Today was a pretty interesting/long day. It was super fun even though limited riding happened. If you for some weird reason saw my post from day one and was curious about who was moving… Well, it was Gary Young. Moving up to the North side of San Diego. I snapped a bunch of weird and funny photos from the day so check out the captions.
Alex and I were supposed to be at Gary’s place at like 8:30 to start loading up the truck… but the alarm clock got set to P.M instead of A.M… Oh well, we were on the move by 9. I dominated with a Red Bull for breakfast. Awesome.
Dirt Ron wandered in a little after Alex and I with his new hair cut. There are a lot of things that come to mind that said about his new style, but I am sure somebody would end up offended so I will pass.
Obviously there was trophies to be moved. I know I suck at taking photos. In the third photo you can see about 200 racing trophies from way back when. The one being held up that you probably can’t read says “Top Cock Award…Beginner Division Street.. 2nd Place”. One of Gary’s many old trophies.
I am pretty sure this photo in itself has a lot of history. That would be from left to right 3 or 4 old Dirt Bros Industries Gary Frames, and then the different versions of his MacNeil frame over the years. That was super cool to look at for a while.
This photo was just funny because all three of them spent about 5 minutes trying to figure out how to get the legs of the table off. They were supposed to detach pretty easily. After they got one off somebody told them to just leave them on. I know that isn’t as funny to you as it is to me. This next photo will make you laugh.
There were a few mice in Gary’s garage that he had been trying to get rid of for a while and couldn’t. While digging through a closet in his garage, we hear a pretty girly scream come out of Gary’s mouth when he discovered this bad boy. I am sure some PETA dude might be pissed about this next part. The trap that Ron is holding the mouse above is pretty wild. Basically, it is an electric chair for mice. Moments after this photo, the mouse was zapped into heaven. Gary forgot to tell us that would happen before the mouse did a drop in. R.I.P little buddy.
The label explains it all…
Upon digging through boxes of old BMX Plus, Ride, and other magazines we stumbled upon this little gem. This would be a photo of Gary and his now wife Sarah from their prom in 2001. I should be selling this photo to some gossip magazine.
The man himself dominating that big ass Budget Rental truck in reverse.
Seeing as this is the first time near an ocean for me, I had to take the typical photo of the ocean seen in the first.
Kosman and Gary were neighbors until today. After we dropped the first load, Alex, Kyle, and I rode the car pool lane back. Since we got about an hour ahead of the rest of the dudes we stopped at Kosman’s to chill and watch the new Give D! edit seen below. I snapped that photo off his deck. Thought it was pretty.
Go to BNQT for more videos.
Alex modeling some NIKE ID shoes. So awesome.
After all the fun of moving was done, Alex and I proceeded to meet up with Steve Kerr and some other S.D Locals at the “hot spot”. I got a flat and one of the guys hooked me up with a tube, very much appreciated. Due to it being dark, and me using a little point and shoot camera the picture action was weak. I snapped this massive wall ride by Steve Kerr. So gnarly.
So, that would be day two. I am about to crash for tomorrow. I am not sure exactly what is going on yet but I am sure there will be some entertaining photos at some point. Thursday will be a real good day, but you will definitely have to check back later to see what that is all about.
