So a couple weeks ago Mike "27$ an hour" Levy had this unreal idea of going to Rossland. The plan was to drive out Wednesday morning, sleep in the van on some gravel road in the forest, then ride 7 summits Thursday morning, then drive home. Thats right, 13hrs driving and 4 hours riding. So of course I wanted in. I have to honor the "dude man" and do my best to fulfill rules 2 & 4. So Mike picked up Steve Uruski then me and we hit the road. After 6.5hours we arrived and I gave Rossland resident Steve Omischl a call to see if he wanted to ride with some hacks. Steve O took us up Red top trail. It was unreal! under an hour and just silly good. then we crushed some pints and crashed at Steve's for the night. Fully random and unreal! Rode 7 summits the next morning and Omischl drove the shuttle for us and we did the trail in 4.5 hours, it was maybe the best ride I've done all year. Then we pinned it home and took a shower in the river at rock creek. Rossland is the best place on earth, I wanna move so bad!

Bike season is in full swing. This last weekend was a gooder. Saturday I did the Just Another Bike Race in Squamish. Then Sunday, Craig, Melanie, and I did comfortably numb in Whistler. I have no photos from the race but you can find them on the double shutter web site. I also got my balls crushed by an impressive Neal Kindree who can shred squamish single track better then most. I ended up in 6th place on the day and got second in the timed down hill section. results. Not my best day ever on a bike but not bad for a guy who did more swimming and fishing and kayaking then riding bike. I also have the excuse that my chain guide broke and I kept loosing my chain all day. But in the end I was 15 min back from Neal. the guy could have ate lunch and had a shower while waiting for me.

Summer is the best! Until winter comes with its excellent pow pow. The riding, kayaking, and picking fresh goods out of the ground is just blower right now.

This is as good as it gets. for Canoe trips the Algonquin Park are so boss! Every real Canadian should have a canoe trip in the Algonquin on their bucket list. Melanie's brother Brad organized the entire thing. It was unreal! Brad and his gf Carly were in one canoe and Mel and I in the other. We did 3 days and 2 nights.
