Winter is on the way. I just ordered my new kit for this season. I am getting The Ride Machete, Contraband binding, and Deuce boot. It looks way sick. Can't wait for it to arrive!!! I will post some pics when it gets here. Also hoping to get the Ride Slackcountry for my powder board. Let it snow. Should have some some snow roll in tomorrow.

So I am making some pretty major changes to my plans for the future. At least for the next few years. I have decided to go to school. I had started college about 6 years ago when I worked at Qwest but quickly dropped out after 2 weeks. I was not motivated at all. I felt succesful enough in my work I guess I just didn't feel it important to do the whole school thing. However since the economy tanking I have taken a new look at things. I have not been working since Oct 2 and it's been nice to just have some time to think about stuff. I am excited for my new future and what it may bring.
So for the past almost 19 years since we have been winter camping we have either slept under the stars or just put up a tent when weather was bad. But this year we are building a nice little shack. This is a pic of it with a couple of the walls put together. It will be lined with roofing paper and everything to ensure no water gets in. We will fill it with about a foot deep of straw for insulation. Monday or Tuesday if the weather holds we are going to take it up in pieces and assemble it up at the camp site so its ready to roll. During the winter it will be under up to 15 feet or more of snow, so we will need to dig steps down into the entry. It's going to be totally out of the wind and the elements. Should be pretty sick!!! I will get some pics after we put it up and then post more when winter hits.
