Day 5 - Boot recovery and Pipeworx party
Side Story - Some how left Ryan's Cantina party on Saturday with the wrong boots. But I really wasn't sure until I asked around and heard back that another Ryan who got in a taxi in his socks with someone else's boots in his hand. Lucky news was that Ryan was awesome enough to drive my boots to my place pre the Pipeworx party. Thanks Ryan!
