I’ve just gotten off the phone with Jordan, hes given me the directions to his place (Hotboyz headquarters) and we’ll be there in about an hour or so. We’re hungry and so is he, perfect.
I’ve worked with Jordan and the rest of the DODO crew for just over a year now. Its funny when you see someone on Facebook, you talk to them through chat and share content with them but you have never truly spoken a word to one another. Needless to say meeting Jordan and the rest of the Hotboyz crew made me feel like I was going on a blind date.
Driving up to the house I can feel some excitement forming between my friends and I. We’ve seen the photos of the beige beasts and who the heck wouldn’t be excited to see a miata with an SR20 in it? After exchanging some firm bro-style handshakes we follow Jordan and his girlfriend Kyla to a local eatery that is highly recommended, Memphis Blues. Poutine smothered in immense amounts of pork and gravy to pulled pork sandwiches that will make you consider ordering seconds. We were more then satisfied once we left. Back to the Hotboyz headquarters to meet the rest of the gang.
A beige Toyota Cresta rolls through the back alley and parks. A tall, skinny guy steps out, its Jack Connelly. You can’t miss Jack on the track, he’s slingin’ his saloon with his Stig style helmet at every DU event and has been coming out here for a long time. His friend Eric Zapata can’t be missed either with his 1JZ powered 240SX these three are sure not to disappoint any crowd.
Now enough with the chit-chat, watch this video to get a good look at Western Canada’s fresh grassroots drift crew. I promise they’ll get you all hot and bothered.
Wow, it has been a long time since I last made a post or a video for that matter. I suppose moving from Canada’s “Best Coast” back to Northern Alberta might have a role to play in that. I’d have to honestly say that moving back home from Vancouver was one of the toughest moves I’ve ever made. With so much culture, people and things to do in and around Vancouver, I felt like moving back to Alberta was a death sentence. But then, I realized that moving back home with such a negative attitude was very selfish of me. When you are surrounded by good friends and family you really have nothing to complain about, and I couldn’t be any happier. Oh yeah, and one other thing to be stoked about, the Drift Union Invitational!
