i’m trying to remember the last time i had to take off a layer before the ride started and i can’t. so there i was stripping in public (again) when i was greeted by some familiar faces. first, pedro rolled up. there goes my prediction that we weren’t going to see him again on the g-ride for the next 5 or 6 years. his wife and the baby are both doing well and he took the...
