This weekend I am hiring a model to do several photoshoots and one that I had planned was going to take place on the far end of Centerville Beach where there is a bunch of huge pieces of driftwood. I came across this area while riding the ATV and thought it would be interesting for an early morning photoshoot. Since I need to transport the model, the make-up person, Lori, myself, and all my photogear, I figured I would drive down the beach, which is legal. I had seen similar trucks do it all the time, but I wanted to do a test before the real deal. As you can see the test failed. I ended up having to call around to find someone with a huge farm tractor to pull it out. As it turns out though the guy that ended up helping me was someone I had wanted to meet anyways, although under better circumstances. He’s a big time motocross rider and several people have mentioned his name to me as someone I should get to know. The price for towing my truck off the beach is to take him and his wife out to dinner at the Ivanhoe. Pretty good punishment for doing something stupid if you ask me. And further proof that Ferndale is a really great place to live! Needless to say, I am working on Plan B for the photoshoot.
