It wasn't long ago that I was being shuttled off to Washington to ride some of my first trails in the Pacific Northwest. I love that feeling of not knowing what your getting into. Staring out the window you dream about what the trail will be like, will you be able to hang with the group, are you getting in over your head, and did I bring the right gear with me. I love that feeling. I wonder what was going through Craig's head as we drove down the 84 towards Hood River. Craig secured a demo for the day and this would his second time riding some real trails. It's early. He's probably still thinking of a warm bed or a hot cup of coffee.

I made a film in Bangkok Thailand which was screened around the world in the Bicycle Film Festival. I even had the opportunity to work with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Anyways. It's been years since I've been remotely interested in getting back into film making. Technology is expensive and honestly I am really turned off on the whole my camera is better than your camera scene that comes along with it.
On my ride this morning I thought it would be fun to see what I could do with my little RX100. I am kinda stoked on how everything came out. With that said I am pretty interested in documenting my life in Portland and I might just start doing it on Youtube.
