coming soon to a coast around you

Minus the fact that Jersey Drew and the crew will not make it this year it is turning into an awesome trip.  Never have so many Indiana boys made it out to Orcas.  This is going to be awesome.


I thought about organizing all these but then I thought it might take a few days. The home stretch is coming up in school busy as usual but getting it in.  Here are come pictures. Sorry for the out of order pictures... It'll stop.

finally rode to work.  2 years of talking about it and it finally happened.

new dashboard.
The next bunch of pictures are from rockers reunion.  It got a little extreme this year.  Tons of cool bikes.  Thanks to the melody inn for throwing the shindig.

Kept the saturday night/beverage ride alive.  Katy Jeff and I rode 25 miles this weekend.  Went to the IMA then downtown then back to Broadripple.  These trips have been fun get a bike and a backpack!

My 18 year old brother graduated from highschool last weekend.  Parents took the fam to Ruth Chris.  Normally when we get together its a blast.  Nothing short of that this weekend.  Carbar and everything.

tons of stuff.

Summer is only three weeks away! That means start planning.  Gotta go to Orcas.

Cinco De Bartphone

It is really hard to get much more psyched then thinking about heading down to Bloomington to go to Homewoods.  Well what if it was Bart's Birthday.  Bart Smith turned 40 last weekend.  He did his 40 grinds or 41 grinds just for good measure.  For most people concrete bowl is enough to celebrate their birthday.  Bart put in a HUGE ramp into a pond and build a 20 foot tall burning man.  So much fun.  I can't wait to make a video edit... I'll go ahead and tell you there will not be much skate footage.

A while ago I got my first college degree.  For my final project I made a little documentary.  I was lucky enough to get Bart alone out at Homewoods to interview him for the last half of this video.  A little bit about the story.  Not enough though...

The burning man.  That looks like 20 feet right? Radius Ribs.

I am glad I helped Jeff with his tent.  Katy and Jeff brought a small motel with them.

The T100 got used this weekend.  It got named the mud taxi.  I can't complain. This was the worst I have ever seen the trail.  It had rained a whole bunch and as Nate put it the trail was a bit greezy huh?
