Creek at EXPO - If my van makes it!
« on: January 05, 2020, 07:00:11 PM »
Come say hi at booth #414!

Two days into the ride from Hell
Van loaded
23 boards and a bicycle 😮😮
None of them for the show 😂😂😂

The morning I left, it Took an hour to start - now every start is questionable

Only shut it off to sleep.

4 am today in Philadelphia, one of my headlights became intermittent

All this happened AFTER I paid to have some work done.
Never a problem till a mechanic touched it.  ???

1,000 done, 600 miles to go 😂😂😂

Are you staying in the Ft Pierce area this Winter?  I winged there yesterday. Ocean felt like an 80 degree hot tub.  ;D ;D

Safe travels, Creek!  Tino invited me to meet him there, so looks like I will be traveling to Fl too.  Look forward to meeting you and saying hi.

Following the GWs to Ft Pierce for the winter  ;D

See you there 805!

JimK
I got to the warehouse in Philly at 6 pm and took 2 hours to reload my van to fit the 21 boards. Left at 4am
Iíll see you in the Spring and catch up!

Sorry to miss you Don, but will definitely say hi to the amazing Danette!

Mechanics acknowledged that my van is messed up but have no idea what is causing it.
So one more long, high stress 600 mile leg tomorrow at dawn.

NJzzz
I will definitely slow down on the way back!
Not heading north till after the Carolina ProAm on April 20.
Then I am stoked to see my buddies in Virgina Beach for a while.
Late April, I may be ready for North Jerz, but you gotta turn the heat on!  ;D  ;D

Stoked that CreekVan delivered 21 boards safely to Spunkyís Surf Shop in Ft Pierce, Florida!!!

Gonna miss first day of EXPO, cuz I am having my van repaired.
Going to grab a ride with Jay, from Spunkyís, on Thursday.
Then spend some time with the Bert & Tino show. Good times ahead!!!

Made it to EXPO!!
Immediately went to see Robert at the Blue Planet booth and have a chat!
Evelyn Oídoherty, owner/editor of Standup Journal came over to say hi.
Very cool to trade SUP stoke and stories  :)

Hanging with Bert and Tino at the Sunova booth was eye opening!
There was a ton of traffic and kinda crazy interest in the surfboard line.
Folks wanted to buy all the boards in the booth.... they are loving the tech!

Oh yeah.... they finally found the faulty sensor in my van that caused all the problems.... all fixed and waiting for me to pick it up. 🤗👍

Have fun dude. I miss the energy of trade shows. Load up on stoke. I'll have to get over the pond and see Robert this summer.
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.

OMG!! Christian is off the hook! He and Bert has to be hilarious :D He's a San Clemente boy. We always thought they should have a reality TV show called meet the Fletcher's.
