Sometimes planets align and I’m actually able to make it out to an event I get invited to. I still had a lot of stuff on my plate, but I realized it had been a while and you just need to make time for things like this. My buddy Thomas (Red 05′ GT Mustang) shot me a message that he’d be going to make a few passes later that night and wanted me to head out there as well. Starting my day at 6am, still having a few things to do after my shift, I knew it was going to be a long night. So after grabbing a Mountain Dew and gummy worms – I was on my way; I seriously have the dream diet of a 6 year old…livin’ it up.
With the exception of the smell of bacon, there aren’t a lot of things that can get me out of bed early. I’m just not a morning person, and it’s too late in the game to change that. However- on rare occasions, NOT because I was scheduled to work, I’ll be up early getting my gear ready because procrastination is key- and then I’m out the door. Thankfully the first ever Cars & Coffee in Harlingen,TX starts at 9am – which is still early.
I hadn’t been out to a drift event for almost a year now, seriously I hate that I’m not even over exaggerating – the “Drift Wars” coverage I got went up July 2017…I suck. But sometimes things happen, plans change, life ends up going a different way; but if you get lucky the things you love that have to get put on hold end up knocking at your door at 2am possibly drunk asking for another chance- wait what? I almost didn’t answer that door, I almost decided to actually end this once and for all – for real this time. But I started realizing how much I would miss it, and around the time I decided to finally go at this full force I get a message from my buddy Carlos with a video of his 240 looking crazy clean followed by, “SA Gear-Trends feature? I’m heading up there the 27th” – let’s call this fate.
