So what did I do all damn week - Well Royal Purple said do you want to do interviews?
I was like - hell ya. They said we also want to have a “C10 Nation” day. I was like i like the sound of this. Win/ Win.
So I did interviews for Royal Purple and thought - oh ya - ill knock out interviews after that. Well It was tough. and the video guy had to go edit video. So we just did a few C10 Talk Facebook live videos - they actually have gotten some good traction. So check em out.
I’m not sure if I can pull em off and drop them into YouTube - but that would be cool.
I was also able to do some pod - in the magna flow booth - Ill get those out asap too.
Ok - so SEMA - Monday was pretty chill as we were getting the lay of the land - We shot a few video’s with RP and That was a good get things going day. I liked Monday - as it was chill enought - but all the fellas where either there or rolling in. So we got to help a bunch of guys and see rigs roll in - which is always cool
Tuesday - Opening day - Halloween. Oh man - so many people and trying to be at two differt places at once - because a lot of people do their unveils that day. All in all great day and fun night - I think we all went to the Piano bar that night. I didnt realize it but it was loud and i was probably yell/talking - so that next day my voice was not feeling to good.
Wed - more of the same, I would knock out some interviews and try to get out to see trucks i wanted to see. Man the one truck that had people around it at all times was Craig Piggots - River City Rods - EPIC C30 Camper. From TV people to everyone people - it was a fan fav and a SEMA hit. He had that thing loaded with alcohol - hell ya it was a hit.
Thursday - C10 NATION DAY - the banner, the truck, the shirts, and most importantly the people!!
but we grabbed a quick shuttle and headed south towards Hendo/Boulder for some Off road trophy truck fun - Torq and Tacos
Friday - Run and gun, tried to see as much as I could. I rally wanted to check out as many trucks or even cars that I hadnt seen.
