Boise Fitness Expo 5/8/2010

Me & "FURIOUS" Pete.  He was supposed to eat a 7 lb hamburger at the Boise Fit Expo, but they messed up and only brought the patty.  He wanted all the buns & fixings.
So, Blimpie sandwichs stepped in and provided 15 sandwichs for Pete to eat.  They also asked for 3 volunteers to see if they could match Pete.

"FURIOUS PETE" chowing down!

Me and Corey.

Corey was rocking the Bulky Boy decal on his car.  Representing in Idaho!

Those 4 plates on the right weigh 150 lbs each!  They were previously owned by our late friend, Reggie Barton.

This was Reggie Barton's Yoke, and Corey now has it.  However, it was so tall for me that I had to stand on some bumpers to stand up with it.  Its locked in at that height.

When I landed in Seattle, I ran into big Hacienda Leifi.  I used to volunteer as a strength coach at Rainier Beach HS, and Hasi was one of the kids I used to help train.  It was great to see him, and I'm gonna send him a Bulky Boy shirt cause he wears a 5xl. 

After competing in Sequim the night before, I flew to Boise to participate in the "Boise Fitness Expo".  This is my 3rd year in a row that I have done a demo there, and its always a great time.
