I really like this spot

I'm not particularly into graffiti, but there was some good looking stuff around. I'm really into this are though. With any luck I'll be visiting a lot. I really missed my 30D today while I was there.
And for anyone paying attention, that is a Pista Concept laying there.

Mark started riding with us.

Trey got a new rat. Her name is Falcon Tits.

We didn't know it, but she came with nine friends inside.

I went to the Girl/Anti-Hero demo at Department of Skateboarding on Tuesday.
Mike Carroll slipped out on the seven stair and I got it all on video.

Reporting From Bend

I definitely just got hit by a car for the first time.

I was cruising in the bike lane alongside a car going over 20mph when she, talking on her cell phone, decides to turn right without signaling. My left pedal arced along her passenger side door and my foot caught her wheel-well which sent me tumbling over her hood. I ended up on my back holding my bike in the air. Luckily my bike and I sustained minimal injuries. The bar tape got torn up and the bars themselves got a few deep scratches, otherwise not much damage. My right shoulder blade is scraped up but otherwise I feel great.

The best part was when I was on my way home about 2 minutes after the accident... I was going down a steep but short hill and as I was about halfway down, attempted to skid only to find out that the strap of my left pedal (which is in the rear for me when skidding) had been shredded during my previous wreck. My left foot immediately jumped out of the cage and nearly sent me into a nosedive. Scary shit.

Anyway, in other news... I've finally got a decent group of kids to ride with. For those of you that know them, they include Kellen, Cody, Shane, Jacob, Eric, Jeremy, Cameron and possibly a few other people that I've met recently. The only thing is that 5 out of those 7 people ride brand new fixies. Just makes me feel a little silly.

So that's what's up down south. I'm gonna eat some dinner now.

Oh yeah and vote for Barack Obama by May 20th!
I miss taking photographs.
I mean really taking photo's.
Money from the 30D is certainly going to the slow savings for a 1D.
Wish me luck.
