Funny, two weeks ago me, my brother and some friends went for a night street session because we wanted to try a spot on a highway. After half an hour it was getting boring, so we drove to a chill place and had some beers. After a couple more hours, we decided to go on a road trip to the south of France. So we went to bed and the next morning we bought 7 crates of beer (when it comes to beer we are kind of Patriotic), four bottles of whiskey and some spaghetti. We left at night and arrived in the morning at a bowl in Metz (France). We rode a bit, then left to Nancy for a really old school open peanut bowl, which is very tight/vert/sketchy. My brother loved it and was all over the place!
After that we just slept, played Frisbee, drank beer, cooked some pasta. At night we drove to the South for 7 more hours to “Greoux les Baines” to the trails of Black Jack (of the “People Jam”). It was really hot and we were exhausted, so we just went swimming, drank some beer and cracked some drinking coconuts! Around 5, Black Jack showed up and we rode for an hour. The trails are amazing! Afterwards, we barbequed and more beers of course.
We slept outside next to the trails and woke up early to have a cool morning session. The rest of the hot day was chilling, swimming and of course, more beer! We also made some drinking cups of the empty coconuts—the best cups I ever had—perfect for whiskey/coke, and, as my friend is a smoker, I made one with a cigarette holder… hehe.
That night we had an evening session again and with a stupid little jump my brother broke his collarbone. Went to the doctor and he called for surgery.
So we drove home 20 hours, arrived, went to hospital and they said, "Its ok, no surgery." So we bought some extra crates of beer and drove to Germany for the rest of the weekend and spent most of the time in the WTP office (they also have a little hangar with ramps at the moment). So, except for my brother’s bad luck, it was an awesome trip. Especially because it wasn’t planed at all.
Only a pity nobody with a camera could join us.
