In the morning I'm headed off for the trip of a lifetime. Instead of the annual Thanksgiving trip to Seattle to feast with the in-laws, this year we're headed to Bali.
Don't get me wrong... I like them, but this is waaaaaaaay better.
Back to me getting eaten... Apparently there's a Tiger shark breeding ground in the Lombok strait, which makes sightings very common, especially in Nusa Dua, which is where we're staying, and the poppin surf spot this time of year.
I've been surfing Ocean Beach (San Francisco) most of my life, which is right smack dab in the middle of the red triangle. There's a seal breeding ground here which attracts plenty of Great Whites, but for some reason, they don't really scare me all that much... they should, I know, but I'm not all that bright, so I don't think about them. Tigers on the other hand... they scare the crap out of me.
Unlike a Great White, they don't stop at just one bite.
