New Friends

You and your partner used to have mutual friends. You all could get drinks and talk about television or your bosses, like normal people. Now your partner spends a lot of time with a guy who lives in a 1995 Dodge Neon. His name is Decker, and you’ll hear a lot about how he climbs “like a Zen master.” You will need to fight the urge to mention that he’s not Zen—he’s just exhausted because he sleeps in a tiny car.

Replace Dodge Neon with old minivan/van/svu and you have most of us after the ride to OBX. Worst mistake I ever made was trying to drive through the night to get to Rodanthe. Arrived at 10 am. The house was still closed and there was no wind. Had to take a nap in an uncomfortable Adriondack (are there any comfortable ones?) chair.

Pro Amateur tip: board bags are very comfy. Good
