From Sunday

Took this shot on Sunday. This is the new landing on the 4th BB's. Should feel WAY better. Thing was definitely way to mellow last year.

Pitney Serpents!

Just a quick update.
Finally getting some shaping done. The rain is really helping. It was a slow go. Brett and I added about a foot to the 5th Only landing to get us to max speed for the 6th set. Things are going to be running in no time but it would be a huge help if more people showed up. But what's new?
After throwing plastic on the work we had done today we stumbled across the same snake we had seen before. This time he had a buddy with him. Brett poked at them with a stick like a little kid. We are both big babies when it comes to the snake thing for whatever reason.
Last but not least I got the new stickers in. They turned out sick. Thanks as always to Bear Mountain Stickers. Great work. Most of the family will be getting a packet of about 50 stickers so hit any of us up if your trying to get your hands on some stickers!

Super Dry Surfacing

Well I'm finally getting around to posting some photos updates on the trails. Things are coming along REAL slow. Everything is super dry this year. Just like every other trails blog out there we are in desperate need of rain. The forecast has a few good ones predicted for later this week. Sort of looking forward to those.
Starting to resurface everything...or at least trying to. Got thru the first 3 Only's. Some things are getting built up better and cleaned up where we can find time (and wet dirt).
Got my copies of the new CASE magazine. Couldn't be more stoked on those. Great magazine and thanks to Cottle for the quick delivery! $6 gets you the first two issues...and they only took about 3 days to get. Get em while their hot.

Here are the pics from the last week or so.

This is a shot of the garden that I planted today! Corn, tomatoes, onions, and a few other things. Guess we'll see if anything grows and we'll see if when it does it doesn't disappear from all the animals nibbling.

Territory will be marked haha.

Deluxe Team

I figure I'll post some Deluxe news since most of us ride one these days, and most of us love em. It appears that they've replaced one Mark (Mark Mulville) with another (Mark Potoczny). Stoked that they have another US native on board...and mostly stoked that its a PA native. Go over to for more news and to take a look at the kickass products they have. And get at Fashions non-diggin ass if you're trying to get your hands on some Deluxe goods

BMX movie night last night went off well. Kimmel and Ryan made the voyage. Good times and good videos with good friends is always awesome.
Bring your asses to the trails Sunday...we need people to haul clay so we can start surfacing the top sets! Things have been getting done on a daily basis and should be rockin' before ya know it. So if you give half a shit get to the trails and lend a hand.
Kimmel came thru last night with some shots of the progress at Gtown. The new bulked up berm looks quite lovely.
Got some shots below. The first is a random I took tonight as I was leaving the trails. Thought it came out pretty sweet. The second is the 7th Only, squared and ready to be dialed in! And last but not least is a snap of the Gtown trails. First jam is June 26th so mark your never disappoints.

Trail Video Night!

Having a trails video night at the pad tomorrow night (Thursday). Trying to get everyone else stoked on trails so they actually come dig haha. Just got the new Welcome To Deluxe video that we'll probably check first then I have a slew of other ones to watch including PA Woods 10 Year, PrettyShady 9, and Segment's Trails Is Shouting. Probably order up some wings and pizzas, crack a few beers, and spend some quality time with the crew. What more could you possibly want?! If anyone is down hit me up and if you have other trail vids you wanna bring feel free.

Good Friday

Long weekend is coming to a close. Had a great time Friday with Brett. We headed on a hike up to House Rock and on a random adventure. It was a blast. We followed that up with a trip to York park and then the trails. All in all great day. Shame not much digging got done at the trails this weekend but I'm sure we all had a great time with the families. Back to digging Tuesday night!
