One of my favorite things to do is travel. The thought of exploring unfamiliar territory excites me. On this adventure a few friends and I headed West. Amongst them was Kelsy Hoog, Kelsy Hoog is super energetic, always laughing, and one of the funnier dudes that I know. He just recently joined the Morpheus Cycles grassroots program. I took some time to present Kelsy with some Q and A's.
You're in high school, what do you think of Jocks? How do they treat you? Well I don't even know where to start! Um why in the world do they wear 2 pairs of socks and flip flops? And they all wanna beat me up... ha ha ha!
Yoga pants or booty shorts? Yoga pants are the greatest thing ever invented. Hands down.
What was the last movie you went to see? Ice Age!

Scarlett Johansson, Eva Mendes, or Jessica Alba? Well I don't know the first two...So for sure Jessica Alba!
How do they get the cream filling inside a Twinkie? Holy cow. This question is making me sweat. I literally don't have an answer for you on that.

You're driving your car, a friend is in the passenger seat picking his nose. He flicks a booger on the floor of the car. What do you do? I punch Dustyn Yust all the time for doing it...I made him eat one the other day! Dustynsto is the man.
If you had the opportunity to time travel where would you go? 1960s, 1970s (Greasers)
