Hook-Up : September 19, 2012

If I were still back home in St. Louis, odds are I would be standing around a bonfire welcoming the start of another cool autumn. There is no better way to start spend a weekend than with your friends, bullshitting and knocking a few back while you try to bag the token hot girl. Increase your chances buy upgrading your clothes and getting the dirt out from under your fingernails. Here is a starter kit, compliments of Anton.
