Another fulfill trip to Orcas Island via iron horseback to visit and skate some of the wonders of the PAC North West. A ride with Elaine and new friend Forest aka Frosty took us up and around the Puget Sound to Port Orchard and Bainbridge Island to shred with Krudder and the Tavita family. A fun campout and next day shred was in order. Next we were off to Orcas Island where when you arrive, the worlds problems disappear and your imagination will wander with an amazing shred at the skatepark and endless hicking, camping and exploring. A full moon camp out at Obstruction Pass with Mike Drake and his crew was wild fun! More exploring and a quick jump in a lake were in order. As the trip came to an end we all went our separate ways. Elaine went to see Willie Nelson for her Bday, Frosty had a date in Portland with his band and I cruzed at the speed of life back to Portland. All in all, a great trip was had and wished it could continue forever............Endless Scummer!
Get out there and explore this world of ours cause it's FUN!!!
This years ride to the Giant Redwoods was a blast! Lots to see and lots to skate along the Oregon coast. Road trips are the best in both cars and on motorbikes and great for getting away from the everyday chaos of city life. If you haven't been on a trip for awhile, do yourself a favor and go and drive / ride the openroad and see where it takes you and what treasures are to be found along the way!
I've been working on this bike for a couple years now. After saving money to be broke and trying to scrape up free time to build her I have finally gotten her together enough to start riding around and sessioning the highways on the way to skate spots. It's always fun to jump in a car or van and go but it's a whole nother trip to hop on a DIY built bike and play in traffic at high(er) speeds while embarking on skate missions. I'm stoked that the Six Four has taken to her new adventurous lifestyle very well and we both are having a killer summer so far! As I iron out the kinks we are traveling further and further from the toolbox in the garage and having a good ol time together rolling from skate spot to spot. Tons of summer left to explore and skate. More good times lie ahead. Now I just need some more homies to ride to skate spots with. Now go build yer bike and let's go!
It's never too early to make summer Sk8 / MC trip plans. The REDWOODS ROLL is on again for 2013! Last year was a blast! Most folks will be riding up from the Bay Area while some more of us will be coming down from the Portland, OR area to meet and hang with new and old friends in the GIANT Redwoods. If your coming from the south (Bay area) check the blog for the itinerary, http://theredwoodroll.blogspot.com
If you are heading down from the North, we'll be ridding from PDX to Lincoln City and then all the way down the Oregon Coast skating spots and camping along the way. Motorcycles are strongly encouraged (if ya got one) otherwise Planes, Trains, and Automobiles are greatly welcomed! The object is to get out and away from the worlds madness and go explore, skate, and ride in search of the American Dream. Being that the trip is in mid July, Mother Nature will be at her BEST out on the coast providing excellent riding, skating, and camping weather!! the camp spot in the Red Woods has been reserved and will hold a lot of us. Last year there were about 40 dudes and ladies on bikes and cars who had one hell of a time partying around the campfire! The Open Road awaits.................get on it and see where it'll take you!
In celebration of the release of Fang's new album "Here Come the Cops" I've scanned in their interview from SAUCE #012 / 013 (click on images to read). Sammy and the fellas were happy to chat with us a little after their brunch set in Chealis, WA. Kool dudes, killer attitude, and badass music to help fuel your shred sessions!
