By rod welch, shoulder hopping grand master, tax evasion expert , 06-03-2007

don't take off too deep! - coz if you do i'll drop in on ya! im the shoulder hopping king of the pipe, i love dropping in out wide on the shoulder then reluctantly pulling off once you catch up to me, theres nothing more satisfying than a good shoulder hop and i'll do it to anyone, women, children, family...no one should be spared the rod welch shoulder hopping experience!

localisim - on good days (which is most of the time)the local t.s.o.l crew will be out there and ripping it up and if you want to have fun give out a hoot now and then when one of the locals catches a bomb and they will give you your turn in the line up.
