And because I like to keep up on customs and traditions…I checked out Scottish Hogmanay traditions on Wikipedia. That infallible source of the people. ┬áThe entry had me at chicken wire and flammable materials. Dave and I went for a bike ride down to a brewery on the island (this is a sort of broken tradition dating back to before kids, when we had time to go on a 30 mile bike ride then stop for a sampler). Now that it’s relatively safe to bike here (Hawaii – not so much), I decided to reinstate the tradition for our anniversary. Needless to say, I was pretty buzzed biking back uphill after a few samplers! We took it slow and got home in time for me to undertake this adventure. See bottom of post for the video.

    Dude, that’s so cool!!! Love all the pics of course! Happy Anniversary!! 16 years for us on Friday. We are super stoked about our anniversary trip to Harry Potter (Universal Studios FL) for the 2nd year in a row. We got used to this tradition before the plane even landed last year! HAHA!! That fire spinning action looks fun! Was it a bit tricky to stop?? Did you just spin it into a fire pit??
