Was a semi productive day. I had weak leg syndrome, so skating felt kinda wierd, so instead, I did some research for, and did some spot scouting at UNR (University of Nevada Reno), and let me tell you, there is some pretty good potential at that school for skating. A lot of the ledges are capped, but it's all good cause there is still some gem of ledges and rails, and a pretty little 14 that I would like to play around on.

After that, me and Trevdog had some garlic chips at Pub n' Sub, and played a game of pool in wich he beat the living crap out of me. It was still a good time though.

Now Sarah is back from work, and she turns 21 at midnight, so there is plans of a two day party binge, to celebrate such a celebratory event. After that, no more drinking, just working and skating. That's all I really need anyways.

Well, I think the plan is to go to the river and check out art town, and then stroll down to some penny beer night spot, and then probibly forget what is going to happen after that.

What's good?

Ever sprained your middle finger floating down a river, then had the ability to flip off all of your friends in a attempt to show them how swollen one of them was?

Have you ever done a switch flip 5-0 on a box with a old school board with cruiser wheels and 215's just to be asked if you smoke crack?

Have you ever skinny dipped down the rapids of a river at 2 in the morning after skating for 5 hours?

Ever camped on the side of the road the day before the 4th of july, then woke up at 8in the morning to go to the beach to and start drinking (at 8 in the morning)?

Ever had a gun pulled on you by a dude that told you he loved you an hour later?

Ever had a cop tell you to "get your head out of your ass"?

How about fitting 4 people in a two person tent?

Ever had some dude put his foot in front of your wheels after you landed, ate shit, and then had your homie palm check him in the face, and watch him fall over backwards and spill his beer all over himself all while you were still on the ground.

I have................ and I am loving every minute of it.

It's been a hot minute 'yall

Since we have last spoken, well what's happened since then, well the 4th was a bittersweet day beginning by being the best 4th ever and ending up kinda sucking at the end.

The day started with us waking up at 8:30 in the morning at zephyr's cove on south lake tahoe, and drinking and partying on the most crowded beach I have ever been on my life (this coming from someone who grew up in Santa Cruz). We were surrounded by beautiful women, and good friends. Truly bliss.

Around 5:30 the nice assholes that work at Zephyr kicked everyone out, and we headed to the Casino's on South Lake where I was tricked into heading back to Reno where no one was doing anything.

We went and watched quite possibly the worst fireworks display I have ever had the luck (bad) to lay eyes on. After that we headed back to my homie's house where we heard there was a party. I got my hopes way up and when we got there there was like 15 dudes and like 4 girls. Where did all the girls go you ask? Well, they were all in South lake, where the ratio was probably like 3 to 1, leaving for one messed up ratio in Reno.

We ended the night with a 2 mile drunken stumble back to home base and passed out on the couch.

The next day, we were all so tore back, that we just sat around and watched a variety of films in a very dark advil filled room. So there isn't much to discuss on that day.

The next day was filled with skating and river adventuring. First we headed to Fared, which is a dope ass spot on the river with a plethora of bridges and cliffs to huck your carcass off of.

After a brief jaunt down the river, we headed to the skatepark in the beautiful city of Truckee, and pushed around and did some serious bowl pumping brah. beers, bowls and barneys fool!

Then we ended the day with another Fared mish, which was awe fully refreshing after skating in triple digit, smoke filled weather.

Other than that, just skating and trying to get some footy for the blog and some other various video productions.

The last few weeks have been awesome, just living life to the fullest, and loving every minute of it.

Another day, Another mission

So, I am waking up, with a nice cup of coffee in hand, waiting for Scott (Swilly) to get up so we can do work on the streets today. He just got into town last night, so I don't blame him for catching some z's for a hot minute.

I think the plan for today is to go to rattlesnake, then head over to this rail that I have a bone to pick with. Then go wherever the wind blows from there.

Tonight is 50 cent beer night, so we might have to call it a day around 8 to go cop some cheap brew.

Also art town is going off again tonight, last night we enjoyed some jazz with a bunch of very old people, but it was still a good time.

There is also talks of heading up to lake tahoe for the night so we don't get all caught up in traffic tomorrow morning.

Life is full of decisions, and the ones that we make dictate who we are.........

Art Town in Reno

Yep, that's right, every day for the whole month of July there is a band and other random things of artistic and aesthetic value. So that, means that this months skating travels will be intertwined with some semi reporting of the Art Town festivities.

Let's see, last night there was some crazy ass dudes dancing on stilts while this like 10 member band got down on various wind and percussion instruments. The part that i thought was the sickest though, was that there was this girl who danced while floating like 10 to 15 feet off the ground via a hot air balloon and two guys who were strapped down to it guiding her through the crowd. I wish I brought my camera so i could post some pictures of it, but I forgot to charge the battery. But I am charging it right now, so be ready for some dope ass pics posted with the next few days blogs.

Other than that, just been skating through downtown, cruising on Sarah's cruiser, and trying to skate street. Going to the parks, and still doing whatever I can do to help promote Just living the golden life.

Til' then yall' have fun ya hear. That's what life is all about.
