The first official "Slappy Sunday"

Last night was the first official "Slappy Sunday"
Glen Wagner and Texas Dan showed up for a super fun session.

The Mummies Portland road trip, Part 3

Our last day in Portland. We got the crew together and hit up a few skateparks.

Mikey was following this kook around one park.

We skated one of the BEST made to skate pools, Donald! Makes me remember the old Nude Bowl days.
(The digital camera isn't the best for taking skate pictures......)

After Donald, we got in the car and headed south towards home. Stopped at a campsite our friend Zach clued us in on.
We set up camp, made a fire and drank some Hamms (the official beer of the trip)

There's nothing better than a camping morning

The next morning was a beautiful sight.....

Packed up camp and continued our journey south. The LONG drive home. Got back to San Diego, had the best "after road trip" shower and passed out. The End.

The Mummies Portland road trip, Part 2

Arrived in Portland and headed to our friend Zach's house...........
Had a quick session at a park before the Mummies show.

The Mummies....... best live band ever. Oh, wait.... who is that diving off the stage? That's just Mikey Ratt. (he got kicked out, but with the help of a clever disquise he got right back in the show)

The next day Mikey and I went record shopping. (I bought a "few" records)

Zach showed us a DIY spot that looked fun.

Hanging out at the Connolly's

Skateboarding news from the midwest


The TURF! Growing up in Chicago, only an hour and a half away, I never got a chance to skate the Turf.
