Breaking News

Running around the house getting stuff together for hood and the phone rings...

Snowdogg - "Michael Jackson is dead, hes in cardiac arrest...hes dead" i dont really know why he called to tell me that information, but it is no doubt a sad day for their family and the pop community. He may have wierded out but you cant deny timeless classics like this one.

HCSC blood drive


Hey whats up! On June 12 High Cascade held a blood drive. After a long day of looking for a cell phone and no shreddin, we went to Government Camp to get some food and do laundry. Shmee was in deep thought about the needle while we ate at Charlie's Mountain view across the street. When it was time he gave it the chicken out so I had to fly solo. Fortunately the doctors and staff were really really nice and had some pretty funny jokes. After alot of paperwork and aids questions it was time to donate!!!
The hard part was is over, it was snack time!!!! Good thing I was the last of only 30 donors that day, the nurse over heard that we were camping so she said that it was her and red crosses pleasure to hook us up with all kinds of goodies! she filled a trash bag full of Caprice suns and trail mix and oreo's and other snacks!!! super sponsored by the red cross. thank you again if you ever read this!!



Pipe 2 Pipe

Riding Windells was the best. We showed up early and registered under pro cause the am jam was for campers. On the way down from Palmer we hit the skii Moguls like always but this time after I hit it, I looked back up and Scotty Arnold was riding right there with us! Followed up by a siiick backie by Justin. Practice was probably the most fun. Using the rope tow was amazing!! Best feeling ever. So during the heat we got split up trying our best to advance to the game of HAM finals. Neither of us made it. Matty mo killed it, Sawyer Dean killed it as well, that kidd has a wicked back lip. Anyways during the final I couldn't stop, had to keep taking windells laps cause it doesn't happen everyday. I was working on frontside heel fives. schmee watched on with fellow rider "Jeff" as the final came to an end. we rode a few more then peaced. Later that day we went down to Windells camp to watch the skate comp.  once again I  found myself charging the outside cement bowl after a complete amp up from California hommies. Scotty Arnold came and we had a two man bowl skate sesh. It was pretty epic. But the actuall comp went down sick. so many good tricks. Matty was DJ 'n  and we was chillin. all in all it was a good day.
registration.chairride. wez goin to windells hollathis dude took one

rope tow!!!

LAUREL HILL

The village of Government Camp formerly a camp on the old Barlow road. The village was named in 1849 when U.S. Calvary troops were forced to abandon wagons and supplies.

Part of the historic Oregon Trail was Laurel Hill. The pioneer road detoured the Columbia River rapids and Mount Hood to the Willamette Valley. The road at first followed an old indian trail. the later name was the Barlow road. Travel was difficult. Early travelers named the hill from the resemblance of native leaves to laurel. Imagine carrying everything you own in a wagon over the boulders in this dangerous chute. Using ropes snubbed to trees or sometimes dragging trees behind as brakes. Emigrants managed to get wagons down these hazardous openings. This chute was just one of a series of treacherous descents facing Barlow road travelers as they clambered off laurel hill and out of the cascades.


So Justin and I stopped off the road for a little grapeblt break at Laurel Hill. We had no idea what it was until we reached the chute summit. while walking up we got caught in a thunder and lightning storm. it was loud and wet. It must of been really crazy for the settlers. We decided to take the quick way down the chute and took some pics along the way. steeper then it looks for sure!!

Diggin Through the Archives: Hike to Shred



Archive footage from the 2007/2008 snowboard season. Featuring Couchboys team riders Curtis, Tim, Whetstone and I. With our local resort Mt High closed for the summer we had to send it west, deeper into the LA back country in search of snow. Curtis scoped it from his house in East Palmdale, and by scoped we mean telescoped. see more in the snowboard video "1/2 Way to Nowhere" coming out "who the F knows when 09"
