Rolling Green Monster Empty Chapter1

Post by rocky69rhodes Tue Sep 30, 2014 4:03 pm

Well I started a!10,000 mile tour of Red sox nation with a cold wind in the air.I headed south from Boston an went to Pawsox Stadium (McCoy field),After doing a tour of the field I looked to see the RGM had rolled into a car ,my first of many mishaps on the road.I headed back to Boston an then went north to Maine  when the snow started coming down .made a beeline for Burlington Vermont to visit friends but got stuck in a snow bank on the way. Finally made it to Burlington but the RGM died going up a step hill an had to be towed.quick fix at the garage an I spent the night at my friend pats house. Time to head south in the morning as I was expected that afternoon at a Red Sox bar in Manhattan named Toms. while driving on the hiway in Conneticut a wheel flew of the RGM stranding me Rolling Green Monster <a href=Rolling Green Monster 300x3010" /> 4 $ days till Chester My friend from Virginia came to pick up the RGM an tow it backwards to Stony Creek Virginia.where he proceeded to get me back on the road.
