The last few weeks have continued in the reasonably ludicrous manner as usual. The Gold Rush Challenge was a fantastic event bringing out many spectators, racers and media. The dance parties in the loco on the way to from a 3 girl, 3 night a week stripper bar, waking up to find JM drunkenly pissed on a pile of clothes. Oh ya, that was race day! Some great racing! My favorite moment was definitely Kibblings' pass on Douglas Delua in the Semi Finals. That night we laid low, after removing the hay and having beers by the fire reminiscing about the race. The race hill was fast, tech and the party was full of foggy memories.
On Sunday we made our way to Whistler, for yet another crazy night of mayhem and a day of skating Kadenwood. The crazy boys from Arizona really know how to keep up with crew from the Loco. We had the best, most expensive sushi I have ever had, went wild in the Loco while also chilling at Aia's. The Loco had some down time getting fixed up and cleaned after a few wild adventures.
The Loco came back to Vancouver to grab passengers for the Williams Lake Race, Sheeps Creek for Speed Freaks. The Loco loaded up and made Began It's trek towards the "Puddle" known as Williams Lake. The Loco passenger list included Nick Dunmall, Joshua Shannel, Ryan Baker, Dave "Guff" Leslie, Stef "BoobsMarley" Onaski, Yann from Montreal, Cody "Shadow" Tidsdale, Jeff "Woodie" Woodfine and Matt "Hoodie" Shaw. The drive to Williams was a a series of break downs and over heating issues, once my exhaust broke off from the manifold we were stopping every 20 minutes till the sun went down. In the cool temp of the night we rolled straight on into the OverLander Bar in Williams Lake. There we met Bricen "Striker" Lyons and he introduced to many great locals from the puddle. Huge thanks goes out to Bricens Mom!! WE love you!! Thank you so much for having us to stay with you!! We will be back by for next year and again before the summers end! The race was 2 rounds 3 heats with Bricen taking the WIN!! Off to the lakeside and liquor store to relax before going to skate and chill for the evening. The next day we rolled into town to enjoy the car show and get in on the pizza eating competition. Joshua won the pizza eating comp and the Loco won the Car show "Hard Luck Trophy", with out even entering the Car Show. We took off that night and had some of the craziest times the Loco has Seen to date. From nearly dying, crazy hitchhikers, boozing, roman candles, wrong turns, nudity, injuries and making back to tell the tales........to be continued!!!
