    Aspen or Bust Part Duex revisited!

    Aspen, Aspen, Aspen,Aspen, Aspen, Aspen, Aspen, Aspen, Aspen, Aspen!
    It's off to the land of the beautiful people and perfect snow. People coming in from all parts of the globe today for yet another episode of the SES! Snow conditoins are excellent and some more accumulation is on its way. More snow always makes everything better. Looking forward to seeing all of my old friends and meeting all of the new SES'ers (of which there are quite a few). What better way is there but to spend a week with all of you in Aspen!

    Think Snow!

    Checking in from the bomber house..

    The carpool rolled in with Ct, Ohio, N Carolina and Wisconson around 3pm.

    On the eve of the SES and all through the house, the drinks are flowing, the candy dish is out and the carvers are picking up their tickets. Old friends, new friends are all converging in Aspen tonight as the snow starts to pile up outside.
    Wish you were here!
    The journey is the destination.

    Aspen, baby!!!

    1) Woohooo! The odometer says I'm here!
    2) This is Jax, my roommate for the week. Looks like we'll be getting along great!

    p.s. I did check the engine - it's still there & I'm here. That works for me!

    Bomber House

    Paulk was telling the truth - the jelly bellies were flowing last night, and everyone was feeling the stoke! There were tons of people there - an aspect to this event that two_ravens is finding a bit confusing, having just come fromSkES...

    All the boys were gaga over this thing - and I have no idea, so please ask someone else. I just know that fat boards with no camber really don't interest me....

    So near...

    San Fransisco's a nice enough place, but not so much so when my plane to SES is delayed an hour.
    Looking forward to meeting many of you.

    Bomber House

    Only days after debuting its technology at the SkES, an early prototype of next year's Pi 'R Squared plate (aka the "broiler Plate") turns up at the Bomber house. Industrial espionage? Rumor has it that the plate went missing outside a Qdoba restaurant in Grand Junction, Colorado, along with several of this year's Pi Plate...

    Day 2 - Snowmass!

    Question of the day: Why do all the hot chicks hang out with the gay guys? (Not that there's anything wrong with that! )

    A few inches of snow overnight. Today we had all the weather - some clouds. some sun, some wind & snow. The chop became a bit challenging and I was chilled all day - that last bit of storm that blew in at 2 pm finished me off. But still a super fun day riding with the Montucky boys, and did a few runs with Angie, Michelle & a pack of others.

    Not only was there all kinds of weather out there but there was a short halfpipe clinic. Yeah, no kidding! The best tip I heard...run up the wall at about 80 degrees. Awesome!

    I put together a bit of footage from the boom mounted gopro from day one. The conditions have been pretty rough, so it's tough to find footage that stable enough, but here's a bit. If we get good groom, I'll shoot some more. Maybe first tracks tomorrow.
