One step closer to an Ewok village.

Great build day despite the low turnout.

As many dogs as workers and they were no help at all.

Big ups to Rickreall Bargain Center for the lumber, we'll be back.

June 12, Dabby's Pedalpalooza event : Pumpapalooza, an adventure in suburban Vancouver aka Nw Pump Track Championships.

New Belgium beer, pump track, antics.

Group ride with alleycat option meet at 1pm at the Paul Bunyan statue.

Finish and at : 1417 NW 103rd Circle, Vancouver, WA
If you drive with your BMX please park outside the cul-de-sac to preserve room for footdown.

"It was a hard choice building a pump track in Vancouver because I knew I would be riding it by myself, but it turns out it's really fast and really fun."

catching up

We had a fantastic trip to Victoria on my birthday weekend.

I like this photo of Mace getting his foot stuck in mud during a trip down the Hide and Seek trail at Sandy Ridge.

With Grace O'Malley docked at Riverplace, Dayglo Ponds are my front yard.

Build Day + Blackrock this weekend.

Picture two giant wooden ladders descending from this log, dropping about 15 feet into berms and jumps. Wade and Cory have a crazy plan to make it happen.

The Marty Memorial Platform.

The beginnings of dandelion wine, my first foray into homemade booze. I'm attempting a batch of IPA in the next few days, keep your fingers crossed for me, no one's ever accused me of being meticulous or detail oriented.
