less miserable and we both got sea lice (which gifted us with some odd side effects), it was a blast! We skated the Port Aransas skatepark (a forever favorite), had a stimulating visit with our engineer friend Ryan, and spent hours watching burly trucks get stuck in the sand. Listen: the lighter and fluffier the sand, the heavier the predicament you're going to find yourself in when the sun goes down. Always park on dark, compacted sand to ensure an easy exit. And NEVER set up your tent at the beach without an understanding of tides. Lastly, pack it in, pack it out! Spend some time collecting trash next time you visit a state or national park and let us love thy facilities and love thy planet.
