Coast to Coast on the Tony Hawk Tour – Entry 6

Day 9: Affina Hotel New York, NY to Hilton Mystic miles traveled 146

This morning we woke up and had to get out of New York.  I thoroughly enjoyed myself in New York.  I wish I could have had one more day to see a couple more things. Unfortunately that’s not how the tour works.  Trying to get the bus loaded this morning with half the team in the middle of the streets of New York was stressful but classic. People honking, cursing, and using hand gestures were abundant.  After getting everyone’s bags in the bus we were off to the next skate park in Groton Connecticut. We got to thepark and there was a fairly good crowd. I would guess 550.  Tony twitted about this one only two hours before the event.  Still people showed up in herds.  The team killed at usual.  MVP of this day for me was Jaws.  After signing some autographs and playing the ride game it was time for us to head off to our hotel in Groton.  Tune in tomorrow for good times on the road with Tony Hawk.
