I know, I know, it looks like all this hair must be older than time itself, but in fact it is not.  It's pretty old though. It’s the same hair"cut” Nigel was rocking when Joel first met him back on the elementary school playgrounds. Minus the beard of course, that came much later on.

Nigel and Joel grew up together back in Fairbanks, Alaska, and at one point in High School, Nigel even moved into Joel’s house for a time. The two of them did nothing but watch movies, jam on guitars, and talk about weird philosophical stuff. Well, many years later Nigel’s in a psychedelic rock band and finishing up a music degree, and Joel went to film school and is on an international film/photo journey, so it’s safe to say some of that goofing around must have paid off in some way.

Nigel took us to the beach in Arcata, California and we climbed some rocks, drank some beers, and watched the fog roll in before we had to roll out on our way south.
