Tyler Werry going over a DH jump in a GS is the second most interesting thing in this photo. The most interesting thing is the billboard type thing in the top right corner. Lots of speculation as to what it is. No answers. Suspicion lies with aliens.

I remember when we first met.

It was in Kamloops on a brisk Oct morning, there was a freak snow storm ahead on the Coquihala. I was with my friend Nick and a van full of kids. Mike Janyk was on the front of the Vancouver Sun, dressed in Olympic gear, he had the hosser look. I was heading back from farnham. The barista introduced us, I didn’t give you the time of day, I thought that you were silly and irrelevant. A fad.

It’s been just over a year since we met, and here we are together, holed up in a small room together in Chile. You are the reason I get out of bed in the morning. You give me strength in the afternoon. You pick me up when I am feeling low.

I love you Starbucks VIA, you complete me.

Nicest looking stand around.




Local, organic, free-range, and unless the bicycle is just for marketing purposes there is no need to offset your carbon.

Sept 29.

General story usually means a wide assortment of goods, in this case it is a general lack of anything store. But it does have a great location.

Kailee and Jocelyn catch up on homework while catching up on laundry.

Video. Our sincerest appologies to Ben, we’re sorry video couldn’t be a bit more interesting, or more interesting than a rubix cube. Tommorow we will have dancing girls and a marching band in an effort to pique your interest.

Sept 28, big day.

Clear skys once again. Dykster sets the brower start.
