My birthday came a few months early! Thanks to @lyledonoho for digging up this old picture of me. So excited. Never saw it before. It’s from the summer of 1984. My first road trip to a M.E.S.S. Contest in Kentucky. Drove down with Tom Groholski and @stevemanion . The ramp was in a trailer park and it towered over the homes. It was my first contest and I won my division. I got a G&S Billy Ruff Chalice, a powder blue Zorlac John Gibson shirt and some Schmitt rails. The I way figured it The stuff I won was worth about the seventy two bucks the trip cost me. Ha! It’s funny what we remember.
