High as a Kite and Twice as Free.

I am a strong believer in the phrase “walk it off”. For example, last night I hung up on a blunt to fakie and went straight to flat on my wrist and hip. Walked it off. Skated some more and got really angry because I couldn’t land my trick. Again, walked it off. However, there are just some times and places when that very credo shouldn’t exist. This is one of them.

Josh and I were driving home from Cream City last week and saw that the police had blocked off Silver Spring drive. We went around and came upon the reason the street was blocked. As you can see from the photo on the left, some guy decided it was time to die and drove his truck off the top of that bridge. Unbeknownst to him, the wind and height were a perfect match and he landed the jump flawlessly. Unfortunately he didnt have enough of a landing pad and ran into the wall (right photo). Now you would think he would be dead or at least severely injured, but apparently dude just walked it off. Amazing. Oh, and for the record, Josh took those photos.

My good friend Derek over in Madison wants you all to go the premiere of the Alumni video in Madison on December 9th. With parts from Andrew Norris, Travis Erickson and Dave Mayhew, you cant go wrong. So go.

This is Dan. Dan drives a Saturn and loves to fish. Dan also loves to dress like Gallagher and drink his weight in Olympia Light Ice. Here he shows his love for wallies and clears the big-ish 2.

This is Mike. Mike drives a Suburban and makes good stencils. He also loves crisp new wheels and decided to make his own. Mike frontside nosegrinds the cement ledge that slopes downward.

Later nerds.
