TOUGH MUDDER 
Monday, May 30, 2011, 10:33 AM

Our Memorial Day consisted of going to Big Bear to do a Tough Mudder race. As you well know I am a really competitive person as well as my two friends with me , Rob and Amie. Rob is my fitness coach for the summer time, and this seemed like the perfect thing to for Amie and I to rope him into doing. This was the hardest thing I have ever done. It was a ten mile race up and down Snow Valley several times, and doing things like crawling in mud under barbed wire and hauling logs up and down a mile. To wrap up the race we had to run through a electrical field that would shock you so hard it hurts your teeth and makes your hearth feel like it jumped directly out of you chest.

I love you so much MOM. Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me in my life. You are my mental rock and I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for YOU and DAD. Miss you so much when I travel, but I am always thinking of you.
Love,

Museum of Death 
Friday, April 29, 2011, 12:51 AM

In this picture>>>Kathy, Jesse and me
Last trip up to LA, I went to visit the Museum of Death on Hollywood BLVD. It opens up a new perspective to the meaning of life. The museum had such great history of famous deaths, murders, serial killers, embalming procedures and funeral details, the list goes on. It was run by the most energetic and enthusiastic couple (JD and Kathy) I had ever met. They instantly made me feel welcome and gave me a tour of their museum.

HAPPY EARTH DAY 
Friday, April 22, 2011, 10:37 PM

From the left...Jeff Weatherall, me, Amie Thomas, Becky Mendoza and Jesse Heilman
Today I got to sleep in...that was nice since I have been going non stop ever since I got to Cali. It was a beautiful day so we decided to take a stroll on the beach and pick up trash. We did that for about two hours and enjoyed the sun and company. You would not believe the kinds of thing that we found. We collected a ton of trash in a mile and a half strip. So please remember to throw away your trash and don't be a litter bug.

Long Beach Grand Prix 
Monday, April 18, 2011, 12:01 AM


This was the first time I have ever gone to an indy car race. I went to the Long Beach Grand Prix to see my friend race with Jesse. We had the best time cruising through the whole event. There was so much to see. We got to go in the pit before they started the race and check out the cars up close, I could of hoped in one if I wanted. There was also the paddock where all the trailers were lined up for every racer. So many things to choose from, vendors, food, drinks and clothing of your favorite racer. Thank you so much for the tickets James!!!! After the race James let me get in his car to see what it felt like. The car is custom molded to your body to ensure a safe and comfortable fit. My hips were having a hard time fitting into his seat, ha.
It was also great that the crew from the east coast Mackenzie, Cesira and Tyler were able to join.

New Skate 
Thursday, April 14, 2011, 05:05 PM

Got my new skate last week. Tried it out at the fair for my main mode of transportation. Loving being in the sun and hanging out with friends, life is great. Been out in Cali for a week and the home search continues. Wish me luck in the search.... :)

Cali Sunset Cruise  
Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 12:26 AM


Weather is warming up and do you know what that means????? That means I am in Cali surfing and doing every other activity I can think of. Pedaling through town is my favorite way to get around. There is so much to do, there are fairs and stores to snoop in and when you add friends to a sunset mission it just ties the day together so nicely.

It would be really sweet if you could pull me into TOWN!!! 
Sunday, April 10, 2011, 08:19 PM

This weekend there was a fair in downtown Encinitas. Amie and I wanted to stroll downtown but in style. Lots of great crafts, home furnishings, jewelry, and food. The weather was amazing, we could not have asked for a better day.

A Whole NEW MOUNATIN 
Sunday, April 3, 2011, 09:12 PM

I decided to switch things up and take out my new skis that Kessler gave me. What do you know, they feel as great as a Kessler board. I brought these back home with me when I was over in Switzerland at the Kessler factory. The skis felt so great, had a awesome shape and a sleek black look that caught everyones' eye.

My brother, Ben and my lake friend, Mark were also along for the ride...What we learned today was if some asks are you with Pedigree? You say YES.


For April 3, it was quite the amazing weekend, we had 8 inches of fresh snow yesterday and then the weather stayed cool to maintain the snow's freshness. There was no wet precipitation in the program. The sun was out all day as were we. There are roomers going around Stratton that they might stay open an extra weekend since they have had such a good snow year. We will know in a few days what the call will be on that, so stay tuned.

RODEL CONSTRUCTION 
Saturday, April 2, 2011, 09:33 PM


I had to take apart the rodel and pack it in my board bag to bring it home from Switzerland. In Europe they use the metric system, so the search for the proper size tools can be tricky. With help from THE THRILL (Will) we were able to put together to legendary rodel. I cannot wait to test it out on the slopes of Stratton.

My Last days on Stratton for the Season 
Saturday, April 2, 2011, 04:28 PM

TANGLED 
Thursday, March 31, 2011, 10:16 PM

I was so excited to come home because Tangled was out on DVD. I am absolutely in LOVE with Disney, and I am a firm believer that you are never to old for it. On my drive to VT today it was a total role reversal. My mom had been working all day, so we drove up together and I said I would drive. So my mom posted up in the back seat with the dogs and she watched Tangled. I thought that was really funny to look back at....great work Disney!!!
So I will be in VT for the next couple of days, weather is looking promising and there is snow in the forecast. Wondering what I will do tomorrow, either go up on the mountain or take a day to chill out with my mom and have a girls day.

Gruss aus Braunwald, Kessler Factory 
Thursday, March 31, 2011, 07:38 AM



Since I was in Switzerland I figured I should check out who has been making my boards for the last three years. This town is a little different than you ordinary Swiss Village. This requires you to take a 5 minute train up to the village, where there are no cars, they do however have three horses to get around. This was the simplest way of life I have every witnessed in Europe. The factory is in a logging mill and is so charming. I really want to see this town when it is completely covered in snow. See the related link below.

LAST WITCH OF SWITZERLAND, SAVE ANNA GOLDI 
Thursday, March 31, 2011, 07:24 AM

This was the house of Anna Goldi in Mollis, who was accused of being a witch, and was later beheaded and burned and the stake. Just recently Switzerland is pardoning her....a little late but check out her story. It is a classic, she has an affair with a high up man in the village and his way of dealing with it is to call her a witch, and get her out of his hair. She was then taken to Glarus to be executed in a barbaric way. Press the related link right at the bottom.

Yesterday CHUR and today RAPPERSWIL 
Sunday, March 27, 2011, 06:41 AM


After a rough ride down in the car, and getting a little sick I was able to rally and race for the GOLD. The carts go a little faster in Switzerland and the rules...well...they are not as strict.


Little stroll around Rapperswil today. More Castles.

FINISHED  
Saturday, March 26, 2011, 02:43 PM

Just finished the competitive season, last stop was in Arosa, Switzerland. I finished 7th in the first race and 2nd in the next one. This made me 3rd overall in the World Cup standings. Now I will be staying in Switzerland a couple more days to go to the Kessler factory and work on new shapes for my race decks.

Italy to Switzerland  
Monday, March 21, 2011, 11:13 AM

This was the route that we went, normally we would take the highway, but we wanted to take in the beautiful scenery. This drive was about 4 hours.


This was a road in the valley were all you could see around you was mountains (you think this road every closes due to avalanche, ha ha). There were a lot of people that would park and hike up to get fresh powder runs, only thing that was odd was people never really strayed too far from another person's line, almost like they wanted to do all that work for a tracked out run?????

This was an epic view the entire way. There were a lot of switchback turns to climb up the mountain, but that is to be expected.

DAY OFF 
Saturday, March 19, 2011, 02:30 PM

So today was really mellow. I had time to stroll around Valmalenco, not really anything to do but there are some great building and old churches. Like the one pictured above. This was the church supposedly where the Virgin Mary was sighted by several villagers. So they named the church after her. I felt weird trying to take pictures while I was inside, I didn't think it was right so I just appreciated it with my eyes.
On another note I have decided not to eat at the hotel anymore because they forgot to share some pertinent information with me. Apparently since we have been here we have been recycling our napkins at dinner. Some people would say that is not bad, recycling is a great thing....just listen to this. (I missed the first dinner because I flew in later, and apparently miss the instructional dinner that told you after you were done with your meal you put your cloth napkin into a big envelope and put you name on the outside of it.) After about three days I thought it was weird that I was taking a napkin out of an envelope, I mean that is not a normal thing that you see in the USA. The third day I noticed that my napkin was not very clean, also that it had a cluster of buggers, dried food, mustache marks and other things that I just don't want to say. I made a little scene and asked the waitress what was up. A few people on the team decided to share with us that we were reusing our napkins the whole trip, but since I never designated one for myself, me and a bunch of other teammates were rotating dirty napkins. I travel with guys for 9 months out of the year and I have to put up with some gross and dirty things, this dirty instance was a little too...in my face!

Race Day 
Thursday, March 17, 2011, 02:22 PM

Today was qualifiers in Valmalenco, Italy. The weather was snow/rainy mix, and that made it very difficult for the course workers to clear it off. As a result there was a delay and we did not race until 2:45. That being said, thank you to all the course workers that put in so much work to make our race still go on. Oh and I won time trials today.

RAIN RAIN, GO AWAY 
Wednesday, March 16, 2011, 01:16 PM

I am not going to sugar coat it anymore. Italy is beautiful, but as of late the weather had been really bad. As a result our training was cancelled, we only got to train 30 minutes on course today due to lack of visibility and conditions. The shot above is a picture that was taken right outside my hotel window. Hopefully the weather improves for race day.
