A Lost Dawg in Hawaii.......

While I consistently sign the bottom of each blog entry with the number of days until kickoff, attempting to keep pace with my friends at Hedges to Hardwood, I have also kept a personal countdown in my head as well. That countdown has reached 1 (one), my friends! I am OFF TO HAWAII (Oahu to be exact) tomorrow!!! 

My brother, who has absolutely zero interest in sports, has taken up residency on the North Shore of Oahu, and works as a skydive instructor (where the hell did I go wrong?). Other than the lack of interest in sports (UGA football), I would love to live his life! Wake up, ride my bicycle past beautiful island mountains/volcanoes on the way to the airfield, board and jump out of airplanes while making money, and scuba/snorkel dive and kayak on my days off....... YES PLEASE!! Well, until I think hard, and realize that the southeastern US of A, specifically Georgia,  is indeed my place and my people.

I have never crossed the Mississippi River, and am VERY excited to see the Pacific Ocean for the first time in my life.... in grand fashion.

I want to wish each of you a VERY happy summer, and I wish that each and every one of you are able to take a vacation  half as cool as I am about to take, in order to clear our minds and focus on the beautiful time of year which is about to grace us. I will be able to check in on Dawg news, but am vowing not to write during my journey.

I will be packing 7 UGA t-shirts, and 2 UGA hats to spread the love across the Hawaiian islands over the next 10 days. I hope to run into at least one or two fellow members of Dawg Nation, but hope the football team does not see this place until they reach Pro Bowl status in the NFL.......

Looking VERY forward to SEC Media Days in Hoover, AL when I return!!

60 days til' kickoff!!
