       This pre season our dear friends Sam & Maria found a cabin up a logging road on the duffy. The cabin had a nice mossy patch which would make a perfect open zone to set up some features to board. Although, in the pre season, before there is much of a base, this patch is more of a marsh, oh well. 
        




Sam drove the grey rail from the footyfiend house up the logging road and through the cross ditches to give us a feature to grind. The first mission up there the snow was hella icy haha. Riding icy bumps isn't the easiest of stuff. But, Bry seemed to have no problem as he put on a demo for us, doing everything first try. Riding year round sure does help huh.








On our second adventure we had three trucks on route up the now snowy road. Sam and Pat's made it with ease, but Ben's big rig didn't have the traction.  Once we got up there and had a pretty good session we decided to board out. This was the best part, most of us hitched Sam's truck in the flats and let go on the downhills. While trying our best to hop the cross ditches and evade the rocks.









All in all the zone was a success, although i dont think any of us are planning on going back now that we have snow in our own backyard. (backyard post coming up next~~~)

Late K-Town update

4rth year now road tripping to Killington I think, and I never regret it, especially this one. 8 hour road trip from bowmanville, immediately start with coffee and complimenting lady's haircuts at a small donut shop outside Cam's house. Traveling with Cam, Jordan, and Colin, was difficult not to have a good time. Man oh man, did we have some laughs through out this trip. We got ourselves a kickass condo like 2 min away from the mountain. Cam hooked it up, we had a squash court, hot tub, pool, sauna, and to end it all a nice fire inside the condo. First day on the Hill was anarchy. +13 march break weather, mans were boarding with there short shorts on. The line up to the only chairlift available were fucking huge. So we ended up going back to the joint to grab some beers and food, then went back up and hicked the park. Oh btw the park was PACKED. Second day, it was -5 full out blizzard mid winter kind of shit. This weather is fucked, we are fucked. Full on pow slashes all day. It kinda gave me a lil teaze for what whis is getting right now. Here comes the fun part, on our way home it did not stop snowing until we reached Oshawa, it took 11 hours to get home.. Cam almost put us in the cabbage 3 times, but he got us home safe none the less. Some time when we were out in the states, I believe Cam found a Dunkin Donuts gift card in a grocery store. So on our way home Cam decided to check if theres any money. Turns out there was 35 bucks on it. "DINNER IS ON ME BOYS" - Cam ... but the cashier lady screwed up or this card is some sort of Magic card or some shit, didn't really deduct the amount we were purchasing, instead it would put money on the card. It was fucked. We bought food and drinks, we paid for the food and drinks and then it added like 25 bucks. We don't know if we found a visa dunking donuts card, we don't know if we are wanted from Dunkin, who's know. Until next time DD . 

PS; we still have the card
