guess who’s eminem….

so its been a while, but fear not, i amback! a combination of really shitty internet, quitting my job and preparing for a move to canada has meant zilch zero diddly squat time to put pictures up that maybe 10 peo0pple will actually see… we been tripping, digging, riding, making friends, seeing old ones, making plans, and most importantly, GETTING RAD. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

ive lived here for my whole life, and aside from a drunken bike pub bike crawl i had never cycled the whole strawb line. me and marth caught the train up to yatton and on a splendid day in may, we cycled the 23 miles home. aside from some mega chafe (i have bought shorts and slimmer saddle since) and having to push my lady up the hills, proving to be a bit dodge haha we made it. ImageImageImageImageImageImage

 

before the green exploded. want to see the green explosion? ….

okay where im stood, thats the “lip” , over the next line and next to the small tree… thats the landing. be afraid, be very afraid. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

dialed in lawn. derek and co have some big jumps. i want to say that long one is 35ft+ and the next one…. ooosh. but in all seriousness, the stepdown before it. dave, you have a death wish. thanks to dezzer and the lads for having us. get painting boys! 

i have lots more to say, but no time. i have lots more photos too. the woods are green. 

rained out yesterday, but the sun is coming…. two jumps left to test and the woods are “done”

 

make fires, drink tea, talk shit. get out there and get rad.

spring gleaming

its quarter to twelve and i got poked real hard in the eye today by a stealth branch. that shit hurt! have you ever been poked in the eye by a stealth branch?! IT SUCKS. there i was mooching about, picking up a tarp and BANG branch in the eye. hurt like a bitch. if wasnt wearing safety ray bans i couldve been seriously fucked.

so todays lesson is wear saftey ray bans when spring cleaning kids.

 

pretty much spent the whole day clearing out 3 years of accumulated shite, from 30 bottles to cement bags to a full bag of lime thats now a block, i was meant to test out what a clay/lime mix would be like… oh well..

finally got the hut down… pittys favourite things are “smashing shit up and lifting heavy things” so he got straight to it tearing it down! top fella!

so now we are hutless. but to be honest, we dont use the hut in summer, only in winter and then not often. only when it pours. it was a pipedream, that got half started and never took off. will be build another? who knows… 😉

pretty damn impressed every year when we tale the tarps off… everything is dialed in ready to rock haha! apart from the haaggard lip. need s a bit of tender loving care. sort that tomoz. went round pinning everything too, should make life a bunch easier come riding time, it takes a good hour to untarp everything and sweep the lines. i think tarps actuallt pack the jumps in too, its rad, everything is smooth as hell.
