eight08netwp 8 months ago

Date: Sunday, February 16th, 2020. Time: 4:30 a.m. Location: Waimalu, Oahu. I was definitely ready for a Sunday Funday filled with the shitload of Godzillas, Supras, NSXs, and Ducatis, but my two doggos “Gucci” and “Eleven” were definitely not. Sunday Funday. For many, it’s a day to share their time with family from sunrise to sunset. For others, it’s a day to reset, recharge, refocus, and relax. For yours truly, today was a day to go holo holoing around our island of Oahu with the folks of GT-RMY Aloha Chapter and Battalion30five Aloha Chapter on a Sunday Funday here in Oahu Nei

Rise and grind! Waimalu, Aiea by morning. The EIGHT08 forecast for the day calls for blue skies and fast cars. Fortunately for yours truly. my friend who goes by the name of Ikaika “Mokes” Mokiao who owns a 1992 Pandem Widebody Nissan R32 GTR offered me to ride shotgun in his Ford F150 during today’s GT-RMY X Battalion30five Aloha Cruise. I rode solo within the rear bed of Ikaika’s F150 the entire time lmao. Nonstop cigarette breaks FTW haha! Scary AF booking it up the H3 in the back of a fullsize truck while pacing GTRs, Supras, NSXs, and Ducatis. I usually pray to our Lord for strength and patience at the start of my day, but I prayed to our Lord not to fall off the bed of Ikaika’s truck bed on this particular day rotflmao

And if you didn’t know, well now you know! Battalion30five Aloha Chapter was created on Oahu Nei back in June of 2017. GT-RMY Aloha Chapter was created on Oahu Nei back in August 2018 with their California Chapter being their mother chapter. Six local based car clubs. One ALO\000/HA Cruise. The GT-RMY X Battalion30five ALO\000/HA Cruise

Check 1 check 2. Driver’s check. Driver’s meet prior to wherever the road may lead for the day
