Our First V-Day!

Monster Jam! The gap in the teeth helped me fit in...

Well, I dragged Shelley along (...okay, I'll give her way more credit - she came very willingly) to the Monster Jam in Salt Lake this weekend - on Valentine's Day. What a cool girl friend! She'd been before as a little girl; this was my first time. Honestly, compared to motocross and what I've seen of Monster Jams on TV, I was a little disappointed. They didn't line up RV's and school buses to jump over, and they didn't even destroy anything! Give me a break!

Regardless, there were still some cool parts. Like when "Maximum Destruction" flipped over, or when the dirt bikes came out and did some SWEET tricks on this huge jump. There's a few videos below.

Basically, I didn't score a ton of points in the "Most Romantic Valentine's Day of Her Life" category, but who cares. We were together and having fun the whole way. After, we shifted gears completely and went to a small cafe in Salt Lake for some hot chocolate. It was freezing outside and a delicious cup of creamy hot chocolate with my sweetie was just what we needed. The atmosphere of the cafe, with its smooth jazz and cozy fire, was in sharp contrast to the monster muscle machines, smoke, dirt, and screaming, accompanied by two hours of Limp Bizkit, Metallica, and Kid Rock.

As I told Shelley while we were leaving the Delta Center, "I've set the expectation low, next year can only be better!"

Maybe she'll add some commentary on the monumental event later.

Backwards Bob rips it up!

Yep, we wore ear plugs. Don't worry, we could still hear everything. Our personal finance professor would be so proud.

This part was awesome! For 10 minutes these three guys came out and did some sweet tricks on their dirt bikes. By far our favorite part.


  1. Sorry it's taken me so long to find your blog! I'm so glad I found it though! Trevor...I'm sorry about the surgery! I had braces put on when I was 9 years old and the memory of that (which is nothing in comparison to what you are going through) is still very vivid! I hope everything continues healing as it should!

    It looks like you guys are having so much fun! Good luck with wedding plans and school and everything else!

  2. I hope you'll have many more years together. great post!Asheville Used Motorcycles
