Just figured I would do a little different style post. I’ve been kinda just hanging low and doing stuff around the house and with the family since after the Worlds and Reedy Truck Race. I really love my racing, but all the stress and pressure can really take it’s toll. It’s been great to have this time at home. Right after I got home from the Reedy Truck race, I got crazy sick. I think my body was just so done from the worlds and everything, but it was pretty ugly. Halloween is coming up and Megan loves this time of year. We all got our outfits and we are ready to trick or treat. Meg and Roz are witches, and I’m going for Frankenstein.
Here’s our pumpkins all carved. We even got a little carved one for Bella.
Since I’ve had a few weekends off, we’ve also got to watch a little football. I’m not a huge sports fan, but I don’t mind watching football. We don’t have TV at our house, so we will go over to the family’s house. It’s been awesome to see the Chiefs go 8-0
During all the preparations for the Worlds, then the actual race, I was off my road bike for almost a month. I’ve been trying to get in some miles, but I have also got in some MTB rides. Thanks to my awesome friends at Bike Source for hooking it up with a demo bike to ride. If your in Denver, Columbus, Charlotte, or Kansas City, hit up a Bike Source shop, they will have all the goods you need.
Finally got my Worlds car and trophy back from Japan. I was pretty bummed I didn’t even get to take them home with me after the race. It was awesome when the box rolled up. We had the perfect spot for both cars to display in our living room. Gonna have to make another shelf in that stone for the 1/8 🙂
Another hobby of mine, I know, too many hobbies, is painting. I’m into all different styles, but right now it’s graffiti style. Been working on this one the past few days. It’s not quite done yet, I need to go get some more paint markers to get it finished.
And lastly, today I went out to the track and ran some 1/8. Megan was at work, so me and Roz had a daddy daughter day. We hit up the RC track, got chipotle to go for lunch and ate it at a park, then went back for more at the RC track.
Roz had a pretty good setup up on the drivers stand. She was a trooper out there. We were at the track from 10:30am to 4pm and she was loving it the whole time. Oh….Roz also drove her car for the first time outside of the house the other day. She actually did pretty good, she almost drove it into the gutter drain once, but other than that, it was a successful first drive.
With that, I’m out. Thanks for checking in. This Saturday Megan and I are starting out journey to Indonesia. Be sure to check in on our trip and we will try to keep you guys up to speed. Thanks and God Bless.
