What are the chances? On a recent short trip to New England we needed to find a restaurant for dinner and decided the Outback Steak House in Leominster Massachusetts would be a good call.
After we were seated our server introduced himself as Don and took our drinks order. He commented on our accents and when we said we were from Northern Ireland he was surprised as he had just returned from a trip there himself.
He explained he had been taking part in the Redbull Foxhunt. I couldn’t believe it as I have quite a few friends who took part in it too. It turned out Don had become quite a legend at the Foxhunt as the only American taking part , and his awesome bicycle acrobatics.
Don would love to return to the Foxhunt next year and is coming up with ideas to fund it as the one and only #BostonDon . Keep an eye out for www.bostondon.com very soon too.
It was incredible to have our paths cross 3000 miles from home , what are the chances?
