Downtown Throwdown

Adventure -

The Downtown Throwdown was heading to Seattle WA. so we decided to go up and have a good time. Paul, Dylan, and Parker were covering it, so Colt and I decided to go along for a fun time. The entire trip was an adventure. We didn't hit the road until 12.30 am on friday morning, drove through the night and arrived in Seattle around 1 pm later that day.

First thing we did was go to the space needle and scope that out, then went to the rock in roll music experience museum. Later got a hotel room and hit the town. The next day the contest started so we went and it was pouring rain, but the contest stayed on schedule. The after party was pretty awesome.

The next morning woke up late to drive the 12 hours home.

Here is some proof of what went down. Paul's video and Dylans photos. are linked.

First snow

It is that time of year again here in Tahoe. That's right... the temperatures have dropped and the snow has started to fall. October 4th was first snowfall, and the next day we were out in full force shredding the 1-3 inches of Mt. Rose, NV. It was a much needed activity for all of us going stir crazy without seeing snow on the ground and not being able to make turns. Heres a few pictures from my phone...

I have gone through my share of stuff that has put my life in a strange spiral the last month. Who hasn't? Well the last few events I have gone through have scared me and made me realize a few things. These things being that people.. no matter who they are will find some way to disappoint you, life is full of change, mistakes, and surprises, they are usually for the better, but you have to just go with it, and sure you can be scared of the unknown future, I am I can get scared of it sometimes. However due to a close friend who has made me realize that I am a 22 year old adventurous and fun loving kid, why worry. I got another 20 or more years of growing and learning.

Life is about learning who you are, and who you want to be... and taking the steps to get to the better person.
I do not know what changed that made me forget that... but people are generally assholes, hypocrites, d-bags, fuck ups, failures, and dont give a flying shit about you. Life is about finding the few good people that do care about you and letting them care for you no matter what. And make sure they know it... even if they one day crush you... cuz if you get crushed it only makes you a better person to rise up from the wreckage as a stronger better person.

Live life be Happy... Fuck the assholes they can be unhappy in their own personal life.

Too much Technology for Dumb ppl.

This happened a week and a half ago and this guy is pretty much FUCKED! Military Choppers practice in Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, and almost lost the Helicopter at the bottle of Emerald Bay. Luckily he is a talented pilot.

Convinced I'm Wrong.

Don't try and sound right, just hope your honest
Trust you'll end up somewhere
That girl that made you promise
she says "try not to care"
I don't know if I'm good, and everyone knows it
You ever feel you were meant to be alone?
Because I saw a play and and a character said
that he was destined to never feel at home
Don't go tonight, I'm looking for salt in a snow globe
Because what I had is slipping fast.
Dr. Howe, Please call back
I'm not sleeping in, I don't care
I'm singing loud but no one hears
I'll wake up tomorrow and still feel wrong for these days
What I had is slipping fast
Dr. Howe Please call me back.
What good am I to anyone like this?
It's been a hard couple months I'll admit
After tonight I'm not so convinced that I'm wrong
I feel at ease with my lows, and I'll take it.
Lord knows I'll take it.
Tonight they're explainable, far from extraneous.
Always expectant
I seldom discover or turn flaws into questions.
Great questions of the times.
I guess I'm an artist who's confines brought him luck
choked by second guessing
I know that's not enough

Best Weekend EVER!!!!

It's been a while since I have posted anything. Main reasoning being that I have been busy with summer activities and work. Here are a few of the activities I have done since it has officially been summer here in Tahoe.

This is by far the BEST WEEKEND EVER, and I dont even have photos of half of it!!!

on Friday evening we all met up 10 miles south of I 80 right by Emigrant Gap. We ended up starting a fire, drinking some beers, and BBQing. The next morning I woke up to take Jacki to the 80 so she could go skydiving in Lodi, and I was jealous that I was not going with her to jump out of a perfectly good plane. After that I went back to camp and had breakfast then hiked to the Bear River right by our camp sight and did some cliff jumping and swimming with all the friends. After that we decided to go to Emerald Pools for some more cliff jumping and swimming.

Sunday morning we then went to Boreal for some Summer shred!! Jacki, Tim, Jeff and I got to Boreal and met up with Keith and Fancy to shred and had some awesome FUN. I was riding my board from this season and had a giant core shore and missing part of the edge and it kept catching so I declared it was the last day of the season and snapped it.

Bay to Breakers 2010

Lincoln Highschool skate sesh

Casey working to get his new deck together, Dylan eating some KFC and TB

Josh sucks

For Casey's 20th birthday some of the Flop House decided to go down to San Francisco for a few days to skate at some world famous spots, party, and go to Bay to Breakers, which is pretty much the west coast version of Mardi Gras. Needless to say it was EPIC. We left Truckee around 8pm on Friday night. Dylan's mom was gracious enough to let us all sleep there. Dylan, Casey D, Josh, and I were so stoked for the trip. Josh had never been to San Fran in all it's glory.

Got in late due to an accident on the Bay Bridge that engulfed three lanes. Went to a house party on Haight street, and then went to go to sleep. Next morning woke up very early to go skate around the city.. Ended up going to a few famous spots and had a lot of fun.

That night we got a few 40's and went up to the top of a hill top and looks over the entire city, then went out to the Raddest hookah bar I've ever seen. Got a little drunk and then walked back to Dylan's place.

The next day woke up got some coffee and trekked over to bay to breakers starting line. Couldnt find any liquor stores so spent an hour trying to find one. Spent way too much money, bought four 12 packs and a bottle of Jamo and started the walk. Half way through we lost Josh, Johnny, Jena, and Jordan! The rest of the day was spent walking trying to find them all, but none of their phones were charged so it was almost pointless. We walked the entire 7 mile stretch and finally found Jordan. As we started to walk back to Dylan's place we got a call from Josh saying he was down at Sunset with a few Bros he had never met. We hoped on a bus to meet him. We then decided to go find Johnny and go all over the city. Right as we were going to step on a bus johnny called us saying he was at Dylans!

Went back home and slept ALL night. Next morning woke up and spent the day with Lena and Dani on Haight street shopping and drove back in the shitty rain.

Me, Lena, Dani.

Jordan, Dani, Lena and I flipping off Josh cuz he got lost

I kept stealing these giant jugs of water through out the day to stay hydrated..
