I've been swearing to Brian (Creative Director at Simms) I'd write this story for weeks now, but mostly I've just been procrastinating about... for some reason he thinks I can write. Not exactly sure why... I didn't even graduate high school and I certainly don't consider myself much of a writer... but here I am, its 00:05, I'm two Basil Hayden's deep with a general snus packed in the upper lip and the writer within is trying to pry his way out so please, have mercy.
This is a story of how I met a random person who became one of my best friends and have shared some of the most memorable experiences of my life with.
I'd say most would agree that more often than not, you meet someone through a friend or acquaintance and that person usually doesn't enter your tight knit circle of friends. They don't sit at your dinner table and you surely don't show them the juice. But every now and again you just click with someone new, weather your personalities mesh well together or you simply share common interests, the wires get crossed and boom! You have a connection.
That's pretty much exactly what happened with Darcy Bacha and I, one night at Mile One burger in Pemberton BC. After a long day of shooting snowboarding in the mountains we were introduced through mutual friends and quickly learned we both were into fishing.
