This is Laurie having a good old time in the river near his home. His brother, who is a fisherman, organized a fishing trawler to drive past the banks of the river and make little waves for a Creative Destruction episode.

Laurie was an invitee to the 2010 Eddie contest. Not an easy feat.

Two of Lauries favorite past times: Surfing and fishing. The garage is filled with a quiver abundant in both.
