Damnit Jim, I'm excited!

Posted 10-27-2011 at 12:48 AM by beefsalad

Going to be parting ways from the 9er for over a week, but I'll be hanging out with my cr250 for a couple of weekends, then dragging it back home with me. I look forward to the rides to come, hate the rides I'm going to miss here, and am most certainly nervous as hell about the whole thing. My Audi was totaled and my S-10 has 227k on it. It has certainly seen it's better days. It's going to have to carry me 800mi round trip. This trip sort of has to occur. I'm an independent contractor, and without a reliable car am shit out of luck for work from my primary contractor. This trip is to pick up my dog that my brother has been watching for me for the past few months and to pick up my dirt bike. It's going to be longer than originally anticipated, as I will have a little bit of work (paying at about 30% of what I normally get) while out at my brothers house. The deal with getting paid only 30% of what I normally make, is at least I will be getting paid. For the last week and a half I haven't had a damn thing to do besides apply for jobs, ride the 9er, eat, sleep, and shit. I'm not complaining but none of those pay the bills. So here I sit, ~4hrs from departure unable to sleep. Why? I know I'm forgetting something. I swear there is something here at my house I have been meaning to take to my brothers for the last year but keep forgetting. History will probably repeat itself. We will be out doing something and I'll exclaim DAMNIT JIM! My brother will look at me weird as hell (his name is not Jim, and he does not get the reference) and I will have to explain to him what a dumb ass I am. Such is life. I guess I should be used to it by now. Hopefully I'll post up some pictures, if not some video of us tearing it up. Either in the dunes or on some single track.

    Sounds fun! I really miss the dirt. If I had lots of time I would probably race mx again versus street riding. But I don't....

    Enjoy the trip! Loved the Trek reference my the way.
