Well, my mom and I drove to Phoenix from Vancouver a couple of weeks ago and it was quite the trip. It took us two and a half days to finally arrive.
It was a fun trip though. We stopped in Las Vegas on the second night and it was neat to see the crazy atmosphere there. I had never been before so it was a bit of an eye opener.
When we got to Phoenix, I unpacked everything at the Pang family's house. I'm really excited to be staying with them. They are a very nice family and we've been having lots of fun for the past few weeks.
Last weekend, I flew back to Madison, Wisconsin to say hi to my teammates from last year, my buddies, and my girlfriend. It was great to see everyone again.
Now that I'm back here in Phoenix, I'm just training hard to get prepared for Rookie Camp on Sept. 12. I ran Camelback Mountain the past couple of days and I've been skating with the guys at the Ice Den. I can't wait for everything to start up. Hopefully, I'll see lots of you at the exhibition games during the camp.
