Portland/Mt. Hood, OR

so before leaving Seattle for good i figured i hve one last run for fun and go hit up Mt. Hood, OR for some summr sessions.
trip agenda:
greyhound to portland
get picked up by friend kyle
go to hood
bus to portland
fly home

what actualy happened...

GHETTO greyhound to portland-i was partially scard for my life
kyle arrives on a bike
(keep in mind i have all my gear and some clothes)
so we take a cab to his friends house and we stay there for the night
next morning (monday) kyle informs me him and his buddy Chris have to go to court at 11 for a some drunken incident
im cool with it i still have tuesday and wednesday to ride
so we spend all day in portland
(and there was some wierd some in ortland - big surprise, right?) and then catch a bus to a bus to the train to another bus to kyles house
we lucked out and it only cost us 5 bucks to get from portland to mt.hood - awesome.

T-Rex eating My Little Pony - so sad yet so funny

train station
train station-they were gentleman and carried my gear for me the whole way
whatever conclusion you come to for this one you let me know...

so the next morning Kyle and i wake up and ride
i find Raleigh towards the end of the day and then we decided to head back as it was gettin late and we were gettin worked

Mt.Hood in the summer glory
kyle and meeee
as always flashin the Shocker (Kyle and Me)
Raleigh droppin trou - it was hot up there
snow sign
this is how mesages get relayed at Hood - so up to date yeah?

so we go back to the house
Kyles roomie,roomies GF, and roomies lil bro were all half way to hammersville - it didnt take too long for kyle to catch up
half a bottle of jack and two night trains later the four of us(Chris-roomie,Khia-roomie gf, Matt-roomie lil bro, ad myself) are all in a bubble bath - with suits.
boys being drunk decide to drop trou. so khai and i are sitting in a tub with 2 naked boys - then kyle comes in decides he needs to shae a lil somethin with us involving his...tercer testículo...proving once and for all he was more man than ANYONE he was to face in the Mountain Boarding US Championships in Aspen, CO next week. Then he stripped down and joined in for a little while then proceeded to get out and passout on the couch.

hot tub
bubble bath to the max

the main event of this evening was the tale of Chris missing 3 days of work - no call no show - so go ride and shoot with the guys...he'd been working on a pretty legit mugshot of a friend and editing his face on there. he was just gonna go in say he' been arrested and thats why he hadnt been in - prtty good eh? i thought so. and with his skill in PS i was sure it was good as done....but Chris needed to make sure he didnt lose his job. So after about 20-30 min of Matt punching his brother int he face and Chris begging me to punch him in the face Matt finally busted Chris's cheek open pretty good...

chris face
wide open
matt and chris
brotherly love right there

Chris was not fired and ended up saving his job with his busted face.

so kyle and i had planned to go riding wednesday but woke up to rain and alot of it
so much the mtn didnt even open
which sucked
so i ended up only riding one day and headed down to portland early just for the sake of not haveing to wake up super early to catch my flight home.
so we tracked it back down to portland and hung out with Kyles friend Kyle (who for less confussion we'll call KV) who lived down in P-Town and roomed with a guy named Steve - pretty sure he rides for Rome. since he was pretty not happy that i was wearing a Burton beanie and had a Burton board and boardbag in his he gav me a new NEFF beanie.

Other Kyle and Me
steveand mee
this is steve - they were soooooo hammer drunk

long story short becuase im kind of over typing right now -
Kyle ended up leaving and meandring the streets
KV and i were swing dancing
Steve was totally diggin me
so was KV

and i was stoked lol

no one slept we stayed up until steve took me to the airport at 7 that morning to catch my 8:15 flight back home.
they were bummed
and so was i
they got kisses goodbye and a spooning fiesta like i had planned much earlier in the day.

in conclusion
this trip was slightly epic.
