Our man on the road Earl Stout III hung out with the boys from Long Trek for St. Jude boys and managed to ask then a few questions, as well as skating the day with them…
When did you start skating this trip?
And from where did you start?
Uncle Funkys board shop in the lower west side of Manhattan. Jeff Gaites is awesome!

What motivated you to do this skate across the USA?
Darrians cousin was diagnosed with AML acute myelogenous leukemia before his first bday in 2011. Christopher dorian Mitchell did not make the fight to his second bday. He spent the last couple months at St Judes in Tennessee.
