The Trip Out
The GenRight crew left very early Saturday morning and started making good time. In Arizona, the trailer got a flat and then a second flat that messed up the fenders, and tore of the trailers license plate. Tony was able to baby the trailer over to Tempe discount tire in AZ who replaced the tires with 4 brand new ones. Once in Texas they hit a bit of traffic and met the Texas Border Patrol who were excited to meet the famous Tony Pellegrino and admire the GenRight Jeeps. They had a pretty sweet souped up charger! At the end of another long day of driving they stopped in an RV park. Luckily this park had enough room for the whole RV AND trailer with 2 Jeeps on it. (We’re pretty sure it’s longer than most Semi’s)
Pre-Gaming Daytona Beach
The GenRight road crew stops in New Orleans!
Taking a break from the long trip and traveling through several states, the guys stopped to check out New Orleans. There was lots to see and do with plenty of opportunity for scenic photographs and some nice relaxation before heading out on the road again. With night falling the boys got thirst and cruised Bourbon Street looking for an awesome pub. They found one and got some boudin balls, easily one of the tastiest creations mankind has ever created. Then it was on to Fishbowls and a fun night on the town. The next morning saw the guys at the Something Else Cafe, filling up before starting the next leg of the trip and arriving in Florida.
