well definately will have hard core reefer within a stones throw,going to carbondale for a few days help a buddy paint some apts,love carbondale night life
I love Carbondale. They’ve got a great mall there. It’s around a 30 minute drive from Mt Vernon. I loved going there. Haven’t been there since I was 12 maybe. That was almost 25 years ago o_O I’m strongly considering going back to Hawaii but I know reefing is so hard there oddly.
