Motor Scooterist Clark Hurst Is At It Again

Clark Hurst, the diehard Georgia fan who rode his motor scooter from Athens, Georgia, in an effort to make it to Pasadena, California in time for the Rose Bowl, is back at it. 

Last we left off regarding Hurst’s journey to the Rose Bowl, he unfortunately had to ditch his scooter thanks to mechanical issues in New Mexico. He then hitch hiked his way to Tucson, Arizona, where one very kind UGA fan offered to pay for his plane ticket to LAX International Airport.

Hurst endured problem after problem throughout his journey to the Rose Bowl. His final obstacle came when Rose Bowl security prohibited Hurst from bringing his beloved helmet into the stadium with him. Oddly enough, we witnessed the entire interaction unfold. (for what it’s worth, the security guard was being a total stick in the mud).

Hurst would go on to witness one of the greatest games in the history of Georgia football that Monday evening in Pasadena.

Though the season may have ended, Hurst’s journey continues.

Two months have passed, and Hurst has returned back to the desert in search of his beloved scooter. Accompanied by a friend, the two moseyed along in a 1985 Chevy Jayco JayMini out west to the truck stop at which he left the scooter. Fortunately, Hurst was able to find his scooter right where he left it and return to Athens.

Nothing beats college football. Nothing beats a fan’s love for their team. These are the stories we will remember 40 years from now.
