SF Bulls Staff Blog: Jason Lockhart

Now that things have settled down for a couple of days, I want to take the time to reflect on that doozy of a road trip we had at the start of the season. Eighteen straight days on the road was certainly an adventure of epic proportions. From San Francisco to Alaska to Idaho to Utah to Colorado and back again, the Bulls racked up 5,500 air and road miles. Without further ado, I give you some of the highlights, including the best and worst parts of the trip.
