Luckily smiling doesn’t take that many numbers if you know how to use them efficiently.

Give this kid a high five if you see him… or some numbers. The shred lives on all summer long at one oh skate!

Your author traded some numbers for some smiling of his own too!

In any case, that’s probably just about enough pictures of the smiling we got for trading in our numbers. Later…

…Sk8er… onto winter! (If you didn’t watch it earlier in the TR, check out a quick vid from the summer).

    Not that I’m complaining, but how did all the bikini links end up at the end of a skate board story? Nice pics, Tony Alva would approve (showing my age…)

    Looking back into the Notch the right side is where we got lost about 1980 (yeah, before your time)and yours truly, as the fearless (and brainless) leader, was told to jog down Spruce Peak and back up to the lime green Fiesta at the Notch, and then buy beers as punishment for causing panic in the troops. Great hike, though, a little snow up top for early October. won’t be long. great pics and vid clip.

      love your tales Bushman! Keep sharing them! If you ever want to post a “TR from the Archive” to FIS, we’d be glad to consider it. Especially if it’s got any old pics, that’d be AWESOME.

      email me through my profile if you want to chat. THanks for reading!

      no we haven’t yet… but i’m thinking about getting either that, or a mountainboard (like a mountain bike, but a skateboard… good for going down trails… has a brake [so it’s cheating XD], etc…) next summer.

      i’d love to take this type of summer board sport out onto all our grassy slopes! why not?!

      thanks. yeah i agree. there isn’t a whole lot of meat in roaming around and rolling down some pavement for a “TR”-proper, so had to really aim for the “feel” of it instead. glad it worked for you
