Bachelor Party

Some of you may know I was married on Oct. 27th, my excuse for missing ICS this year. To make up for it, the week before the wedding Steve Rupp met Nick and Myself in Utah for a different kind of bachelor party. I was given direct orders by the future Mrs. "NO CANYONEERING!!" So it was a mellow trip with some great scenery.

Congratulations!

Was wondering why I didn't see you at ICS. Looks like you had an Amazing time and the bachelor "party" looked pretty good too.

Thank you gentlemen, it was a lot of fun... I hadn't been to any of the places we ventured into before. Sheep Creek I found by doing some research and kind of knew where it was, Nixfall was a complete surprise. We just drove down a wash in the classic "let's see where this goes" style and were blown away with what we found down there.

Nothing hard core at all, just driving down a wash with some boulders here and there.

Are you guys seeing what I'm seeing?





Looking at the room, I can tell that you.
Are the most beautiful girl in the...room.
(In the whole wide room).
And when you're on the street, depending on the street.
I bet you are definitely in the top 3.
Good lookin girls on the street.
(Depending on the streets).
And when I saw you at my man's place.
I thought...what, is she, doing...at my man's place.
How did he get a hottie like that to a party like this?
Good one, Dave.
(Ooh, you're a LEGEND, Dave).

I asked Dave if he's going to move on you.
He's not sure.
"Dave, do you mind if I do?"
He says he doesn't mind.
But I can tell he kind of minds.
But I'm going to do it anyway.

I see you standing all alone by the stereo.
I dim the lights down very low.
You're so beautiful.
You could be a waitress.
You're so beautiful.
You could be a air hostess in the 60s.
You're so beautiful.
You could be a part-time model.
But then I seal the deal, I do my moves.
I do my dance moves.

Lets travel through, just me and you.
As other dudes around you on the dance floor.
I draw you near, lets get out of here.
Lets get in a cab. I'll buy you a kabob.
I can't believe. I'm sharing a kabob.
With the most beautiful girl I have ever seen with a kabob.
Oh, why don't we leave?
Lets go to my house.
We can feel each other up on the couch.
Oh no, I don't mind taking it slow.

Cause you're so beautiful...
Like a tree. Or a high class prostitute.
You're so beautiful.
You could be a part time model.
But you'd probably still have to keep your normal job.
A part time model.
Spend part of your time modeling.
And part of your time next to me.

My place is usually a bit tidier than this.
