break last week, when he
wife, Stacey, on a seven-day cruise to the islands of Jamaica, Hatti and Cosumel.
It was real fun.The only thing I do not like was they made us dress up twice for dinner and I am not much into wearing a tie, commented Custer
.We were suppose to make three stops but we do not get to go to Hatti, they said there was a political upraising, so I am glad we stayed away from that.I really like Cosumel, I would like to take another trip back there sometime..
Back to business, Custer said he
is ready for some hard rodeoing, set to go into the week known as Cowboy Christmas, the busy Fourth of July, Custer
traveling partners will ride about as many airplanes and rental cars as bulls.
With the summer-season county fairs and town celebrations in full swing all over the United States, this week counts for more PRCA rodeos in one week, than any other time of the year…which comes down to points, positions and pay checks for the professional cowboys.
Every year I make a run in at the winter rodeos and again over the Fourth of July.If I have a good run then I will try to make it to the finals (PRCA National Finals Rodeo) said Custer
.I can not see of a better way to give my sponsors, ASE, Herculiner and Ultra Wheels better exposure, then going to the grass roots rodeos of my sport..
