Australia National Down Hill

So this weekend I went to the Down Hill Nationals. In a word "FREAKINGHOT" all one word. It was dusty and hot. they had a forest fire a couple of years ago burning all the trees in the area to the ground. (Nice!) The weather there was unreal like in the mid forties. I thought i was going to pass out when we stopped the car and the A/C got shut off. madness.
Garrett did pretty well seeing as he only got three practice runs and most people had over twenty. so 33 was a good show out of the some hundred that showed up.

It was good times I sat myself by the biggest jump and watched crash after crash. two broken collar bones and one broken ankle. Pretty brutal. but I had a cold beer with me at most times so i was okay. I'm going to try and post a video i shot on utube then link it to this site so you can see Garrett taking the jump and almost eating it. Oh and I had them take a picture of the over all world Champ. enjoy.

Okay so i tried to set up the video but it's taking forever. so it'll have to be tomorrow. sorry.

Tool Concert

Well last night was the concert for TOOL. In a word..."Awesome" There was no opening act but still it was awesome. The show had lasers smoke and a major light show. It was so loud that i could feel the music passing through me making my whole body vibrate. It was awesome. good times.

Tomorrow I'm heading in land to watch Garrett compete in National Down Hill Championship should be good times. The weather is going to be crazy 42 degrees. Freaking hot.

I'll post more pictures when i get a better computer these PC's are so slow that it takes 20 minutes just to load one.

Finally In Astralia

Hey all!!

Well i made it. 27 hours traveling sucks ass. That and being 6'3 doesn't help either. But whatever. I took jet lag pills the whole way and they worked like a dream. no jet lag at all. weird? So this morning (my first real day here) I got up at 6 and went surfing. Waves were about 6 feet and I got crushed, but in my defense i was riding a borrowed board that was way different then anything I've ever ridden before. The beach is only minutes away from where i'm staying. I will post pictures later, I left the cord in my other bag and couldn't hook up my camera to this PC monster. Oh and it's going to be 38 degrees today. Hot. well I'll keep you all updated I'm heading to the blue mountains tomorrow for some climbing and cliff diving.
