The best present I've ever received
« on: September 30, 2008, 10:01:11 pm »
I've been meaning to post this a while ago, but due to me being a lazy bum, I only got to it tonight.

LuckyStriker told me a while ago he's sending me a package.
I had no idea what it could be, so I anxiously awaited the package, thinking that it has to be something terrible.

I could not believe what it was: a photographic journal of all the trips LS, Butch, and myself have done together over the last 3-odd years.

My camera is stuffed - hence the bad focus. I apologise profusely for the bad quality.
The pics are also rather big, but its kinda difficult taking pictures of a picture book and being able to see it... :P ;D

Thanks LS, this is an amazing gift. I page through it every night, reliving the excellent riding and kuiering times we've had so far. You are an amazing artist and an even better friend.

You're my boy Blue!!!! 8)

What a great way to relive memories!
Must have taken some serious effort but I'm pretty sure it's all worth it!
Nice job LuckyStriker.
