Happy birthday Alex!! Can’t wait to see you again soon, are you seriously 29 now?? How old are we, lol, what the fuck?It seems like just yesterday we were kids sitting in the living room after school playing Road Rash and Sonic and Goldeneye and 1080 and Tony Hawk and the list goes on and on!! Miss you so much and I’m so proud of you for everything you’ve accomplished and all the hard work you’ve put into school. You are a beautiful human being and I have so much respect for you as a person and I truly look up to you and I’m beyond lucky to be your brother. So happy we got to spend the week in Denver together this year it was incredible — hiking at the Garden of the Gods then at the Flatirons in Boulder and cruising Denver and Um at Red Rocks — so incredible, can’t wait for the next one wherever and whenever it is. And I can’t wait to see what the future holds for each of us but I hope we get to spend as much of it as possible together. We’ve shared so much in this life, siblings have such a unique bond, and I can’t wait to share more. I love you so much and stoked for the next time we get to hang out — have an amazing birthday and hopefully see you soon!!
(I already sent this to you but I’m so proud you’re my bro I want everyone to see it!!)
I’m taking a bus today to Santiago for one day before I catch an early flight to Punta Arenas, my gateway to Patagonia!
Today I will try to enjoy the moment though I really don’t want to leave this beach town where my ocean water broke and my beautiful new salty, surfer baby was born — how weird of a metaphor is that?? Too weird? I dunno, but either way I’m sad to be leaving this place with so much energy.
But I think it will be worth it, Patagonia and Torres del Paine should prove to be spectacular in their own special way. Incomparable of course. But first the big city and some chores like laundry and planning food and other logistics for a four day backpacking trip at the bottom of this strange and sad and beautiful world…
Goodbye Pichilemu, you’re fuckin’ Sarah Connors forever to me now — I’ll be back!
Spent the day editing some video I shot in Punta de Lobos yesterday and the 5-hour bus ride melted away. After an Uber to the hostel I settled in and took my laundry to a spot a few blocks away and made some dinner — bean soup from a package. Nothing fancy but comforting and cheap.
See u tomorrow freaks. ✌️
