Thompson river.

Sunday 6 of us paddled the thompson. Big waves and big fun! So Derek and anna went up in D rocks vibe and I drove the "deer killer"(my cars new name) up with Jazz, jordan, and Kiah. our car was so much fun! I had to play the responsible adult in the car. 16year boys can say some bad things so I kept things clean and wholesome, for my best interest and for Jazz's. The river was so much fun! I think the one section has waves as big as my house!
Some quotes on the drive.
Jordan in regards to the fly in the car. "its like Africa in here"

A very scared Jazz in regards to me driving way to fast in the dark pissing rain. "Ricky how can you see where your going?"

Ricky when asked are we there yet. "well the increase in rain has just increased so we are very close to chilliwack"

take out. where the Thompson and Fraser meet.

just another bike race.

Couple weeks ago I raced the Just another bike race in squamish. I guess I was well rested cause I had some good legs. I even got in the news paper

Other then doing one bike race I've been fishing, kayaking, and working.

This is an email I got from the squamish golden boy after the race.

"and for the record i killed myself racing yesterday.... Ricky, as per usual, made all us spandex-clad monkey's look like fools with his charismatic style; baggy clothes, merino wool, and mad speed. The chicken farmer still rips."

Thanks Neal. enjoy the photos.

Standing wave right out my back door. It was like 35c this day, Im paddling with just a pfd and spray deck.
