Boneyard: Danger Bay 14

Somehow we made it through May-long weekend and it didn’t rain once. This must be a sign that global warming is real. You know what? I’m ok with that. It definitely makes for a more pleasurable Danger Bay experience.

I was fortunate enough to cruise out to the Sunshine Coast with my good bubby Jacob Lambert.
For those of you who don’t know, he’s terrific photographer. For those of you who do know, word.

Danger Bay security was on point this year. Glad my $30 camping fees are being put to good use.

The Danger Bay Cup. Most of us will never have our name on it so we just have to drink beer out of it to taste the glory. Since I purchased the beer in Canada, glory tasted a bit expensive for what I got.

It appears my $30 camping fees are putting gas in his scooter and giving him beers to drink. Since Brian won Danger Bay 5 by pushing Nate in the Hay, I’m cool with that. He might push me in the hay just for giving him a dirty look.

Jacob and I found a rad Japanese restaurant that we ate at every single day. Thank god it was sunny everyday. Not sure what we would have done otherwise…

There were several bald eagles flying around Pender Harbor. Since I’m American, I have an appreciation for such things.

The Landyachtz team crushed it and won the longboard hockey tournament.

Wolf wasn’t impressed so he just checked out the local Tinder scene.

They had a rad petting zoo that I wanted to participate in but I didn’t want to be the creepy old guy hanging out petting small animals. So instead I was the creepy old guy taking photos of little kids petting animals.

I went an checked out the Pender Harbor golf course with Jacob, Tom and Theobald. It was very fun but also one of the more challenging courses I’ve played. 10/10 would golf again.

This is what May-long weekend is all about.

Bands played at the campsite. Didn’t watch them though (sorry Guff).

A dry road for race day! #projectcat was pleased with this.

Jacob was stoked on getting to race but didn’t have any gear so I let him borrow my gear. I think he sported it well.

Once I got eliminated I took over the DJ booth with #projectcat and a coozie my mom gave me.

Api and Nick had the best seats in the house.

Nick was in full adventure mode that weekend. His bike was dialed-in and for three days he had no gods or masters.

I got in the water. It was a bit chilly but whatever. I’m tough like that.

Danger Bay campsite is a scary place to be Monday morning. Your best bet is to book it to the ferry line-up, get a shitty coffee or just take a disco nap in your truck.

Jacob pointed out that this dog looked like a seal. I took a photo to commemorate the moment.
