I have no fashion sense. I mean come on. Don’t worry about the same thing every day Now I’m a little worried about how these turned out We’re gonna stand out that’s for sure All right before everyone gets here I want to give you guys a quick tour of these that made the amazing get up here check this out just freakin beauty over there and all right, so I Really like these because it instead of staying at a hotel you get a sense of community like everyone’s hanging out together There’s no big separation by the rooms. We’re all in the same place and we can Congregate after the rides and for meals and beers and stuff, so this is Ryan What up, dude, and we just got this big room. We’ve actually got five of these for the whole trip It’s pretty amazing got a full kitchen hanging out. I’m doing some work right here and out back here is Got bathroom there, then we got the garage full bikes, and then I’ll show you guys upstairs This is pretty sweet, and so this is my room which I’m so stoked about I don’t know how I ended up with the the master suite – check this out full-on bathroom It’s really not that exciting and then there is I think two more rooms three more rooms back here.
