so this is it, the route.
our sound system for the journey was slightly less then dialed, the burbs CD player and tape deck shit the bed on our last trip to Fontana, so we improvised with a power inverter and a trusty little boom box.
no sleep, shitty food and sustaining hours of the Nightbird's poisonous flatulence made me pretty grumpy most of the time. i retaliated with three in the morning flashlight attacks.
Chazz and the NightRobber called this section of road the slalom course, it was a little gnarly to hear the tires chirp on a fully loaded Chevy Suburban pinning it around corners at ninety but that's the kind of decision making you get out of a brain of a DH racer.
this thing was pretty cool we agreed its some kind of NAZI boob/helmet factory.
in closing, this pretty much sums up my feelings about our trip.

Some pics from the race.
first up: Philepe' Lorado fell early in his race run, bummer, but by the time he got to "Justice" he was so pissed off he was clearly the fastest guy down the section.
don't fuck with the NightBird he has access to a windowless van and tie downs.
Grampa Joe (superfan) is displaying all the necessary elements needed to enjoy a Down Hill race.
2. over sized double fanny pack filled with beer
3. a reliable noise maker.
4. lawn chair
along with proper accessories you really want to have a sturdy entourage, like these folks.
1. a couple of chicks with beer(that should be a no brainer)
2. your buddy who is way bigger and stronger then you. this will allow you to get really drunk and be a retard without the worry of getting your ass kicked in front of said girls with beer.
3. depending on your mood you may want to bring along a grumpy wizard in a hood.
these two guys have a few things in common.
1. a love of the letter Z
2. a love of "pinning it"

Great Robots in History (part 1)
R2D2 and C3PO
The only robots to appear in all 3 of the best movies ever made, and all 3 of the worst movies ever made. The dynamic duo was one of societies first tries at using robots for comic relief, following in the robot foot/track/pod/hover steps of Rosie Model 298b6 of the Jetson clan. R2D2 was the only robot to not have his memory wiped, therefore knowing the entire history of the skywalk...
AND HE CAN FLY AND SHOOT FLAMING OIL IN THE THIRD ONE WHICH IS TOTAL BULLSHIT GEORGE LUCAS YOU CAN'T JUST START MAKING STUFF UP WITH THE NEW MOVIES YOU BASTARD YOU'RE A TRAITOR TO THE ORIGINAL MOVIES.
Watch some kickass bike riding. Thank you Team America.

The new and the old. Dialed main line, soon to be dialed 12 foot berm gap line.
It's a berm gap. I know, it's awesome.
It ends in a solid 7 foot wall of vertical stacked goodness.
12 foot tall spiral landing. So much fun to land on...
