Notes: Schaefer started this place in 1993 and lived here while it got off the ground. Then he went and started a bar in Ybor called The Bricks. Find him there and he'll most likely buy you a beer and then bus your table.
Schaefer poured his heart and soul into the making of Moat Water and the SPoT 20 Year Anniversary Lance Mountain Decks. Check the story behind it and how it was done here:

New Year's Day started out mellow at Seamus' ramp until Schaefer brought gasoline to the fireworks pit. Here's a minute of it and how the world ended in 2012 with a huge explosion on the flat bottom. Happy 2012!

We would all love for our GPA to be 4.0, but some of us have to just settle for that being our age and blood alcohol content. Happy Birthday, Schaefer! For Schaefer's birthday party, I made some photo props. The one of him and his brother Glen made the rounds to everyone that was hanging out. I cut Glen's head out so everyone could take a photo with cardboard Schaefer. I couldn't just throw away Glenn's head, so what else do you do with it? Put it on a stick. If you weren't old friends, you became new friends. Thanks everyone for posing with my silly contraptions: Cardboard Schaefer: The Life of the Party.
