Hope we don't get too drunk before our 5am departure time tomorrow. It's going to be a long drive. By the way...my trip to Baja started from Fort Lauderdale, FL.
Brett shared a story with me about something ridiculously funny that happened to them at the expo. Wish I was there.
Some guy approached our booth...I might not be quoting accurately but here's the jist of the conversation.
Brett: "Hi we're Team TCB. We're racing in the..."
Some guy: (interrupted Brett) "Oh yeah! I know who you are!! I've been following you on Adv!!"
Brett: "That's awesome man! Thanks for..."
Some guy: "(interrupted Bret againt) "Which one are you?"
Brett: "What do you mean?"
Some guy: "Which rider are you?!"
Brett: "I'm Brett"
Some guy: "Oh, you're not the guy who falls all the time? Where's the guy who falls all the time?!!"
Brett: "Oh...you mean Scott."
Some guy: "Yeah yeah!! Where is Scott?"
Brett, Allan, John, and Ed: "HAHAHAHAHAHHHAHAHA"
Not sure I like being known as the "guy who falls all the time."
But either way...I'm just glad we have followers.
You know Ewan McGregor gets that a lot too.
