Not that the trails in this vid are really my style but I couldn't be more jealous of the dudes in Southern Cali right now. Our trails are shut down for the season and we are reserved to riding a few little mini ramps and such to tide us over till spring. Speaking of minis...went to Bricktown last night...not impressed. As if it were possible the ramps ride worse than I actually thought they could. Ryan and Danny still managed to do some work but after about an hour I was ready to get out of there for the better part of the night...some Yuengs and wings. Happy birthday to Ryan by the way. Clown is turnin 26 on Sunday! None of us are gettin any younger but we still know how to have a good time. Sorry me and J. Kim are gonna be MIA to celebrate with ya but I'm sure there will be plenty of wild nights in the futre to make up for it.

Here are the pics from our last adventure to Ray's. Sorry they aren't the greatest shots and there aren't many. I probably took about ten minutes to shoot maybe ten photos...it was way too hard to get off your bike long enough to shoot anything. Maybe this time around we'll get some more photos or maybe someone else will be willing to stop riding long enough to take some shots. At any rate look for an update on that soon!
Oh and last but not least...Columbia park is opening its doors to bikers tomorrow night after 4PM. At least thats the word from Danny. I think a few of us are going to check it out and see if we can blow apart the ramps so that hopefully the dumbass that runs the place will accept our offers for help building ramps that don't blow donkey balls. After that we'll be headed to ABG for our weekly wing roundup with the family and doing a bit of celebrating since its Ryan's birthday this weekend!!!!

I'll try to add it to the links list at the bottom of the site sometime today.
And if your mega bored with the winter blues blow thru the sites below bc there are a ton of always updated, always awesome sites down there.
Below is a video of John Barker taking a go at the infamous Austin, Texas Church Gap. Blows his fucking wheel apart and everything but somehow walks away alive and basically unscathed. Mind blowing. If anyone (other than us old fucks) remembers this far back, Jimmy Levan destroyed that shit back on Road Fools 1(damn that makes me feel old as hell since they are on like 17 now!). Anyway its cool to see that somethings never change...I remember when tailwhips by themselves were considered a hard trick, but thank god stupid ass gaps like this are still only reserved for the truely insane:

go ahead and make fun of me.
Winter sucks for me. I'm too poor to buy a helmet, and my poor deluxe has been sitting in the corner of my apartment for the past two months crying quietly.
There's a new indoor skatepark that i need to get my ass too with stoner and yazzie, but haven't managed to as of yet.
instead... i've been spending my sundays playing a sport.
haha. not really.. but its alot of fun. Bike polo.
basically regular polo instead we swap out the horses for fixed gear bikes.
anyway.. i'm gay.
A side note to the family or anyone out there for that matter. Ryan and I chill on the regular but we rarely see any of you other cats these days! Thursday nights have been come a weekly thing with wings at ABG and usually Saturday or Sunday we head to Manheim to shred that mini...so get off your couch and shake off your seasonal depressions and join us! And if you aren't going to Ray's next weekend call Zach at Green Mountain and get on that shit.
Last but not least, Ryan and I are headed to Columbia tonight to this new skatepark called Bricktown. Hoping to discuss the plans for a possible bike room with the owner. There is a second floor to this park that is completely empty and we are hoping we get to help decide or at least have some say in how this empty canvas will be used. So stay tuned to the 717 Blogspot for more on that soon! So please feel free to leave comments and ideas in our Comments. Thanks!

Sweet Lew was sweet enough to make this little mini edit of our weekly trip to SkateIt. Thank god he posted it on Vimeo (he put it on Youtube at first). Talked to him today and we discussed the possibility of doing more and more videos like this since him and I both have cameras, especially when summer time rolls around and trails are poppin off. He's even talking about getting a new computer which would really make things a world easier. I have a batch of footy from this past summer that is I couldn't manage to do shit with cause my laptop has a beat ass integrated video card. Anyway check it out. Yazzie shreds that mini way crazier than this video lets on so hopefully we'll have more clips of that up soon!
