Skateopia

I remember first reading about this place in the pages of Big brother Skateboard Magazine more than 10 years ago. It's a big skateboarder/artist/punk/bluegrass colony out in the boondocks. Lots of naked skating and blowing shit up for the fun of it. Looks like a hell of a time, but I sort of feel like everyone there is going to suddenly grow donkey ears and start braying.

No thank-you.

Yeah, I can't imagine that being your scene.

So that's Skate-topia, not scat-topia. Or maybe both.

I knew that looked wrong. A little of both.

Hahah! My friends go there every once in a while. They always come back with good stories.
My friend is a calculus professor at GMU/crazy punk rock girl and had a sweet romance there with some crusty traveler from North Carolina.
Seems like a fun place.

It always looked that way to me.
