I am between gigs here on the Island. Once again it’s hotter than blazes. The sun is beating down unmercifully on the white sands of Mexico as some of the finest Rednecks ever assembled on one Island compete against one another for $100,000. I’m wearing shorts, a sleeveless shirt, a cap, and flip flops. I’m also wearing about 4 coats of some of the strongest sun screen known to mankind. Trying to keep my white ass from turning into a human lobster. Feels like the sun is only 10 feet away….Which got me wondering how the hell they make sun screen. I mean sun screen has come a long way. Back in the day when you put that stuff on it was just a white blob of liquid. Looked like a bunch of Sea Gulls had shit all over you. These days the stuff is in a spray bottle and goes on clear. I know it’s not the most important subject you’ll read about all week, but since I’ve used a couple of gallons of it over the last few weeks it was on my mind.
Day 2 of writing blog.
Here’s one for you. Sushi. If you like sushi and ever get down to La Paz, you have to go to Odayaka Sushi in the Marina. This is the best sushi I’ve ever eaten. Hands down. End of story. And if you make it to Odayaka, you must try the sushi burritos. A burrito? At a sushi joint? Damn right. They’re incredible.
Five more days of filming out here on Redneck Island. This has been a fun process. The show will be a little different than last year. I won’t say how, because I don’t want to spoil it for anybody. But I am happy with what we have gotten so far. This seasons Rednecks have been a good bunch of game competitors. Some interesting folks who one by one are leaving the Island as we get closer to the finish…One person. One person only, will walk away with $100,000 dollars.
Upon my arrival back in Los Angeles, I will take care of business for a few weeks, have a few meetings, and drive down to the Broken Skull Ranch in South Texas. Deer season is right around the corner. I will continue to rehab my knee down at the ranch. Speaking of my knee, it is feeling great. I am slowly regaining size and strength in my left leg. I had a new ACL and PCL grafted in on July 2 and I am happy with how everything is progressing.
It will be interesting to see how our deer are this year. All though we have recently gotten a few inches of rain lately, South Texas has been in a drought for quite some time.
Gotta get ready to rally the Rednecks on the island.
