That's It, That's All...... That's just straight up amazing


On October 15th "That's It, That's All" premiered at Higher Ground in Burlington. Tons of people crowded in to what seemed to be a full house to see the this movie by Travis Rice and director Curt Morgan. Within the first five minutes of the movie I knew that it was going to be like nothing I have ever seen before. The camera angles were ridiculous. They had helicopters, filming helicopters, filming snowboarders. It was an extremely well made movie. As someone put it, "It was like watching a movie..... but with snowboarding in it." And of course the riding was amazing as well. From 30 foot high tree bonks, to Travis pulling a triple cork, to Pat Moore riding a snowmobile across a lake, it was hard not to be entertained. While Travis is pushing the sport, Curt is pushing the way snowboard movies are made. If you haven't seen it yet, get your hands on it as soon as possible. It will blow your mind. 

Curt Morgan, the guy behind it all

Trouble in Montreal

Trouble Andrews played live in Canada on October 10th. Since Burlington is only about an hour away from the Canadian boarder we couldn't pass up a chance to see the Trouble Gang live. So Blotto, Tom, and I loaded up the bikes and headed up to see the show at L' oympia in downtown Montreal. The following day we biked all around the city. If you ever really want to see a city get on a bike. It's faster than walking, and a better experience than looking at everything from behind a car window. 

On the way to the city.

What would you think if you saw someone in the car next to you who looked like this?

Good ol' Vermont Muddin.

So I took a trip up to Stowe today to go visit the Darkside crew and I ended up doing some muddin' with Ebo in his Zebra striped 4-Runner. We went all over through trails we probably weren't supposed to be on, but it added to the excitement. And the leaves were changing so it made for a beautiful ride... scary at times... but beautiful.

You would think a "you are here" would make you feel like you knew where you were... I knew where we were, lost.
