Oh wow… I have a blog?

I guess so. It’s been over a year since I posted here last. There’s really no excuses for not posting here. Aside from the fact that the “microblogging” thing is pretty much taken care of with the combination of my Facebook Page and my Twitter account. Regardless, I have actually been busy with a number of things. Put on a few FlagSprints

FlagSprints 09 WInter Finals

I did record a few songs with Feel Free some of which made it’s way onto a 7″ with Treasure Mammal.

I put on a ‘few’ miles on the bike… I’ve mapped some of these rides on my cell phone using My Tracks. A neat app to say the least… my google maps repository)

I also helped put on a Flagstaff Tweed Ride, check out the video:

Well, those are the ‘well recorded’ things I’ve taken part of over the past year or so now…

So what’s coming up for boring ol me?

Headed on vacation to the DR with family and friends in a few weeks. It’ll be the first vacation that I’ll have taken in over a year… that is if you count SSWC’s last year in Durango. But that was brutal biking, but also brutal fun.

While we’re talkin’ bikes, I am also gonna get my ass in gear for this year’s longer mountain bike rides. I plan on doing an awesome local long distance mountain bike race called the Crazy88. While it’s technically a race, I’m just gonna treat it like a long day of riding and hopefully finish before any cutoff times… or before everyone goes home for the night.

Only time will tell if my blog will return to it’s previously very inactive state, or whether I’ll get hoppin on it.

Mustache March FlagSprints a success!

Well, that’s a picture of me trying to sprint with 2 pbr tallboys in my belly. Over the weekend we threw our first “goldsprint” style competition. In this first round, I was barely edged out by spandex man in the middle, but qualified for the 2nd round and made it to the 3rd round, all while running around like a chicken with my head cut off making sure everything went smoothly. It was pretty fun all around, over 30 people raced and about 80-100 people showed up to cheer on. We used the opensprints.org for our software and hardware setups. Bikes were self bought & sponsored by Absolute Bikes. We’ll get all the rough edges worked out for the next race, and start throwing these more often. Fun times indeed.

Understanding in the new year

The end of this past year was to be as per usual, but ended up being something completely different. Instead of staying in town and celebrating a glowing pinecone, or seeing everyone that left town come back for the holiday, I ended up going on a roadtrip with an old friend that I hadn’t seen or heard from in years. The general gist of the trip was to do whatever, in search of something different for the new year. We ended up heading towards New Orleans as part of the original plan. Case Miller and crazy bike adventures awaited. Both did not fail to deliver a wonderful time, as neither did the trip itself, nor the renewed amity. Here’s a lil video of the bike craziness:

New Orleans was much different than expected, a place with innumerable examples of dark and light. We were in & around the Bywater, between the French Quarter and 9th Ward. Things like the houses and people were amazing, but there were plenty of hints at the not so fun… like bulletin boards covered with rewards for information on murders and crimestopper fliers. It was really good to see how Case was doing down there. Oh, and the food… the southern food!

Overall, I have a renown interest in getting out and adventuring more. I have a warm place in my heart for enjoying time with others once again. I’ll definitely be making my way out around the world more this year.

bad stuff good stuff

I’m not gonna talk about the bad stuff. It still hurts.

Good stuff:
Got the alien frame in:

Ran into an old friend the other day. Brock will powdercoat it for some beerz, but is out on the river till the 8th. So I dunno when it’ll happen. Whenever it does get painted though, is when the Bridgestone goes on the market for like $500 with the pink chris king headset.

I also picked up a road bike:

Very chill indeed!

Also, rocked the risers…

Also, got the kicks J-momo rocked me:

they are very chill!

That is all for now…
