And then, Duff.

"I started smoking pot

at a really young age.

"Fourth grade, to be exact.

"I took my first drink in the fifth grade.

"And tasted LSD for the first time

"in the sixth grade,

when I was offered blotter acid,

"by an eighth grader, on my way

to Eckstein Middle School in Seattle.

"I first snorted coke

in the seventh grade, too.

"I also tried

"codeine, quaaludes and valium

"in middle school.

"My best friends and I started

hot-wiring cars in middle-school."

Andy had heard something

about the pre-'63 VWs.

We found out that you could actually

use a Swiss army knife

and you could start old VWs.

That you could start the engine

with a screwdriver.

That dashboard.

I don't want to give all the tricks away.

We stole a few cars.

I was actually a little more

prolific at it than Duff was.

We'd go to these parties

over in Ballard.

Which is far from

where we were from, in Seattle.

And we'd have to walk or take the bus.

Now, the bus stopped running at 1:30.

We couldn't take the bus.

So that's a long walk.

How am I gonna get home?

Hey, you steal a car, go home.

Dump it a couple blocks away,

and you're walking.

No harm, no foul. We always called it

borrowing. We didn't call it stealing.

But I was involved in more

car thefts than I can count.

And more than I'd care to remember.

But Andy, I think, at the end of his run...

It was something like 112 cars he stole.

I lost count after 200, but, um...

"By the end

of the summer of 1984,

"I began to think that

if I didn't get out of Seattle then,

"I might never get out at all.

"I could make it to L.A. in my old car,

"leap-frogging from crash pad to crash pad.

"Maybe land at my brother's

apartment for a few nights.

"But beyond that,

there was nothing in particular

"drawing me toward Los Angeles.
