Good Luck, Good Times, and Amazing People

Preface: This post was originally written 4/30/2009 at 4:44 PM right after I returned to the hotel from filming the vlog with Hilarie and Nick. Here is what I wrote in reflection of what happened.

As everyone knows I am in Wilmington scooping out my future place of residence. Well as part of my plan I decided that the best way to know a place was to see it's night life, get a feel of the people and the area. So I had choice a couple of bars a night to hit up just to check out.

The second night we decided we would find a nice small bar/pub to go to with not a lot of crowd to just sit and get a couple of drinks at. After circling Front Street 4 or 5 times we found a small place just off of it call The Copper Penny. 

We park right in front of it and go in and sit at the bar. Now to be honest I saw a big group of people sitting at a table and I didn't want to sit directly across from them so I made Lindsay move down the bar a little ways. It's a good thing we did because I was being my curious self and glancing up at the mirror behind the bar to just check out the happenings of others around us. 

As I glance one time I notice a white hair gentleman that looks an awful lot like Kris Kristofferson. Well after further glances (nothing to obvious you know) I realize it is him. Being from the south and a country music fan I was in awe. Here was in the same bar that I was. Now I might be a little slow on the up take because it took my brains a couple seconds to put together that he was in town shotting "Provences of Night" with Hilarie Burton. Now as you know I love SGP and HB so I start scouting the table a little bit more. Sure enough sitting on the end closest to me is Hilarie Burton. Now I will admit I had a "small" panic attack at this. After having Lindsay confirm that it was her we just sat at the bar and I pretended to be cool and casual.

After Kris and the rest of the gang left Hil relocated herself to the bar. By this point I was in no mental state to just walk right up and talk to her so Lindsay went for me. She was the sweetest person gladly took pictures (and a video by accident) and we let her get back to her evening. The funniest part to me was that she was just star struck by Kris and I was star struck by her.

She mentioned while we were talking to her that they would be filming the next day down on the Riverwalk if we wanted to come by and check it out. After watching them film a vlog, we did our piece with Hil. I can totally see why she was an awesome VJ because she made me feel totally comfortable and made talking to her very easy. After finishing filming we were standing around and the people writing the article from the Star News got our names, Hilarie suggested some places for us to visit and we parted ways.

Now I have been a follower from basically day 1 of SGP and have loved everything that this company has been and will be doing but this just put it over the top. The fact that these wonderful people would take an interest in me while I was here for these few days is amazing. They truly do care about their fans and are amazing people. They are just down to earth people doing something that they love and are willing to share it with the world. I will shout it from the rooftops, wear my SGP shirt with pride, and support these people until the end of time because they are the real deal. They are worth supporting. I have said it before and I will say it a hundred times you need to follow and support SGP. You need to buy the shirt, watch the vlogs, hop in the chat. EVERYTHING! Because giving them support is only a small way that I will ever be able to pay them back for the amazing experience they have given me here.
