I meet Aaron back in 2000. So I guess I have actually known Aaron 9 years....It's funny how 2000 was 9 years ago. Wild. Aaron and I have spent a fair amount of time together; road trips, contests, skate parks, restaurants, his house in Morgantown WV, my place in Athens, looking for alligators, street riding, bars, more than a few parking lots, and I have even held his baby. Aaron is a great friend to have, and that's all I can say. I asked him a few questions so here we go...
