Its been awhile...

So I have not really posted in almost a week. But I can explain, I've been on a trip with my family to North Carolina. The main reason was there see the Worlds Strongman Competition. Only they changed the date around and I was only able to see one day of the semi-finals with the actual finals going on Wednesday and Thursday. The rest of the trip was museums and beaches and my first time on a sardine packed airplane. All in all I have to say the trip was nice the stormy beaches especially nice the worst part was of course heading back to a dirt hole like Oklahoma. And now I can only get my computer to work by laying the tower sideways,,, I took the thing completely apart and reinserted everything to make sure nothing is loose and still if there is a slight movement it will not turn on. Luckily I keep all my stuff on an external hard-drive so if it never turns on I don't lose anything. Back to the competition the athletes had to pull a 26,500 pound firetruck 25 yards or so on an incline after it had just rained. The only guys able to pull it across the line were two Americans Brian and Josh, and the last with the fastest time from Iceland named Thor. Afterwards the was three rounds of dead-lifts with cars weighing 800 pounds. The first round was seeing how long they could hold it and the other two was how many repetitions in seventy five seconds. I have a lot of footage on it but its packed away and I plan to post it soon. The competition was great but ESPN was there and kept interrupting the flow of things for their interviews, I swear the lady changed her outfit ten times in two hours. Plus they kept asking the audience to cheer so they could have shots to edit. All I have to say is you try cheering on a wet race track cold as all get out, no thanks. Anyway look forward to some amateur shot videos of the world strongest men!
