Hey, Taj. You realize if we played by the rules right now we’d be in gym?
A little background. Taj’s parents are Jason & Becky Blyth. They went to Boston. Taj had the day off. We hit the San Juans.
The question isn’t “what are we going to do,” the question is “what aren’t we going to do?”
Taj, you’re my hero.
The city looks so peaceful from up here.
Oh, Taj’s very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads – they all adore him. They think he’s a righteous dude.
All this hiking has made me kinda light headed.
We descended Sultan into the drainage to the west rather than come back the way we came, eventually hitting the Colorado Trail. Other than his appreciation for rabbits, snowballs, and trenchbuilding, Taj also takes his bushwacking very seriously.
Roll the credits – A few other highlights from Taj’s Day Off:
No train, Taj, forget it. You’re just gonna have to think of somethin’ else. I’m puttin’ my foot down!
Here’s where Taj goes berserk. Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!
He’s licking the glass and making obscene gestures with his hands.
Four thousand restaurants in the downtown area, I pick the one my father goes to.
You’re still here? It’s over!
Special thanks to Jason, Becky, and Taj for being awesome.
