I do that at the OR coast, where the hike is a couple of hundred yards across big, extremely gusty, soft sand dunes.

I've had to rescue my gear from both, and shuddered when the kid tossed my board back on the ground in 30+ knots of wind. "Do Not Steal My Stuff" signs on the gear make no difference; I've still lost stuff to idiots, and almost had to take a wetsuit back by force from the parks employee who stole it.

What a drag it must be to be you. Are you ever not pissed off?

Nope, just ask the 4 star general who came under his improper sunscreen investigation, a.k.a. the Coppertone Affair.

Here is the video. I tried for the record to delete this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZpXmtnWc24 The instructor says Gorge guys's are insane. And F you guys.

This guy was looking for trouble. I have run into these white guys on Hawaii that insist they own Hawaii! This is a classic example! Study the video. I have been sailing for years. I mean if this was Roweena on the rocks I get it! This is some white guy that has that white snobby scummy attitude on Hawaii!

Im glad that video had a hottie. I've unfortunately met a few guys like that in the gorge, and elsewhere... no tact.

I need to point out that the guy filming was NOT the guy who left the sail on the beach, yet he got the wrath from that sunfried dweeb of a beach king.

But a big thanks to Josh for posting that link to South Park, Going Native episiode. That was hill lar ious! I've stayed on Maui and Kauai a bunch of times and that show nailed it. [/code]
