And so it begins...


I am in LA right now with Bradley. I met my staff Friday which marked the beginning of an exciting 3 days of intense training. I had a lot to go over and not much time to get it done but somehow we managed! I guess my biggest drama was Bradley and I deciding to tell the whole staff we are a couple. It’s not like we were worried about the whole gay thing, its more an issue of staff coupling we didn’t want to have be a problem. At camp people always hook up, and everybody always talks about it so I guess we just felt like it was important to get this all out of the way now before it becomes camp gossip that includes the campers. I guess the part I was most nervous about was explaining how we met at camp last year when Bradley was a camper… I was seriously considering fudging the details about when we became ummm, a couple. I swear to god I don’t make a habit of molesting the boys at camp I feel like I am always screaming from the rooftops that we are only 3 ½ years apart from each other and he was 19 at the time. SO I did fudge the details a little and the rest was relatively painless. At first they didn’t believe that either of us were gay much less a couple, so just to put all the doubts to rest I shoved my tongue down Bradley’s throat and that settled that.

Even though we were training pretty hard, we still found plenty of time to go out to the beach and catch some choice waves. Then of course we had to celebrate our session with a few hours of drinking, so all and all it was an amazing bonding experience! It’s always important to see early on who the lightweights are and exploit that at a later time…

I guess I also wanted to clear something up from quite a few emails I have been receiving lately. Apparently some of my old readers have started reading my blog again and most of them are all asking the same question, “What happened to Eddie?” He’s fine, it’s really hard to explain why it happened, but we broke up last May when he moved to a different continent. It’s still pretty hard to talk about, so I am just going to leave it at that. I almost didn’t link that post because looking at it now, all the reasons why I couldn’t stay with him aren’t even relevant anymore. But like I have said a million times, I wouldn’t want things turning out any different than they have, the good the bad and the ugly are all mine and I have earned the scars to show them off proudly.

The campers start arriving in a couple hours, then when they all arrive I get to go over all the RULES! YAY RULES RULE! Then we are going to spend a few hours getting to know each other at this awesome restaurant in West LA. Then we hit the sack early because our flight is at 5 am, which means we need to be at the airport at 3:30am (have you ever had to get 42 surfboards passed security? It actually takes a lot longer than you think!), which means we need to be out of the hotel by 3am, which means we need to be up and getting shit on the vans by at least 2:30am! This summer is going to be awesome! Let the sleepless nights begin…

I agree with Trevor! You are looking mighty fine in this pic. But if you were my friend, I wouldn't mind a little teasing now and again.

You drink, smoke pot, and eat more junk food than anybody I have ever met. Yet still you manage to pull of a body like this. If there were any justice in the world you would be a 300lb fatty with asthma instead of the 130lb pretty boy you are!

You are a brave guy telling all of the people you are working with you are in a relationship with a guy. If I had a camp counselor that looked like you back when i went to camp. I bet I would have kept going. DAMN you are fine!

I have lived next to the ocean my whole life and have never gone surfing. If your body is what I can expect for myself after surfing for awhile, I want to learn! Brotha you are to fine!

John said...

Right about now you are probably surfing. At some point does having all this luck and seeing all the amazing things that you see make you a little jaded to what you are experiencing!? I am jealous like no other.

As always, I am liking the body, but when am are we going to see the face?
