Beach Walk 221 OTR – Tyler Lucky 13

Join me on a late night adventure with a group of 13-year olds, updating an old tradition among friends.

For those of you who are new here, I usually walk the beach with my dog Lexi in Hawai’i. But I am on the road traveling for my job, so you get to come along with me! I like to think of Beach Walks as much as an attitude as a place. A place where we explore the edges of the known world, and think differently.

In my youth, “tp’ing” a friend’s house was definitely kept secret from the parents. Nowadays, it’s a little different. My parents (over 80) have been covered twice in the past six months and no one has a clue as to who or why. But they’ve laughed about it each time.

In this show, Mom drove and set the rules: a limit on the number of rolls and it must be a friend you like. We don’t often to get see this in action, so hope you enjoy… And is there anyone who hasn’t been at the receiving end of a few rolls of toilet paper? If so, please LMK!

Hawaiian words
Hauʻoli lā hānau: Happy Birthday
Keiki kāne: boy

Be in Touch!


  1. I like the funny faces at the end!

  2. Very funny, gang! I suppose the faces were blurred to protect the guilty!?!

    Wait, wait, wait… The parents drove them there?! Next I suppose you’ll tell me that that the boys didn’t even steal the toilet paper?

    “Back when I was a boy,” creaked the Secret Old Cameraman, “not only did we have to sneak out of the house, we had to plan the event days in advance. You see, if you grow up in a small midwestern town, where everyone knows everyone, at 13 years old you can’t just walk into your local Safeway and buy toilet paper. Chances are you even have family working there. No way. You had to slowy “stockpile” toilet paper over several days or even weeks so no one would notice it missing.”

    “We didn’t have cell phones, either! No way. We had to make plans at school and just hope the rest of the gang showed up, didn’t fall asleep, and were able to sneak out of their houses without getting caught.”

    “These kids now-a-days have it so easy with their cell phones, and Sony 360’s, and MyFaceSpace, and their parents not only driving them to the crime scene, but providing the weapons as well…”

  3. hahaha!! i know these boys, it seemed like so much fun, me and my friends recently tped eric and tyler and all those people for erics birthday party!


  1. […] it in this episode. I think there is some subtle influence here of “YouTube”, as both Tyler (#221) and Jordan I used to think of as rather reserved, and yet both of them wanted to join me on Beach […]
