Guru-guru Camp is one of the highlights of my year and it is also a lot of fun for the kids and adults on Niijima. This year, it was a little bit too fun for my hoops.
Three were chewed by Tank the dog. Two sprung apart with snapped connectors. Five hoops were shredded on concrete to the point where the tubing was scratched. That was a good day!
I brought 11 hoops to camp. I left five of them behind for the garbage man; I felt guilty for discarding them, but they were too chewed up to repair. I shipped the rest home to fix up for harsh environments and rough play.
Love your hoops to the max, then turn them into hoops for the beach. More love, more love, more love.
