ScooterQuest ‘08 follows three friends as they travel across the Eastern coast of the United States.
I woke up this morning (by morning, I mean 11:50 am) and started my daily routine of emails, calling a few people and some brunch. After helping with a local barbecue (I don’t want to see steak for a long time.) After I became extremely motivated to have my scooter modded out with the proper equipment to stream the entire event live! But I’m not an electrician. So I called in a favor from an engineering genius… My co worker and friend Mike.
I’ve only known Mike for less than a year, but hes a stand up American and expert on and off the computer. From electronics, to mechanics, this man has “The Knack.”
I’m very happy I could rely on him on assisting me with installing the cigarette lighter so I could draw power to whatever I need. The installation of the cigarette lighter itself was quite easy and very little wiring even shows. It’s like it was always there! The entire project took a little over two hours and was quite painless.
So with that said, I do want to publish an open message to Mike: “Thanks man! I’m SO in your debt! You really helped this Scooter Quest happen!” After a test run around the neighborhood I realized quite a few things about having this installed:
There is a local scooter ride in Utah valley in the 16th if anyone wants to see my dirty work over at The Scooter Lounge at 6 o’clock! If you aren’t there, or can’t make it, then be sure to check out the website later on the 16th for pictures, and videos!
It all started in 2007, with a friend driving from Minnesota to Utah to grab his scooter. Once Dustin Saunders reached Utah, he rode his scooter back to Minnesota with nothing but his friends and the will to drive it back against all odds. In 08' Dustin, Michael, and Sean embarked on a 3000+ mile trip unscathed. Ever since then, we travel in the name of adventure to the most epic places in America.
