  1. Nice! I would love to ride out there, but I can't commit quite yet. Let's see how things are looking in January.

    Powabunga - Thirst PC

    Not yet...but I can't deny the thought has crossed my mind
  3. The looping, I get, though the approach to this one seems tricky. It's the prospect of what you could do off the top of it, and those tempting/scary rails that piqued my interest. Speaking of skate tricks on a loop, did you guys see this?
  4. Great - happy birthday to Becki! I'll shoot you the code via pm.
  5. Anyone need some Columbia, Mt. Hardwear, Prana or Sorel stuff? I have a few passes to the employee store that expire on August 7. The passes also have discount codes for the websites: columbia.com, mountainhardwear.com, prana.com and Sorel.com that give about a 45% discount from MSRP. I think the discount codes also need to be used by August 7. I have 3 to get rid of, will give them (or send the codes if you just want to hit the websites) to the first three posters.

    Info

    Hey, I have a couple of buddies from Oregon that are interested - one's a skier and one's a soft booter. I assume that would be totally cool, but just want to check - any issues there?

    Best jacket

    My last two jackets have both been Orage Alaskan jackets - I bought a new one after my old one gave up the ghost. There have been both insulated and shell versions in the past, I've used the insulated one. Very warm (my current one uses Primaloft Gold, which I've found is noticeably warmer than vanilla Primaloft even with less volume of insulation), fully-featured, and I got my last one at Evo.com in late spring / early summer for something like $100 (MSRP is $400).
  8. Awesome! Your video is cool too
  9. Someone posted this on Reddit - I'm not usually into hip hop, but I really like this sound and the fusion with Native American music. Cool video too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAEmjW9J3_o
  10. A wrist would be getting off easy! My wife said "they couldn't build this in Portland because we have too many lawyers there".
  11. I was on vacation on the southern Oregon coast last week, and while eating pie in Reedsport saw a skate park across the street. I wandered over to take a look and found this tiny coastal town has what may be the gnarliest feature I've seen in a skate park. I guess those rails are to keep you from going over the edge, not for grinding on...right? Sadly, the only person riding when I was there was on a Razor scooter and didn't hit this feature.
  12. I got no artwork, but I have thought that a drawing of a bulldozer or excavator digging an s-shaped trench in snow would be pretty cool.
  13. I don't typically follow basketball much, but our hometown heroes the Blazers had a pretty good playoff run this year, so I got kind of engaged, and I have one thing to say: go Raptors! Congrats on your win!
  14. Hey Josh! Fortunately, I think my issue can be corrected with PT and yoga, no surgery required - it's just a badly strained back muscle. I was wondering about carpooling, since there are a couple of carvers in SE Portland, but sounds like you'll be coming from Hood River anyway. It would be great to get folks together sometime this summer for a beer - let's see if we can align schedules once more consistent warm weather is here.
  15. One of the local riders here in Portland, Jburk, told me he's been attaching his stomp pads with industrial strength velcro. That way he can remove the stomp pads for grinding - the velcro patch is thin enough to go through the grinder without creating problems.
