DAWN PATROL

Russ and I ended the season hiking in the mountains and started the season hiking in the mountains. Dawn patrol at Teton Pass is where we were this morning and it was awesome. We were the first people up there and Russ was all types of amped up. A cold start with the usual shit going down... wrestling my back pack, fiddling with my pole, while Russ has been up since 4am all types of amped up as usual but that is way the it should be. We were hiking for powder turns and that is what we got! I have not been up there in a while and I had forgotten how amazing it is up there. Crisp cool air, sun shining and fresh powder. The turns were great for the most part with marginal amounts of rocks(my board is feeling it). Good times today... Winter is finally here. I hope it sticks around for a little bit.

SLAVE AWAY...KEEP WORKIN' IT!



I came across this coupon the other day and thought I should share it with you. I don' t think this would work where I live which is something like the 2nd richest county in America. This could probably work somewhere in the Midwest or possibly somewhere in the South... anyway you look at it, dreams are made of money nowadays and only we can make these dreams happen by pretending we have money or credit...


This track has nothing to do with this post but this brings me back to 1984 when things were good... not that they are not good now, but you know what I mean.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT...

Sometimes we have to forget about the Internet and get down with some Kerouac... it's good for your head if you can keep up.




Hey!!!... If you are reading this part and you have some music you think we should hear and might want us to post it here... Look to the right and check out the new Soundcloud Drop Box. Living in Wyoming, we get overlooked as far as music is concerned, but you be surprised...! Thanks.

CHANGE HAS COME


Well here we are... man this is finally happening and it does feel good to know that we are in good hands, but it will take more than Obama to make this "Change" happen. We need to step up and support that Change like he said in his speech last night. We did win as Americans and now the real work begins. Let's make it happen! Wow... that sounds pretty positive huh? Word... check this track out from the Screaming Trees from 1988 when another change was happening in music... remember that?

WE NEED BARACK OBAMA!!!


All my life I have never really been into politics and I can say I am not into them still. Over the years especially in the last four years since Bush got re-elected President did I actually care about our situation in America and this silly War thing! I am not educated to talk my smack about the war nor about our economic situation other than we all seem to be in some trouble with the state we are in. I think greed has finally caught up to us and now we are all paying the price except for maybe Bush and Cheney... I'm sure they will get their share of helplessness. Anyway I am going to vote again for the second time in my life. For me that is a huge step. It is about time I care about what is happening now and what will happen in the future. With that said, check out this track from DJ Green Lantern... tight shit!

ART AND MUSIC... WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR?

NEW ONE

OLD ONE


I have traveled around the world and seen many things... uuhh what? No... scratch that! I have been living in Jackson Hole, Wyoming for just about 18 years. My inspiration to create art has been missing since then. Don't get me wrong... there is quite a bit of inspiring subjects here like the mountains, rivers, snowboarding, fishing, dirtbiking and any other outdoor activity you can think of. The art scene is ok and has plenty to offer but there is always something missing like... diversity. I do not want to open up a can of worms here so I won't. I have recently been inspired to create art again, particularly paint. It is tough for me to do this considering my life in he fast lane... he he he! Really, I'm stoked about the resurgence. These are just a couple of pieces that I am happy with new and old and the tracks that I am posting are just a bonus for my inspiration...enjoy!

By the way... these pieces are for sale...email me for more info.

OH YES IT'S LADIES NIGHT!!!

It has been a great turn out on Thursday Nights at the TST. This place can hold quite a few people, so even when there is 200-250 people in there, it still seems like it's not packed. Thanks to all the ladies that come out in there Summer dresses and also thanks to the dude's for behaving themselves. This night is really for for us because we play two types of music... Country and Western! Naw... we get to play almost whatever we want and what the crowd grooves on. Thanks for the support and we will see you out!
