So, I'm back in "God's Country" (Salt Lake City for anyone who is unfamiliar). I was home for quite some time, and I must say, LOVE where you guys are. Maybe my Midwest experience has been a little different than yours, but home is home, and it's the best place on earth.
I came home on December 16th, and got to shred some park jumps for the first time all year actually. It was great. Perfect's, although low on snow, held it together the whole time I was in town, and made for some great days on the hill. It was sick shredding with you little mini nubs and park rats. The park at PNS has per capita the best talent around. The bulk of the kids slay.
Caption: Chuck G is rad.... and real Octabunk grabs are hard.
Towards the end of December the crew loaded up some trucks, and ripped up to Cascade Wisconsin to see Tom and Trav, and to help Goat and Stephen move in. They have a quant little place that smells of rich mahogany and has stacks of leatherbound books for days........... PSYCH..... but it is a cute house that is across the street from a Nursing Home. Cascade is a neat place, and if you get the chance, check it out, and DEFINITELY go for PFC North. Shit's rill. There was a rail jam with one of the sickest rail set ups I've ever hit, muchless in a contest. It went really smoothly, and all the people there threw down. The girlies (Steph/Becca) in the crew slayed with some switch ups and spins on to the gap boxes, and Tom and A-Hall spun onto the railish thing with a huge gap on.
New Years happened, and we hardly noticed. I just rolled around in an office chair the whole time saying "It's a celebration bitches"
This past weekend (Jan. 12th os something) Dan Stelle came to the SLC and went with us on an intense Urban rail mission to Ogden. It's only like 45 minutes north of here. IT was a bluebird 7 degree day and we got some great shots. Those attending were Timzilla, Tom (Pretzel Man), Slay J, Dave Euler, Trevor woods taking pics, Dan taking pics, and Napier on the VX 2100 (good footy). Check this link for the slide show. http://4bi9media.com/view_gallery.php?id=14
Caption: Blake is fun.
Caption: Thanks for the sick/super fun set up Cascade, Tom, Trav, whoever, # 99, # 13, etc. etc. Stupid code numbers.
Caption: I like Trav, so I showed him.
Caption: OMG!!! I won free admission to PFC!!!! LolZers!!! Hopefully I can make it.
Lately it's just been freezing cold, but bluebird.. That means PC park days to get ready for the Aspen Open..... We've been ripping up there getting some fun shots..... Doubles like whoa. Maybe a new edit soon, maybe not. Today we made a new game..... It's called Poke'nub...... It's like Poke'mon in a sense. Rather than catching little squirttles and charizards you take a little nub under your wing, and whoever make there little astro nub skier mini grom kid the best at by the end of the year wins.... Should be hilarious, and prolly won't happen....
Come out here and shred.... it'll be sick.
Yeah..... We'll see ya,

This is quite a bit after the fact but to summarize... everybody came up and crashed at tommy, stephen, myself (and now goat)'s new home in Portage Wisconsin. (everybody = alex perfect, becca sedler, stephanie osborn, nate giska, jeffy mcdaniels, blake backman, andy "slay" hall, dan "scam thirty" stelle, and nikki wagner) First off all the kids went skiing while we all worked.. i think they had an ok time despite tall tees, assorted hoodlumry, and tall hat steeze for days.. We then got off work to run the Richie Fahey Open which of course richie won by a landslide despite tommy givin her to the max.. the setup was a flat mild decending rail with a gap takeoff, and both sides with different lipslide setup... and a flat box to gap to down box.. richie won overall impression with a clean switch 270on inward 270 out, 270 on 270 off.. and i think he did some sort of switch on switch up, inward 270out. Tommy was nipping at his baggy ass heels with huge 270s on, and trying 450s on and dying. other honorable mentions include stephy gettin blindside switchups and trying 270 onto the boxes.. becca tried some 270 on and didnt fall a couple times.. slay hall killed in on both rail setups... we have some footy thanks to alpal and i think daniel has some killer pictures... unfortunately goat didnt get to compete because the day before he dove down the box and crushed his collarbone.. (by the way he is a trooper.. he is making snow and working minus one collarbone...) we then watched the fireworks... which were awesome (High Five Cascade and Pepsi) Then we packed up and headed to our new home... which is awesome (High Five Chip.. and everyone that has gifted us .. chip.. rob.. becca.. tim. tad and alix.. dave..etc) we started into champagne party... then all the internationals that work for cascade showed up in one taxi and the party got going... pbcup got scammed on pretty hard.. blake had some rough times... stephen and i got pissed... gross, and the internationals hate becca.. schmies from K2 is a good time, tried to scam and slept in a car in the street.. the kids cleaned our home the next day while we went to work with no sleep and i actually got to head home early and take me a nappy nap.
morals of the story... i love my friends, our new house is rad, please come visit us, thanks chip, internationals love to party late, dont ever get peed on in your own house, dont ever invite turbo anywhere, and nate passes out real early. tall tees are stupid, and slay hall is going to kill it this year..
i dont have my computer with pictures so hopefully i will edit this by the end of the weekend and add a bunch of pictures for your viewing pleasure
