Bloomington trip

I hadn't paid a visit to Bloomington in quite some time.  Ryan said he was working on the ramp and I really wanted to put a little bit of time in.  We headed down and had a fun session at the outdoor park in the end of January?! I don't know what is going on but I like it.  Ryan and the Bloomington crew come through winter after winter.  I wish I could be a bigger part of it.  I love going down there it is nothing but positivity.
Got mom's van.  Filled it up with the boys and George Jones and headed south.

Put them boys to work.

The bossman

George helped or at least hung out.

Almost done! well one half anyways.

I can't believe this is still up in Rockits.  This is the OLD rise sticker.

Firewood with Diesel.

Recently I added a wood burning stove to my garage.  Now I need firewood.  My dad gets firewood from his country club so we took my truck down there to pick up some wood.  There was a huge surplus and we filled my truck twice with wood.

FLIFF FLIFF I just aint to be flexed with

Lee Bender introduced me to this.  This has literally been the inspiration of the entire trip.

Last night, she said, I said, huh, I don't know

Didn't think we could stay out later than we did the other nights.  These folks here now how to party.  My phone doesn't know how to update stuff so my all terrain blogging vehicle is down for a little bit.  Hopefully it will come back together.  This trip has been awesome.  I can't believe it is my last day.  I am coming back.

So I haven't been writing very much because I hate typing on my phone.  Not that anyone cares because I know I look at blogs to look at photos and that is it.  I LOVE Indiana I love my friends and I have no regrets for being there for the majority of the last 15 years.  However, being a skateboarder for life and wanted to skate in new stuff it is hard being there.  The last three days as minimal as it may seem have been eye opening to me.  I have spent the majority of my days figuring out how I could get my ass out here permanently.  I have a teaching degree so I could easily teach all winter and then leave for the hot summers.  I miss traveling, I want to feel comfortable on the road again.  I don't want to forget how I am feeling right now or ANY of the experiences I have had.  You life can seem down or take turns for reasons that are impossible to understand.  These are the events that turn us into the people we are today.  Everything influences you in some sort of way.  I am very grateful for the friends, family, and others that have been or still are close to me.  I have my life to live but I couldn't do it without the others in it. It might be from lack of sleep but I really want to be out here.
This guy.  So psyched on everything.

Do it braaaaaayayyyyyddddd.

Oh man

"don't ever talk back naked"

Memories and the hood

In 2008 we skated this pool everyday for a few weeks. We had some awesome sessions. Now it is totally full of water.

This house was crazy. I don't really have any room to complain since this house was gnarly. Unless the house next door had a ramp....

"I knew there was someone skating that f-----g pool!"

This pool was amazing. So good. Tricks were done. Neighbors were nice. Brad ate the shallow end with his truck. 2 man session.

Used some DIY skills to make a drain cover. I touched the towel afterwards and smelled my finger. It almost made me puke.


Vacations can be tough. House party with the homies. Good group of nice people out here. Venezias makes awesome pizza. Someone told me this table had legs made out of elephant feet. I kind of believe her.

Brett and brad are good ping pong players. I am already buying a ticket for spring break. I love it out here.


Here is the best me and brad could estimate. We will take a survey as to what this number represents.

Pool day!!!

Two pools skated but lots seen. Bite me subs. Everybody has frontside grinded every pool. Brad grinded light death and the contractors working on the house approved.

Pool 1

Surprising enough we all made it out of the house by 1000. We headed straight to einsteins then swimming in the pool.

My back is already done but everyone frontside grinded! We had a lot of bucketing to do but it all paid off when we got to ride it.

Night 1

If I said I was disappointed in my first night in az that would be a total lie. Started with a fire at the local watering hole. We were evacuated and then let back in. Followed by a trip to a local hangout that I guess is a hangout spot for a few paranormal entities.


Does bill burr come to Tempe the night before I get here!!!!
