So I'm finally getting over from a weekend of drinking way too many Margs and way too many Stella's. My Sex and the City party at the Town Square Tavern went off and I had a great time. Great turn out with people throughout the whole bar and a steady dance floor all night. Come Sunday morning...10:00 and my head kind of hurts, but that doesn't stop me from going to Jackson Hole Film Festival's special film "199 Lives." A story about my favorite Nut Case of a guy, Travis Pastrana. If you do not know who Travis is... well I don't know what to say other than this kid takes the word EXTREME and rips it apart with whatever he can get his hands on... mostly from twisting the throttle of his RM 250 dirt bike. He basically transforms himself from a world class motocross racer to the worlds best freestyle motocrosser ever. This film is not just about him hucking his meat, but his life from a person with a passion for Adrenalin. The double back flip at the 2006 X games was definitely impressive enough, but there are some pretty amazing footage of him jumping out of planes with no parachute, launching into the Grand Canyon with a girl holding on to him riding a motorcycle (road bike) and rally car racing. If you take Evel Knievel's life and multiply it by 10, you'll get Travis Pastrana's. And he's just 24 years old. He is surprisingly a living legend willing to take these calculated risks with the reward of living. Check out the flick when it comes out on DVD. In the meantime watch this teaser. Life is good man... keep it exciting!
