Oakley Backyard Enduro Challenge

Friday Dec 9th I went for pretty long mountain bike ride with some friends.

"As the sun crept up Friday morning, thirty-seven mountain bike junkies gathered in FHR’s front circle to caravan to Maple Springs and begin the group climb up Santiago Peak – the highest point of the Saddleback Mountain range that crests at 5,689 feet above sea level and stares you in the face from Oakley headquarters.

Once everyone convened at the picturesque summit, the horn blew and participants bombed down the gnarly terrain.

All thirty-seven Enduro survivors regrouped at the finish line before riding back to Oakley as a team to enjoy a BBQ and awards ceremony"

Whiskey Exchange

The Estates men and myself hosted our first Whiskey Exchange last Friday night. We are gentlemen and we do gentlemen type stuff. Nothing got out of hand and some fine whiskey was sipped. As the old saying goes, "Whiskey is for drinking. Water is for fighting over."

Mammoth Opening Weekend 2011

Mammoth fired up the lifts and we hit the slopes to kick off the 2011/2012 snowboard season. Yep, it's my favorite season of the year. The Shredding was awesome, and The Black Lips played Saturday night at Canyon Lodge. Quick trip, but full of fun.
Mammoth Mountain's photographer Peter Morning came out with us yesterday to snap some photos. Yeah, Mammoth has full size jumps in the park right now, but why bother? We were sessioning Bob's Nob putting on a Grasser / Method clinic inspired by our previous night's viewing of Road Kill.

Back on the Grid. Sort of.

Last June, I cut the cable, pissed off the wife and started to enjoy my summer.
What led me to that decision? Well, I was fed up with my cable service and box failing, Hockey season was over, and I wanted to spend more time out and about and less time on the couch. That all changed last night...
It was a combination of things, I like to fix things, and I was totally perplexed that the massive antenna on my roof wasn’t picking up signals. I later did some research and realized that broadcasted stations are now 2-1, 5-2, 5-4 etc. So once I did an auto tuning search, I picked up 118 channels. There is some bizarre stuff being broadcasted these days. I felt like I was in Europe. However, the highlight, is that channels are being broadcasted in HD, so for example Gossip Girl comes in 1080p. Solid picture. Seeing that we have been watching DVD’s off my PS2 (480p), Tanya was pretty hyped about the quality of the picture.
End of summer bummer
Fall is here
My neighbor is getting rid of his mini ramp
My TV works, so now my wife can totally tune me out
I guess I better start working on my squats so I’m ready for shredding.
