You my friend have crossed the line that divides man from bum

Oh mama the last while has been just unreal, I have been chicken farming in the mornings mt biking all afternoon then white water kayaking all night. Sunday I went for a paddle with Brad and Chris on the chilliwack and the story was crazy. So Chris can roll and brad can not roll, they both flipped at the same place and both ended up swimming. chris saved his boat and paddle and brad just had a full on yard sale. I paddled down 1.5km down the river and saved the boat but the paddle is long gone. when I was saving the boat I saw a little tiny bear cub on the banks. Long story short brad hiked/swam down to meet us and got a free pair of shoes for some guy in the woods and ran into mama bear. then we hit vedder and I hucked it huge on my brand new trek ex 8 maybe the best bike ever made, look for a bike report on here in the coming weeks. yesterday saw Marty and I hit up a epic epic abbotsford ride, for those in the know we rode lazy boy, tools of the trade, mixed bag, knob gobbler, holiday sauce, extra sauce and to finish off we did the soft taco. then at night we hit up the chilliwack for a dope paddle. Marty's numbers are 1 swim 2rolls, not bad for a punter.

no heated seats? Im out!

The last month has been great, spring is the best time of year and I have been getting out like crazy! I think I have been paddling almost every day and mt biking a lot. The surf wave at pointa vista has been unreal and I really learned to surf my kayak, surfs up dude! I was up on vedder yesterday and ran into this cougar, I was solo but I just flexed my biceps and he ran off with his tail between his legs. Here are some photos from the last while.
Last weekend Jon, Shantelle, Claire and I hiked up to green drop lake up the chilliwack river valley, It was kind of rained in but the lakes looked so awesome! This hike has a ton of Boulder sections and with the rain made it kind of a challenge, I managed to slip on some rocks and tear myself a new one.
Row row row your boat? Claires family has a cabin up by 70mile house and we went up there for some fishing and smore making. Fishing not so good, smore making, very good. Max just loved the water and was in it all the time, we also took him for a 40km mt bike ride and he ended up chasing a deer.

Big moose little moose, right by green lake, kind of cool.

I took connor out on this unreal trail on sumas mt called Knob gobbler-holiday sauce-extra sauce. Connor crashed near the top and tore his (my old) jersey, plus he got a dope cut, Connor is kind of new to mt biking all Connor sucks at everything jokes aside he rode it quite well, I was kind of impressed. I think he was riding so well so that he could get home to see my sister sooner.

Jon and I did this tv thing for telus, kind of cool!

Best weekend ever! (serious I think so)

This may have been the best weekend ever, Sunday I had the best best mt bike ride ever in abbotsford on sumas mt and in the morning I went kayaking on the chilliwack river. The real kicker of the weekend was the Saturday Corn Dawg and I had, we took my wicked tercel 4x4 up to mt cheam packed with a dog, skis, and bikes. It was all fogged in at the bottom then as we got to the top we were above the clouds. Unreal!
Riding with a bunch of Doctors up sumas mt road, its like a solid 30min climb then you get this unreal single track down with tons of flow and jumps it was so much fun!
kayak on the chilliwack, surfs up dude, I went with a couple 14year old girls and I got showed.

anyone can go down the river right side up, I think its a whole lot harder going up side down.

Jolly miller home of the ultimate burger, a must after a long day in the woods.

Big hair big air

max was a little tired at the top, full nap for him.

I had to hold on to max at the top cuz he wanted to stand on this nasty cornice and there is cliffs all over the place.

corn dawg almost at the top and loving it.
