Like many of you, I enjoy reading posts on The Trad. Today he featured a photo of himself on a boat in 1985 sporting a beard and a nice duffel coat. The photo for some reason reminded me of one from 1993 when I was motoring around Lake Mead outside Las Vegas. Similarities in the photos: White boy...check. Body of water...check. All American background...check. Boat....check. Ray Bans....check.
