Chasin the Chains Disc Golf Tour Life Stories

Chasin the Chains Disc Golf Tour Life Stories


– Come on Jeremy. – Comin’ Bobby, jeez. Gimme a break man. – Here. Carry this. Let’s go! (happy intro music) Alright we are Day 2 into our trip to Bowling Green for the
amateur championships. I’m sorry, it’s Amateur
Championships at Bowling Green. We’re getting a little
bit of rain down here. Jeremy and I worked a
little bit this morning. Got the video done that
you watched, if you haven’t watched it yet,
you can go watch it. Click on the link above to
watch our first day here. Jeremy got some work done as well. Now we’re heading out to go check up with Tyler Searle and Chris Wiggins the Chasin’ The Chains RV Road Warriors. It’s raining on us right now. What’s up with that Kentucky? (happy music) Alright, we found the RV. We’re gonna back up there so we can unload some of this stuff off the RV. (passerby yells) What’s up (laughs)!? You got this Jeremy? – Yeah, I got this Bobby. – You sure? – Now if you were driving though (laughs). – Whatever. – What are you doin’ Chris? – Gettin’ ready to head to check-in. – Oh yeah. Are you guys tearin’ down? – Yeah. – Oh, we came just in time, huh? – Yep. – Alright, it looks like we got here in time to help them tear down. So we’re gonna help them tear down the RV and we’re gonna head back over to where we were yesterday to
help with the check-in. (lively music) Alright, so we made it back to the hotel setting up for the
second night of check-in. We thought we were gonna be
inside but now we’re outside. Now the dilemma is,
can you just unlock it? – No, I can’t. No Bobby, I’ve got to protect you. – So the dilemma we’re having here is all the other RVs are set up over here but there’s these cars here. So they’re gonna set up over here. (laughs loudly) – That day? – Yep. We’ve got that I think. – It’s your life man. – The RV unloads itself (laughs). (laughs loudly) I packed it perfectly. – That’s amazing. (laughs loudly) That’s one of them new RVs that– – You think it’s the van that’s the jam? Nothing on the self-unloading RV. – Yeah. – Don’t hit the dude with the RV. – Just to make sure.
Dude! Dude. – Dude. – Dude. (upbeat music) It seems that where we’re at behind me is the whole, it’s not the fly market, it’s just people are checking in and it’s kind of a setup vendor setup. Anyway, on the other side,
there’s a golf course and apparently there’s like a tournament going on all day because there’s quite a few people out here
playing some ball golf, or traditional golf or just golf, whatever you wanna call it. Is it weird that when
I look down the fairway that their driving on
that I wanna just get– I almost wanna grab a trespass
and just rip it out there. Even while they’re in the
middle of their drive. Just run up there and right in the middle of it just throw a trespass and say that’s real golf. (upbeat music) – Again! – Ohh!! Oh! Oh. – What’s up marksman? – Not on the marksman. Marksman said no (laughs). – Alright, we’re gonna take a quick break from the little vendor village party, whatever this is. We’re gonna go over to a sports store called The Nat Disc Golf. – Nat’s. – Nat’s like natural? – Nat’s. – Like little gnats? – N-A-T-S like the gnats that bug you. – Oh, anyway Nat’s. Apparently there’s a store called Nat’s that carries our stuff. So we’re gonna go check out
and see what they’ve got. They actually, a couple of the guys, the workers came over here to check us out and say hi at the RV, so we said we’d come over and check them out. – Very knowledgeable about disc golf. – Were they? Yeah. – Very knowledgeable. – Yeah, one guy said he played like two or three times a week. So, really cool stuff. I’ve never heard of Nat’s Disc Golf. – Well, it’s just Nat’s. They sell a bunch of
stuff, not just disc golf. – Oh that’s true. I’ve never heard, is it
just called Nat’s Sports? – Outdoors. – Outdoors. I’ve never even heard of Nat’s. Maybe natural. I’m trying to figure out
what Nat’s stands for. – Just Nat’s.
It can’t be! You’re not gonna name
your store after a gnat. – It’s Nat’s. It’s like
– You’re a gnat. Alright, let’s see what
Nat’s got…for us. Little ol’ Nat’s. Oh, that guy bought a disc. Whoa! This is cool. – What’s up!? – What’s up!? – Long time no see. – I know. – It’s been like five, maybe six minutes. Somethin’ like that. – This is beautiful. This is an awesome store man. – Yeah I mean we’ve got everything. – This is nice. – Like kayaks, some of
them like this one’s sold. Ceiling, dude everything man. – Bicycles and of course disc golf. – And of course we’ve got discs. – There we are. Nice looking wall. – I have a lot of bags. – We went through a lot of them already. And yeah, we really need to reorder. We just got some of your stuff in. – This has been a big hit. – We didn’t order a heavy– – Dude, I mean we stocked up. Like– – Strong hands make champions. – Oh man, let’s get a
picture of us with this guy. – Are his eyes okay? – You think we could, you think we could get him like with a disc or somethin’? – I don’t even think he– (laughs loudly) (chimes ring) – Oh. – Let’s go kayaking. – Let’s go kayaking. Well that was a really cool store. Nat’s Outdoor Sports. Very cool store. Thank you so much Nat’s
for carrying our stuff. You know what, I’m gonna
keep it real real quick. I’m gonna keep it real. – Keep it real Bobby. Keep it real. – When I’m travelin’, it never gets old to go into a store.
– Bye guys! – See ya!
See ya! (laughs loudly) – That looks like fun. – It never gets old to go into like an academy or to a disc golf shop and see our product. Stuff that we work to put out there into the disc golf world, into the world and then to walk into a store and to see our product and hear that they are excited about our stuff. I don’t think that will ever get old. Do you think Jeremy? – No, it never will. It’ll never get old. – It’ll never get old. – And they are becoming
a buyback retailer. – Buyback retailer, which– – I have no idea about. – I know. So good stuff all around. We’re gonna go back and check out the RV. – Hey cool daddy. – What’s up!? – How’s it goin’? – Good, how are you?
Awesome. – Thank you man. – Thank you buddy. Thanks for comin’ by. – Thank you so much. – Okay, hope you enjoy that.
Yes. – Thanks a lot. – Awesome. – Marksman on top. Recruits in the middle. Recruits on the bottom. They are all combat disced golf out. (lively music) There you go. Come on. Oh! Ohh! Ooh. Get in there. Oh. (lively music) – I’ll tell you a story about, actually we’re gonna talk about right now. – What? We’re getting ready to take off and we notice that the guys left the back of their RV open. Oh yeah, put it on. So, tell us the story. – Well, they just left. They left the back door open. It’s exciting to leave sometimes. Funny story about that is, probably six years ago with Adam Searle, we were leavin’ one of the courses and going to the fly mart. I think it was the fly mart. We’re cruisin’ through
Western Kentucky University and all of a sudden we
turn a corner and I hear metal hitting the ground
and all of a sudden I was like, oh my gosh! Somethin’ fell out of the
trailer and we stopped. Sure enough we forgot
to close the trailer. (laughs loudly) – How much had fallen out? – Just the clothing rack (laughs). – Oh wow! – Well it was kind of
shut but it wasn’t locked. It wasn’t fastened. We had just like, yeah. And we threw the clothing rack back in. A couple cars behind us were wondering (laughs loudly) what the heck was goin’ on and we’re– And we survived another day. So it’s always an adventure. It’s always an adventure in the RV. – Adds to your life. – Adds to your life. – Hey guys, so we– (laughs) What did we do? Where’d we end up at? We ended up at, we watched Ricky try to do, he didn’t beat his– He didn’t beat the score, did he? – No. – No, he didn’t beat the score. – He came very close. – He was fatigued. – Very close. He was fatigued. But anyway, I thought it’d be interesting cause we’re up here with a couple of the Chasin’ The Chains RV drivers. Chasin’ The Chains Road Warriors, Tyler Searle and Chris Wiggins. I thought it’d be kind of
fun to do like a Q&A-type of segment to the vlogs here. So I gotta couple questions I wanna ask, cause I know, hold on. I know that you guys get like a lot of questions about being on the road. So tell me first, tell us first what’s the best part about being on the road? – Is it you? – I don’t know. It’s pointed at me. So I guess it’s me. The best part about being on the road is all the people you meet and all the different cultures you can experience. Going from place to place. It’s amazing in one week, I can go from people who talk with totally an accent I can barely understand to a totally different accent I can barely understand. It’s so great and it’s
really awesome to see. It’s great to get a whole grasp of the culture
throughout the entire country. I think that’s number one for me. – I can’t remember what
the real question was, but I’m gonna just play off
of what Chris’ answer was. My favorite thing about being on the RV is pretty much the same thing. It’s just the people. It’s the people and the parks for me. I say this all the time. I really enjoy being with the people that are in that community and learning about that community. Being able to have just
that little snapshot of what they are doing and how they’re growing the sport and what’s
happening in that community. It’s just so fun. And then being able to
learn how to help them improve what they’re doing. It’s just so awesome. I love it. To see people happy and excited to just be at the event
and with the event, part of something that’s
new and fresh is incredible. Then on a personal
level, I like being able to go and play on the course by myself and be in the park and just enjoy. Have that snapshot of
like you said, the nature of what the course is and the park is. – Okay, to be honest, what’s the worst part about being on the road? – The worst part for me is
getting sleep in the RV. It’s like my number one hardest thing. I’ve always struggled with sleep forever, but when you’re in the RV, you’re staying in random places. Sometimes it’s so hot or
it’s so cold, vice versa. It’s so humid or so dry,
depending where you where. It’s sticky, gamey.
– The worst. I think that’s the worst. – Yeah, you’re talkin’ about sleep. It’s the humidity (laughs). – Yeah. – It’s the worst. – I think it’s pretty
balmy in the car with it. – You can’t escape it. My worst thing outside of not being able to sleep because it’s
humid and just everything is stuck to everything, which is horrible. It’s really bad. – That’s really a way to describe it. – It’s horrible. The next worst thing for
me is probably just– I tell everybody, I love all of you guys but it’s like six great
days and one weird day. There’s always a weird day. It’s not because necessarily the people. It could be the city or just, there’s something that the vibe is weird. You can’t call it– It could be your city this week and next year or two years from now your city can be fantastic. But there’s always a weird day and I never know where it’s gonna be. And when it happens, you’re
like today isn’t fun. And if someone like at
home, when I’m at home and someone is like you
have an amazing job. I say, yep. I’ve got– They’re all good days and
then there’s great days. – Yeah. – It’s always good, even when it’s weird. – I wanna know like an interesting story you can tell us that
just pops in your head? – Alright (laughs). – I can think of one right off the bat. – Go for it. – Maybe we can talk about it. – Should we put a disclaimer on here? Okay, hold on, hold on. Okay guys, put your kids to bed if you’re watching this video. – It may or may not go sideways. – Yeah. Cause I’m not sure what they’re gonna say. So let’s see what happens. – Is KLS incident acceptable for this? (laughs loudly) – No, that one’s out. – No, no. This will be a– – KLS is a code word for no. – This will be a different edition. (laughs loudly) – Yeah, they’re at some point and time– – Later at night, but right now, really weird moments, let’s see. There was– – Wait, wait. I got a really great one.
– You gotta go. – Okay guys, never knock on the RV. Like if you see the RV parked somewhere and it’s dark outside, don’t knock on it. – Any RV for that matter. (laughs loudly) Any RV. I mean why would you do that? – Never knock on an RV. Are you kidding me!? – It’s scary.
Yeah. – And like, if we’re parked
somewhere, we’re done. It like, it means a driver is cashed. When you stop driving the RV, it means you can’t go any further. – Yeah, especially if it’s midnight in a Walmart parking lot. – Yeah, a hundred percent.
Please. Yeah, 8:30, if it’s dark and it’s 8:30, I may be asleep because I’m so stoked that it’s dark and I can go to sleep. – See the RV Chasin’ The Chains a message and we’ll
answer it in the morning and we’ll get you whatever you need. – Yep. – But please, not then. – Or you can message Felberg
cause a lot of people think that’s Felberg drivin’ the RV. (laughs loudly) It’s not though, but– – Is Ricky Wasocki on this thing? (laughs loudly) – Sorry, it’s just me. – So there’s, this is last year. About a year ago probably,
roughly a year ago. Jay Ray and I are out. Like Jay is just gettin’ started. We’re training Jay up to figure out if he wants to be an RV driver. He flies into Cincinnati and we hop in the RV and we’re driving, I think to Lexington the next day. So we’re drivin, we’re drivin’ and we try to go to a truck
stop and it’s 100% full. Nowhere to park and sleep. Take him to another one. Take him to another one. We go to three truck stops. This is Jay’s first night on an RV. We are exhausted! (laughs loudly) And he’s like, oh my God. You can’t sleep when you wanna sleep? I was like, no this happens. – Negative. – I was like, we finally find a truck stop where we can find a parking spot to sleep for the night. We get like saddled into a little spot right there in the truck stop. It’s super full so we’re lucky. It’s like key off, lights
off, hop in the back, drop the curtain and
boom, boom, boom, boom. And we’re like (laughs). I had like made it to the back of the RV and Jay was like still at the front. I’m like, you’d better see who it is. – Yep. – He’s like, it’s my first day and I gotta answer the door (laughs). – It’s time to learn. – And he throws the
door open and it’s this super awesome dude from Finland. He’s like disc golf! I love disc golf! (laughs) We’re like, thank God! (laughs loudly) – Oh wow. Good. – This dude is like– – He’s hiding though
right, as you’re dying? – Yeah. It’s definitely like baseball bat’s here, hammer’s over there. – Baseball bat’s like, oh yeah. (laughs loudly) – I love disc golf! I’m from Europe. I only throw latitude
dynamic and Westside disc. And we’re just like, fantastic. I’m here learning to drive
semitruck for my mother. (laughs loudly) He,s–
– Awesome dude. This dude is literally in
a semitruck driving course with his sponsored driver drivin’ around America in an RV. – And he’s like we have to stop. – You know and it’s like 10:30 at night and he’s like get down,
get down, get down. So it was super great that he was excited and I’m very happy that it
was a positive experience. It could of been very
negative and it was great. He was very polite. He just said he loved us
and like, it was great. The next day he somehow was still there. In the morning we’re gettin’ gas. We got him a frisbee. We got a picture made
and it was phenomenal. But that was weird. That was, there’s a million of these stories.
– Yeah. But don’t knock on the RV in the middle of the night if it’s dark outside. – Yeah, please. (laughs loudly) – What about you Chris? You think of a story? – Ultra weird, one sticks out for just a really weird morning I had. So I was making a long
connection between stops. I had a day off and was
crossing the desert basically. I stopped in a certain town. I guess I won’t name the
town, not to belittle them. – When that chamber wants to sponsor our tournament (laughs). – Yeah. Not to belittle them but
there was a free spot to stay at a Walmart. Some Walmarts are overnight
friendly, so careful. (laughs loudly) – Some aren’t. – And some aren’t. But this one was good and
I’m like alright, I’m tired. It’s 11:00pm, I need to stop and sleep. I stop, park in this Walmart. I’m like, this is a good spot. I sleep. I wake up in the morning to my alarm. I’m like, alright time
to get back on the road. And I get all my stuff together and I pull up the curtain. I hopped in the front seat and there’s someone just sleeping on the ground right in front of the RV. (laughs loudly) Right in front. And I’m like, what is– There’s like a sleeping bag and sleeping pad like right there. Man, that’s a like homeless guy. That’s a really weird
spot to camp (laughs). This is super weird (laughs). – Did you back out or you– – I didn’t have– I was backed up to
– Backed up into, oh wow. The end of a spot, so I
couldn’t go out the front. (laughs loudly) – Is that bizarre or what? – I was like, dang I have to– I’m gonna have to get out
and ask this guy to move. This is gonna be really weird. (laughs loudly) So I’m like, alright I’m gettin’ ready to go wake up this homeless guy and be like, hey man, just a few seconds hiatus from your spot
here and I’ll be gone. So, go out and go out the side door. – Cause you don’t go out
the driver door, no way! – No. No way I’m opening access to the cab. I go out the side door (laughs) and I open it up and there’s
three more people sleeping. It was like a perimeter. (laughs loudly) It was like a perimeter of homeless people sleeping in the shade of the RV. (laughs loudly) They were clearly using the morning shade. I’m like, oh my gosh guys. (laughs loudly) I see what you’re doin’ also. This is like, I’m in the
middle of the desert. There’s not a tree in this parking lot. You guys got the shade understandfully. (laughs loudly) But still I have to leave. – Throw shade on their sleep bro. – So I don’t put my shade on your shade. – I open up the door and to the sound of it, some of the guys on the side sort of rustle and their like, ahh, hey. And I’m like, you guys chill, there’s a guy in the front, sorry. – The problem’s up front. You guys are good.
– Yes.=I go, and I’m like,
hey man (leaned down), hey, hey, hey. He goes, whoa. Oh, hey man, sorry like are you trying to get out this early? Dude, I used to, I played disc golf. (laughs loudly) I’m like, you do? That’s cool. Awesome. And then we exchanged a few words back and forth about disc golf. Of course he’s like,
in California in 1974, I was playing this course and we were throwin’ at trees and blah, blah, blah. And I’m like, that’s
super awesome man, yeah. He’s laying on the ground. He doesn’t even stand up at all. He’s just laying,
lookin’ up at me talkin’. (laughs loudly) I’m like, that’s cool. Alright, well I’m just
sayin’ like I gotta go. I gotta get to an event. I need you to move to the side, like I can’t pull out. And he’s like, oh yeah, it’s cool, it’s cool man, yeah, cool. So he gets up and gettin’ his stuff and as he’s movin’ to the side, he looks up at me and he’s like hey, I mean do you got like
discs and stuff inside? (laughs loudly) And I was like, well
yeah, I mean I got stuff. He’s an old school player and I don’t blame him for asking but it was kind of a slap to the face at that point. He looked at me and was like, do you have any of, and he named an exact disc of a certain other– (laughs loudly) – Not the bus you were drivin’? – Some other manufacturer like just a wholehearted look in his eyes. He’s like, do you have any of those? I’m like no man, I’m really sorry. I only carry these. He’s like, oh. (laughs loudly) Okay, never mind. Moved to the side and I’m
like, cool man, thanks. I get in my RV and drive off. (laughs loudly) (claps) – Excellent story. Excellent story. – It was absurd. – Oh good. Good stories, good questions for the RV Road Warriors
for Chasin’ The Chains. That’s gonna end it for this
vlog episode for Bowling Green. So we’ll be back tomorrow. Gonna film some stuff that we
do out tomorrow at the course. And then of course, figuring out if me and Jeremy are gonna head back to Emporia to get things
rollin’ for glass. We’re goin’ over and helpin’ everybody back in Kansas get ready
for that, so adios. We’ll see ya. (happy music)
