Screwed

I bought this from Costco and opened it up. Notice how the box is stainless but the product is black. Costco does not sell black ones. Upon further inspection, it was obvious that it had been used. It doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out what happened. Somebody decided to stick it to Costco. They bought a new coffee pot from Costco. Then they went home and stuffed their used, but similar one in the packaging and returned it to Costco. I then bought it and got screwed.

Burton Chill program gives underpriveledged youth the opportunity to snowboard. The Chill program was very honored to have me donate my time to this worthy cause. These were the lucky 3 who rode with me.

Snowboarder Profie: Scott Peters

pic stolen without permission










Scott is one of the guys i ride with. Scott has been riding for a while and is now a 9-5er, so i dont get to ride with him as much as id like to. He is the closest I have come to "mind melding" when it comes to snowboarding. We always have similar ideas on where to go, and when we do ride, I usually know exacly where he is going. I can ride 3 feet off him with no worries. He has got one of the styliest 360 butters and a great pipe air to fakie i have seen. If i know somebody, it usually can be traced back to Scott. plz note the helmet symbol.

This vid starts from a full stop. Emma pulls with about about 5lbs of force and goes about 15 mph on flats for about a mile. I got her a real sled dog harness. Good dog.

Salt Lake City Man Singlehandedly Stimulates the Economy


In an effort to put the US economy back on track, local citizen Chester Frantz goes on a shopping spree. Seen in above photo, are all the things he bought. "It was nothing your average economic super hero wouldn't do" explained Chester. Upon seeing the credit card bill, Shannon, Chester's wife of 3 years, showed "limited enthusiasm" for his efforts.

New Helmet or new Bindings?

My helmet is from 2000. The custom paint is wearing thin. the new ones have headphones built into em and more vents.
Ended up getting New bindings. I would never give in to the dark side of the force.




Shower drains and remodeling pains

When you recall your tile contractor asking about where a screw is, it doesn't take Sherlock Holmes to figure out what happened.

Speed kills, Local Jib hit gets My Number and puts it on speed dial

Too fast, rentry was described as "entertaining"

pic below ended up going too far laterally, ran out of wall

Sometimes you think you got something down pat, slowly building it up. Speed dialed in, come back next day and then the things you had dialed in are dialing you instead. On Sunday it was wall hit 2 chet 0, Next time wall hit, next time... (no snowboarders were harmed creating this post)

If cameras could talk

Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated

New jacket or new board?

My jacket has seen better days. the zipper tab has been super glued and eventually replaced with a key ring. The membrane on the inside of the jacket is fading. the nylon shell is getting thin and is cut in places. My board is in pretty good shape and I have about 4 of them.

does a stich not in time still save nine?

No. Ya gotta stich it on time. I learned this Wedsday when i noticed my pocket zipper had become unstiched. What was in the pocket? a digital camera. was it still there? no. very sad day. blogs may slow down till i find a new camera.

If paper airplanes could talk

Pretty epic day at the Atlanta marquis hotel


Elevator made short work of the trip up. 41 floors is as high as I could get

Looking down. Winds were dead calm. Flight took me 1:30 seconds did 30 turns! Made it all the way to the bottom. Another great day at the hotel.

What is my favorite bicycle lube?

You can fix a squeaky hinge or persuade a reluctant turd. It is the only bicycle product your health insurance may cover.
