By 6/06/2008

i mentioned i went to bald head island last weekend - its a small 'village' off the coast of north carolina, accessible only by ferry. there are no cars on the island, just golf cars. we went to visit our friends john and alexis (you may remember from such outings as st. john in march)

  1. Our little packet of friends holds the "Iron man and woman" contest every New Year's, which includes the egg blowing contest, wall sit, and every popular but painful vacuum hold (which has about 38,417 specific rules). Glad to see there are some other wackos out there who can't just get together and sit around the campfire.

  2. FYI, I am coming on your next little get-away because girl, you look like a whole lotta fun.


  3. Ooo, wall sit! I can't wait for additional events. Note to Jamie's blog readers...she is an amazing arm wrestler. It was surely the event of the olympics, and she beat me.
