Summer Family Tradition

Written by:

For the past few years I’ve been headed up to Port Angeles, WA with my boys for the kick off of the NW Cup. This year it was just Gordo and I. Joey came along with us to fill in the hole and let us remain a traveling trio. The drive was boring and uneventful as usual. Can’t expect an exciting drive when you are driving an old Scion, thats not its forté. After some living room mental prepping the boys went to bed and in the morning we began our journey.

Started off with Gordo and Joey training to attack the trail on Thursday night.

Gordo isn't much of a morning person and so he appears to be on auto pilot while getting ready in the mornings. note the zombiefied look in his eyes.

Everyone had a blast at the race and we made the trek home in one piece. Next stop Skibowl! Hope to see more familiar faces out at this next race since it’s closer to home!
