1.Never let your lack of cash get in the way of fun. Find a way.
2.Fun is the fiber of our lives. The more fun you get in life, the easier the shit will pass with regularity.
3.Hair is good. Leave the body shaving to women and porn stars.
4.Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's expensive gear. It starts a vicious cycle that ends with a loss of touch with the roots of your passion.
5.Buck the latest fashion trends in a big way. As rock climber Ron Kauk once said, "John Wayne never wore lycra."
6.Be happy with what you have. Humility is the path to true enlightenment.
