Chad Degroot in the land of the Rising Sun.

First flight of 3 next is over 7200 miles to Korea and 15 hours long. Clocking miles but days in a plane. Properly packed food in my bag, dranks, and entertainment. Gucci on repeat. Been a minute since I traveled so it’s time to pull some old school tricks. But not before dude next to me puked inside his backpack. In and out of sleep coma. Lots of movies. Lot of sitting. Saw on two occasions women going into the men’s room at two different airports. Only happy Japanese. So easy to be in a good mood around happy people.
Think they have it figured out or just don’t play the USA games? I’m good with all of this as most is out of my hands. By choice. I would not want it all. Who would. Getting deep this morning boys. Takes a few days of interesting perspectives and personalities meshing around in my head to refresh what is around me. I am here a long time and for the good times. You needed me to say this. Bmx is in my life.
Did you know It is shorter to fly the Great Circle route than a straight line due to the circumference of the earth being so much greater at the equator than near the poles. Pretty sure the earth is not flat.
20k miles flown

40 hours in the air

20 miles walked

20 high balls drank

20/15 vision I see clearly
Great weather, awesome food, amazing riding, and in my book as one solid pleasurable trip. Thank you.
