“I tried riding with people, but it just becomes something different. It becomes more of a social thing. You end up sacrificing what you want to do for the sake of the group.” Eric Brunt is an outsider — in style, attitude and conventional understanding of human pleasure. “What I ran into was that I wouldn’t get these big days done. And I didn’t get that same feeling that I craved. It’s just too much work. Where we going to meet up? Oh we can’t do that, I don’t want to do that. I just got sick of it; I don’t try anymore.”
