Sorry for being "MIA" like you said in the news before...
Not much new going on, just the usual craziness around the holidays. A couple weeks ago me, Brian Vowell, Andy Kent and Dan Brindle drove out to Ohio for a long weekend. It was my first weekend on my new Colony. Shit is pretty sweet. My frame and fork together weigh almost less than my MacNeil frame did. And I just got one of those new KHE hubs that I can't wait to get laced up. It looks proper and isn't really heavy at all. X-Mas was so much fun with Thompson... he's the hit of the party everywhere we went... opening his own gifts, singin' songs, playin' catch.... Patie and I weren't going to get each other anything for Christmas but I went ahead and got her a couple presents anyway. I'm no dummy, I know what's good for me! Besides, one of the presents was from Victoria's Secret, so it's kind of like a present to myself anyway!
Dan and I are heading down to 4 seasons later this week. Clint really needs some photos for a colony ad right away and I've got a banger in mind that I've been dying to do. The rest of the month I'm just going to be riding around here getting ready for that big comp in Australia at the end of January. I guess there's a proper mini ramp comp so I'm kind of excited about that. Osato and Clint will be there so it'll be like old times at the world's. After that comp, me, clint, osato and the rest of the Colony team are doing a two week trip through New Zealand where we'll end up at the X-Air comp that I missed last year because of my knee... needless to say I'm pretty excited!
I've never been to New Zealand and a two week road trip would be a great way to see the place. Kachinsky hasn't stopped talking about it since the last time he went. I threw in a couple pics from us at the packer game and what not. Hope you had a good holiday. Don't work too hard.
Oh yeah, since Chad is Thompson's Godfather he sent him a Christmas present consisting of a mini football and a youth large jock-strap! Too funny.
