This past year i had the good fortune to spend two weeks in ecuador paddling with randy, bruno, jason, Gary S. Although i've known randy for many years, this was the first extended out of the country trip that i had the pleasure of spending with him. I am so glad that i had that opportunity, many of you have had the pleasure of traveling around the world on various adventures with him and you know exactly what i mean. I shared a room with randy for a large part of the trip, during which we'd lie awake for a good bit of time after the lights were off talking about the days events or random thoughts....he told me about his idea for publishing the book "spanish for ya'll " a spanish to georgian twang translation dictionary.
I'll never forget that trip, It's times like this that makes us realize how special simple things such as that are - I'll remember these simple times spent just "hangin" far after the memories of the whitewater and various rapids have faded.
Randy wherever you are right now, scout those drops for us, figure out the good powder stashes, dance every dance and We'll all be be joining you sometime down the road.... and what a time we'll have then.
