    Hey y'all,

    Just wanted to use "y'all" again. People here in Orygun look at you funny when you say it. Well, Mo and I have been Ridin' as much as possible and we hope to see any familiar faces real soon, out here in our new neck of the woods! This weekend we did a different kind of Ridin' so here are a few pics! Bo

    This is Cinder Cone Bowl at Mt Bachelor and is what we hiked.

    Holy crap Bo. I thought I was going to be able to show you up with Windrock's 2hr climb and our 15 min descent, but snow trumps dirt.

    I can't believe you guys have got Vati. She's crafty no doubt, but how well does she keep up on the descent?

    Hey man,

    The little girl (Vati) is as fast as us in 8-13" inches of powder or less, any more and she gets bogged. But it really is amazing to watch her hawlin' ass right in Mo's board track! Just like she chases her mom on the bike!
    We do attribute some of Vati's snow skills to her sponsor "Ruff-Wear" for her snow boots and soft shell jacket!Yes the dog is really sponsored! Thanks Ruff-Wear.

    Vati is so cool. However there is no way she could be my dog. I couldn't own a dog that is smarter than me.

    So is everyone in Oregon broke and near homeless so they can have a quiver of toys and lumber?
