hey there everybody! This is shaun murray sitting in the back of Andrew Adkison's truck with Trevor Hansen to my left. we have been driving to Acworth since earls this morning. pretty much taking our time, stopping when we feel like it, especially when we gotta go. just trying to enjoy the trip. it's not about the destination but the journey, right?! i guess this weekend is more about the destination though.
!!!we just had a funny story happen while I was typing that last sentence. at the last gas station, T hansen got sugar daddy's for everyone, but i passed this go round. as andrew, his girlfriend Iris, and trevor are talking about going to the dentist, andrew looks into his sugar daddy candy stick and realizes his filling in now lodged into it. "I'm Suing!" he shouts.
will give you some updates as we go.
you guys got any questions? we have about an hour and a half to go. it's 3:15 eastern. later shaun

in case you were wondering, i am on andrew's mac with a wireless card. No Big Deal.
andrew definately feels a rough spot on his tooth.
trevor says his dentist is a way better dentist.

say thanks to trevor (see how we're on a first name basis already?) for signing paul naney's wakeboard. that was super cool of him! oh - and you guys should swing thru colorado sometime - the only "pro" i've ever seen ride is steve jones! (briscoe doesn't count cuz there was too much alcohol involved). oh - and i wanna see a video crash clip to I Hate Kate's "Always Something." just a suggestion! p.s. bet you could sell that sugar daddy w/filling on e-bay!!

Tell Trevor and Andrew the CIE guys say hello, and that we're practicing our ping-pong game for a rematch.

Oh yeah, don't tell them, but I predicted that you would win the first stop. So don't screw up! I have big prizes on the line.

I think you should consider a similar roadtrip to The New Jersey Wakefest on June 30!

Shaun, make sure all three of you get in your pics for our Pro Tour Prognostication before midnight tonight. I want to see if you bet on yourselves! :-)

Trevor just had a big pop from the sugar daddy, ha! teeth still in tact.
Dave, most of the time i would say me, but we have all been pretty stinkless so far.
Umali, wasup?! good to hear from ya.
kylie, trevor says no worries and glad he could help out with a hook up.
Andrew bit the foil and he screamed, ah! foiled again, hahaha! now that's funny, i don't care who y'are.
CIE boys, they were already talking about your ping pong marathon. in fact, when we picked up trevor early this morning, andrew, trev and I got a few hits on the table tennis before we hit the road.
Alex, wish we could make the trip. summer's already booked, but good to see you got a wakefest going on up there. if anyone should, it should be you guys, the biggest thread posting state on here! right?
we are going around the atl. loop right now.

Good luck guys... Have fun.

I'd say my ping pong game is coming along, but that'd be a lie. It's got a long way to go before it reaches Andrews level. I swear there's some chinese in that guy. Definitely not japanese by the way he handles those wasabi shooters. Maybe a relative of Forest Gump. Ha, ha... Sorry.

Shaun, throw a stick up in the air, when it lands, drive in the direction it points.

Good luck guys. The only thing better than being on a road trip with friends to ride in a tournament is sitting by yourself at at a desk at work in meetings, wishing you were on a road trip with friends to go ride.

You guys have inspired me to leave early for the weekend, thanks. 2:50 central time...

jrod, threw a stick out the window, but didn't see it land, we are doing 40. did see a guy on rollerblades bite it behind us though!
Old     (xbones)      Join Date: Mar 2007       05-18-2007, 12:54 PM Reply   
stay on 75 if thats the way you are coming...285 is better but since you missed it you'll just have to suck it up and ride 75/85 through town.

...4 ish on friday in downtown...I don't envy ya'll...75 will be absolutely slammed heading up to the lake.

You might want to take 41/Cobb Pkwy to beat the interstate traffic once your on the north side of town.

Site seeing in Atlanta...nice! Take a left at the next light. You will be headed in the right...or maybe wrong direction. It's a 50/50 shot...or is it a 25/25/25/25 shot (n/s/e/w) or is it....????you get the picture...More foil...more foil.

I pick Shaun,Andrew and Trevor to win the first round, I think I have a great chance!!
Be safe guys and best of luck to all of you!!
Thats just weird my three favorite riders are all in the same rig going to the first stop.

Stay off of 20 at this time of day!!!!!! Take the connector through downtown and then 75 up to toona.

Shaun, if you do float an air biscuit in the truck, are you the type of guy that says something in enough time for people to roll down the windows or do you try and hold in the laughter until everyone has had a taste and figures it out for themselves?

Very important question!
Old     (melanie)      Join Date: Apr 2001       05-18-2007, 1:04 PM Reply   
I triple dog dare you to do a chinese 540 fire drill. Or a 1080 drill if you so dare.
And yell out the window to anyone on a bycicle, rollerblades, or motorcycle to do a wheely.

Shaun is definitey the roll up the windows, turn on the heater, and wait type.

Didn't you see him shootin boogers out of his nose in Retro?

Hey Shaun this is Eric from Wakeboarders For Christ Do it Big man! If you come back through Arkansas holla at us so you can meet some of the crew and we can meet you guys!!!

Melanie..... I'm not sure that a 1080 drill has ever been recorded. It'd definitely be a technical rarity and must be regarded/respected as such.

I like the wheelie thing. LOL!!!

Anyone know if there are any Ping-Pong training camps. I need complete immersion training to get to peak form before any re-match occurs.
Old     (shaun_murray)      Join Date: Sep 2005       05-18-2007, 1:16 PM Reply   
made it through downtown but sittin in some 25 mph traffic. just talked to kyle rattray, he won his heat and said it was super windy there.
Stan- depends on who i am with. 9 outta 10 times i will either say "sorry i'm gonna fart." or "sorry bout that, i farted." the other 1 time i will sneak out a deadly one and keep down the laugh till others say something. don't know why, but you know what i'm talkin about when i say that is funny...for a while.
some of you are gonna be like "i can't believe he wrote fart and farted!" I watch oprah, she talks about poop and you know y'all fart a bunch throughout the day. enough about farts.
xgirl. i like your ideas, good stuff.
trevor is still working his sugar daddy and saying he is feeling sick. but he said "quitter's don't win and winners don't quit."

see? this is the problem with men and directions. did anyone ever think of just taking the very next exit and backtracking? p.s the tinfoil thing was hilarious!
Old     (tcluv85)      Join Date: Jan 2004       05-18-2007, 1:20 PM Reply   
Pick up Pop Rocks at the next stop...those can be fun and not so deadly on the fillings.

Also you can play the 20 questions game. 'I am thinking of a top wakeboarder' can you guess who in 20 questions...that type of game. Entertains for hours sometimes on road trips.

I am currently talking to Andrew right now and hear Murray singing an amazing melody in the background in between yelling at people on the side of the rode. Murray i think you have a future as a singer. That or as the crazy old that yells things at small children and passersby. just livin the dream.

Trevor here, Shaun Drops the first bomb!!!! Enough said.....oh wait I just finished the biggest Sugar Daddy in the world. I have been working on it for almost 2 hours. Wow Andrew and Shaun are getting in to it about Andrews braking skills in traffic. It feels really awesome after a 2 hour sugar daddy. Iris and Shaun are hanging out the window...

I hated leaving the thread...I was closing down my computer at work. Man...this thread was fun. I second the motion that when Shaun, Andrew, Trevor go out again..they should give us a play by play on this discussion board.. Way too much fun. Don't forget, any dental can always fix them with good old tin foil. You guys are a blast. Hope to catch up with you on one of your stops. Hang loose!

Ok I have to say something here....Evan just so you know....I have never lost a game of ping pong in my life. I was at a church retreat with about 200 guys last summer and one night everyone was playing ping pong...well there was this one guy there who nobldy could beat...he won like 25 games in a row. I watched him for a while and new I could beat him so I got in line...Not only did I whoop him, but the next three games I played left handed and whooped him to. Not to toot my own horn but we need to hook up and have a pin pong championship.but you have to promise you wont get mad when I kill you and mock you as I slam the last point down on your head.
