Headin’ Down To Bend
Posted at 04:33 PM

Pat “the eYe” Bridges and Mark Sullivan, partners in crime/intertwined alpine lovers, are in Central Oregon for the weekend, breaking ranks from their day jobs to announce the Grand Prix (Grands Pricks) Halfpipe Competition Series. Bridges sets up athlete rosters and big air deals, Mark announces the pipe event. In all honesty, all that jazz and bullshit aside, they do a pretty good job with it all.

So I’m gonna head down to do some poachin’ of their all-expense paid suites.

Bend Fuckers on my list for ass-kickings: Noah, Yamada, Fink, Leonard, Port-o-feel’d and whoever else wants a little piece.

Should be a good time. Take a breather from the city action. Lots of good terrain to cover on the way down there. You go right past Mt. Hood–through the snowy forests–and into the high desert, past rivers, gorges and ranches. Beautiful stuff. Familiar terrain from the old days of my youth.

The workweek was a good one. Mean Dean kept the joint on par with his dilligent account managing. Thanks for keeping everything on track so well.

Weathered: On this fine Friday, Portland was treated to clear skies and a very perfect 58 degrees. The best days going, in my book.
