After a much needed night of sleep and some Trailer Park Boys, I can get my thoughts together and reflect on the tour as a whole. Let me start by saying there is not one track that we went to on this trip that didn't leave us with good memories. For the last entry I'd like to share some of the best memories of the trip for me.
The second to last stop of the GTDT was the Vurb Classic at MX207. Aside from the fresh ass track that Danny Stu and his family had prepared and all the awesome racing, the real memories were made doing other hood rat things with my friends. I ate some of the best seafood I've ever had, played some intense games of pool at a local bar, and even took a canoe out on an amazingly scenic lake. Shirk and I couldn't believe how sick Danny's cabin was. It gave us an opportunity to drown out all other noises, look away from computer screens, and realize that owning a lake house in the future was obligatory.
We made another stop up in Massachusetts to film Marshall and the JBR crew which was reckless as well. The boys were out sending it off huge hits in the sand pit which was so dope to film. Wes got some crazy shots, we had some good BBQ, shot some guns, and drank some beers around the fire (to say the least). The whole stop up in the New England area was so much fun and I cannot wait to go back.
Since we were heading down to Muddy Creek for the Top Gun Showdown, we were able to make an unexpected stop at my house again for a quick trip into NYC. We got into Manhattan when the sun went down to be greeted by the flashing lights and jumbotrons of Times Square. Wes ended up getting us these crazy tickets to experience the Empire State Building to the fullest, and although I've been in the city plenty of times, witnessing the city from a quarter-mile up was insane.
Now that the tour is over, it's great to be home but I'm also going to miss traveling around so much. I can't thank Wes, and his mom Leslie enough for taking care of me and providing an opportunity to be a part of vurbmoto. I also would like to thank Shirky for inviting me on this trip considering I would still be at home in PA if it wasn't for him. Also, I had a great time meeting Ashton and having a blast when it was the trio in the beginning. I wish it could have continued. Get better soon man! It was also great to see some old buds I hadn't seen in a while, and meet a bunch of new friends on the trip (there are too many to name). In conclusion, the third leg of the GTDT was a success, everyone had a great time, and hopefully I can be part of another one! Keep rippin'!
