Trying to finish a project - stone facing some pillars on our new deck. Since I've never done any kind of masonry work ever its been long & tedious but......maybe today?? Cool thing is all the stone was gathered from an area I regularly ride in winter.

Hey any of the MT ppls going to the "rockin the rivers" concert at 3 forks in Aug? I wanna come down for the Sunday concert.

Glad to hear eveyone is making the most of the summer.

Sweet book Drew. I had to buy a copy for my tele-buddy Franz, who lives in upstate NY. His last name also happens to be Haas. Also had to get one for myself! Though I doubt I'll be out to the "high peaks" :) out there anytime soon...

Eco, you think I would go to Whistler and not post a TR? What's gotten into you?? :) That trip hasn't happened yet. It's coming up in a few weeks. I have been practicing though...

Things have been crazy since Mem Day, otherwise I woulda crammed in a few more trips. I moved to a new place in Aptos, and realized that I have WAAAY too much stuff. This past month has been the month of weddings. Seems all my friends are getting married. Here's Franz's wedding, with yours truly as the officiant:

Image
Betcha didn't know I'm an ordained priest... in the Church of the Seven Day Adventurists!!! :)

Then my buddy from the music world Darryl (in the bitchin' orange shirt) got married, and there was much music making at the reception. I've got that "who farted?" look going on... also known as "jazz face".

Image

But the real news is that I've been working on a top-secret new product with p420. I'll probably get in trouble for leaking (so to speak) info about it, but what the hell. Forget releasable bindings, we've got the product that EVERY backcountry traveller needs. That's right...

Shart Shorts (tm)!

Here's a product tester (name witheld) after completing a successful mountain bike trial of the product. And yes, it successfully retained "product" as well...

Image

More details forthcoming at the appropriate time. We will be accepting pre-orders.

Smooth drop JimW! Your bike sucked that up like nothing.
The woods look sick where ever that is. 8)

That's Santa Cruz, man. Sweet redwood forests. Lots and lots of s/t with many jumps and drops...lots that are too huge for me. We'll ride there sometime.

mtnrider, you and Eco need to make a trip out here to the backyard. Some amazing trails back in there. Eco probably knows more of them than I do! And lots of fun stunts to hit of all shapes and sizes. We measured that drop around 14-15 feet, but it's super smooth. Just a mind trip. The Demo 9 just sucks that stuff up though! :) Here's a couple crappy stills from some digital camera video, tackling my latest nemesis, the big double on the local jump trail.

Note the conspicuous absence of a landing photo...

You guys going to the Downieville race? Should be fun.

Oh, I almost forgot. Lest the backcountry babes among us should feel neglected, fear not! We have you covered (so to speak) as well! We've been simultaneously developing a female-specific version of the product:

Shart Shorts For Her(tm)!

Here's "Brenda" (name changed to protect the not-so-innocent) testing them out on a recent mountain bike ride. I think she likes them! :)

Image

That is all that I can disclose about the product at this time. Contact me off-list if you're interested in becoming a beta tester.

Yep, jumping is the easy part...if it weren't for those pesky landings. I had a foot slip last weekend and raked my balls on my top tube. :shock: :shock: :x :oops: :(

Nope, we'll be up there Aug. 2-5 or something like that. Four days of riding, swiming, relaxing and all that other good shit. I just hope it freakin cools down. Your more than welcome to come join for a day or all four.

Love the product Jim. Wish I could have had a set up at Shasta last weekend. Maybe we should work on a pair with an enlarged"pouch" for longer trail days. Wow, that freaking wedding looks cool. But, being in upstate New York thats probablly the normal attire.

HEY NOW! Let's watch the upstate NY slams. I'm from Massena, the REAL upstate NY. Actually, you know where Affix proposed? That is where I went snowboarding for the first time. I think they call it southern canada if you're from the NYC. I've never seen anyone dress like a pirate before.
Now if you really want to know, pull some clothes out from 8-10 years ago and that is the current trend. :lol:


If I can pull it off, I might try to make an extra trip up that way Jim.
Can't wait to hit up Downieville...YEEHAW CLEATUS LAVARNWAY rides again.

You guys do some cool stuff in the summer.

I plan on cleaning out the garage, organizing my closet with a new closet organizer and re-arranging my kitchen utensil drawer.

I wanna make a tool wall in my garage with pegboard and outline all the tool shapes with a black pen so I know just where to hang the tools.
