Where's this snow already?  I've been dancing around in circles with long underwear on my head for hoursLOL   We deserve a real winter event in this area before the end of winter, I want a snow day.

I'll look him up. I was tattooing for a bit on the side so I know the works a little bit. But I'm super picky now on who I let ink me lol. I'm pissed the guy who started my one sleeve well half sleeve moved before our second session. So I gotta find someone to do my color portion. And that person has to be sick! I might have mark heggie from big top tattoo do my color. Look that guy up he's sick and the girl I used to date knows him and can hook me up.

I got a guy that can tat you up.  It's my buds bro-in-law.  He rides with us once and a while.  He's goofy, but he can tat like no other.  I dig his work.  Look for him on facebook (if ya got one) I think he's going by the name "so inked up" right now or maybe "crybaby nic", he's got some pics up there. 
Yeah, it's been hard to get going this season.  Work, money, time, bad weather, ppl's schedules, etc. all seem to make it tough.  Usually I at least get out back a couple dozen times, but this season didn't let me do all that.  Sounds like we might get a little snow this weekend.  If you've got time holla.  I work until 3 Sat/Sunday, but I'll ride out back one or both of those days if rider turnout demands the Lab be open.  I know it's not the thrill of a real hill, but it does give you a little fix. 
And/Or, you could play hooky from work one of these days.  I'm at Nubs/Highlands this week and now thinking about going back the following for maybe nubs/shanty.  Or at least something local.

I've come to feel that my season has been aborted guys! Between working most weekends and this piss poor weather, I'm just not as stoked as I was around Christmas. It's depressing. Bought a ton of new stuff and for what??? Lol. Anywho I guess I just need something to boost my mood towards it.


On another note, anyone going to the tattoo expo this weekend at the ren cen??? I'm going Saturday and I heard that you can do a 3 hour session for $100. So I may start my other sleeve :)

Hells yeah.  Riding switch is a trick in itself.  It's one thing I don't think I do enough of.  I'm always telling a couple of buddies to ride it more often cuz it'll help with their tricks and all around riding. 
For sure let me know if you'll be at Nubs.  I think it's just going to be me and my girl.  Maybe a buddy, but he's one of the guys that bailed on the Bo trip. 
I'm really looking forward to Nubs, it looks like they've upped the park in the last few years in a great way.  Hoping they improved the sbx course as well.

It was a sick foot plant!
I agree w/ the weather being crap.. but I have learned a few things too becuz the conditions haven't been the greatest. best of all I can ride switch now (not great, but can do blue runs). So, that has been something that has me stoked to ride even if the conditions aren't the best.

I might hit nubs next Tues and use a BOGO Shell voucher.  If there is some good snow up there I may have to meet up w/ you!

Lance Mountain!  Great call ctoma!  That was def 'Lance Mountainesque'
He still does them! i caught some deal about him.. maybe a 1st hand... on FuelTV this past summer.

Tried to make snow last night, got a crapped out compressor which made me ice.  If it ain't one thing......
But, at least I got my first plant yesterday.  Which being an old man made me happy I was able to do.  Anyhow, this sums up half my session yesterday.

bout to do this in about an hour....maybe.  Probably ride for a couple hours (energy dependant).  It looks okay out there, some hard pack, but it's enough for some fun.  Looks like we're going to see 50 this week, so this will be the last of "prime" conditions for around here (unless a miracle happens).
 
Thinking about maybe trying to ride Tuesday or Thursday afternoon/evenings.  Those warm days can be fun back there.

Looks like the forecast changed. I'm seeing a lot of, am show showers, few snow showers and flurries in the forecast for Cab to Boyne Mt this weekend and next week! Big smile  *weather.com and accuweather.com*   Looks like low to mid 30s.  And rain/ snow maybe tues... hoping it's only snow!

Hopefully that ups to snow, snow, snow, snow, snow!!!

Who's riding where this weekend?!?!?
99% chance of Cab for me.  Maybe Shanty Creek.. but most likely Cab.
We still need to figure out a Boyne Mt. meet-up or something. Somewhere we can use the shell ski free buy one get one vouchers.

I'm so jealous of anyone that has an actual hill in their yard.  My little bro out in K-zoo has a gentle slope and a nice chunk of land.  I tried to talk him into building a free standing wall, but it didn't happen this year.  The wall is a lot of fun, even if I can only do a move or two on the thing this year.

Alright, after being a hermit all day I finished my video for my entry into Rome's backyard contest.  Hopefully youtube doesn't mute the audio.  I couldn't help it though, I really like the song.  Maybe now that I'm done with this I can get my Bohemia footage together.
 
Anyhow, I probably won't win, but tell me what you think of the video anyhow.

yeah that would be sick!  I know the peak U are talking about.. looks like a giant boob.  There are def a few peaks and ridges U can see from the lifts that look inviting.   
I don't think I'm bad... I don't box, no karate... just here to make friends with everybody

An extended stay in the UP would be pretty sweet.  Be pretty cool to hit Bo for a couple days and try some of the other hills up there too.  I've heard the Porkies weren't worth all the hype, but they have a nice vertical, some backcountry, and some great views.
 
I think it'd be super kewl to get some sleds and check out some stuff off the beaten path.  I know you've seen the big peak a few miles away from Bohemia Mike.  When you get to the top (from the main lift) I think it's to the east, there's that big hill in the middle of nowhere.  Between that and all the little secret spots in that area we could spend some serious time up there.

MikeD - Yeah, definitely let me know if you and your buddies are going to be at Shanty/Schuss one of the days I'm there (arriving late Tuesday night, I'm going to be riding Wed - Fri).

Hate to quote myself,  This elevation was in reference to Indianhead.  Guess I should clarify that.
 
I gotta agree with MikeD, It (Bohemia) is like the top 1/3 of a western mountain.  Only difference is you're not above the tree line.
 
Hey Mike, your bro still lookin' to get ride of those Hails?
 
And- Anyone going to Holly today?  Tremendous Tuesday-$20 


I'm sure he still has them!  I will contact him and get a price for U and send U a PM.. or PM me if I forget LOL

Stuck at work, no chance of hitting Holly today.

Reservations confirmed at Shanty/Schuss for next week, anyone else interested?  I secured discounted rates.  Two packages available, lodging and lift ticket or lodging, lift ticket and breakfast.  Let me know, cut-off date is this Friday.

Here's a handy little chart for comparing all the hills in MI, you can thank me now or later:

Cab is always good like that.  I've never paid full price there.  I wish every hill in MI had such deals.
 
Nice work on the link there C, that chart is awesome.  There's hills on there I didn't even know existed.
 
Had a pretty rad day at Holly today.  Got to ride my Malolo the second half of the day, that thing really likes jumpsSmile  It's been a while since I've been that far off the ground.  I was actually clearing the landing for one of the jumps, it messed with me, but made me feel badass at the same time.
