gregs bowl.

My friend Greg is definitely keeping the DIY spirit alive.  In a barn out in the heartland of america he is building quite the masterpiece.  Four corners, two hips, roll in, wall ride, and a fun looking miniramp.  All heated by a huge wood burning stove.  The wood has a built in storage rack under teh deck.  Greg is a lineman and works hard for his living it is awesome to see someone keeping the dream alive.  He works all week, sometimes during the weekend, takes care of his son Tucker, and still finds time to work on the bowl.  He is doing it right and doing it well.  Greg asked me to draw him up some plans because he said he had no idea what he was doing.  Now, I am learning from him.  Sometimes I think I take skateboarding for granted, I learn to settle and skate what we already have. Greg gets me psyched to build and push for new stuff every time he calls me about his bowl.  I could be doing so much more.  Everyone could and we would have more stuff to skate.  Good job Greg and thank you.   Lets finish the bowl and build the vert ramp!

I've been talking about moving for years.  I love Indiana and my close friends but I feel it is time to move on.  I travel so much from my home now, I realized that I leave my home a lot to do the things that I love.  Maybe it is time for me to try somewhere new.  I am not saying that it will be permanent but you never know until you try.  This coming summer I think I am going to try my best to pull the trigger.  North Carolina has always interested me since the first time I went there.  I love the ocean so I convinced Katy, Jeff, and Masaru, and Jackson to drive down there with George and I.  We left Thursday night and drove to Asheville, then we went to Wilmington but ended up in Carolina Beach.  After that I took my friend Jersey Drew's advice and tried out Charleston.  Now I used to take tons of pictures and videos everywhere I went.  I started to realize that I miss out on skating and good times being behind the lens.  It is nice to have the memories but I think its better to just sit back and enjoy them.  The reason I say this is after the ferry ride I took a nap, woke up in Charleston and I didn't take the camera out again.  The hospitality and friends in Charleston really made the trip.  I am looking forward to heading back down there in March.

we got to a campsite too late.  Way out of the way.  I have driven way out of the way and ended up somewhere cool. This wasn't really the case.  It was a nice river but not really "out there"

did some sight seeing.

ferries are awesome

 These vultures were flying behind the boat.  Jeff was feeding them saltines.

Finally I sat down and edited something.  This is mostly our trip to Orcas but there is some other stuff too.  I hope you enjoy. Music by Skyhunter, Johnny Cash, and Sleep.
