Pt. Mugu State Park


“When Uncas follows in my footsteps, there will no longer be any of the blood of the sagamores, for my boy is the last of the Mohicans.”

The Last of the Bachelors

After some debate, Lakshan decided to celebrate the end of his bachelorhood with a surf trip to Pt. Mugu, just north of Malibu.  This is a story told in pictures, and possibly some odd quotes that won’t make a whole lot of sense unless you happen to be drunk.  Enjoy.

Stocking up on supplies

Band of Brothers and chair

As it turns out, the trailer came in very handy.  We stopped in Malibu for some groceries, and imagine my surprise when the guys returned with an office chair and a Roman column.  As the old saying goes, never pass up a free Roman column.

Pillar of Truth

“The situation is that his guns are bigger than mine and he has more of them. We keep our heads down while his troops dig 30 yards of trench a day. When those trenches are 200 yards from the fort and within range, he’ll bring in his 15-inch mortars, lob explosive rounds over our walls, and pound us to dust.”

“I saw nothing that would lead me to the conclusion that it was other than a raid by savages bent on thievery.”



“But he knew the consequences, and he stayed. Are those the actions of a criminal?”




“They’re going to hang you. Why didn’t you leave when you had the chance?”

“I ain’t your scout. And we sure ain’t no damn militia.”

“Haven’t you got anything better to do on the lake today, Major?”


Cy and Lopez


“You’ve complimented me with your persistence and patience, but the decision I’ve come to is this. I would rather make the gravest of mistakes than surrender my own judgment.”


Wild fennel

Steve makes a discovery

“No, you submit, do you hear? You be strong, you survive… You stay alive, no matter what occurs! I will find you. No matter how long it takes, no matter how far, I will find you.”

-Steve referring to his precious fennel seed

Drying off

“Death and honor are thought to be the same, but today I have learned that sometimes they are not.”

The honorable one


“When the Grey Hair is dead, Magua will eat his heart. Before he dies, Magua will put his children under the knife, so the Grey Hair will know his seed is wiped out forever.”

Jaime and Mike


“Nathaniel’s word’s been good on thie frontier a long time before you got here.”

Bedroom view


“They do not live their lives “by your leave”! They hack it out of the wilderness with their own two hands, bearing their children along the way!”

Weird face

“Great Spirit, Maker of All Life. A warrior goes to you swift and straight as an arrow shot into the sun. Welcome him and let him take his place at the council fire of my people. He is Uncas, my son. Tell them to be patient and ask death for speed; for they are all there but one – I, Chingachgook – Last of the Mohicans.”
