Hey gang, it’s Coach G coming at you from Mechanicsburg, PA. It sounds like I left Knoxville just in time to miss all of the power outages and fallen trees.
With the help of my dad and sister, we put about 500 miles behind us to arrive at this little burg in Pennsylvania. We stopped here to watch the US vs Panama Gold Cup semifinal. It seldom resembled a soccer match, but we’re through to the final.
Many things have changed in the last 48 hours as it relates to Death Race. They altered the gear list, added new twists, and lengthened the overall distance and time of the race. The gear list, as it stands now, contains: goggles, Dixon-Ticonderoga, pencil, hand drill with ½” drill bit, hand saw, tape measure, axe or maul, 10′ section of climbing rope, carabineer, one twenty dollar bill, and two one dollar bills. Alas, the live fish has been taken off the list. So much for my mid-race sashimi!
The weather looks like fine Scottish weather: 50% chance of rain Friday and Saturday, highs in the mid 70s, and lows in the low 50s. “Ah, the rain is falling straight down. Well, slightly to the side like.” So now in the first week of summer I am worrying about hypothermia. I guess it’s like my mother always used to say, “Man, it feels good to be a gangsta.”
We arrive in the maple syrup conglomerate capital of the world tomorrow: Vermont. Talk with you all again very soon.
