MARKING IT


BYE BYE BYE MY NIKES


This was a sad day. I buried my old friend on this day MAY 25, 2009. I bought this Nike hiking boots in BIG 5 on 1995. This was the year I started going camping. I went camping for 5 years every summer to Carpenteria beach San Onfre beach, Kern River, Pyramid Lake, Castaic Lake, Mt. Pinos, Lake Isabella, and Lake Perris all in California.



Then I stop for 5 years for personal reasons. Then I started to go hiking near my house in SFV for 2 years. I moved to Vegas then I would hike red rock weekly in the cooler months.



I knew a few months ago I knew my nikes were going to die. I bought new hiking boots last month and I broke It in a few ago. I also use my keens and tevas in the spring time.



My nikes soles started to separate for my boots coming down from the angel’s landing hike. I had Mark carry my soles in hi s backpack HAHAHAHAHA.  I plan to bury my hiking boots at my camp site.



It official....Mark has WITNESS to my insanity.  HAHAHAHAHA I had him take photos of me digging the hole, saying a eulogy, burying it, and marking it with a rock and a leaf.  HAHAHAHAHAHA.



R.I.P.
NIKES :(


Shortly there after, mark and i packed up the car. we wanted to get back to Vegas before traffic hits. We noticed our neighbors has left.
