Morning was an Austro-Germanic breakfast in New York that saw us collect two more boards courtesy of Hans Seeger and Jeff Kling. Hans passed over the simplest, cleanest piece of design we've seen yet, wearing these beautiful gloves he'd made out of an old jumper. He's pretty handy like that. Kling hauled out, not a skateboard, but a whole raft of ideas that were so much better than an actual skateboard we felt murderous towards him for a good five minutes. That threat level has now been downgraded to a punch on the nose. The presence of Jeff's family saved him from our jealous rage - hey Una, Rosina, Valeska. Then, with the red mist clearing, we hightailed it out of there, finished packing, picked up the rental car, and then met the book girl Monika come to life - she's done an amazing board that she says predicts the three possible future outcomes for our planet, amongst other things. We'll just have to take her word for it. Then we said goede dag to the Holland Tunnel and tot ziens to New York. We're now in Pennsylvania.
