Alright guys, I dipped out of the tundra known as Minnesota for this week. I am going to try and give a day by day update of what I am up to. Seeing as I am staying with Alex from Give D! so you know good things will go down…
A last look at 4 degree weather called Minnesota for a week.
This is day one…
To be entirely honest today’s post might not be the bomb because I didn’t really take any pictures… Tomorrow I will, I promise.
So, today I woke my ass up at 5 a.m to drive an hour up to Minneapolis to hop a plane to San Diego. It was weird because I was a row behind a kid who skateboards where I am from. Totally unplanned. It was cool since I hadn’t seen him in close to a year.
I have been planning this trip for 9 years. Not really 9 years, but I have wanted to go since I started riding. This trip actually semi got planned at Interbike and just now happened. I am pretty stoked to finally make it happen too.
“I expected the Rockies to be a little more… rocky. Yeah that John Denver is full of shit.”
I got into San Diego about 11 a.m their time, 2 hour time zone difference throws me off. I am super tired and it’s only like 10 p.m right now. Oh well.
Alex scooped me up at the airport, we went and met up with Chris Hervan. Hit up a little bit of street, and a sketchy little “skate park”. There were a bunch of little ghetto kids playing basketball next to the park. I thought it was funny how they were following up the match with a cigarette…kids now days are so messed up.
After that Alex and I went over to Mission Valley. It was fun, the ramps there are huge. I was most def. not surprised to realize due to riding once a week if that due to winter that I could hardly do anything. Oh well, still really cool to check the place out.
After that we hit up some mexican resturant that I am sure I will regret later. Following that, we proceeded to cock block Kosman at his place, and steal his Red Bull. Kosman probably just made a G reading this. After the blocking of cock we headed back to Alex’s where I am right now.
That was day one. Tomorrow sounds like a lot of riding, doing some moving for a certain somebody whose name drop will not be said (better check back tomorrow), and a few other things. I will document better tomorrow with lots of photos.
