Recon mission with @thesofttour to one of our favorite swim spots along the Columbia. Could have used some towels, or maybe a bundle of firewood, but planning ahead sometimes take the fun away from things. After all, we started off the day with plans to snowboard but bailed once we got to the mountain. No plan, no problem.
Random film from the last 30ish days. The overarching theme of “rediscovery” shed light on how much fucking fun it is to ride with buddies at the mtn after years off and driving the gorge for seasonal perspective, slippery hikes and some of the first warm rays of sunlight. It’s all the same but different. Fully ready for spring.
New @solzilla video out today. @coastalnoah@scottyuyeda and Sol always make this stuff fun as well as everyone on set. BTS photos by @aviloud@marinachoyy and a couple from me. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from helping on these projects, it’s to be positive and remain flexible. You never know when you might end up climbing psych walls or dressing up as a pizza boy. 🙏🏻
Looking at the weather forecast for the upcoming week and thinking back on snapping these frames from a day trip out east with @email@example.com and @jakepatt - they had just moved to town from Austin and I was almost certain they wouldn’t stick around the northwest for long. Thinking back on the interactions I’ve had with different people over the years and how those interactions have shaped my experience is a fucking trip.
Met Michael yesterday while moving dirt on a project for a friend. We spent almost 3 hours small talking about numerous jobs he’s been on over the years. I’m not sure what I’m trying to get at, but there’s so many folks out there doing cool shit, working odd jobs and living off the land where they rest their heads. That in and of itself brings me a ton of joy, and to see it first hand hammers it home. Living in the city, I find it easy to slip into the mindset/desires of wanting a faster paced lifestyle (which I don’t want to generalize as bad). It’s just that walking around in Michaels garden and touring his micro-dojo was a good reminder to enjoy the things you love most.
