Who ya gonna call?……Bob’s mom!!!!
Heading out on a 13 hour drive is a pretty big deal. Upon our departure from the Capital city, The Virtus Van was rolling 3-deep on our way to the Lionheart Adventure race in beautiful Ohiopyle, PA. Hoe-lee schnikeys.
Preparing for this 24 hour trial by fire found us logging countless hours on foot, saddle and canoe. We were as ready as we’ve ever been, and I think I speak for the entire squad when I say a reunion with our favorite New-Yorker was long overdue. But the question remained… how would we fuel ourselves for such a cross-country endeavour?
The answer was simple, we needed to call my mom.
When mom heard of our upcoming road trip, she asked if she could “bake the guys some cookies or something“. Of course I agreed to the cookies, but we never could have expected the bounty that would be bestowed upon us. The day before we left, she handed me two heavy bags, saying ” I got a few other things you guys might need.”
My mom doesn’t screw around, we could’ve picked up half a dozen hitch-hikers and still had enough food for a round-trip venture to Pennsylvania. Look at all that stuff!!
There was stuff in those bags we thought we’d never need, but by the end of the trip we had gone through about 80% of it. Who would have thought we were gonna need an extra pair of flip-flops or a bottle of antacid? I guess mom did:) Of course, this all in addition to a giant tupperware container full of homemade cookies. I can only hope there are more moms out there like mine.
