Merry Christmas FOOL

This past week has been a real rough roller coaster ride. I lost the best friend I could and will ever have had, I flew down to LA for an early Christmas with the family. I ended up losing over $500.00 in a combination of unfortunate events. I then got sick for an entire day and did not get to spend too much time with my friends or family.

I then flew back to Truckee on Christmas Eve and got back really early, then went over to Keith and Fancy's house for my Christmas eve dinner and had the best night I could have ever had! I was am so grateful for my friends and family to be there when I really need them, and I will never stop being thankful to those of you who helped me.

I then worked all day on Christmas day and went over to Keith and Fancy's house once again for Christmas dinner and had another delightful time. Then since they fell asleep by 9 PM, I decided I would swing by Johnny's house for his ugly sweater party, and had yet another great time! Here are some pictures of me being sober and silly.

Happy Holiday's

I am in LA, my home city for a few days right before Christmas, and holy shit I forgot about this city. Minus my Family and few people that I consider "Actual" friends in this environment I absolutely despise this place. Do not get me wrong, I LOVE seeing my family, my three dogs, and a few of my friends that actually are my friends, but this place is depressing. I know remember why I got the fuck out of this place, and why I will never come back longer than a week.

On the bright side... Merry Christmas to my friends and family down here!

To all my friends and family that mean the world to me. This Christmas I will not be able to get anyone gifts for this holiday. With this economy, a few bad investments, and a horrible bank system, I am dead out of money. I am relying on close friends and and family members to help me get through this tough time I am currently in. Since I am not able to devote any money towards the people that mean so much, I have decided that for this holiday I am going to make somthing special for each one of you, all I ask is that you can send me 25 cents or so, so I can post your own personal letter or drawing in the mail. If you are in Truckee I will be glad to give you yours on Christmas. If you live in Torrance please give me a stamp and your address.

Again have a very very MERRY CHRISTMAS, I love and Miss you all!

Keith made a Boreal Edit

Boreal With Aussies

Some mutual friends that Kari and I met in Greece decided to come visit us in Truckee. With them being natural surfers, we decided to take them snowboarding. The only resort that was open was Boreal. By the end of their first day they were carving and bombing from the top of the hill!

Food For Thought!


A Pooper Scooper, one of the more sanitary inventions by modern man. Well imagine if it was never invented? Sure we could just use plastic bags to pick up Dog shit, But what is the fun in that? No matter how many plastic bags you use, you always feel like you need to wash your hand after-wards regardless.

The Pooper Scooper, NOT ONLY a clever name, but a great invention!

HOWEVER! Imagine trying to use a Pooper Scooper in SPACE!??!?!?!

CRAZY TO THINK ABOUT AIN'T IT? FUCK YA

Thank god for gravity, or else the Pooper Scooper would be worthless...
Thank god for this man :



The Original scooper:


Now a Plethora of New Pooper Scooper idea's!:

HALLO-WEENIER!

Last night was pretty damn rad! As I said before, The Private Dancer's, and the Misfritz were playing at Past Times. It was AMAZING!

I got off work and headed home, called Andy and he came over with a bottle of Mount Gay Rum, and a Red Barron Pizza. Ate that and had a few drinks. Then decided to walk downtown.

The show was nuts, wayyyyyy too many people were there, and wayyyyy too much good loud music. Kari told me today that I knocked her over in the pit and didn't even try to help her up. I denied it at first mainly because I didn't remember it was loud and crowded, fuck. Well I logged into facebook today and I found this picture that I was tagged in, and if you look closely enough, you can see Kari in her Yoshi costume just sitting on the ground.




SORRY KARI!!!! <33

Winter Is Here!

With COLD temperatures hitting through out California, Winter has arrived. Today being the Day before Halloween, multiple resorts opened throughout the World's Greatest State of California. Boreal re-opened today with 20 features. A jump line amd a rail line. By far the best opening they have pulled yet. (Besides it was their Second re-opening THIS SEASON.) I had the chance to ride Boreal earlier today, I will post pictures later. It was AMAZING AND FUN, super-extra ordinarly-pooptastic FUN.

Also around the Lake Tahoe Area, Mt. Rose opened a run as well today. It is the magic carpet run, but it is still shred!

Heading down south : Mt. High and Bear Mtn. both opened to the public today!!! On a slight change of event's, Mammoth is not yet open. Mammoth also does not plan on re-opening until Nov. 7th.

In mu opionion with all these resorts throughout California to snowboard at daily, WINTER IS HERE AND IT IS EARLY!

Bro-Cal So-Cal

I am in Newport Beach this week, visiting family, friends, and surfing. I am crashing at Lyndsy Turdley's house right on the beach. This evening I decided to walk the 3 blocks down to the local super marker to grab a pizza and something to drink. As I was walking across the street a guy walking his dog saw me wearing all black, except for my shoes. He yells "Blah Blah, just like this FAGGOT over here in the red shoes!" So I turn and look at him and he is wearing a RED hoodie.

Really man? You just gave me something to laugh at instead of yourself.

I hope this guy was sooo incredibly high that he forgot he was wearing a red hoodie and when he got home from walking his dog, he looks at himself and cusses himself out for being a faggot in red.

I LOVE SO CAL

MAMMOTH DUMPAGE!

The Dali Lama

A passage by the Dali Lame

We can conceive the nature of mind in terms of the water in a lake. When the water is stirred up by a storm, the mud from the lake's bottom clouds it, making it appear opaque. BUT THE NATURE OF THE WATER IS NOT DIRTY. When the storm passes, the mud settles and the water is left clear once again. So although generally we may suppose mind, or consciousness, to be an inherent and unchangeable entity, when we consider it more deeply, we see it consists of a whole spectrum of events and experiences.

This quote is something I always remind myself of whenever I get angry, sad, or go through what I feel is a rough time. We need to remind ourselves, we are ALIVE and that is INCREDIBLE! I always find myself saying I am having a rough day, or that my week sucked. In all honesty, I HAVE IT SO GOOD, MY LIFE IS AMAZING, and I try to remind myself that no matter what I go through.

Opening Day at Boreal

Today Boreal opened with a few features. It was a complete Shit Show and Fashion Show, but in all regards it was FUN. I didn't really care about the horrible sticky snow or the shit tons of people crowding all over the place, or even the dirt patchs and rutted out landings. It was fun. Instead of taking my camera out to get a few shots, I decided to just ride all day and have fun.

Last night marked the second snow day in Tahoe, and today marked the FIRST snow day in Truckee. There is at least three inch's on Donner Pass and Boreal. Which will only help them open early, and help the rail jam go down!!! It was dumping today for a while and started to collect! Yay for snow!!!

September Snow; Tahoe's 1st Snow

September 30th was Tahoe's first dusting and snow fall. On that day I had to drive down to Reno for a few reasons, and saw that it had actually snowed, even with the weather men saying "20 % chance." It has been really cold and is starting to feel like winter. Boreal is even making snow and is looking to open early to mid October, weather permitting of course. There was snow on Tahoe Donner, over Donner Pass, on the tip of Northstar, and on Mt. Rose. Here are some photos.

FUNNY!

This fine evening, we were talking snowboarding (what else is new? i know we are gay.) Anyway a friend of mine brought up that Forum makes good snowboards... I laughed, then he said that Burton was an awesome company, we all laughed. Then the friend got rather mad saying we were talking shit on Burton (we kinda were... I mean who doesn't?) He then called me out and said "Fuck you David, you ride the Stash at Northstar, and you hate Burton... whats that?" I then said "If you are going to pull that card, I can pull this one... You ride Rome and Nike snowboard boots, that's a contradiction!"

Ended up I got cussed out for saying "I'm not hating on you... I am hating on the company, your aloud to like whatever you want."

PEOPLE ARE FUNNY!!!!
