Back ‘N Action

Oh yeah! I’m back and ready to bring the blog back up to speed. I’ve had a bit of a leave if absence for some time now along with a few technical difficulties but those days are over and I’m back for vengeance. So prepare you eyes to be bombarded with pictures, videos, and possibly a word here and there to glue it all together.

To say that a lot has happened in the last few weeks would be an utter understatement. I flew to VA, rented a car with a ghetto hand control setup, hung w friends, had an incredible Rollout, got a cold, drove to KY, played in the national quad rugby tournament, flew home and finally slept in to name a few.

Storm rolling in

As some of you know, mother nature tested us at this years Roll-Out. It’s not very often that the weather predicts a 100% chance of rain but on April 22, they did just that. They were right. It must have rained for 30 hours straight. But the show must go on… As a good friend and neighbor put it, “They didn’t cancel Woodstock because of rain,” So neither did we.

Here it comes…

Out of almost 70 preregistered participants for the 64mile ride, there was only this crew of Badasses. 52 degrees and rain wasn’t ideal conditions but it’s a sure tell way to separate the boys from the men.

Of course I can talk all of this shit because my buddy Topher and I rode 15 miles in the pouring rain with a wheel directly between our legs blasting our face with street grime the whole time. Haha

These four braved and froze on the 40mile loop!

The turn out for the run still held quite strong. The course went through a farm, past delicious smelling manure piles and out and back on a nice country road. As everyone returned to the barn w steam radiating from all directions, there was only one way to turn- towards the beer truck.

Can’t forget about the fuzzy muddy buddy walk!

Of course, as in years past, we were lucky to have delicious home made BBQ with baked beans, cole slaw, and a variety of other tasty treats. Thanks everyone who made this possible.

All in all a great success

Our rugby team had Nationals the following weekend in Louisville, KY. Louisville, KY is really a neat city. There’s all sorts of music, shops, and of course bourbon to indulge in. The team stayed at the Galt House hotel which has over 2500 rooms. It was nice to have the hotel just pushing distance from the convention center where everything was held. We ended up taking 3rd in division 2 which is quite an accomplishment considering how we started the year.
