This past August when I went camping with my dad, step-mom and step-siblings I happened to run into a friend of mine from the BMX track I work with each summer. It was surprising because in all the years I’ve gone camping I have never ran into someone I knew there before nor did I ever think I would despite it being one of Connecticut’s most popular beaches/camping grounds.
It was later in the afternoon when one of my friend’s sons came by and asked if I had my camera equipment with me as he wanted me to film him and some of his friends jumping a dirt gap they had made on one of the trails in the woods. Of course, I had my camera equipment with me so I ended up meeting with him and his friends to get footage of them jumping this gap with their bikes.
They had actually made two. One was a smaller one for the average riders while my friend’s son and a few other boys took on the larger gap. The video isn’t much since it’s just clips of them jumping the gaps, but as always I loved getting the footage and putting it together and even more so, I was happy to do it for my friend and her son.
That’s all that matters, right?
