I got hundreds to thousands of photos through my life. A lot of which would match up to stories here on Cowabunga Corner, but for one reason or another they are not chosen. This does not mean that these photos are not worth sharing and do not hold stories of their own. I would like to keep sharing what I can here on the site, so whenever I can I will share a photo and a story to go along with the photo. If it’s a part of events that has been shared here, we will link back to the stories of the events themselves as well. Hope everyone enjoys. Today’s photo is of me at Oakland Mall.
I came to the mall with two friends, we were mainly just hanging out in Border Books, when I saw this sign out in the hallway. I knew of the Ninja Turtle Monster truck and never thought I’d see it in person, since I really know little to nothing about Monster Trucks. Before finding this sign I was having a bad day because it was snowing outside, and we were parked so far away that my friends needed to help me get inside as I was still getting use to the pain from my RSD, this is January 2005.
Thanks to this sign, I got to see the Monster Truck for a day at Oakland Mall, and the next day I went to watch it perform live at Monster Jam. Truly a great memory. I got to hang out and talk with the driver on both days, his name is Alex. He’s the second person to sign my autograph TMNT Shirt.
